Bummer, you'd have to replace the damaged parts if it is totally dry now and still won't come on.

http://www.precisioncamera.com/ fixes any type of camera but depending on the age of it, it may be more economical just to replace it.

Other thing you can try - If the camera was purchased less than a year ago ( or is under manf. warranty) at Best Buy you can try to take it there and get them to replace it. They have a deal with Canon that they can just ship back *most* defective cameras rather than shipping it in for repair. If they want to ship it in, don't send it because they are going to send it back with a charge for it being water damaged.

Now if it looks like it has been taken apart they probably aren't going to replace it.

Watching a football game picture is very unclear


The noise reduction option will cause a blur on fast movement. Also, you probably already know this, but a standard definition broadcast will look very blurry on an HD TV, so make sure the channel you're watching is actually an HD channel.

Oh, wow, I just noticed that this is from October. Oh well, maybe you're still having problems.

When taking photos with the camera set at the shutter priority, all the photos come out black. I have a lens with a f/2.8, but the on the screen on top the camera, the f reading is showing LO. I have...


You mention everything except the shutter speed. When the aperture shows "Lo" it's saying that there isn't enough light at your selected shutters peed to produce a good exposure. That's why you have dark photos. You may need to bump the ISO up higher, or use exposure compensation to make it work well. For a football game, 1/750 is nice, but you can usually make 1/500 work.
