Hey,

hair dryer won't do it, you need a heat gun, and take the camera apart, completely dry all parts of the camera.

Another solution is to take the camera apart as much as possible, put its parts into a air tight container and fill it with rice, leave it sitting for a day or two.

that will get rid of the water and moisture, put it back together and hope it works, if it doesn't it might be a lost cause.

Tip

How To Quickly Repair Your Mobile Phone Dropped In Water


Now, there is no need to panic if your mobile phone gets dropped in water or you get stuck up in a bad rain and your clothes as well as your mobile phone gets wet. All you need to do is follow the following three tips that will fix your phone with water damage:-

(A) Act Quickly : straight away get into action and remove every cover and detachable part you possibly can like memory card, the SIM card, battery and back cover, etc. Now use a toilet paper or a thin cloth to blot away any excess water you can see inside of the phone and be sure to get as much as you can. Otherwise, all this water will start evaporating and collecting in hard to reach various places in your phone.
Your phone may work now if it was only submerged for a short period of time.


B) Quick Drying : Grab a hairdryer and start drying your phone paying extra attention to the battery housing as this normally has small holes which allow air (and ironically enough water) into the phone.

warning: Don’t hold the hair dryer too close to the phone. Keep it at a distance whereby if you put your hand in front of the hair dryer it would not burn you. Bringing it closer could damage your phone’s electrical components. If i am sounding serious, try putting a hair dryer up against a sheet of paper for a few seconds. It turns it brown – would you want that happening to the inside of your phone?

If 20-30 minutes of this doesn’t work – go to plan C.


C) Long Term Drying : By putting it in a warm dry place you allow the water to slowly evaporate and escape through the holes in the phone (remove the covers and battery when doing this).

If it was dropped in water ,it must've fried the power chip.This Can Not Be fixed with a hair dryer...if you take it down to a computer repair shop they coul replace the chip for a price of around $400 (depend whether other parts or circuits have been harmed) I've done this before on my t100 and I spent at least $500 for the chip and the LCD screen.

Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped camera in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your camera because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the camera. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

The lens cover is not really needed, but you can replace it yourself if you can find that other part. If you can't find it, just remove the lens cover entirely and just be careful with your lens. Here's an example:

Water behind lens of Canon Powershot


If you can see condensation, then please do not switch on the camera.

Let it dry off. You could mildly use a blower(hair dryer) to dry , but not very powerful.

Once the condensation is dried, then if light spot remain and does not interfere in the quality of the photgraphs, it might go away in time. But if it is bothering you. Then you better take it to the nearest Canon service center, who will open and service your camera.

Best of luck.
Let me know if you need any help. Thanks for using FixYa!

Normally the extent of the problem will depend on the amount of water seepage. I don't know the details of this particular phone but in general it is the moisture trapped under the keypad that can cause the problem. If you can open the keypad and run a hair dryer on low heat across for a few minutes that might help. It is also possilble the battery is discharged because of the drain of current due to water causing internal short circuits. Take out the battery, dry off the phone with hair dryer and put the battery in. Connect the charger and hope for the best. By the way I am not a phone technician.

Lens cover stays open


Try blowing lots of compressed air around the open lens shutter to clean the mechanism. Or use a hair dryer for a few seconds (don't want to heat up the camera). Also with the lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. A grain of sand in the mechanism is usually the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it.

You can open it up, but only as a very last resort. The above procedures usually work if you try them enough. But for those particularly nasty stuck mechanisms, here's an example repair on a Canon Powershot A400 (do this at your own risk, and it will void your warranty):
