    Texas on my mind
    My GF got her Sony DSC-P8 somewhat submerged in water. I unscrewed the 8 screws and removed the two outer cover pieces as well as the memory card and battery, and the camera sat drying for about a week. We put it back together today and powered it on, and al the menu fuctions, the zoom and lens motor, and lcd functioned normally, but when you try to view what the lens sees on the lcd or take a new picture its comes out all black, im guessing maybe the shutter is stuck closed :dunno:

    Any ideas, use it as a paperweight or try to get it repaired?
