Question about Kodak EasyShare V1003 Digital Camera
The camera barely went under the water but for electronics water doesn't mix well. We put it in a bag of rice and the next day it turned on but the flash won't work and the menu buttons on the back aren't working right. I am sure water is not covered under warranty.... so... do you have any suggestions on how to get it functioning again? Maybe a new battery? The camera was off when it him the water.
Well you are right , water and electronics don't mix but you may be able to save it. I did this just the other day with my digital recorder that fell out of my pocket and into a tub ow water. chances are 50-50. i quickly grabbed it and removed the batteries. Opened op the case as best I could and let it sit for a few days. Moister rises. If you place a plastic sandwich bag in an area of humidity, say outside, it will collect moister. people say to place carpet in the garage to stop moister but this just collects it as it drops from the car as it rises in the air. Anyway, a hair drier will speed things up also. It may or may not work again but it is worth a try. Be careful, the electronic flash device will give you a shock you will never forget if the photo flash capacitor is still charged. My digital recorder works great after taking it apart and letting it dry out. If using a hair dryer put it on the lowest setting. Wait a few days and re-charge or re-place the camera battery and give it another go.
I hope this helped some and let me know the outcome.
