Canon 40d got wet

\015 My canon 40 d got wet (childrens juice beaker spilt) initially would turn on but showing error code 01. After about 30mins wouldn't even switch on. Dried camera out in the airing cupboard and now it will switch on. However, when shutter release is pressed error 01 appears again. Functions are limited with aperture howing as 00. I have tried 2 lenses and the same thing happens...(these lenses are ok on my other body too, so I knowits the camera not the lens)....any suggestions please? *sob,sob**\015

Hi, I got a new ProSpec 4gb flash card and used it last night in my canon 40d. I forgot to format before I initially used it. Shot lots of great images that I could see on the camera back, but now I am getting the messages - can not create a folder, tried to shoot another image and is says cf card is full, and now I can't review on camera, it says there are no images. Tried Digital Photo recovery software and got nothing. Anything at all I can do? I'm tempted to format now and then see if I can

I have a Canon 40D and tried to use my Sigma 28-300 1:3.5-6.3 DL Hyperzoom lens on it but the camera kept telling me that it could not communicate with the lens and that I should clean the lens contacts. I cleaned the contacts several times (which were not dirty) but still got the same results. The lens is 5 or so years old, is it possible that the lens is not compatible with the 40D?


It could be that the lens, being so old, needs a firmware update. Go to http://www.sigmaphoto.com/service-support for a service form and instructions. ... Digital Cameras

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.
