Hi ! I am new to this forum, last week I got my a6000 soaked. While shooting at the beach suddenly a splash came and got it under for a second. I felt so stupid that it took me to realize what to do, removed the battery and card within next 2 minutes, Used a dryer instatntly and kept in silica gel chamber for last few days... Meanwhile tried to switch it on yesterday...
It switched on ,the lens retracted back and screen got functioning properly for few seconds and then the whole screen got white and not responding... I repeated twice for another two hours and this continued to happen...
As I've examined there was no spot/drop on the sensor and the lens...
Now my question is what should be done... And do I have any hope... Even if this gets ok, should I get relieved asap ?!
(Feeling stupid)

Salt water is corrosive and so you may well have caused permanent damage. Even fresh water could have caused a circuit to short out. If you value the camera, maybe think about taking it to a repairer for an assessment and quote.

Salt water ? :-( Just replace it. Sony 

is just about giving away the a6000 

these days. 

 

BTW, silica gel will not aid in drying 

out a device. It can only promote a 

drier friendlier shipping environment

within a very small, sealed space. It

cannot draw out moisture from the

interior a device.

I have given it to Sony servicing centre already, and no reply from there yet in 3 days ...
And I used about 300-500grams of silica gel, I thought that worked as rice jar to dry up the whole thing033b95c8d991865d723ea801c4427813.jpg

Rice is the better solution to drying up wet electronics.
It’s likely that Sony will declare the camera to be beyond reasonable repair.
