Well you can try not to turn it on and let it dry out in a DRY room

But if you turn it on after it was still wet or it was not fully dried ...Then

you have to bring it to a camera repair shop I would call around but

make sure that you do not tell them it was wet because it they may tell you that

there is more problems then just the LCD screen.... So if the board is wet and

there was power turn on there will be clear signs of the residue left from the rain...



You can also call Canon to see if they no of any Camera Shops in your area that will Repair 

it or Maybe give you a trade in credit towards a used or new camera,





Thank You

Overexposure


The A430 is prone to fatigue failure of a flex cable internal to the camera that causes these symptoms. Please see this other Fixya article.

My canon powershot sd800IS Has lens error, restart camera it takes pics but the lens doesn't zoom right or retract completely


the mechanism is jammed or broken, the camera needs to be disassembled the lens needs to be inspected and disassembled and then assembled back together the right way.

I highly recommend sending it to a professional service, as these are tricky devices and easyly break.

I can recommend www.advancecamera.com/repair get a free estimate from there.

let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks,

I was replacing my screen on the SD800IS.


Sounds like you need to also reseat the skinny ribbon cable. Believe this is the one that provides power to the backlight:

Screen is black while taking picture.


Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Canon A630 screen black


Turns out my husband must have pressed a button by accident. The bottom left button says "disp" for display. Pressing that fixed the screen!

Blank screen


Did you accidentally hit the lower left "Display" button on the back of your camera? It manually turns the screen on or off to save batteries. Turn the camera on and press it once to check.

Black screen on my Canon PowerShot A640


I had this problem too. Try the "DISP" button (bottom left on the display side of the camera. It allows you several viewing options, and is easy to accidentally hit and turn the LCD screen "off."

Elaine, did you accidentally hit the "Disp." button on the back of your camera (upper left button, just below the mode selection wheel). This button turns the LCD screen on or off while taking pictures to save batteries.
