Question about Canon PowerShot SD880 IS Digital Camera
Sorry to hear that shivamfc. You are an unfortunate Canon user with the unlucky results of digital camera + sand = dead.
To make the camera to work again, you need to be sure to remove the sand that got inside the lens mechanism, unfortunately that is a serious repair and I don't think it can be done by the user.
Perhaps you can contact the manufacturer to see if they have a good solution for you or at least they are kind enough to provide you a rebate is you have to buy a new one.
Some people having trouble with lens mechanism (in cheaper cameras) are "fixing" this issue banging the camera (as this is already unusable) and a few of them are lucky enough to get it working again.
The first idea that comes to my mind is to use compressed air and try to remove any sand particles but I'm not sure that will fix it, also, the CCD can be damaged trying this.
The best recommendation that I can give to you is to contact the manufacturer for solutions.
