Hi yes salt water is very dangerous for any electronic device and it is possible that you will need to install a new LCD but first try changing the battaries to brand new 1's a little slap on the bottom side will maybe do the job good luck

Salt water

Yes, because the water resistance is not effected by the salt content of the water.

Salt water is very slightly corrosive in it's natural state, but it can become very corrosive as it dries and the salts attract and hold on to moisture that can keep it's corrosive properties active long after you take it out of the salt water.

If you expose your camera to salt water rinse it off very well with fresh water once you're finished.

If you can see the seals in places like the battery compartment, you might also occasionally give those seals a coating of silicone grease.

If the worst happens and you notice moisture inside the camera, remove the batteries IMMEDIATELY and try to remove the moisture any way you can, even with cotton swabs if necessary.

Pure water is not conductive but most tap water and certainly salt water is, and if salt water bridges electrically charged parts of your camera when the batteries are in the camera, it will remove metal from one side and deposit it on the other side, (electrolsis), and that will permanently ruin you camera.

LCD screen on Canon camera is white

It is damaged and must be replaced. If the LCD screen is the only issue I'd be surprised. Saltwater is extremely corrosive to electronic parts. If enough water got on the LCD to cause damage chances are very good it got into the camera as well.

Dropped elph camera in ocean while kayaking In and out fast. Ca photos be saved. The battery was NOT inside.

The salt water is the big worry, if the photo's were on the removable memory card you might have a chance, if the photo's were on the internal memory "game over" I will assume the pictures are on the removable card, gets some rubbing alcohol and Q-Tips now carefully clean the contacts and the switch on the card. Salt is extremely corrosive when combined with water so keep in mind that this will be a long shot and time is a factor, "good luck"

It was dropped in ocean more than a week ago . Now not turning on. What can be done to fix it?

Even if you dried it properly (burying it in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even trying to turn it on), salt water is very corrosive and continues to do damage for weeks and months. It also dries to a salty film on the lens elements. Dropping a camera into salt water is usually a death sentence for a camera. Even if you could find someone willing to repair it, the cost would be astronomical since everything except the case would have to be replaced.

LCD screen started getting fuzzy, then went dark.


You have inserted battery in your camera after splashing water onto it. Switching ON the device caused short in the circuit. It needs to be send for service (repair), there is no other way to fix the problem.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated....Good Luck

I have the same problem

Rinsing the camera of was a big mistake.You may not of noticed the water damage that could be in the inside on the ourside. You will more than likely have to replace it.

Dark Screen, Lense focus gone and error code: E61:00 - Help!

In this situation (salt water) best thing is rinsing the equipment immadiatelly with tap water and drying it throughly and quickly (with hair dryer etc.) But its been three days, so the internal circuitry and metallic mechanisms are most probably affected from salt water since its highly corrosive. Now, you can send it to your dealer/camera manufacturer for throughly check and repair. I believe nothing you can do right now. And its probably still damp inside, means still affecting by corrosive salt water if you did not already dry it throughly.

Camera dropped into saltwater briefley

Ok... so is it not powering or is the lens not working or the LCD defective?

Basically when it comes to water exposure salt water is the worst. Your camera most likely has corrosion on at least one of the boards, there's probably corrosion on the ribbon cables and connectors etc.

Your camera is probably ruined sorry to say.

Hoizontal lines in images

The problem is faulty CCD sensor ( this device converts light into image ) so faulty sensor means either poor quality pics or no pics at all. Have sensor replaced and camera will work fine.
