My digital camera C-370 got wet and wont function anymore
We were on a beach party, my brother brought the camera in the seashore to take some shots to us. Acceidentally, he slips off and the camera fell down in the seashore, it got wet and when turn the camera on, the lights stucks up and the viewer too. Is there any chance that it would work properly again? The only thing that works is the "red" and "green" light...

photo's on the beach, camera obstructed?
Could it be you got sand in your camera?
Didyou change your lens while on (or near to) the beach?
Sand in your shutter can obstruct the shutter in that case the camera has to be cleanded i don't know what the costs are for a cleaning of the body.
I brought my cybershot 7.2 to the beach, and stupid me did not have it in a proper camera case, and I am sure that a grain or two of sand got into the zoom lens. I used a sewing needle to no avail to try to probe this out, and in the end all I did was use my fingernail to help pull the zoom lens out, when turning the camera on, this worked perfectly after a few try's and the camera is now functioning as good as new.
The grain(s) of sand were obviously preventing the motor from opening the zoom lens.
I do not want you to break this anymore then its already so I would refer you to a camera shop to have it cleaned out. But in genral you need a can of compresed treated air open up the camera and give it a couple shots of air in the lens assy this would clean it out and unstick the lens.
that function is a browsing pictures mode....its jumps from 10 to 10 ...or what ever you set it ..u can use it when you have a big amount of pictures..I mean thousands ...( its possible when you have picks about 1,5 M and have a 4 G card...and you look for a specific set of pictures...taken in a certain moment ....its kinda like a ffwd ....for the second ...you can easy clean it with one of those cleaners for spectacles or a wet Kleenex ..and for the continuous mode you probably have the option in the seting menu ...aside with the vision mode ..and light seting ...
go under scenes on your camera
&& there should be a list saying in exact oreder
you have selected video
so whe you press the pic button it starts to record right?
well go under scene && click on auto
salt is electrically conductive when in fluid (water) so when it happened i hope you pulled out the battery and protected the delicate lenses.
a digital cam, is very delicate but their are companys that repair water damaged goods like mobile phones etc! just look them up in the yellow pages etc... avoid trying to switch it on until it gets repaired, but the mem card should still be fine depending on how long it was wet for!
