Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

Wet elph My Canon Elph was dropped in the swimming pool. It turned on one time after its little swim, but hasn't worked since? Any ideas? I'm hoping it is not totally ruined. Has anyone had experience with this kind of problem and a successful repair?

Re: wet elph

That kind of submersion is usually a lethal thing, plus turning it on while still wet could deliver a nice killing blow, just to make sure it's dead... you passed current through conductive water spread inside the electronics. Don't mean to discourage you, there's always a chance, and you could take it for a shop to give you the final verdict, but if you told them what it went through there's a chance that they won't even bother opening it up. Sorry, at least life aint boring? ;[

Help, I dropped my favorite canon sd 630 elph digital camera!

It may or may not be able to be fixed. Fortunately the prices have come down so much on these point and shoot cameras, that you may be able to replace it for less than a repair.

Have a canon digital elph sd750. Pictures are now blurry.

You could have cracked the lens, damage the focus or a number of other things but the lens and focus are most likely. check your lens for scratches if there is none and no cracks take it to your nearest camera store or buy new good luck!
