Question about Fuji FinePix E550 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Dropped my e550 in the river

It was off at the time and I took the batteries out right away, but after drying for two weeks I tried new batteries and it won't power up. Is it gone for good?

I'm afraid so. The insides of these types of cameras are very compact, with layers of circuitry and connections. You might have been able to save it (a slim chance at best ) if you had gotten it to a repair shop or removed the covers and dried it quickly.

I have rescued cel phones (my own), film SLR camera and lens from water damage, but they were still wet when I started. Your Fuji would be a pain to take apart since they used the tri-head screws on that model

Dropped in river in a leather camera bag for split second. Dried straight away just wont turn on have fully dried out in sun.


The sun only dried out the exterior, not the inside where the circuits are. If you tried to turn it on while still wet inside, you probably fried the circuits.

I dropped my archos 605 in water the screen went a blue colour before dying on me.is it a goner.


probably...especially if the battery is still powering the device when you dropped it. remove the battery right away and have the water drained. You can try to dry it in an airconditioned room for several days but not under the sun or inside the refrigerator :-)
Try to power it after several days or weeks..goodluck!

Wet camera


Was the camera on when it decided to go for a swim? If yes, it's probably time for a new camera. If no, then after weeks of allowing it to dry internally you should be okay.

Having turned it on before it was thoroughly dried out, it's very possible that the moisture shorted out circuitry....time for a new camera.

If you take the batteries out, the settings all revert. If you leave it open too long while changing the batteries, they revert. You might also be developing a poor connection to the batteries. IClean off the metal pieces which connect to the batteries with a dry abrasive substance. Good luck.
