No it's not safe to restart it now. Powering up the camera with any internal moisture still present may lead to shorts. Open all doors, and let is sit at least a week (maybe longer) to ensure all internal moisture has dried. Some also say to gently warm it on low with a hair dryer. But others say this may damage the camera. Personally don't see any problem, especially if you make sure it doesn't get hot. The warm air circulating through the open doors should help in drying.

Canon powershot A710 battery door won't open


If the SD card is housed in the same compartment, it is not loaded properly. The card holder is fitted with a spring mechanism to eject, therefore it will exert an outward pressure against the door. This will displace the locking/ unlocking mechanism of the door and will be impossible to open in the normal way.
Tips for opening, refer to my previous answers to similar questions.

My canon A710 says it needs batteries no matter


My A710 did exactly the same thing. Spoke to Canon support. According to them you have to use Canon 2500 mah batteries (quite expensive - need a different charger as well). I've just bought new rechargable batteries from Sanyo (Eneloop pre-charged). And it solved my problem. I've also changed the batteries quite a few times and it never worked. But this did solve the problem for me.

When checking out the lid switch on my roper washer as jsrock suggested in another post, i heard a screw drop from the inside of that area which caused the lid switch to become unmounted completely. also,...


Top lid pull up. Look in seam between top and front cover. On each side you will see where top clips to front cover. Put a screwdriver in there and lightly pry up till clip releases. Front cover will now pull up and be removed, so you could get what fell in.

How to overcome Grainy photos on some in door shots with my Canon A710


The reason for this is that the auto scene function chooses which ISO (light sensitivity) is needed to have a fast enough shutter speed to capture a still image (instead of a ghosted image). There is no way to change this. You can switch modes to P and specify the ISO you want to use (100-200 will give you a clear, non-grainy image, 400+ will be grainy). To capture a still image in low light with a low ISO, you need to use a tripod. Hope this helps.
