\015 Canon ixus 50 digital camera unable to switch on after camera was exposed to water\015

Answers :

\015\012\015\012\015\012Did you dry the camera completely? If not here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the camera: Dry the camera, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, camera and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped camera in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your camera because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the camera. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.
Water is bad for cameras you can get a new camera just like the one you have now for under $15 on ebay!! :)

My touch screen of samsung ST550 camera isn't working. I cant switch on the dual screen because the button on the bottom left isn't working. I was just taking some pictures of water and a very little bit of water splashed into my camera. I wiped the water off and that's when the problem started. How should i fix the problem? I dont think the water created the problem because the amount of water which splashed into my camera was very small. Thank you.

When the camera is on it's base and plugged in you can view a slide show. when it is not plugged in you can not switch it on to view anything or take any pictures but the green light still works when you try to switch on.

The camera was very hot and kept on saying battery is low. so when i got back to London i bought a new battery for it but nothing still works.

My Canon G9 Powershot will not switch on at all. It was working fine then the next time I tried it would not switch on. It was not dropped or was it exposed to water. It about 3-4 years old.

My camera just starting making clicking noises, then it would not shut properly, then back, white screen. I tried using new batteries, different batteries, cleaning the battery area but no luck. It has no juice at all now. At first I thought the computer inside was tripped. Maybe the salt water affected the batteries? What is the address to mail for repair? Do I have to pay ahead to look at?
