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.

How to clean a whirlpool bath tub


There are three main things to tackle when cleaning a hot tub or whirlpool bath. Those things are:

1. Bacteria
2. Grease
3. Grime and dirt

To address all three of these issues you'll likely need separate products. There are liquid versions of the degreaser and cleaner, and there are tablet versions for sanitizing.

Simply fill up the whirlpool bath with warm water, put the cleaning liquid in the cleaning outlet (or if you don't have this, just pour it into the bath). Put the tablet in the bath and then just run it.

This should do the job.

How do you fix a cloudy camera screen


Most cameras are not water proof. You have to dry up the water before it may work? If bath water is dirty, you have to wash the camera parts before drying it. LCD screen if wet has to be replaced.

The camera's clock battery has worn out. Unfortunately, on most Canon SD series, this battery is not user serviceable. Recommend contacting Canon to see if they'll replace it, hopefully at a reasonable cost. 1-800-OK-CANON

I have an american standard tub and it constantly clogs. I used drane-o and it worked for a little bit but I think its the drain in the tub. How Can I tell if thats the problem?


Take screws out of plate on tub over flow and pull up trip lever. sometimes they move and need adjusting . It shoul dhave 2 bolts holding the plate on tub at overflow and work with it to remove trip lever assembly once out run some water down drain to let you know if that is th eproblem then you can adjust on trip lever assembly by moving the little barrel like plug near the handle a little will increase water flow out of tub once you put it back in you can adjust it out it back in with out bolting back turn water on and move lever to see if it drains any better.

They can be tricky but you can do it.

Just put in new san disk 4gb memory card and receiving error message - memory card error. I unlocked memory on card itself (that little gray sliver that goes up and down) What gives


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. Unfortunately your camera was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with your camera.

You'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

Canon Powershot A2000IS pictures corrupted be color wash.


This could be a failing SD card causing corruption of the stored files (the SD card isn't an ebay special is it? there have been some very bad quality cards coming from China recently). Recommend first trying another brand of SD card.

After you've tried another card and it's still doing this, then the symptoms could also be impending CCD image sensor failure. Unfortunately you cannot fix this yourself. But as the A2000 is a relatively new camera, it's likely that you've owned it less than one year and it's still under warranty.

If in US or Canada, call 1-800-OK-CANON to arrange for warranty repair.
