Drying on theouttside may not work much but most often the damage is done when there is water that conducts through the delicate circuit within. So the best option is to get the camera opened and checked. If you are lucky a fusible link can be the only fault but do nott put back the battery unless it is opened and checked. You may need luck anyway

A little water got into my camera lens now it can't take photo in the properly inthe day it is all white, in the night its a little better but still not perfect


first thing if you got water in your camera, take out the battery, open the battery chamber, dry it with fan for a night or if you have silica gel, put in a lot of silica gel in a plastic bag with the camera inside it for a night, silica gel will absorb the water.

I had my nikon s4000 in a zip lock bag INSIDE a ziplock bag and went rafting....I fell in the water and some water got into the bag with the camera. First solution is-never take a camera on a rafting trip...


Hello

Yes, i second you on the first solution...

But, now that it is done already, we need to try something else to resolve theproblem.

OK, firstly you will need to understand that water damage is a very bad thing. That is why the brand companies don't give warranty on this particular problem.

OK, firstly, you need to take out the battery and the memory card.

Place the camera in a sealed container filled with 2 cups of rice. Keep in the container for about 48 hours.

If this does not work, it is most probably a circuit error, die to water damage.

Please let me know if this works. Also, do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards
Andrea

My ds isn't reading the edge card all of a sudden. Other games work fine, just the edge. I'm thinking it might be water damage from a humid room or a spilt drink that I wasn't aware of. Any help?


Try this you suspect the water damage from a humid room :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

GET OUT OFF GREEN MODE


geeze! after reading all the little advice i could find.... i came across a picture of my camera - what it looked like brand new. and i realized that all the time i had been confused about the constant advice: "press the green button to get out of green mode". confused because my camera had no "green button"..... i didn't realize until i saw the picture of what my camera looked like new, that infact my camera did have a freakin green button! it had just been worn off over time!! and infact the button that is the "trash/delete" button..... was actually colored GREEN when i first got it!! good lord!! i hope there's someone out there that has had their pentax so long that the color-coded colored buttons have worn off..........  i feel kinda dumb, seeing as how the "green button was right in front of me the WHOLE time!!

Water has been spilt on my panasonic fx 500 camera. The lense is still foggy after 4 hours. Is there anything i can do? It has been outside for hours


Remove battery and memory.
Find a zip lock poly bag that will hold the camera and a cloth or paper back containing salt or rice or flour
put both in the bag put in a warm place and leave for several days.
The contents of the cloth/paper bag should draw moisture out.

However if the camera has been switched on whilst in its wet state
it is probably irrepairable.

The reset button is actually a little circle between the memory card, and the little blue arrow thing that holds the battery in.
