My Canon 60d fell in salt water, briefly but enough to submerge. It has dried out and will now turn on but keeps showing error 70. Is there any chance this can be fixed? Could it dry out more and work?


I'm afraid the salt already started to corrode the inside of the camera. Are you sure you cleaned the connection points of the battery and memory card? I mean both the ones on the battery and memory card and the contacts in the camera. Do not use any sharp objects to clean the contacts, because you will damage them bend repair. If the error stays, you have to contact a Canon support centre close to you.

How can I get my LG VU messages from the cell phone once it fell in salt water?


Hello,

Once the phone falls in water, it will be able to work again all you have to do is to open it up and dry it.

But once the phone falls into salt water, the panel of the phone is totally gone and beyond repair.

The only messages you can get are those that are on your sim.

Take care

Fell in salt water, dryed it for 3 days, is displaying "battery is required... powering off" when the battery is in. ALSO " Repair mode, please remove the battery to reboot your phone. Is it a write off?


the fact that it fell in salt water is proberly affecting it, try rincing it in pure clean water and then let it dry out, that might help. water shouldn't affect the phone, but the sault would.

My camera fell into sea and now some of the features are not working.model DMC-FZ8


Unfortunately salt water causes all the electronic terminals and wboards to oxidize. Just getting plain water in. would work after it dried completely, but salt water , not good. You may be looking for a new one. Sorry

Binocular repair


Yes they can be but need to be completely taken apart and cleaned. The salt will corrode any metal parts such as screws etc. The water may have left a coating on the internal glass services. Any impurities in the water may cause fungus to grow. Professionally done this will cost a tidy sum so a quote would be best. The warranty wouldn't cover water immersion if they are not meant to be waterproof. You could ask but Minolta no longer make binoculars and have forwarded on their servicing here is the web address
http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/contact/binoculars/

You may find that for the cost of repair you can purchase a replacement set. Minolta binoculars are heavily discounted now. For sentimental reasons I have paid more than a binocular is worth to have it repaired.

If you are going to buy a new set and still want to try at home....BE ADVISED this may RUIN the alignment and you should ONLY DO IT if you are going to replace them and DO NOT CARE if they end up in the rubbish bin. THIS IS A LAST RESORT THROW AWAY FIX.

Try and unscrew the objective barrels, the ones with the large lens. If they come off you should have access to the inside. If they don't unscrew easily stop. You will damage them. Flush them out with clean water and let them dry naturally. Avoid letting them dry where dust can enter the inside. This may clear the salt from inside them, Depends on how long since they were dropped into the water. The salt may have caused damage to the glass coatings. When dry, screw the barrels back on. You may end up with a double image. This may be able to be corrected by loosening or tightening the barrels. THIS IS A HACK FIX AND YOU SHOULD ONLY DO IT IF THE COST TO REPAIR IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND YOU ARE GOING TO REPLACE THEM.

You have to open each side ( nikon travelite covers just unclip ) to get to the 4 prisms. Once opened to clean make sure you do not break the glue that holds down the prisms ( move the prisms in their seats and your alignment is out ). Clean with window cleaner and isopropanol to finish.

Phone fell in water


Most likely something got corroded inside of the motherboard, shorting out a component or two. Your only solution will be to open it up and clean it with a soft toothbrush or something similar. If that doesn't work, I guess you'd have to replace specific components on the board and that's no easy task...
