Hi Pearl, I was testing my Nikon 1 aw1 in a pool 903 ft water) prior to going on vacation. I must have had a leak somewhere. first my picture would vome up and screen work but no other functions. Aim I "screwed"

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your AW1?

3-4 yrs. Our fiend gave it to meet once she realized it was not and "underwater camera"

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your camera?

Nikon . It should be warer resistant to 50 ft- good for snorkling

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Nikon?

I open everything, and will let ity dry out thoroughly, charge the battery and they test it. Not sure what else to do.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

I solved my problem and slowly dried the camera body. I’m not sure where your guidance came into play. I no longer require anything. I’m not really sure what value, if any, you provided. Please cancel my request
