My canon powerssot sd450 got wet and will not function


Answers :

Hi
\015\012
\015\012The only thing you can do with this camera is leave it to dry over a couple of days. It will not work because the moisture has shorted the internal circuitry. Do not force it to dry out with anything like a hairdryer as this can often cause more harm to the circuitry.

\015\012There's no special magic you can do at this stage to help make it work - it simply needs to dry out and more often than not the camera will work again once this has happened.
\015\012
\015\012I would advise you to remove the batteries and then leave the camera in a dry place in your house where air can easily circulate. Wait and hope for the best!

My Canon A430 Camera got a bit wet when I fell into a Dam this weekend. The camera did not at all touch the water, but a few drops of water did land on the camera.
