I'm embarrast to say, about a month ago my family and I went to Sea World and we were at the manna ray exhibit where you can pet them. I was so excited that when I was petting them my camera case went into the water and I took it out immediately. Took the battery out ect... but, when we returned to our hotel it wouldn't work. I just thought my camera was history. Is there anything I can do?? I love this camera. :(

According to me, the best and affordable place to visit is Tallinn.
I went to Tallinn 6 months ago and made a great time there. I and my wife love that place.
There are many good places to visit in Tallinn. Tallinn is one of the best places in the world to visit at least once in a life.

Ive only had mine for 2 months and it just stopped playing dvds all together. I had a brand new dvd playing, went to switch it to another new dvd movie and it wouldnt read it or any other dvd Ive tried. I havent tried a blu ray disc yet.
It still amazes me how many people buy these cameras that are seemingly "waterproof" and eventually have the very same problems you are now having. The only true underwater camera is one in an underwater housing.
The 40D is not a water resistant camera body. It is VERY important to keep it from getting wet, even "just a little mist".
The first thing you need to do is remove the battery, and the lens. Then let the camera dry out in a warm and not-humid location for a few days. Do NOT try to power it up until you are 100% certain that it is dry.
The water at Sea World has salt in it. You may have salt in an electrical connection, even after the water has dried. You can try using a swab very lightly moistened with rubbing alcohol to dry the connections you can reach - the battery connection and the connections between the camera body and the lens (clean the connections on the lens as well as the camera body). Then let the camera dry AGAIN for at least 24 hours before you reattach the lens and insert the battery.
If these do not fix the camera then you will need to send it in to Canon for cleaning and refurbishing.
I found you because 10 minutes ago, my camera exhibited the same behavior as all yours. All of a sudden, the red and green lights started blinking on and off and nothing worked. I just tried switching batteries and the camera is working! I am using a couple of RCR-V3 Li-ion rechargeable batteries, which I purchased on Ebay three months ago. Thought I'd pass it on.
