    I have a Z10 with the latest 10.3OS

    Last night water got on my phone somehow. The red light came on strong and wouldn't go away. I cleaned the phone up, put it in rice overnight then stuck it in the heating vent for a few hours.

    I noticed last night when I took pictures they were all fogged over and the colors were weird. After it spent the night drying and in the heating vent, the fog went away from the camera and everything was back to working as it should.

    Today the phone works perfect. HOWEVER the camera is weird. It does not take crisp pictures with bright colors. I took a Q10 I have and took the exact same picture in the exact same position and the Q10 gave me the normal regular bright colors and crispness, but my Z10 with water damage gave me a decent picture (not as bad as last night), but the colors were down several notches. Almost like there was a filter applied to the pictures.

    What can I do????

    Has anyone heard of this kind of damage due to water??? That everything works fine, but the camera looses its edge???

    How can I fix it?

    You could buy a replacement camera unit and replace it yourself. Or, consider yourself lucky that the phone works at all.

    Maybe try waiting for a few more days. If the water has been affecting the foggy appearance, so as it is on the level of brightness. You just got lucky you got your camera working.
