The camera comes apart with a screw driver; numerous little phillips screws keep the rig together. Tear it down enough until you think you've got all the places water may be residing and then put it under a low heat source like an incandescentbulb and let it slowly dry out, maybe a couple a days and then put her back together and give it a go. Don't give it battery power until you're sure there's no moisture in the electronics. If you dropped it salt water, wash it out using fresh water, then dry it out. Don't try starting it up while it's wet. Good luck

How can i get the firmware for the kodak easyshare CD14 ?

You could try the actual Kodak site, but if the camera has been immersed in water it is probably ruined, and installing firmware is unlikely to help.

My Canon Powershot A470 showing "lens error restart camera". It fall last week on marine drive in water so what to do.


Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

The problem might be that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

The camera was exposed to rain and it won't even turn on.

Hello. Please follow these 5 easy steps:

1. The most important of all, DO NOT try to start your camera.
2. Loosen the battery cover, remove the battery and put it somewhere to dry.
3. Wipe the camera immediately with a paper towel or anything that absorbs water well.
4. Use a powerful vacuum to absorb the water droplets which you can't reach with a towel (such as those inside the case).
5. Put the battery and the camera in a bowl of uncooked rice by covering it completely. The rice absorbs the moisture from the air very well so that it will help drying your camera. Keep it there for 24 hours or so.

I hope it helps!
If you have any other questions, please leave a reply!

My Lumix DMC-FX8 won't turn on. I've charged the battery until the charger light was green and tried again but it just won't turn on. Help me please. Any solutions?

Welcome to FixYa.

First thing you need to check is if you inserted the battery in the correct direction.

Second possible reason, is if LCD is turned off even when the camera is turned on. In this case, possible that you set the camera into the power save mode or economy mode activated. What you just need to do isto press the shutter button halfway to cancel this modes.

I hope this will help you on your issues on your camera.
Feel free to send us your comments and suggestions if this solution is helpful.

I have this camera, and there is a theme for it that says "Underwater" is this camera able to go underwater? The lense looks as if.

No, it is not water proof camera so unable to shoot underwater without water proof casing that is another product. Camera must be packed in water proof casing to take pictures underwater.
Click Sony Support link to download optional accessories brochure rleated to DSC-T700 and check AKP-THA water proof casing for this model.

Olympus SW 790 won't turn on after hitting the water.

Water and camera do not mix, water corrodes electrical contacts. I would suggest if you are taking a camera around water to buy one of the new water proof camera. Also salt water contact on a camera is like an acid bath. All major camera manufactures repair shops will not repair water damage.

Won't turn on

You can try to clean it do this by following these steps: 1. Clean the inside of your camera by opening the back and then blowing the dust out with a can of compressed air, or with a bulb tool that blows air when you squeeze. 2. Clean the lens by blowing any dust off with compressed air. Use a special lens cleaner and lens cloth to thoroughly clean the surface. 3. Wet a cloth and wring out as much water as possible. Use this cloth to clean dirt off the camera casing, making sure no water seeps into the camera's interior. 4. Use a dry soft-bristle toothbrush to clean out the crevices of your camera's casing. 5. Rub dirty battery contacts with a pencil eraser. Although, this is not a common problem..if cleaning it out does not work you are better off going back to the store and either returning this item or demanding a repair service.
