My kodak easy share c703 worked fine till it was splashed by a wave while walking on the beach. now it will not do anything,and the batteries get really hot when you put new one's in it. i am guessing the salt water grounded something inside . is there any chance for my camera, or do i need to buy a new 1?

It might be the salt water has got into its main chip circuit board or may be its blocking the power switch circuit. And there is a chance of the lens motor being stuck by it. You can also try another battery or recharge your battery and try it again. If you have no other choice that throwing it and buying another one then try washing it with normal water, let it dry then try again.
hope i have interpreted this correctly.. It does not move out to full extent or soes not pull back all the way.. no matter.. try this kludge fix.... OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!
Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.
Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 180 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.
Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
now 180 cameras fixed by this trick works on all brands and these types of cameras
I had the same problem after a day at the beach. What I did was get a
can of compressed air (from the computer section) and blow air around
the lens as I repeatedly turned it on. It took about five cycles, but
I eventually cleared whatever was preventing the lens from fully
