Panasonic Digital Camera DMC-TZ1- Water Damage

Well, my youngest granddaughter (2) grabbed my camera and jumped into the tub with it while grandpa was "supposed" to be watching her. Now, the camera will not do anything- not even power up. Is this completely lost and I should just go out and buy another? Or can I try to repair it myself? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

This won't be the youngest, so after all these years some belts or rollers are worn out. You can't replace those yourself. To repair it will take at least a few hours, so I think you better start saving for a new cam. The modern camera's don't have moving parts, ro they are supposed to live longer. They also have better recording quality and are much cheaper than the Hi-8 we used to buy. My TR-2000 from Sony has the same problem. Costed 1800 dollar almost 20 years ago.

Tub will not stop trunning at the end of cycle could it be a belt

I do not believe it is the belt. Their is a brake on the washer not that much unlike the brakes on your car,and 1 of 2 possible things are causing it not stop;
1) the brake lining is wore out and not holding and it needs to be replaced

2)the main tub pulley is hanging up and not engaging the brake as soon as a power is no longer send to the motor,as soon as motor stops rotating the brake is suppose to engage immedietly

to check which it is,is not to complicated,pull the washer out some from the wall and tilt it back so the control panel is resting on the wall and the bottom frame has been raised somewhat upward. remove the belt by grabbing it and while pulling down rotate it off of the main pulley and then turn the main center pulley in a clockwise direction a full 360 degree rotation,then while very carefully watching,turn it in a counterclockwise direction and see if it rises about a 1/2 inch then release it and it should move byitself back down. if it rises and drops back down it the pulley is good and the brake lining must be replaced, if no rise the pulley is what needs to be replaced.
oh i forgot to say remove the white plastic cover to see the rise/return of the pulley

Hello Renee,
I had the exact same problem and fixed it in a few minutes. What you actually need to do here is to call nintendo's customer service. They will walk you through the various steps that need to be taken to unlock it again.

When I click on music, it says "Warning no music file" My Granddaughter just got this Sylvania MP3 Player for Christmas. She's 8 and Grandpa is not real computer savy

after downloading with windows media player i got this message as well. i pressed the reset button at the top of the player (a staple works well). it cleared the error and all of the songs that i downloaded were there.
