Fully charged battery loses its power within 24 hours and that's with it being switched off the entire time - solution please? Why would it still lose charge when not even switched on?

Hi I'm sorry to say, the news is probably not good! The impurities in rain water make it an excellent conductor, so you were lucky the drops didn't bridge some pins and kill the camera outright. It is quite common for electronics to get rained on, and for people to try them a few hours later, and all appears ok, the problem is, the water sits on the circuit board and corrodes the pins on components before drying, and often the pins are eaten right off when the repair shop opens the unit. If you can find a shop without a diagnostic fee up front, it may be worth taking it in, I have repaired units that were completely green inside, although commonly they cannot be repaired. If something like this happens again, don't power up the camera, and take it to a shop immediately, explain the situation, and the tech. will take it apart right away, and dry the insides with a hair dryer. If this is done right away, and you haven't turned on the camera, they are often good as new. If you are mechanical, you could do this yourself, but cameras can be very tricky to take apart without damaging something. Good Luck!

Try removing the battery for a couple of seconds then insert it again. Click on the power button, it should turn on and turn it off again to close the lens.

The battery might be damaged. try recharged the battery at least 2 hours maximum of 4 hours. If the problem persist it is your battery needs to be replaced......

It may be something more serious, or your new batteries may be worn out to the point that they won't accept a charge, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion buildups may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinstall them in the camera. Assuming that the batteries are fresh/fully charged, this takes care of about 90% of the startup problems. I hope it works for you.
