Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera
Well, my youngest granddaughter (2) grabbed my camera and jumped into the tub with it while grandpa was "supposed" to be watching her. Now, the camera will not do anything- not even power up. Is this completely lost and I should just go out and buy another? Or can I try to repair it myself? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. My camera was in a bag with a water bottle that leaked. It sat in some water. We dried the camera out. Recharged the battery. Nothing. The camera will not power on. Any ideas?
Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .
it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).
beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.
This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.
