Question about Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Will not turn on.

There is probably no solution to my problem, but it is worth a try to see if anyone knows a way to fix it. My camera got wet and now will not turn on. Is there anything i can do, or is it now just a paperweight?

SD1100 got wet,now LCD sceen is completely black when power is on, it is not working, how much to get fixedor new one is cheaper than get fixed?

Probably not worth the time and money to fix it. One last try, you can take the battery out and put both camera and battery into a bag of dry rice (uncooked of course :) make sure it's completely covered and leave for a few days. Sometime, this will completely absorb the moisture in gadgets that got wet and it might work again. Since you tried turning it on after it got wet, it might not work b/c something may have shorted out.

wet is never good. Rarely is it worth it to even try once it has dried. I did see one on eBay for 130+18 s/h

Canon SD550 wont turn on.

A few things to check...
1. Make sure the card/batt door is seated correctly and if you can see the micro switch ... make sure it's making contact when the door closes.
2. Check your battery contacts for bent/broken tabs etc.
3. Make sure the on/off button is making contact when pushed..
Not sure if these will help but worth a check...
let me know if you have any success.

My microwave turns on when the door is openned.

UNPLUG AND DONT USE you have a bad or wet control board . if you gave cleaned the keypad in the last day or so , it might dry out in a few days ......if not it just went bad . most control boards are between 130.00 and 160.00 without looking up your oven ... so in most cases its not worth the repair

Camera will not turn on

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Sony walkman nw-e55 got wet and now dosnt work

sounds like your SOL and even if it could be repaired it'd cost more than a new one, best thing to do when something like that gets wet is to disassemble it, remove battery and let it dry out ASAP!, i've saved many electronic devices in this way.

Kodak DC 290 E 11 Error Message

What a shame! I remember wanting a 290 pretty badly but couldn't afford it. You probably have already tried it without a card. If the camera doesn't work with no memory card, then it has to be the camera that is broken. Batteries okay? Worth cleaning the contacts and trying some brand new high quality Alkaline batteries just in case that is the problem. I think that camera connects to a computer and has a utility program that runs on the computer (and can be downloaded from The utility program might provide more information or even be able to replace the camera's firmware. Sorry, I don't have a solution - just sympathy. Don't be too upset with Kodak. If they built their cameras to be repaired easily they would be more expensive and no one would buy them. I lost my camera due to one second of inattention when I fell out of a canoe and got it wet.
