I have a Nikon coolpix s9 camera and accidentally it got wahsed in the washing machine for more than an hour. We had kept the camera under the sun. It seems the battery was exausted and i dare not to charge the battery and switch it on.
Can i go ahead and charge the battery and try switch it on. Please let me know some tips. if possible mail me at email@example.com
The battery is sealed extremely well because it's lithium ion, dry it with a towel and charge it in the charger no problem I'm sure. The camera will need to come apart, it has moving parts and even if you could use compressed air (which is not always a good idea because static can fry chips from air rushing by if the air is warm enough) you would still have to get any particles of junk out of there. Get a magnifying glass, a complete jewelers screwdriver set (you may need a small flathead for something), and a cold can of compressed air from office depot or walmart. Your can temp should be about 50 to 60 degrees. Too cold and it will cause metal in the camera to condense water, too hot and the static electricity might fry a chip. Use short bursts. Make lens open and close with the battery in while it's apart to test it if you can. I've not had this apart myself but have had cell phones apart a few times.

Do you really want to download your pictures this way? The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. You can also use software such as Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX to transfer and organize your pictures.
