PROBABLY NOT, BUT WHAT YOU MIGHT DO IS SEE IF A REPAIR SHOP WOULD AT LEAST TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND SEE IF IT IS AT ALL REPAIRABLE AND GIVE YOU A QUOTE. CHANCES ARE THE REPAIR WILL BE SO COSTLY, IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO REPLACE THE CAMERA. SORRY, BUT THIS IS ABOUT THE BEST SOLUTION I CAN OFFER IN THIS CASE. YOU CAN FIND CAMERA REPAIR ON GOOGLE UNDER CANON POWERSHOT REPAIR SERVICE. IF I CAN DO ANYTHING ELSE FOR YOU REPLY TO:

Unfortunately with water damage the camera may work for a few days or even weeks after you first dry it out, but then it will stop working completely. If you have corrosion from water exposure then the camera is gone, it's not worth trying to fix. Even if you replace the main PCB it probably has damage to the lens, LCD screen and flash as well.

Canon A620 LCD shows "memory card locked" for each card I insert


This worked for me!  I have the Canon Powershot SD780 IS and although my card WAS NOT locked, the camera "malfunctioned" and the switch in the camera needed to be gently pushed back IN, not DOWN on my specific camera type.  This is great, I was just going to go out and buy another camera today!  Thanks for the post Stephan!

Some cameras cannot handle over 2GB memory cards. If it works fine with 2GB card - stick to that. If some other A620 you know operates with 4GB card, take yours to repairs.

Your sensor and your inner board is getting malfunctioned so you need to contact canon so that they can check it and repair it .
If it is under warranty it could be solved at no cost .

Thanks for using Fixya .

Camera will not power up correctly


Again the same old compact camera zoom lens problems - sand in lens, stuck AF motor, chewed up plastic gears...you only have to look at them wrong and they will die... (A very cynical camera repairer that has tried to repair these damn things soo often!!) Even cameras with internal lenses like the old Nikon 950/990/4500 still have troubles with stuck motors and broken lens parts. I despair - these things are just made to last the guarantee out (if that long) and die horribly afterwards!!
