For sure your buttons are contaminated. About all one can try in this case is to take the camera apart and spray some electrical contact cleaner to try to clean it up as best you can. There are usually 5 or 6 very small phillip's head screws that hold the camera body together, but you will have to be careful taking it apart since the back of the camera is connected to the main board by ribbon connector(s). You can carefully lift the tabs on them, and disconnect them, then inspect the camera for areas that were possibly effected by the spill. Spray them good with the cleaner, and allow them to totally dry, before turning the camera back on. You can reconnect the ribbon cables to test the camera before putting it back together, and, with any luck, get it functional again. Oftentimes the damage is too severe to be remedied, even with a good cleaning, but there is always a chance. If you need to know more about the procedures of disassembling the camera, there are many videos on YouTube that show how, just looks for videos on "Digital Camera Repair". Sometimes you can get lucky and find your make and model, but they're all basically the same, with minor variations. Good luck, hope this helps, and hope you get it back into working condition!

I own a Nikon D-50 and this past saturday i spilled wine all over my bag, and my camera was in there. it did get wine on it, so at first it was really screwed up and ive been letting it dry and drying it...


A spill on an electronic device requires immediate wipe dry to prevent seepage into internal least accessible areas. Soon after the fluid is dried off, the electronic device should funtion as before. However, certain components may least require contact with fliuds. For cameras, the lens areas should be protected from very particles. Once the camera is wiped dry of the fluid, chances are that a refunctionality mode would be resumed. However, if being incapable of ascertaining the extent to fluid seepage, consult with a technical expert to open device for blow cleaning. The camera may simple still have particles obstructing snap shots since clearity is required to acquire photographs. refer to the cameras user guide about disgnosing malfucntions. Also, attempt to ascertain about the cameras warantee durations. The manufacturers is usually capable of replacing accident devices.

My Canon SLR screen display's "No card" eventhough


Your card needs to be formatted to the camera. Once the memory card is opened on a computer to look at or download the pictures the card needs to be formatted to the camera it is going to be used in so the camera and card and properly communicate between each other.

How to view photos


To view them on the camera lcd screen, press the playback button (green arrow in a green box, 2nd button down to the right of the screen) and then scroll through them one by one using the left and right buttons on the thumb pad. If you press the up and down buttons the image will advance forward and back by ten pictures each time.

To view them on a tv, turn the camera off and connect the video cable supplied with the camera to your tv input terminal (yellow). Turn the camera on set the tv to display the input feed and then use the camera playback button as before.

To view them on a computer, you'll need to upload them to the computer first. The best way is to turn the camera off and remove the memory card, and then insert it into a memory card reader connected to your computer. The computer will then prompt you to upload and display the images.

OK, it's simple really, go to the below website and find and download your driver, install the Driver and software, then, when you connect up with the USB cable, the PC will "See" the camera, then you should see the camera as a "Drive" and as such you can, copy, pate, and cut, as normal.

Spilled wine now cant get camera off movie mode


Turn camera off! Take out battery!
Now, with NO Electrical contact or power in it, try to clean wine residue away from any moving parts with clean water and try drying unit slowly in front of a heater or hair dryer. If available, put a small amount of WD-40 in the same areas, making sure to wipe away any drainage or excess. Allow to dry overnight in warm area, pehaps by heater, but don't let it get too hot. Reinstall battery and turn it on.
It should work find now. Good Luck!

Wine spilled on camera - repair or buy new one


It would be quite difficult to bring this camera back. I would suggest buying a new camera and keeping it away from the wine. Even if you did get a quote you liked and decided to get the camera repaired it is unlikely that the technician would be able to restore it to pre-wine functionality.
