Per the problem description, it's possible to fix it, but requires to open the camera, and clean properly all residues of moisture and corrosion, which it may require the usage of a miscroscope in case such residues are under intergrated circuits.

If you are familiar with fixing electronics, then you can do it yourself. If not, then I do recommend you that you have a qualified technician to do the repair.

I do need to warn you that if has passed several months of the water incident, the corrosion may affected permanenty the printed board circuit copper traces, and it may be necessary to replace the whole main board (or the lcd screen if the flat ribbon cable has been affected too).

If you don't want to spend money in fixing it, with the risk that it may not be possible to do it, then you can sell it AS-IS for parts, and use the money you will get to buy another camera.

Best regards,

How do I take black and white photos using a canon powershot?


Place the camera in P, Tv, Av, M, Movie, or Stitch-assist mode. Press the Func/Set button, and scroll down to the "My Colors" icon on the left side (second or third icon down, should show "My Colors Off" at the bottom of the LCD). Now use the left/right buttons to select "B/W", and press the Func/Set button again.

If the screen goes black, you can still take pictures. There is no way to fix the black screen, it just blew out.

Camera turns on, but no screen visual


You may have accidentally hit the DISP button on the back of your camera. This button manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. Turn on the camera and press it once to see if that corrects it.

Canon powershot a540 black/web screen display


jvsnype and ygjeff21, have you checked to see if the pistures also come up as blank or distorted (a sure sign of a CCD failure)? If the pictures are OK, then it might be that you accidentally hit the DISP button, or the camera has a loose LCD ribbon cable connector. The reason I would suspect either is that ygjeff mentioned that the LCD would spring to life when he played with the buttons on the back of the camera.

If and only if the camera still takes good pics, and the DISP button has been checked, then would next recommend reseating the LCD ribbon cable into its connector (ALSO ONLY IF THE CAMERA IS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY). The following link may be of some help. Wouldn't recommend going any farther than the first three pictures. You just want to jiggle or reseat the ribbon cable where the LCD connects to the circuit board, nothing else:
