Yes there are fuses. Unfortunately, by exposing the camcorder to salt water, it is probably a write off. I personally would not guarantee any repairs to a unit exposed to saltwater (or any water for that matter). Salt water is EXTREMELY corrosive and can cause problems long after the exposure happened.

Fuji finepix s1500 water splash damage. my fujifilm finepix s1500 had a slight water splash from a wave on a beach. Now it wont start up/work. It was dried immediately, and i underdstand that salt water...


It might be the salt water has got into its main chip circuit board or may be its blocking the power switch circuit. And there is a chance of the lens motor being stuck by it. You can also try another battery or recharge your battery and try it again. If you have no other choice that throwing it and buying another one then try washing it with normal water, let it dry then try again.

Hi,

You have inserted battery in your camera after splashing water onto it. Switching ON the device caused short in the circuit. It needs to be send for service (repair), there is no other way to fix the problem.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated....Good Luck

I accidentally splashed my camera with a bit of water and now when I try and turn it on all I get is the green light when I flick the power button. Is there any hope?


Hi,

in your case, do not try to turn it on any more, you could end up damaging it even more than it already is. In your case, you can send it for repairs, I believe that it can be saved, but that all depends on where the water got and what "went bad". Dont give it up just yet, send it over to Fuji service for diagnose and let us know how it turned out for you!

Slat water in camera


Digital cameras will not tolerate any moisture inside them. Sorry to say you will have to get another.

Salt water splash....


I hope by now you've taken it to a repair shop - salt water is deadly to any camera after 2 or 3 days it'll be uneconomical to repair.
