Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera ?

Dropped Ixus 50 in water...!

\015 I recently dropped my 2 yr old Ixus 50 in water. \302\240Now it seems to be working as normal, except for two crucial aspects...the display screen shows no image (although it shows computer text such as flash status, image number), and although it takes pictures, the pictures are black - just like the screen.What I want to know is, is this fixable, or is it time for a new camera?\015

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?
