If you tried to turn it on without properly drying it for a week, you probably fried the circuits. Even if you didn't, the salt water would eventually corrode everything inside the camera anyway.

Why does the screen stay black when camera is turned on?


Did you try to press the display button several times? Most of the time you can cycle through different views on the display, with different information during record mode. One is display off.

Hi,

The camera's charge-couple device (CCD) within the camera must have suffered a short-circuit due to the sea water, rendering the imaging device damaged. As a result, the battery would drain pretty quick while its switched on.

Please take the camera to the nearest service center to have it repaired.

Thanks!
