My camera works only when hot, why? Answered
Introduction; I live at Thailand, and Thais have holiday named Songkran where other people splash water on each other, so i took my camera out to shot some photos of the festival, and someone accidentally splashed water over me and my camera! So i took the battery out immediately and when arrived home disassembled my cam, it was full of water! So i dried some of the water with toilet paper and used a hairdryer on first lvl heat to dry it more out, after that placed the camera in the container with silica gel for 10 days!
After 10-12 days i assembled camera and it worked, i was very happy.
Problem: Now after like 6 months my camera stopped working, and i found out that when i leave it near heat source (my laptop hot spot on top of the processor, sunny place, or even on very hot day) it starts to work again. First the display acting weird and messy, than it becomes green, and i leave it for 3-4 min like that. so it heats a little bit more.and after that camera works normally! but if i leave it to cool down it stops again!
My Guess: I think i made a big mistake using hairdryer at all, and while in that process some of the connections could widened and made cold contact! I assume problem is somewhere on the main or power board since when i put the battery inside camera power control light doesn't respond at all.
Question: Anyone can help me with some tip where the problem could be, or the possible solution? The Nikon shop does not want to repair water damaged camera and even if so, it is very expensive that i could buy new camera!
Feel free to aks anyadditional questions!
