Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera ?

Camera dropped in water, flash broken

\015 I acidentally dropped my friends camera down the toilet on New Years Eve. I took the battery out straight away and put it in the airing cupboard for about 24 hours. It is working pretty much as normal, except the flash isn't working. Any ideas how much it would cost to fix the flash, or if it would simply be cheaper to buy a new camera?\015

The green light above the screen on the top left does flikker when the camera is turned on (which is normal). I am even able to take a photo and the flash works. Through all of the the s

The camera was dropped in water for a few seconds. I managed to take the battery and memory card out after I retrieved it from the water. The camera was then dried and I was able to take a few pictures after the mishap. It's been a few weeks now and the camera does not work. I tried to charge the battery, thinking it was a bad battery, but the battery charger would continuously blink a red flash for hours! Can this camera be saved?
