Hi bros/ sis,

I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right section, please pardon me if I did.

Was having a photoshoot outing with my friends at Bukit Timah Railway Station but in the midst of our shoot, there's a heavy rain pour.

As a result, my D3000 was slightly drenched despite me keeping it in the camera bag immediately.

My d3000 was stuck in the flash mode selection screen after the following startup and it remains stuck even thou I restart the camera.

Photo attached for your reference


Guru please advice how can I rectify the problem.

Thank you.

Which mode are you on?


Press the "i" button on your camera, go to the thunderbolt icon and select OK. Off flash.

I'm on Aperture mode during the shoot, tried rotating all the scene and press all the buttons but still stuck.

Tired your method but doesn't work bro.. Now I can only use the scroll wheel to select "flash only", "flash with red eye" and "rear flash".

Isit because the rainwater get into either of the button and cause it to stuck?

It's highly possible that some water went into your camera circuit and screw up some stuff. Since D3k is not weather sealed. My D5000 is a tough one, been through most weather conditions and still works. Before sending to NSC, try putting infront of a high speed fan for maybe 24 hours, things might change, for me least. Electronics love to toy with us :)

Turn off power, remove the battery. Stick everything into the dry cab, set the humidity to minimum (20-30% RH).

If you do not have a dry cab, place your camera in the bucket where your family store uncooked rice. Or if you have a dry box, put it in the dry box with extra silica gel.

Remove from dry cab/ rice bucket / dry box and test again after 8 hours.

Who knows... maybe it will work... if sent to NSC confirm must pay...
