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.

I have a Panasonic digital video camera and use their videocam suite software. How can I send a video clip by email to friends. Can't seem to work it out! Thanks Emma


theres a possibility that the video file is too big. or the format of the video is not recognized by their system.

things you can try:
* try converting the video format to a Mp4, or other video format..
* try to compress the file before attaching it in the email

Camcorder water damaged.


try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Videocam charging and keeping moisture out


The internal charger in the camcorder has sensors to prevent overcharging. Be sure to use an original JVC battery, as there is also a sensor in the battery to prevent overcharging and the inexpensive replacement batteries will not have the same sensor (some have NO sensor at all!)., In terms of keeping moisture out, avoid going from an extremely cold environment to a hot one, or vice versa as this can cause condensation to form in the camcorder. If you are taking the camcorder to a place where it might get wet, say the beach or out in the rain, place the camcorder in a ziploc bag to protect it. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

TRouble shooting help needed for the error E:60:10


Non distilled water is conductive. Salty sea water is the worst. The fact that it's conductive means that it's short circuiting the camera when still wet, and if you had the camera on at the time or before it dried then you're likely to have fried it to some extent. apart from that, the longer it has been since it got wet, before you opened it up and serviced it, the more damage you allowed to set in. Corrusion from the salty water is eating away at the electrical boards, and before long the damage is irepairable. You should take it to a lab ASAP when something like this happens and hope they can save it. If the camera got only slightly splashed then there's a chance the damage is only local and can more easily be fixed. Sorry, and I hope you get away with it ;]
