My husband told me he accidently dropped soda and the camera got wet, not much though. Everything works but the ability to take a picture. The camera turns on, I can view pics, add borders, but but when I push the button to take a pic nothing happens. When I try to set a timer to see what it does it says it cannot do it while the camera is docked...I'm not good with things like this so I'm not even sure what that means.

Well, I would take the Nikon Coolpix camera back to the retailer that sold it to you and ask to talk to the manager about this discrepancy.
Apparently, it says in the fine print that when you purchase a Nikon camera, and it is dropped, that the extended warranty doesn't cover this.
I would tell the retailer that the associate told you that 'EVERYTHING' was covered and you were under the impression that it covered dropping it as well.
I would tell the retailer that you will report them to the Better Business Bureau for misleading statements by a salesperson and see what the manager tells you after that.
It's true that extended warranty plans cover normal wear and tear items, and not abuse or misuse as indicated by dropping it accidentally or getting it wet in the rain, but I would ask the higher ups at the retailer about the warranty being honored since you paid for it.
Chances are you did create a short circuit. But, even if you would have given the camera a week to dry buried in a bowl of dry rice, the stickiness and the acidity of the soda would have continued to cause even more damage. Unless you're willing to spend some serious money to fix it, I would consider another camera and a more careful lifestyle.
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!
