Question about Cameras
You made a big mistake when you tried to power it on.
When your camera got wet with salt water, water got inside the camera circuit and when you turned it on, the salt water conducted the electricity and have shorted the internal circuit causing a damage inside the circuit (water is a good conductor and salt water is even much more better conductor of electricity) due to which it is not turning on.
Now it is recommended to take your camera to a Canon repair center to get it dried and to get it checked to see the damage caused to the internal circuit by the short-circuit.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good luck and have a nice day.
