    The top half of my phone fell in a small cup of water. The microphone was messed up for a day or so, but the camera will not work. Every time I go to take a picture it states camera failed. Can this be repaired???

    Hardware failures require replacement. Waters never a good sign.

    It'll probably have to be repaired by Samsung.

    If you had the phone on without drying it properly then be prepare to spend some coin bud, you'll have frazzled some of the internal components.
