Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera ?
Actually camera was out of cover and the water spilt in bag,when i saw the camera the start button was green colour, iremoved the battery immediatly and then made it to dry. but after that it is not getting on at all. what tto do?
Drying on theouttside may not work much but most often the damage is done when there is water that conducts through the delicate circuit within. So the best option is to get the camera opened and checked. If you are lucky a fusible link can be the only fault but do nott put back the battery unless it is opened and checked. You may need luck anyway

I dropped my camera on the beach right as a shallow wave was coming in. In my fumbling to recover the camera I turned it on. The lens extended and remained that way. I took the plastic camera cover off, rinsed all parts (with purified water) that I could. I air and low heat blew dry the camera over several day, and re-assembled it. When I insert batteries I get a power light, but get no lcd screen, no sound of pictures taken on full compression of picture button, no further extension or ret

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or ... Canon IXUS 860 IS Digital Camera

I own Canon S3 IS digital PowerShot camera. I have taken many pictures, but wanted to make some adjustments to some of the manual settings, as I am getting more comfortable with the camera, and would like to try pictures without using the AUTO mode. I made some adjustments to the picture size (compresion) and pixels.I do not remember making any more changing, but I read the User Guide a lot, and learned where adjustments can be made in the maual mode.

Water damage Hi, One of my kids knocked a drink over my camera and I have dried it out. The lens was not working, but seems to be now. But the picture is not good at all, and I can not see the picture I am about to take. It take photos OK just can not see what I'm taking. I keep getting told its probably cheaper to buy a new camera than to get my one fixed. Help please. Thanks Lisa

Lens problems I am deployed and I sent my camera to my wife and she has managed to brake it, I was hoping to get some help on this problem: When off, the camera lens is in the position as if it were being used. When turning the Canon Camera Powershot A530 on, the Canon logo screen comes on as it should. Following the blue logo screen is 2-3 rapid beeps made by the camera and a black screen is shown with the words, "Lens error, restart camera". Immediately after showing this screen for five

Yesterday I downloaded successfully, as usual, my pictures from the camera into the computer. I made 7 more pictures last night. Today, I tried to download them, but the computer had a "non recognizable files" message. I restarted the computer (a Mac OSX), but now it wouldn't even detect the camera! I tried to see if my 10 years old pressed a button on the camera by mistake, and, after I press the "format" button in the Menu I lost even the images in the camera! 1. How can I get the computer to

Dropped my camera in a pool of water in a glacier 12 months ago. I immediately took out the battery and memory card. I then spent 2 hours with a hair dryer drying the camera. Since then the camera has worked fine. This week end I "lost" the lens. I can review photo's on the screen but I get nothing in camera mode. Is it a lost cause or can it be saved?
There is no relation between the two incidents that you explained. The recent problem might have occurred due to damaging of the lens. MY solution is to replace the objective lens ( lens assembly) and the motor ( if needed ). If it costs much, then g ... Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera

The cover on the battery and SD card opening on the camera broke off and couldn't be found on the ground. A small piece of cover and the hinge are still on the camera. When the camera is turned on a message 'card cover open' comes on screen and though I made a temporary cover with a thin piece of wooden pop stick and another with some stiff card and taped them on the camera still came up with same message. Can I get a new cover/door or what can I do??
I imagine the only way to obtain a proper part is to send it to an approved Olympus service centre, hopefully under warranty (though I expect they would not regard this as covered).The camera must have some way of telling that the door is ... Olympus FE-240 Digital Camera

A few month back i got my bag wet and the camera was in there. The camera worked after that when it was dried out. Now it does not, is there anything i can try at home to get it to work ??? :/ thankyou.

My camera is getting pretty old but I still love it! I have made quite a few videos for YouTube. I shot a video, downloaded it as before, but this time, NO AUDIO can be heard on the downloaded clip. I listened to it in the camera for a bit, prior to downloading, and it seemed fine. So I shot a quick vid to check and the video didn't play on the review at all. Does the video "go out" on the camera like that?

It's as if there is no light getting into the lens. The screen still shows all of the functionality, I can still adjust functionality, and I can still view pict

Shutter malfunction few weeks ago I moved and when I began unpacking and got to my camera, I discovered that something had spilled in the box and was coating the camera. I dried it off as best I could, and turned it on. It worked normally. A few days later, I noticed that whatever had spilled on it, that I hadn't been able to clean off, formed a strange gel like coating around some of the buttons. I again cleaned off what I could get to, and again, turned the camera on, and about a second later,
