Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Canon SD 1000 digital camera was dipped into salt water when I walked from a boat to sea shore. I tried to turn it on but failed. The yellow power light was on when I first tried but it does not light up any more. Any help that you can offer?

Hi Fwang2001,\015\012
\015\012You made a big mistake when you tried to power it on.\015\012
\015\012When your camera got wet with salt water, water got inside the camera circuit and when you turned it on, the salt water conducted the electricity and have shorted the internal circuit causing a damage inside the circuit (water is a good conductor and salt water is even much more better conductor of electricity) due to which it is not turning on.\015\012
\015\012Now it is recommended to take your camera to a Canon repair center to get it dried and to get it checked to see the damage caused to the internal circuit by the short-circuit.\015\012
\015\012Thanks for using Fixya.\015\012
\015\012Good luck and have a nice day.

Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.

Try replacing the battery. If the battery has gone bad, charging it will do no good. If it is a new battery, you may have faulty battery terminals in your camera, the memory card switch may be bad, or some other internal failure may have occurred. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

Focus Problem Dear folks, I just bought a (new) Canon A75, and it doesn't seem to focus. At all. Even on manual focus, not only can I not get it to focus properly, the focus doesn't change at all. When on AF, it doesn't beep like the manual says it should, and the yellow light blinks, as it's supposed to when there's a focus issue. The focus assist light is working. Can anybody think of anything I should try? The manual is of no help. This is my first digital camera, so I'm not ruling out the po

I'm not sure on the problem, but one thing to check on the front of the A75 it also uses an IR beam to set focus. It's a little circular dot under the flash on the right side. It will light up red when in use to project the IR beam. Make sure you ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

Battery charger Hi all - dumb question maybe...I just purchased a second-hand Coolpix 5400 from a camera shop, with accessories but without the original box or power cord for the MH-53 battery charger. I am trying to get the battery charger to work, but to no avail. I already had a couple of figure-of-eight power cords, so I tried to use those with the charger. But the charger appears dead, the charge light is not lighting up with either of them. Do I need a proprietary or a specially-rate

What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.
