Dropped Canon digital camera in water

Zoom is not working. Camera turns on and off but zoom function does not work properly. I can open the camera and do whatever you guys suggest. It's dry now. Any thoughts?

The only think I can suggest is to never buy a camera that is not waterproof. I have learned my lesson several times, but never again. Here is a link that talks about the best waterproof camera that I have used: http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Waterproof-Digital-Camera

How do I fix the zoom control on my Canon SX40 HS digital camera after dropping it in the water a couple of months ago?


You'll need a repair I'd think that something has shorted out when immersed in the water. You need to consider the cost of repair against a replacement. A secondhand version of your camera will sell for around $100 New about $275.

I know this is not the answer you want, but when you dropped the camera you damaged the lens tube (housing) and your camera will require professional repair.

Optical zoom problem in movie mode


Your camera is not broken. That's by design. Canon cameras do not allow optical zoom use while in movie mode. Canon claims that using the optical zoom in movie mode would cause excessive noise in the movie. However, you can use digital zoom in movie mode. You'll need to go into the menus (press the menu button) and turn digital zoom "on" if it's currently off.

Canon SD550 Digital Zoom Not Working


Digital Zoom is best ignored in any camera it simply blows up a section of an image already taken, You can do that far better with an image editor in the computer. As for the Optical Zoom - it does indeed seem to be repair time- As it is only a year and half old- may be Canin will be sympathetic and offer a cheap swap out.

Digital zoom not working


Digital zoom is in the menu and must be turned on to activate it. When you use the zoom it takes 2 opperations to function. First opperation is to zoom all the way in then the camera should stop. This is the limit of the optical zoom. Then you let off the zoom button, and hit it again and then the digital zoom will start. Digital zoom is just a gimic if you learn how it works its not doing anything different then you can do in photoshop. All digital zoom is doing is like cropping.
