My camera sony dsc-t77 was merged in swimming pool so it doesn't work completly


Maybe the battery of your camera is wet. Try to quickly dry your camera's battery in sunlight and then put the whole camera ( excluding battery ) in sunlight. This may work as the moisture in your camera would dry out and chances are there that it may start working.

Camera dropped in water


If you had immediately fished it out, removed the batteries, and let it dry thoroughly before even attempting to turn it on again, then the camera MAY work again. If you had left the batteries in or tried to turn it on again while wet, your chances are much less.
If your camera doesn't turn on after it's dried out, then you have to either replace or repair it. Given repair costs and the expected life cycle of digital cameras, it's probably more economical to replace it with a newer model. Of course, since you neglected to specify the model of your Canon camera, I can't make that decision for you.

My D3100 got dunked, it works but images seem cloudy


Bob, Your camera may stop working very soon as corrosion begins. You should place all parts that got wet in a pillow case and put in a large container of dry, uncooked rice for a day or two (or longer). The rice will will draw out the moisture from all the affected parts.

Next, you'll need to do a "wet cleaning" of the sensor. This is not for the faint of heart - but can be done at a camera shop for under $100 if you'd rather have them do it. I'd wait a couple of weeks before doing that - as the camera may fail as a result of the corrosion I mentioned earlier. It doesn't make sense to drop $100 into a broken camera - right?

The lens will need a thorough cleaning - but may be better / cheaper to buy a replacement. This is not an "end user" job - it will need to be sent out - but consulting a local camera shop first would be best.

I had my nikon s4000 in a zip lock bag INSIDE a ziplock bag and went rafting....I fell in the water and some water got into the bag with the camera. First solution is-never take a camera on a rafting trip...


Hello

Yes, i second you on the first solution...

But, now that it is done already, we need to try something else to resolve theproblem.

OK, firstly you will need to understand that water damage is a very bad thing. That is why the brand companies don't give warranty on this particular problem.

OK, firstly, you need to take out the battery and the memory card.

Place the camera in a sealed container filled with 2 cups of rice. Keep in the container for about 48 hours.

If this does not work, it is most probably a circuit error, die to water damage.

Please let me know if this works. Also, do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards
Andrea

Powershot sd400 elph,got wet


If you tried turning the camera on while the electronics were still wet, it may be too late to offer any help.

Assuming you do this again, any piece of electronics that is immersed in water may begin to corrode immediately upon exposure to air, and if you don't want to take the chance of corrosion, you should take your camera to a professional repair depot.

Without disassembling the camera and drying out the pieces manually, there's nothing you can do except open every available crevice (lense, battery area, CF memory slot), remove the battery and memory card (which can then be dried CAREFULLY by hand), and hope that all pieces of the camera will eventually dry out (I'd leave it in a dry, warm environment for at least 3-4 days - longer if you can wait).
