Be sure to take the battery out immediately after any electronic item gets wet...also check into the possibility of using alcohol, like rubbing alcohol of low water content to help dry....my brother used it on his cell (batter and sim card removed)..he dipped it and shook it out a couple times and let it dry....started to work fine....havent tried it myself tho...he is an electronics engineer and said water will cling to alcohol and alcohol is not bad for electronics...I am doing more checking on this

Camera fell in water & stuck lens


If the camera works, but just the lens is stuck, that shouldn't cost much to repair. But don't try to fix it by yourself, go to the service.

My Sony Camera fell in the sea water, can it still be fix? How?


Salt water damage is very bad for electronic devices, especially if the device was switched on at the time when it was dropped into salt water.
The cost of repair if you can get someone to repair it would most like be very expensive.
I would recommend you purchase a new camers, it most likely be a later and better model.

My sony digcam lens is stuck.. it just make some annoying sound but it doesn't close completely or open at all. it just say off and open ur cam.. how can i fix this? it fell 4 feet high.. but it...


Hi.

The drop has cause internal damage to the moving parts of the camera. The shock of the camera hitting the floor will have caused this.

The cost of the repair will differ depending on the damage caused by the drop.

You can get a quote directly from Sony by clicking on the link below or you can take the camera to a certified repair store.

If not here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the camera: Dry the camera, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, camera and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped camera in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your camera because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the camera. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

My camera fell down and now the len doesn`t come out properly can it be fixed


My friend had that hapin, the lens got stuck and the camera wouldn't turn on. I first asked if she still had warrenty on it. When she told me the warrenty was probebly long over, we concluded that there would be nothing to lose by try ing to fix it.

I carefully forced the zoom back by hand, after that it worked fine again.

Fell on the pool but it's off when it fell and it turned on but later on it did'nt turn on anymore


The water inside the camera became conductive and did damage to components on the circuit boards, and possibly did some damage to some of the mechancial parts. The camera would have to be rebuilt.

From past experience this type of repair has not been worth the cost. I would shop around for a new camera.
