Repairing Sony H7

Dear Sir

Good day

During these summer vacations, my Sony H7 camera was dropped in sea water at beach. I immediately took off the battery and memory card.... then there were vapours at the screen which we eventually dried out using fan... next day, when i inserted my battery, the screen flickered, got on and then was completely off... now it does not turn on.... can you suggest me some way for repairing my sweet camera........ please....

Thanks a ton...

Best Regards

I HATE TO SAY THIS, BUT DROPPING IT IN SALT WATER IS ABOUT LIKE THE BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH ON YOUR COMPUTER. SALT WATER BEING VERY CORROSIVE WILL, IF NOT HAS RUINED ANY WORKING PARTS AND CIRCUITS IN THE CAMERA. DRYING IT DOES NOT REMOVE THE SALT AND THE DAMAGE WILL BE TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT REPAIR WILL BE ALL BUT IMPOSSIBLE. THERE JUST ISN'T ANY FIX FOR SOMETHING LIKE SALT WATER. I'M SURE THAT INSERTING THE BATTERY MOST LIKELY SHORTED OUT CIRTCUITS INSIDE THE CAMERA. THERE JUST ISN'T MUCH HELP HERE EXCEPT A VERY EXPENSIVE REPAIR IF YOU COULD FIND ANYONE WHO WOULD EVEN WORK ON A SALT WATER DAMAGE. WATER AND CAMERAS JUST DON'T MIX.

Electronic devices do not like salt water, it causes corrosion and electrical short between components especially if the device was turned on.
I would consider your camers a write off.

Kodak M340 lens extends then retracts immediately


I had the same problem after a day at the beach. What I did was get a can of compressed air (from the computer section) and blow air around the lens as I repeatedly turned it on. It took about five cycles, but I eventually cleared whatever was preventing the lens from fully opening.

Good luck.

Yes the beach, two of camera worst enemies, water and sand. The camera should be taken apart to check for sand and water damage. Camera that are even exposed to air around salt water will develop problems.

Turning on may have killed it. however try this. Take the batteries and card out and leave the doors open Take a polythene bag and place in it a quantity of uncooked rice or salt tied into a suitable cloth. put the camera in and seal the bag. leave in a warm dry place for several days This may save it -or it may not.
