Re: camera on stand by
There's no solution, it all depends on how long the phone was in water. Taking all the removable pieces off the phone and cool blow dry the phone sometimes works. But in time it will give trouble, because water and power AC/DC just don't go together. You just say a few nice words and give it a decent send off.

I recently had a similar situation, mine got wet while it was turned on and would not turn off. Eventually it started flashing off and on and then went out all together. After that I tried leaving it in rice for a few days but it did not work. I know it's not a solution but I eventually had to just buy another one. The old one still doesn't work.
If the camera got wet the way you described, it can run for days, weeks, and months, but even with your best efforts to dry it out, moisture still got in there and caused it to fail. I have worked on countless pieces over the years that got wet and in almost every situation they would eventually break down or not work properly, because the moisture corroded the ic pins and worked it's way in the casing of the chips. There is nothing you can do to salvage the camera especially with the time frame you are talking about, my advise is replace the camera for a new one.
It is time to take the distributer cap off and dry out the inside. You can do this with a blow dryer or stand there and blow on it until it is completely dry. While you have it off check the contact points that the rotor spins and touches on the inside of the cap. If they are really corroded then its time to replace the cap and the rotor too. Let me know where we stand after you dry it out and if it cured it. Raz
Salt water is VERY bad, worse than fresh. In the words of Clint Eastwood, "How lucky do you feel?" If you are SURE its dry, and it won't start(don't try unless it is dry), if its is not an expensive camera, its time for a new one. I hope you tood the battery out as soon as you realized it was wet. The batteries do not tolerate a short circuit very well. It is possible you only have a dead battery, too.
u must let it dry if you did not remove the battery when the unit got wet then its a goner water damage sends electronics to there grave fast! if battery is left in the gold and copper traces start to corode ! and in minutes not days!
Did someone recently clean the front panal with a wet cloth or spray it with cleaner? Was it near a very steamy source? If the touch panal gets moisture between the layers it will no longer work. Some times it will dry out eventually and start to work again. Many times replacing the panal is the only fix. Eric
