Eos110 dropped in sea water


This is not good, salt water is extremely corrosive and will destroy the camera in a matter of hours, I suggest pulling the memory card to save any photo's if possible and transfer contents to a computer.

Dropped camera into the sea while it was switch on now completly dead, any ideas if it can be fixed!


Sea water is corrosive and just gets worse over time. Most repair facilities won't even bother with your camera. If you find one that will, the cost will be enormous...they have to replace everything including the lens. Buying a new camera is much cheaper.

Dropped Sony Camcorder in sea water


This isn't a solution specific to your problem, but maybe similar enough to help. I've dropped both my cell phone and iPod in the water. My friend told me to fill a bowl with uncooked rice and submerge the cell phone in the rice to draw out the water - took about 2 days and all was working fine - same with the iPod, but it took longer (about a week.) You might want to gently clean the battery connections with a Q-tip if you're seeing residue. Good luck!

If the lens was misaligned during the fall, that would explain an error like that. It sounds like it is not well in any case. Time for a new camera maybe... :(

Problem with the lens


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Delicate electronics and acid (salt water) make poor companions. Any time you get a modern camera anywhere near the ocean it's only a matter of time until it's gets just a drop or two of sea water in the wrong place. One must consider a underwater camera a expendable item. As a retired SCUBA instructor/dive guide and repair tech, I, knowing exactly what to do and how to carefully prep a camera for under water use, have killed several.

Likely your son had a speck of dust or lint or a hair across the sealing surfaces when he closed up the camera. That's all it takes.

Contact the company about repair, but be ready to say "it's not worth it" and just get another camera. They ALL leak eventually, IMHO.

Hi,

The camera's charge-couple device (CCD) within the camera must have suffered a short-circuit due to the sea water, rendering the imaging device damaged. As a result, the battery would drain pretty quick while its switched on.

Please take the camera to the nearest service center to have it repaired.

Thanks!

Sea Water problem


You'll need to buy another camera. If it had of been fresh water you could dry it out and MAYBE it would work, however, salt water shorts out the electronics. (salt conducts electricity, blah blah blah.)You could try putting it in fresh water since you can't make it any worse, then let it dry out and see what happens. In my experience, salt equals death.
