I too had my small digital camera in my purse and did not have the cap to my diet soda on properly. I tried to blow dry it, do you think the air will help? It then began to blink its tiny little "charge" lights in succession rapidly, even though there was no battery in it. Did I just seriously fry my camera? Death by Diet Coke? Or do you think the blinking is a good sign? I just got it back from a camera repair place and paid $138 to fix it after dropping it on a very hard floor. The warranty did not cover that, and I'm quite sure the warranty won't cover spilling liquids on it.

These only have a small amount of non-removeable memory in them, they require a memory card to be purchased and installed to take more than a few photos. Do get the fastest memory, not the cheapest, it makes a difference, and keep the camera clean, it'll last a lot longer. Like in a dust proof bag, not in your purse.
Powering up a wet camera usually shorts out the circuits. Soda gets sticky as it dries and further complicates matters. Still later, the corrosive activity of the acid in the soda will eat its way through the circuits. I don't hold out much hope for your camera but if you want to take it in for repair and are willing to pay the expected high cost, go for it.

Unfortunately, you'll need to send it in for repair. Apparently contacts or electrical pathways other than what you can access have been compromised.You didn't mention what kind of soda it was, but if it was a type of cola, they are known to be corrosive. They can be particularly troublesome in aircraft. Place a piece of aluminum foil in a glass of your favorite cola for a couple of days and see what happens.
