I kinda got sticky stuff one my wheel

Okay so my camera was in my backpack and i didn realize something had melted in my bag, an dmy camera got exposed to it. I can turn on my cam but the wheel is very stiff and when i push the button to take a pic, it sinks down. i 'm afraid that I wont be able to take anymore shots becasue it will stick permently. What should I do,?? Take it to get repaired?? does anyone know any home remedies?

You can take it to a store to send it out for repair but the labour on this could be pricy. You may want to get a quote at least. I am NOT suggesting you should take it apart yourself, and I'm NOT telling you this is safe according to Kodak, but sometimes you can use a few drops (very little) of isopropyl alcohol (only) to help as it is 99% pure, will not cause rust, and evaporates very quickly. You can get it at any drugstore for a couple of dollars. Basicly work the button and wheel again and again with the alcohol. Make sure that you allow evaporation before turning the camera back on.

I have a kodak digital camera and I had it in my backpack bag with a icepack .

If the icepack caused condense in the camera, the moist can have damaged the electronics.
Try drying it in a bag of rice and before you continue, charge the battery. If it does not work, start saving for a new camera. Sorry.

Is there such a thing as a backpack for yoga mats? I ride my bike to the gym and want to put all my gym stuff and the yoga mat in a rucksack.

Everything yoga has a backpack that fits a yoga mat but if you also want to put your gym stuff you may need a different shape rucksack. The Crescent Moon Yoga site sells bags that have mat carriers which attach to the bag.

make sure all straps (especially at the bottom) are pulled tightly. If it is an old pack then the material may just be stretched and there is nothing to do outside of get a newer bag. My pack also sags at the bottom but i just stuff my sleeping bag crammed into the bottom and it fills it out a bit and makes it less saggy. if the bag is not very old, then maybe there is a warranty on it.

My slr nikon d1500 camera has stopped working i get the card out it was a little bit sticky i think there is something wet it maybe tea or soda was in my bag my purse was sticky too...i tried to turn...

If it has been damaged by something you have done, then the warranty will not cover it, and repair will be expensive.
I am a little confused, anyway - I can find no reference to a Nikon D1500, and the image displayed and title of your posting is 'Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS IXUS'. Do you actually know which camera it is that you have ?

Something sticky spilled on my camera when my daughter spilled her juice cup into my diaper bag which had my sony cybershot in it. Now the lens will not open it is stuck, everything else works fine, i have...

you will need to flush the the area that is preventing the lends from opening ( I am guessing some sticky stuff is still in there )but without harming the camera some pure alcohol might do the trick but you dont need to flood your camera , maybe place it lens down and brush some alcohol around the area hoping it will dilute the stuff and run out of the camera and not run into the internal works. a hair dryer close at hand can evaporate up any residue alcohol that has gone astray .

Rubber Grip Has Developed "Sticky Spots"

The best and cheapest way I have found is to use 91% isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol...put a little on a paper towel, cloth, or cotton swab and rub the stick stuff off. I would also suggest putting on rubber gloves to keep the black stuff off your hands. Have fun.
