My Nicon Coolpix 2000 - has fallen into water.

Never done that but I have heard some tips, sorry if some are obvious.

Remove batteries asap

Remove memory card

Don't press any buttons

Open camera to the extent you feel comfortable, although better done by a pro time is of the essence and outlook on wet digital cameras is not good to begin with.

shake out excess moisture

place in a warm dry place for an extended period

I've heard vacuum pumps expedite the process but there not easy to find.

I did send a compact flash card through the wash once, shook out the water and let it dry for a couple days. I got all the pics and continue to use the card 2 years later.

For future reference: if your camera falls into sea water, rinse out with fresh or distilled water.

Default I have tryed everything you sayed ...

I have tryed everything you sayed but after a week I tryed to wake my canera and I did not managed. Nothing happened. I suppose because the high voltage source for the flash, something was harmed. I spoke with someone from Nikon and they sayed it is probable that best cure would be to change the mainboard. The only problem is that in this case it would cost me more than a new camera
I hope I can find a service manual or a schematic diagram for the camera and maybe then I could try to repair it...

Thank you for your tipp(s)
