Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera
I took my camera hunting and it drowned for a minute.Now it won't
turn on.Is there anything worth trying,that I can do?
If you tried turning the camera on while the electronics were still wet, it may be too late to offer any help.
Assuming you do this again, any piece of electronics that is immersed in water may begin to corrode immediately upon exposure to air, and if you don't want to take the chance of corrosion, you should take your camera to a professional repair depot.
Without disassembling the camera and drying out the pieces manually, there's nothing you can do except open every available crevice (lense, battery area, CF memory slot), remove the battery and memory card (which can then be dried CAREFULLY by hand), and hope that all pieces of the camera will eventually dry out (I'd leave it in a dry, warm environment for at least 3-4 days - longer if you can wait).
