Question about Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
Ok. I was traveling and put some of the water I got on the plane in the same bag pocket where I had put my A610 (in retrospect...duh!).
The water from the sealed plastic cup did leak and get into my camera. I tried turning the camero on after wiping off most (but not all) of the water. I have let the camera dry off for more than 1 week now, but still each time I tun it on, the Print/Share button lights up in blue color...nothing else happens!
When the leak occured, I had Ni-Metal Hydride batteries in the camera and the water did get into the battery and memory slots. I did replace the batteries with regular alkaline bateries and for a second the camera did turn on (ie, Lens exposed, LCD turned on) but died quickly. So now my camera has an exposed lense. The Print/Share light issue remains.
WHAT I HAVE TRIED:
I have downloaded and searched the A610/620 manual to see if it tells u what the Print/share blue light might mean...but nothing specific there. I have also tried pressing and holding the power button, menu button and other buttons and also tried some combinations to no avail.
CAN YOU HELP?
I suspect my beloved A 610 is a goner, but I'm hoping it's a study lil bugga!
Depends on how old your water ingress problem is.
If it is a recent problem, half fill a bowl with rice place your camera in it and cover the entire phone is rice, bury it.
Rice is hygroscopic and will absorb moisture from the camera.
No guarantee that will work though. Corrosion doesn't need much convincing to get going.
