Having problems with your Canon EOS 7D Digital Camera ?

Dipped my Canon 7D in the water, only a little bit wet. Removed card and big battery and lens and dried it. When I put it all back on there was no life at all. Any ideas Steve



Answers :

Not sure what "dipped" means. Was it fully immersed? If so, water got into the electrical circuits. If you turned it on while still wet, you probably "fried" them. You should have buried the camera in a bowl of uncooked rice for a week first.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 fallen into fresh water river whilst switched on. Recovered after ten minutes and well dried out (4 days above warm radiator) before putting new battery in.

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I wanted to review the pics and when I pushed the on/off button, the lens came out but no image appeared. I could not shut off the camera, so had to pop the battery out. I am not sure now if the lens went back in. I pushed the on button again and the lens moved out; the display lit up with the message

My camera has been on a easyshare dock a very long time. One time when the dock was unplugged, I plugged it back in, and put the camera on it. It had a blinking red light, which is had never shown before. I upplugged the dock and replugged and put the camera back on. It seemed fine, but Christmas day when I wanted to take pictures with my camera, the zoom lens would not work, and then I couldn't view the pictures anymore. My husband went and bought a new battery, we put it in, and put it on t

Help!! My Sony DSC-W100 isn't working. I've been sifting through the message boards and none of the solutions were working for me. Some of my friends were fiddling with my camera and the camera got left with the lens out and no battery left. So I charged the battery and put the battery back in but now the lens is expanding and retracting four times while the camera reads "access" and then "turn the camera off and then on." I've been doing this repeatedly with no avail! Is there anyway to fix it
