    New Pearl 8100 dropped on puddle of water

    Advertisement



    Happy new year guys! what a good way to start the year. i dropped my new (10 days old) pearl last night in a puddle. i was quick though, picked it up and took out the batter, sim and sd card. blow dried it. last night everything was working fine so i thought i was lucky, however, this morning, when i tried the camera, it takes shots but when it starts saving it, the picture turn to a blurry staticky green hue mixed with some orange. everything else works fine though. what should i do next. help! right now its on top of my tv.. im redrying it.. dunno if its gonna work,,

    Man that is a rought start. Let it dry for a couple days, don't rush the drying with ovens or blow driers. I had the same thing happen to me execpt I dropped mine off a fire truck and in bounced under the truck and set in the puddle for at least 20 minutes. I let it dry for a couple days and it has been fine ever since. I have seen alot of them servive quick dunks and be OK.

    You may want to reload the software, it may be a data corruption if the memory chips shorted, this could cause an aberration. also there may still be water in the camera lens.

    Also If everything seems to be working OK try reinstalling your OS and see if that will help just a thought!!!
