Re: 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.

Need to open and check the flash ciruit, possible that since this was wet the inverter circuit was damaged. Use a iron to solder if there is dry marks on components. Check power to the flash board when triggered, if not the control board is faulty. If power is present without any flash then you will need to confirm the driver working or else it is damaged.
It's possible to let it sit for few days either in a warm temperature and hope that it will turn back on or send it back to the manufacturer to be repaired.
If the unit was on when the camera got wet, it's very possible that it may have shorted or fried certain components. I would take out the battery, put a fan against it or let it air dry and try to turn it back on in the next couple days.
u must let it dry if you did not remove the battery when the unit got wet then its a goner water damage sends electronics to there grave fast! if battery is left in the gold and copper traces start to corode ! and in minutes not days!
Sorry to say you that electronic main enemy is wet. You may consider your camera unserviceable. However, try these two actions: 1). put your camera so the sun can warm it and facilitate some evaporation. Keep the battery compartiment open. 2). Remove the lens. Use a hair dryer to blow in a warm air into, CAREFULLY to avoid dust to enter in the camera. Also blow warm air into the battery compartiment. If the camera doesn't works, consider to carry it to a service center. Good luck, and sorry
Check and snug tighten all the screws around the perimeter of the case. Canon digital elphs use some of the case screws as a safety switch to turn off the flash if missing (thus preventing electrical shock from the flash if the case is opened). If this doesn't correct the problem, then you may be experiencing more severe internal corrosion problems that you cannot fix yourself.
I digicam that is Waterproof????
Don't believe that - unless it is in a housing.
I suggest you dump this camera and get another and do not get it wet
Wet and cameras don't mix
This review does not mention a waterproof feature.
