Ok there is one fix that i used with my canon sd700
again, it dropped it in the water and it stopped working
i took of the screen and changed the batterey wattage to 65w instead of 45w using a zxd breaker
then the "hotfix"
i pit it into a oven for 30 sec to get all compo. hot and then let it cool
i pressed the power button, and it worked!!
bad thing is the battery lasts about 5 or 6 hours only because of wattage change!

Dropped my camera into a river was submerged for about 3 sec , but it did not actually hit any thing , was in my hand all the time . I took out the card and battery , next day I turned it on it came on...


Hello

The best thing you could do after this would have been to submerge the camera in distilled water and then open it up and dry everything.

The problem is that since the river water conducts electricity , there has probably been a short ciruit in the camera when you switched it on. This could have damaged any number of components inside and it will probably cost (depending on what camera you own) upwards of $200 to have it fixed so it may not be worth your while.

The lens is also a hit or miss. If it's a fully mechanical lens with no electronic components , I would send it away to have it professionally opened and cleaned. If it's a automatic lens , this may cost considerably more as they will probably have to replace the driving motors and electronics. I would put a clean and repair at about $150-$250.

All and all , it may well not be worth it and you could try selling the camera on e-bay as damaged for when someone needs some parts. You should be able to get a few bucks for it but don't count on too much.

Kind Regards
Andrea

If you're saying the lcd screen no longer works, you are correct in assuming the water damaged it. You were correct to allow the camera to dry completely before trying to turn it on so at least the rest of the camera works. The screen can be replaced but it can be expensive. Shop around and decide if the repair is worth it.

Drop GE A1230 digital camera in water. Let dry and now wont power


Unfortunately, there are several parts that may be damaged with water. It doesn't matter if it's already dry. Water contains lots of minerals and other material that are conductive. Once the water evaporated, the conductive materials stays in the electronics.

As you have a broken camera anyway, you can try:

* Using a hair dryer, blow some hot air (no the hottest level) inside the camera. protect display away from the heat.

* Get a new camera to replace the damaged one.

Sorry Ricky, I don't think it can be fixed.

Your digital camera is an electronic device, they will not tolerate moisture, it gets into the circuits and you are looking at what results. A damaged camera.

There is a sensor behind the lens of your camera that takes light and converts it to electrical signals that in turn is decoded by the board. If the sensor is damaged, there will be no picture to display only what you have in the memory stick. Work on it. Good Luck

if the resulting images are the same, you have damaged the camera settings/controllers. see how they look on your computer.
if only the display on the camera is damaged, you should consider asking for a flat rate repair. most makers offer a price for major and minor repairs, and never charge beyond that.
good luck
