Remove batteries, put in sunshine for a day or two, or you can apply hair dryer periodically. This has worked occasionally, But mostly a wet camera is a ruined camera.

Salt water

Yes, because the water resistance is not effected by the salt content of the water.

Salt water is very slightly corrosive in it's natural state, but it can become very corrosive as it dries and the salts attract and hold on to moisture that can keep it's corrosive properties active long after you take it out of the salt water.

If you expose your camera to salt water rinse it off very well with fresh water once you're finished.

If you can see the seals in places like the battery compartment, you might also occasionally give those seals a coating of silicone grease.

If the worst happens and you notice moisture inside the camera, remove the batteries IMMEDIATELY and try to remove the moisture any way you can, even with cotton swabs if necessary.

Pure water is not conductive but most tap water and certainly salt water is, and if salt water bridges electrically charged parts of your camera when the batteries are in the camera, it will remove metal from one side and deposit it on the other side, (electrolsis), and that will permanently ruin you camera.

My camera fell into the water

What kind of water? If it is sea water it is probably gone as sea water is highly corrosive. Did you immediately remove the battery and leave it out? If not, then the water, which conducts electricity, could have sent over 300 volts from the flash circuit into the rest of the camera and fried a number of circuits. Without seeing the camera it is impossible for me to give any other suggestions

Canon d10 water damaged

Buy another camera. Cameras as opposed to cell phone cameras have a flash circuit and water is conductive, so you have 300 plus volts going into a 6 volt circuit. You can use the camera as a paperweight

Try to dry the compartments as well as possible. 5. Bury the camera in a bowl of uncooked rice for one week. 6. After that, try to turn the camera on with your fingers crossed.

I have this camera, and there is a theme for it that says "Underwater" is this camera able to go underwater? The lense looks as if.

No, it is not water proof camera so unable to shoot underwater without water proof casing that is another product. Camera must be packed in water proof casing to take pictures underwater.
Click Sony Support link to download optional accessories brochure rleated to DSC-T700 and check AKP-THA water proof casing for this model.

Water damage

Glad to see I'm not the only person to drop a digital camera in the water. LOL. Here is what I did to save my camera.
First remove it from the water. Take the batteries and SD Memory card out. Toss the batteries out. Dry the memory card with a soft terry cloth hand towel and set aside. Do your best to drain the water from the camera. There is still water in the camera. Give it about 3 or 4 days to let it dry out. Leave the battery lids off and prop the camera up onto it's side so any excess water can drain or evaporate freely.
Once the camera is dry, put a set of fresh batteries in (not rechargeables) but not the memory card. Power the camera on and see if LCD comes to life.

Under water scene selection mode in the camera is to capture the images of the objects inside the water like fish etc. It gives a clear picture of the objects under water unlike other modes. It does not mean that the camera is water proof and you can insert the camera in water and capture images. If you have any further questions, please reply. Regards
