what to do with a camera with water damage? Answered



Best Answer 6 years ago

Dry it out...battery out - bury it in rice (wrapped in a paper towel or linen)...

let it dry for a week buried like that

THEN try it - if it doesn't function any more, it's toast. Most user electronics cannot be assembled down to the level required to 'fix' water damage :(

Worst case, warranty/factory repair/refurbish.

well it got water damage a long long time ago and i was just cleaning up and found it

then you're pretty much hooped. :(

Is it still functional? Is it only partially functional (no screen, etc)?


I prefer silica gel over rice (just because there is less dust).
