Unfortunately if the Walkman is not serviced within the hour of the accident it is already to late. When water enters it corrodes the ic pins and eventually works it's way in the ic casing and other critical parts causing short circuits, even if it worked! it will go into cascade failure in a matter hours, days, or weeks depending on the situation. I recommend not sinking any money into it because it will be wasted. Any electronic boards must be washed in rubbing alcohol and other parts that are important to get rid of any water residue, and the units have to be completely dis-assembled to have a fighting chance of success.

Fell my xperia s in salt water

This happened to my phone once, I just took it apart (the bits I could, sim card, battery, cover etc) then dried it for quite some time with a hairdrier (on a cool setting) then left it over night apart. Put it back together in the morning and it worked. I'm guessing there was still water/ moisture inside of it to stop it working..

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.

Sony cybershot DS W80 is not switching since mother board is u/s. It fell in sea water. suspected problem in LCD also. spares are not available other than sony company servicing centres which is very...

The repair to any camera damaged by sea water will cost more than the cost of a new camera since everything must be replaced because salt water is corrosive. Add the replacement parts to the labor costs and you now have a repaired camera that cost more than a new one.

I have a sony ericsson k770i which fell into water accidentally, i immediately took out the battery and put it in sun light for some time then tried to switch it on, the two LEDs on the back side are...

Cell Phones and Water Do Not Mix Well.

If your phone is submerged in water for a SHORT period of time,
the proper way to attempt to save it, is to:

A) Remove the battery ASAP.
B) Open it up as much as possible.
C) Dry it out (Don't Put it in the Dryer!!!)
D) Clean all contacts with alcohol and qtip gently, allow to dry thouroughly for 24 hrs is best.
E) Make sure battery is dry as well.

F) then reassemble it and try your luck.

If it still doesn't work, it is done for.

From the sounds of it, you still have water in your phone, and if that's the case, you've probably already shorted it out/fried it. but try the steps above and MAYBE you got lucky.

Unfortunately, your warranty/insurance will not cover water damage!!!
but if you can "prove" that the phone is "defective" (the sticker under/near the battery is moisture-sensitive and is white when new, if it is colered (like pink or blue, that indicates you got it wet........then they willl know)......

HINT, HINT--- I boght a phone and it didn't have that sticker/sensor.......thus it was considered to be "defective" and they replaced it for free!......FYI.

There You Go, I wish you luck!

My sony cybershot is fell on water and its not

listen to your service centre advise!

ITS DEAD and has no understanding of REINCARNATION or raising itself from the dead.
Unrepairable means just that, it cannot be repaired because the water would have shorted out most of the motherboard. The cost of any repairs if there were replacement parts ( which there are not) would exceed its value

What if it accidentally falls into water?

Here is a possible solution. No guarantees.

Remove the battery immediately. Take a vacuum and hold over the open battery compartment for about 15 minutes. Do the same on the front keypad for 10 minutes. (Use a vacuum to draw the moisture OUT. If you use a blow dryer you can force the moisture further into the unit.)

Place the entire open phone down into a bowl of uncooked rice for 24 hours. insert the battery and recharge. It's been know to work, but like I guarantee. Good luck
