Water got into my camera and it doesn't come on no more
Water and newer electronics do not mix. If you get water in an electronic device, immediately remove the batteries to prevent internal shorting. Now the hard part begins. You need to get all the moisture out of the electronics, and the sooner the better. I have heard of different methods to do this, but none are guaranteed to work all the time.
1. Place device in a jar with dry white rice and put the lid on. Leave it in the jar for a week or two.
2. Completely disassemble the device and dry, can use hair dryer or clean/dry compressed air to blow water out of crevices.
3. Build a vacuum chamber and place camera in it. You would have to have a vacuum pump (used for refrigeration/freon repairs). The lower pressure causes the moisture to boil off at low temperatures. This is also a long process.
