Stupidly but accidentally left my Canon PowerShot SD800IS outside on table and it rained!!! I can't see anything through the screen! Stick seems OK. Battery is functioning. What can be done. Thanks.


Well you can try not to turn it on and let it dry out in a DRY room

But if you turn it on after it was still wet or it was not fully dried ...Then

you have to bring it to a camera repair shop I would call around but

make sure that you do not tell them it was wet because it they may tell you that

there is more problems then just the LCD screen.... So if the board is wet and

there was power turn on there will be clear signs of the residue left from the rain...



You can also call Canon to see if they no of any Camera Shops in your area that will Repair 

it or Maybe give you a trade in credit towards a used or new camera,





Thank You

Toughbook CF-29 computer died


Torrential rain storm left out in it running? I'm sorry to say there is only one thing you can do for this laptop. "Do not turn it on at all again" Take the battery out of it and take it completely apart and use a blow dryer and dry everything out. "Everything" you may already be to late. Board may be shorted out and fried I hate to say it.
So take it apart piece by piece and top case and bottom case and dry it completely out. So that there is nothing wet or moisture is dissipated and gone. That is the only thing you can do to salvage this machine other than a new board, rain and left running in the rain is pretty easy to figure out that you may have ruined your computer leaving it running in the rain. "Lets hope this will work for you" I would be pleased to know if it did solve this matter drying it completely out." Do not power it up again until this is finished. John

Leapfrog leapster unit was left outside during a rain storm. Unit turns on but has no display on the screen. Is it fixable?


Try letting it dry...maybe the sun if it is out. If not, just leave it in your house for a while. Even if it may seem dry on the outside and nothing is "leaking", there could be some moisture left in there. If that doesn't work, then your unit may be completely fried.
Hope that helps ^_^

Left my samsung eternity out in the rain. Will turn on but won't respond to touch.


if you ever have a phone get wet, first thing to do is remove battery and allow a few days to dry before applying power. otherwise un-repairable damage will occur. try removing battery and allow to dry out in a warm dry place for a week or so.

I left my Sony DSLR our in then .. it didnt rain for a long time. When I finally remembered and went to pick it up it was completely dry .. we didnt turn it on and we took the battery out immediately .....


Hi!

You may keep it turned off until all the external parts and the battery compartments get dry. Furthermore, since the Camera has got wet in rain so there is possibility that rain water may have imbibed inside the Camera thus causing mechanical failure.

So, if the Camera doesn't turn ON even after drying it completely and charging the Battery fully. In that case, service will be required.

Wet ds


try taking the battery cover off and removing the battery, placing all of the items, including any games that was in the console when you left it outside, in a facecoth or light teatowel, Put all the items inside a airing cupboard, or on top of a radiator, for a couple of weeks, to see if you can dry it out.

Do not put the unit dirtectly on top of a radiator. you must place it inside a teatowel or a facecloth. this worked for me but cannot say it will work for yours.
