Hi

The only thing you can do with this camera is leave it to dry over a couple of days. It will not work because the moisture has shorted the internal circuitry. Do not force it to dry out with anything like a hairdryer as this can often cause more harm to the circuitry.

There's no special magic you can do at this stage to help make it work - it simply needs to dry out and more often than not the camera will work again once this has happened.

I would advise you to remove the batteries and then leave the camera in a dry place in your house where air can easily circulate. Wait and hope for the best!

Thanks for using FixYa.

My interface cable has been lost. Can i buy a new one ?


It looks like the sd450 only uses a mini-b usb connection to connect and the other side is standard usb. You can get this cable almost anywhere. Here is a link to google shopping where there is a ton of online retailers to choose from:

I crushed the screen of my Canon Powershot SD450 camera. Pls. estimate cost of screen repair. Is it on the screen thats cracked cozi can still take photos but cant see them.


Many screen breaks happen to ruin the LCD from visibly displaying a picture. On some cameras, the screen is attached to the back plate of the camera and are very easy to replace with a new one. Some screens are attached to a video pc board and may ruin the board from displaying anything. Your best bet is to have it repaired professionally by one of our top repair providers and get an estimate first. I have repaired many good digital cameras with a LCD replacement, but I also had to purchase a broken used one for parts because new parts became to expensive to repair the one with a broken LCD. BTW: all digital cameras contain many PC boards and if you can still take pictures means the boards that control your lens, motors, CCD, and I/O boards are still intact and functional. Hope this helps - fotobean

Canon Powershot SD450 got wet, would not work for a month, works great now but won't turn off. turns on by itself when you put the battery in.


hi - just managed to get mine working again after adventure in washing machine 6 months ago! I was previously at the same point i.e. not possible to turn camera off. I have just removed all ribbons from front pcb as well as the connection from the control panel ribbon under the lcd. Cleaned all ribbon contacts with alcohol & reassembled - now it works.

Wet Canon Camera


You have eather a damaged bulb or flash circuit. The flash circuit can be replaced easier than tring to solider on another bulb those thinks can sometimes be a pain.The flash circuit is normally held in by two screws after the case is removed and is connected by a ribbon cable. WATCH out for the compasitor that thing can shock the stuffing out of you lol take it from someone who knows lol. anyhow once that is replace the flash should work if it does not then you mainboard is damaged and that will have to be replaced.
