Remove batteries and do not try to switch it on. Squirt some WD40 in the battery chamber then fill it with tissue to soak up moisture and leave in a warm dry place for a couple of days. The longer the better. Make sure the batteries are in good condition If if does not come on then. Then presume it is dead.

I was using my camera outside, in abnormal conditions (rain), then suddenly the screen went blank with the camera still switched on.


If you put the camera in rice, or some other desiccant, and leave it for at least several hours, with the battery removed, that will help dry it out. It would be best to disassemble it and clean the circuit boards with denatured alcohol.

I left my nikon D3100 outside with the tripod and i forgot to get it,then suddenly it got wet from the rain,what will i do?


Remove the battery imediately, the memory card and the lens. Place the camera body, lens and memory card in a warm dry and place for several days to dry out completely.
When the camers is dry, insert the battery, lens and memory card, turn on the camers and set the date and time.
If the camers does not work charge the battery and try again.
If it still does not work then you need to send it to the Nikon service centre for repair.

Everything is working except the LED screen which is blank. Possible water damage from rain. Any solutions?


First thing to do whenever you suspect water damage is to take the batteries out, open as many doors and caps as possible, and let the device dry out for 2-3 times as long as you suspect it should take. Sometimes in humid environments you can put the device in a container and dump in some clean dry rice. Cover it and let the dry rice pull some of the moisture out. Don't let rice get in the camera :) As a last resort, you can disassemble the camera as far as you feel comfortable, then dump some denatured alcohol in and around the screen to help flush out the water and possibly clean any residue left on contacts by the drying water. After this, again let the camera dry out completely before even reassembling. If it still doesn't work, it may be time to get a new camera. Good luck!

Shutter button won't work!


The water or the water vapour is still in it. So did you try to open the cover and leave it again in a worm and dry room. especially leave it under the sun behind the window. I think it will work now.

I left my Sony DSLR our in then .. it didnt rain for a long time. When I finally remembered and went to pick it up it was completely dry .. we didnt turn it on and we took the battery out immediately .....


Hi!

You may keep it turned off until all the external parts and the battery compartments get dry. Furthermore, since the Camera has got wet in rain so there is possibility that rain water may have imbibed inside the Camera thus causing mechanical failure.

So, if the Camera doesn't turn ON even after drying it completely and charging the Battery fully. In that case, service will be required.

Leapster left in rain


It might still be alright. Remove the battery, and put the leapster unit into a ziploc baggie along with some silica gel packs (those little packets that come with shoes and such that say "Do Not Eat") Leave it for a few days until the unit is fully dry inside. Then put the battery back in and give it a shot. We did this with a cordless phone that fell in the sink and it was fine!
