Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
Chances are that it's unsalvageable. Water just leaves too many deposits to remove, and can cause all kinds of electrical and physical problems. You can try to take it apart and clean it as best you can, with alcohol, but it's usually a futile effort. Sorry to relay the bad news.

If it was powered on when wet unfortunetly that usually kills them. Sometimes if they get dunked and you let them dry out for several days they will sometimes work again. Also if it was dunked in anything other than fresh water that makes it worse as far as survival.
Basically all you can do is yank the battery out, open all the hatches etc and put a fan on it and let it dry out for a week or so. If it works then you got lucky if it doesn't come back then its time for a replacement.

Though the problems seems to be difficultt, you may be lucky at times. So remove off the battery and carrefully open the set. use alcoho, to clean all parts and use a good hair dryer to help with the mop off of the moisture. If you can clean the PCB of any traces of water electrolysis. mostoften since the circuit is low power , you could come our lucky. repeat the process, allow for time to dry , use a small pin to clean the water caught into the IC leads, Semiconductor leads. Use a low wattage soldering iron to resolder all the visible points of the PCB. Do this carefully. I hope you get lucky. Good day
