Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera
Today my little son has put my purse in the bath tub water.Unfortunately in that purse my camera was there.
Now it is not working.I removed the battery and memory card and kept them in sun light.If i swith on/off button of camera ,nothing is happening
OOh, here we go! Yoiu did right by removing the battery ASAP. The memory card is sealed so itll just dry. This is entirely up to you to do, I assume no liability but your camera is not working anyway so it may be worth a try. You need to flush the camera with distilled water. Yes, the entire camera needs to be rinsed completely of the bathwater with distilled water (no minerals) and then air dried. The entire camera will get immersed in the distilled water and then air dried over about a week, put it on a cookie sheet by lightbulb of a lamp for some warmth so the draining water doesnt pool and get back in. Then you put it in the fridge for 3 days to really suck the moisture out. Let it air dry for another day and then put the battery back in and cross your fingers. Sounds totally wacky? I looked this up earlier this week for something else and ran across this guys post about cellphones falling into water, toilets, etc and he says he is 9 for 9 in bringing them back to life. He even uses 95% alcohol to speed up the water displacement. Its worth a try as NO warranty covers water damage unless its Circuit City ESP, and that policy was over 10 years ago.
