You're either having a spreading corrosion problem from the water, or it's not all dry in there and it's spreading, and the conductivity of the water is screwing up the circuits.\015\012\015\012Open the camera as much as you're willing to risk it, and you're going to have to take a chance either way - either you take it apart, expose the boards, and every separate part with some distilled(non conductive) water (if you just dip the whole thing you'll have water caught in places) then put in an airing cupboard to dry for a week, thus taking the chance of causing more damage by not being able to reassemble it properly, or by causing more water damage, or you have another option of just opening all compartments -cards, battery - taking everything out and leaving it to dry, hoping that it will be enough. The chance you're taking here is that it's really a corrosion problem and you'll be helping it set it.\015\012\015\012If you don't like both option take it to a repair shop.\015\012\015\012Good luck

Black Screen I have taken really good care of my camera and it has never been dropped. I went on a Cruise a few months ago and one day into the cruise the screen wouldn't show anything. It was just a black screen. When I took pictures they turned out black too. I am still able to navigate the menus and see pictures on my SD card. Even after returning to Colorado, a dry climate, the screen is always black and taking black pictures. Is there something I can do to fix this problem or should I just

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair. Thanks.
The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive ... Canon Digital Cameras

Black screen We are having the problem many others are having on this website. We were in the middle of our trip to Monterey this weekend when the screen went completely black and no more pictures can be taken.

We dumped all the pictures on the camera onto our computer thinking it might be "full", but still no

E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera
