Casio EX S600 Help me !

Hello, I spilled hot coffee on my camera (oops!) and now some of the buttons won't work. I let it dry completely before turning it on again and was able to take one picture after the "incident" but now only the on button, the play button and the centre button on the back are working. SHould I just open it up and clean it out? My warantee expired the day before this happened :( So sad. thanks!

Oh that is so sad. It is 2 choices. Obviously you have no warranty, so it will cost to repair either way. I never suggest to people to open up cameras....but...liquids cause short circuits in tiny delicate parts. The fact that the camera is still partly functioning is an encouraging sign. If you are game by your own suggestion and looked inside you may see some obviously fried parts that could be replaced. But like i said i do not openly suggest this...but i have had success with cameras and dvds this way. It is entirely up to you. All I can be sure of is you most probably have short circuited tiny parts need ed for function with the liquid, that may be able to be replaced. A repairer would charge a fee just for opeening it, but at least you wouldn't have to cop self guilt if you openend it up and it stopped altogether!!! But you might get lucky. A repairer will definitely find the defective parts, but it also may not be repairable. It's all about the cost...

Spilled coffee on shredder when it was turned off now it wont power on what to do

If your shredder plug has a fuse I would check that first, it may have blown if you turned it on again while it was wet
What I personally would do is take the shredder part and run it under a tap to clean of any coffee residue then shake it dry before putting it into a warm dry place like an airing cupboard for a 3 or 4 days to ensure it is completely dry before trying it again.
If it still doesnt work

Spilled liquid on Keyboard!

1. Purchase plastic keyboard cover. 2. Keep coffee etc. anywhere not near keyboard.

For spill, unplug keyboard. If non sugar liquid, invert keyboard, shake or tap gently. Wipe with lent free absorbent cloth while still inverted. If soda or coffee with sugar, pour 1/4 cup of clear clean (distilled the best) water onto keyboard (yes), Then invert. Let dry a minimum of several hours still inverted. I cheat with a hairdryer on low 6-12 inches. After keyboard is completely dry (and cool). Plug in after turning computer off, restart, test all keys, including shift, option etc. If keys miss or don't work buy new keyboard and cover! Aloha, Cliff

I have a Canon PowerShot S5IS, when I turn it on it saids, lens error restart, It still won't work. I spilled my coffee in my car and didn't relize that it got on the camera, When I saw it was wet...

As the liquid dried, the sugar component caused a sticky mess that jammed the mechanism.
Chances are high that no-one will give a free estimate since someone has to spend time to determine the extent of the damage.
Damage can include part or all of the following:
1. Lens barrel assembly (although this might be able to be cleaned)
2. The motor and drive assembly
3. Liquid seppage onto the sensor and surrounding components.
4. Liquid seepage into the lens assembly.

Coffee on key board


You need to replace the keyboard. Turn the laptop off. Dry the keyboard. fully. Hopefully the coffee is only on the keyboard and there wasn't enough coffee to get inside the computer.

So if after drying the keyboard completely it still doesn't function.
You need to get a replacement keyboard.

I just bought one from ebay few weeks ago see if you can find one for your model.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Spilled wine now cant get camera off movie mode

Turn camera off! Take out battery!
Now, with NO Electrical contact or power in it, try to clean wine residue away from any moving parts with clean water and try drying unit slowly in front of a heater or hair dryer. If available, put a small amount of WD-40 in the same areas, making sure to wipe away any drainage or excess. Allow to dry overnight in warm area, pehaps by heater, but don't let it get too hot. Reinstall battery and turn it on.
It should work find now. Good Luck!

I posted this on another link to this site where they were having the sam eproblem so this may work for you.

OK, I think I worked it out. The shutter button was not working correctly. They wanted at least $182 to ship it off to a Canon repair facility. Give me a break! My husband spilled coffee on his personal laptop and then several weeks later spilled juice on his work laptop...I'm thinking...hello...learn any lessons yet. Anyway, he couldn't get the keyboard to work properly on his personal laptop (apparently it didn't like all the caffeine) so he bought some Precision Electronics Cleaner at Radio Shack and tried to clean it. That didn't work so we had to order another keyboard. But, that gave us the idea to try the cleaner on the shutter button. The button worked fine in the half way down focus position so we figured the spring under the button was still working but the contact when you pressed it all the way down was not activating the shutter. If we jiggled the button a bit it would take the photo so that meant the contact needed cleaning in order to take a picture with out mashing or jiggling. So short story long, I sprayed some in there and then blew some air into it to dry it out a bit quicker. The spray evaporates anyway, but that just sped up the process. It works like a charm now!!! YEAH!
Let us know if this helps. Good Luck!
