Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Hi, I have dropped my Sanyo VPC CG-9 into water and now, after drying it up, there are small waterstains left on the lens inside the camera. Is it possible to strip the camera to fix it myself? If possible how do I do it? Can I get my hands on some kind of guide to do it? Best Regards Daniel Blomqvist, Sweden

    Thanks for your answer. I forgot to mention that the camera works just fine execpt the stains on the lens. I have tried to strip it but could not get in to it without, as I felt, breaking it. If I could get some kind of step to step guide it would help me alot.

If the camera was dropped into salt water, "game over" fresh water! then the device must be stripped down in the first hour to have a chance, all parts must be cleaned with an alcohol base solution to remove water stains from boards and lens. The ic pins will corrode quickly and move into the casing making the camera unusable, I suggest you don't sink any money into the item because the damage from your description indicates it is already to late.

    The camera will function for a while, hours, days, and weeks until it breaks down. Unfortunately all camera's comes apart in different ways, you could try going on line to Sanyo site, and go to customer support and ask for the technical department, it might be possible to get a download of the service manual if they are willing. But to be honest! I have done alot of electronic repairs that got wet and in almost all cases they failed.

Inside of the lens is dirty


Cleaning internally is not a simple job, it requires special tools and as the camera lens has hundreds of small parts is not a job that can really be done.

My sanyo vpc e1292 says lens error 0x03110000


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Wait for it to completely dry out. If you still have the same problem, the circuitry is probably damaged because of the water.
Contact Sanyo tech support and see if you can get it replaced under warranty. (Dont mention that you dropped it in water, though :)
