    Default I Feel Sick



    I'm doing laundry, taking pictures for Week in the Life and I hear a *SPLOOSH* as I grab some clothes out of the bedroom. Somehow, the camera fell INTO the washer (it apparently turned itself off).

    I've got the battery out, and the pictures came off the card with no issues (both were dry, THANK GOD). I'e got it sitting in rice.

    I feel like I'm going to puke, though. I love this camera! I've only had it since January! I've NEVER killed something this fast.

    So, if you're a prayers person, keep my lovely A3400 in your prayers and thoughts. She's been a good girl, and she doesn't deserve to go out like this!!

    Oh, no, hope it dries out ok! Keep in rice several days before even thinking about turning it back on. Regarding killing something so fast, I once killed a vacuum cleaner the first day we had it (ran over the cord and chewed it up), LOL!

    So sorry to hear about your sweet camera Sarah. Ugh ... how awful. I hope it survives after sitting in the dry rice.

    Cathy ... I did the EXACT same thing. I ran over the cord of my brand new vacuum cleaner the very first time I used it, lol. It was an expensive one too ... a Kirby (back in the day). It didn't kill it. It just killed the cord ... and of course it was great fodder for my hubby to razz me about, lol.

    Goodness, Cathy! I don't feel so bad now about killing it so early. Thus far, I don't think it's completely dead. There's only a small portion of rice that's wet. The battery and mem card section had just a few drops. I'm worried about the lens now.

    I think it's safe to say it's gone :'(
    It's turning on, no issues. Saves pictures. No issues.
    But there's no picture. Meaning the picture is BLACK :'( The lens is gone. It's not the LCD, because that's working with no issues.

    Oh no, Sarah!! It really is broken?! Let it sit a little while longer. Maybe it needs to dry out completely for a few days?!
