Hello

I have dropped my D600 in salt water. It initially was still one but once I took another photo it turned off and wouldn't turn back on. A few hours later after getting as much water off as possible I turned it back on and took anther picture then it turned itself back off. I have since taken the case off and rinsed it with normal water to rid of all the salt water to stop corrosion. I then put it in a container with rice to dry it out and soak up the water. I will leave this for a few days in the sun.

I was wondering if I'd be better to replace the Main Circuit Board once it is dry. I rang Nikon and they said they wouldn't fix bother fixing it, but I am determined to fix it if all it needs is a dry and maybe replacement PCB.

If anybody has has this problem, any information would be appreciated. Thank You

Sorry. I would say the camera is trash now. Any thing metal or electrical is ruined or in the process of being ruined by saltwater. If you bought with credit card recently you may have built in damage protection with card.
