No, sorry. Seawater is every bit as bad as crushing or fire to any unprotected electronic devices.

Your camera is a total loss. The only faint chance of saving it would have been to immediately remove the battery and memory card and to immerse it in a large bucket of de-ionised fresh water (as used in car batteries and steam irons)... not exactly the sort of thing most folks have access to at sea or on the beach. Even then the chances of saving it would have been almost zero.

Dropped in the sea.


If it was dropped in the sea a couple of month ago it is dead. You need to remove the battery and repair it within 24 hours, and even then repair is iffy

I have a Kodak Easyshare C195 camera, I dropped it off of my dresser and now when I try to turn it on, it says "Lens Obstructed" If this is fixable, what should I do? Or where could I take it to...


It may be fixable but depending on the damage it may be more cost effective to replace rather than repair. If the camera is new it may still be covered under the manufacture warranty. I would take it back to where you purchased it to see if it is covered and if they can do service work. If the store can't fix it look up a local camera store and see if they do service work.

Hello my name is ashley, i have a question about my nikon coolpix s3000 camera. i accidently dropped it and now the camera lens got messed up everything else is working fine but is just the lens that is...


oh you silly boy,,,,,we have all done that in our time,,,what you have done is knock the lens gearing out of wack,,,well its busted for good,, as it may well be,,, but if you genteelly push on the lens when you turn off the carera it may help it to "jump" back into gear,,,but it may not!!!!
it may also help it if you stand the camera on its lens and turn it on and off a fuw times as well, once its back in the right place on its gearing it should be ok,,,,however you may need to have a camera shop try to fix it,,but thats very price and it could be cheaper to just buy a new camera,
just dont drop that one as well,,,,they brake easly?

If i lay a pipe 6 inches below the surface of the sea and let it fill up with sea water i lay it out under the sea at a 2 degree angle until it come out of the sea (due to curve of earth) will the sea...


I would say no. The water in the pipe that is above sea level will drop back in the pipe until it reaches sea level. Provided neither end of the pipe whether above or below the sea is blocked the level in the pipe will always find natural sea level so it wont be higher or lower than sea level. So in answer to your question No it wont pour out.

My neice's camera fell onto a tiled floor when the zoom lens was out and now it is bent and the camera doesn't turn on or off is this fixable?


Nope.. they are disposable.. My son worked in a camera store and that was the best "new purchase" feature, a dropped camera.

Camera dropped, lens won't retract or expand


You can buy a new A590 for under $110 these days, so the professional repair option may be out. 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:

"turn off and on again"


a few weeks ago i dropped my camera in the sea and i thought, ****. i was in the same boat, so i opened the shutter myself and turned on the camera and it works and takes pictures but the shutter wont close again so if you can make sure you have no dirt in your lense and you can manually open the shutter yourself it may work and if it stops turning on all together keep charging it and once it goes green turn the switch off and on again until it always turns green then it should work again.

Nikon L11 lens error


Hey meghanB,
One thing you could try is placing the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed upwards and press and hold the shutter button, while doing this turn the camera on. When you do this the camera should try to focus which sometimes will force the lens back on track. If this doesn't work you should have it looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out to be looked at. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
