\015\012As the camera got wet so it is advised not to operate it further (switch it off) until you get it dried at a service station, as the water that got inside the camera would have shorted the internal circuit.And keeping it close will save it from further damage.\015\012
\015\012If your camera shows previously saved pictures in memory card in playback mode but does not show live view in camera mode than ccd imager chip in camera got defective and will be replaced.\015\012
\015\012Good luck and have a nice day.

Yesterday I took some pictures and when I reviewed on camera they all show up. However when I go to download on computer, one photo wont show up. It just shows as an icon. It also has sound on it which I dont know how to remove. I have tried to copy the photo, but it copies with sound and I still cant open the image. Is there anything I can do to get image? I dont understand why it shows up on the camera, but I cant transfer it off the card. Help!

Button-be-dead Ok, so this might sound kind of stupid but my camera was in my purse and I didn't drop it or anything, but when I went to take it out to take pictures, the button you push to take the picture was already half down so it won't stop auto-focusing. I can't zoom in or out, look through my pictures, turn the flash off, delete pictures, or change picture styles. I know it's because of the button already being down halfway but I really need to know how to fix it and get the button back

You only know after you take the picture.
