How to Save a Digital Camera from Water Damage

If you have accidentally dropped your digital camera in the water, there is still hope that the digital camera will not suffer too much damage if you act quickly. The guideline below utilizes the rice trick for drying out your digital camera. Rice is a fantastic absorbent.

Step 1: Disconnect the Battery

Out of all of the parts within your digital camera, the battery will be the first to be damaged from water. Discard the wet batteries. You will want to place brand new batteries in your digital camera after completing step 3.

Step 2: Remove Any Memory Cards

After you have removed the batteries from your digital camera, you will want to remove any memory cards as soon as possible. If you wait too long, any pictures saved on the memory cards may be lost.

Step 3: Rice

You will want to get a bowl and fill it with any kind of rice. Fill the bowl with enough rice so that you can completely submerge your digital camera in the rice. It can take anywhere from a few days to a week for your digital camera to completely dry out. Do not attempt to turn your digital camera back on until you feel that the entire camera has dried out.
