      Need some advice here. I was filming some canyoning last week, when a few drops of water hit my VX2100 right around the zoom rocker switch. A few minutes later it started zooming on its own, and a few minutes after that the camera quit altogether. I was hoping that a few days with some silica pouches in the pelican case would dry it out, but nothing. Tried the blow dryer trick too.

      Have I done something irrepairable? Any tips for what to do next? I am not close to any decent repair places, so I’m looking for some MacGyver type advice if you have any.

      If any electronic device gets wet, the first response is always TURN IT OFF. Then, let it set for a day or two with airflow on it. THEN you can turn it back on to test it out. I agree that you probably shorted out a circuit or three.

      So little water hit the camera, the thought of turning it off never crossed my mind. Stupid, I know. I ended up sending it to http://www.avrepair.com and Cameron replaced the switch block (zoom and power), the dc jack and battery terminal, reel tables, pinch, idler and a spring. He did a great job (including a thorough and needed cleaning) and I’m back in business.
