I just received my 8525 used, and up until today the camera worked fine. Now, it randomly opens the camera. Sometimes it will start snapping pictures on it's own, other times it just sits there. I can not manually take a picture. I tried setting the timer option, but in order for that to work you need to push the camera button. It's almost as if it's stuck. Is there maybe a setting somewhere that I messed up while playing with everything?

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
Since it's a new battery it might be the battery. If a battery will fail it will do so with the first 30 days of use. It sounds like you have never charged it before. You should bring it back to the store for a replacement to test it if possible with another phone. But since the phone suffered water damage the real issue is most probably the phone. If a phone gets wet sometimes it will work fine for a while after it dries or it won't work at all. But even if it does work you could start having random issues with it everything from random shutdowns/reboots, can't charge, can't stay on to issues like preventing you from receiving txt msgs or using the camera or media player. You might have to start shopping around.
could be the ribbon for the keypad has come loose from it's socket if it is affected randomly. Or it could be dirt or moisture on the keypad membrane affecting it. Only way to be sure is to open it up and have a look
the beeping is the battery being dead but the black screen with random stuff sounds like the LCD panel is busted. i work at a repair shop and have the same problem with my samsung s630 major problem...lcd panel is not available anylonger for that model.
Try running camera directly on DC from charger and see if it stays functioning.
If it does, they you either have:-
1) a faulty Lion battery
2) the battery detect circuit in the camera is faulty (reporting low battery and forcing shutdown)
3) the power switch on top of the camera may be leaky or partially collapsed
4) internal power supply circuit in camera has developed a fault.
Good luck...hope that the issue is the battery.
i've an fx8. i had a problem 2 weeks ago. my objective didn't want to close when i switched the camera off. it remained open. when i switched the camera on again, the objetcive has closed and opened again, and the _Turn Off the Camera and Turn On again_ message appeared on the sisplay. and remained in open position after switching it off.
i tried some button combination, like menu button on, and power the camera on. it didn't work, but the second was the shotting button on, power on combination. an it worked, my camera did some kind of reset. it returned to the original position, and everithing is working since then.
