    The bag it was in got water spilled on it and the camera was protected inside but still saw a little moisture.

    I opened it up and let it dry out.

    It does not turn on with the battery. It does turn on and take pictures if plugged into the charger. But not on battery alone?

    Battery show 3.1V on the meter but says it should be 3.6V.

    Any suggestions?

Dropped nikon coolpix s220 in water took out battery and memory card immediatly is there anything i can do or is it broke


Don't try to turn it on. After drying out the card and battery compartment as best you can, bury the camera in a bowl of dry rice for one week. Then, try to turn it on with your fingers crossed. I'm assuming the water was clear and not saltwater. You still may have a problem with water spots on the inside lens elements if any water got inside them.

I was taking photos and evertime i took a photo i turned it off,(i was on a plane) and then went to turn it on again, and it opened then lens opener (two black things) and then beeps 2 times and turns...


Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec .. in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
i hope it will gives you success

Water damage


Glad to see I'm not the only person to drop a digital camera in the water. LOL. Here is what I did to save my camera.
First remove it from the water. Take the batteries and SD Memory card out. Toss the batteries out. Dry the memory card with a soft terry cloth hand towel and set aside. Do your best to drain the water from the camera. There is still water in the camera. Give it about 3 or 4 days to let it dry out. Leave the battery lids off and prop the camera up onto it's side so any excess water can drain or evaporate freely.
Once the camera is dry, put a set of fresh batteries in (not rechargeables) but not the memory card. Power the camera on and see if LCD comes to life.

Hi! I got a Canon rebel XT. problem... the camera is dead


Like all electronics, water is it's worst enemy so even by drying it (which is commendable) you still may have traces of water somewhere on the circuit board. We all know water is conductive, so if some solder tracks were shorted there can be a problem there or if the water has corroded through a solder track the circuit fails. There are numerous chips in the camera that are super tiny so even the slightest water can damage them.

In my experience when something is water damaged (and seriously water damaged) it is beyond repair.

Repairing Sony H7


I HATE TO SAY THIS, BUT DROPPING IT IN SALT WATER IS ABOUT LIKE THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH ON YOUR COMPUTER. SALT WATER BEING VERY CORROSIVE WILL, IF NOT HAS RUINED ANY WORKING PARTS AND CIRCUITS IN THE CAMERA. DRYING IT DOES NOT REMOVE THE SALT AND THE DAMAGE WILL BE TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT REPAIR WILL BE ALL BUT IMPOSSIBLE. THERE JUST ISN'T ANY FIX FOR SOMETHING LIKE SALT WATER. I'M SURE THAT INSERTING THE BATTERY MOST LIKELY SHORTED OUT CIRTCUITS INSIDE THE CAMERA. THERE JUST ISN'T MUCH HELP HERE EXCEPT A VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR IF YOU COULD FIND ANYONE WHO WOULD EVEN WORK ON A SALT WATER DAMAGE. WATER AND CAMERAS JUST DON'T MIX.

Nothing transfered from the lens (ccd) to the screen/memory card


Greetings Maltheskalle,

Units that experience water damage are normally irrepairable even after drying out. I would take it to a qualified repair center and have them give you an estimate on repairing the unit. You may find that replacing the camera is more economical than repairing it.

Sincerely,

Dorothy

Water Damaged


ok there is one fix that i used with my canon sd700
again, it dropped it in the water and it stopped working
i took of the screen and changed the batterey wattage to 65w instead of 45w using a zxd breaker
then the "hotfix"
i pit it into a oven for 30 sec to get all compo. hot and then let it cool
i pressed the power button, and it worked!!
bad thing is the battery lasts about 5 or 6 hours only because of wattage change!

Turning on may have killed it. however try this. Take the batteries and card out and leave the doors open Take a polythene bag and place in it a quantity of uncooked rice or salt tied into a suitable cloth. put the camera in and seal the bag. leave in a warm dry place for several days This may save it -or it may not.

Camera dropped in a bucket of water


I very much doubt it. If you had removed the batteries straight away, stripped the complete camera and let warm air waft over it for a day and then put it all back together and tried it, you may have been lucky. But wet circuit boards and electricity is asking for major problems. Even leaving a closed camera for 2 days wouldn't have given it a good drying out.
