My Canon A430 Camera got a bit wet when I fell into a Dam this weekend. The camera did not at all touch the water, but a few drops of water did land on the camera. After drying the few drops off, the...


Apparently, Some water worked its way into the camera circuitry. You need to stop trying to get it to work...you're only making things worse. Remove the card and battery. Bury the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a few days to absorb any moisture.

Nikon Coolpix S50 lens Problem


No. Water ruins cameras, water and damage due to being dropped is even worse. Now that you've let it sit and dry corrosion will have set into various electronic and mechanical components and there will be residual conductive salts left where the water evaporated.

Your camera is unrepairable. Buy another one and take better care of it, or buy a rugged tough camera designed to be "you proof" or given that it fell down a toilet, maybe that should be "poo proof"...

Lence will not come out.


If the lens was misaligned during the fall, that would explain an error like that. It sounds like it is not well in any case. Time for a new camera maybe... :(

I think ribbon connector of LCD is misaligned in your camera.
If you are comfortable with it, please apart camera and readjust ribbon connector at main board.

My camera got wet as in fell in a bucket of water, is it beyond repair? It wont turn on anymore??


Actually the best suggestion that I can give you is to leave the unit alone and dont force things let it dry for some time. THis happened to my cellphone and I left it alone for about 2 weeks then after everything was fine. Teh worst that you could do is force it to turn on as it will cause a short circuit.
