  • alanbriers Oct 10, 2010

    I did not drop it in the water, it just got splashed by a wave. I took it out straight away and dried it off. It was not submerged at all and not wet to a great degree. Is there any way to reset the camera. There is a small button above the display button. What does this do ? do you have to press it for a set length of time ? Any other ideas would be helpful . thank You

The moment water enters into the cam the electronic circuitry and the LCD panel assembly is deep-fried. I am so sorry to tell you that there is nothing you can do, as the cost of repair will exceed the cost of the camera. You are better of buying a new camera.

Sea water damaged hardware of camera and its beyond any fix. Main board will be replaced to turn it On. It is not Reset problem.
Buy new camera will be better option as main board replacement would cost you more than camera worth.
Thanks.

Kohler 5E generator on my boat got wet there is no power at the 120 V. distribution panel now. Any ideas on where to start troubleshooting ?


  1. First you must clean it all, especialy the generator, windings, AVR etc. if it was wet with sea water (better do it with fresh water or electro-clean, than other liquids). Then you should dry it well (with a hot blower) for about, but not less than 24 hours, before starting.
  2. If you already started it wet, or it got wet while running, you may have some parts burned, with low insulation of cables, windings etc. Check the AVR, rings and brushes (if any) and other electronic boards for visualy burned elements or check the semiconductor elements (diodes and transistors) for proper qualities.
  3. You should check the gen. windings insulation resistence to hull (gen. iron) [all stator and rotor windings]. It should be more than 100 kOhm in order to let you start the generator motor.
  4. When dry and clean, with no burned elements you can start the engine. If it reaches its normal speed - measure the voltage on generator terminals, if it is OK check the connections (breakers, fuses) to the distribution panel. If it is very low under 30 V AC, the problem may be in AVR (Auto Voltage Reg. - Field DC supply)
  5. If the voltage is under 10 V AC, you may need to recharge the magnetic field with a 12 V battery connected shortly to field terminals - +/- respected.
If you fulfil these instructions and you need more help, please ask as an answer to this solution or on my e-mail: parlapanov@yahoo.com.
Please give some information about your generator: is it 5ECD, 5EKD or some other - then give some more details about it.

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Std water or sea water? If sea water throw away.

Std water get into you hot water cupboard to help dry out or It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Camera (DMC-FZ10) got wet in a rain storm. Now


I suspect that water has damaged the electronics board in the camera. Unfortunately this is not a waterproof camera. Water will corrode the electronic components and eventually ruin the whole camera,
My suggestion is to claim it on insurance as they wilol repair or replace it on Home insurance. No one puts a camera in water intentionally unless its an underwater camea, so its considered an accident
