When a digital camera takes on salt water the outcome is not good, once inside it will corrode the ic pins on the circuit board and work it's way in the casing, eventually the camera will go into cascade failure until it becomes unusable. This can take hours, days, or even weeks before it is finished, I recommend transferring your photo's while you still can.

My brench of camara name Powershot SD1300is digital. when i turn on with my canon camara i see lens error will shut down outomatic restart camara.


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

I let my camara fall in the sea their was no


Sorry but saltwater is the worst thing after fire or total crushing that any electronic device can be exposed to. Salt causes physical and chemical damage which is near impossible to reverse. You might not have seen any water inside the camera, but it only takes a tiny amount to destroy a digital camera.

Your camera may look ok, but it's a write-off. It's impossible to remove all residual salt which will continue to corrode circuitry inside the camera. Any tiny pockets of trapped saltwater are eletcrically conductive and will cause electronic faults, any condensation which occasionally gets into all cameras just dissolves trapped salt to effectively become seawater.

The only hope would have been to immediately remove the battery and memory cards and then to immerse the camera in de-ionised water, but even then the camera would likely have been ruined. Leaving it to dry out for two days has simply ensured that remaining salt deposits are now buried deeply within the components and absorbent materials used in the camera.

Sorry to disappoint you, but your only hope is that the camera was insured against accidental damage. Even then, the insurer may refuse to pay by arguing that your camera was put at unnecessary risk by not being in a waterproof housing.

I hope that my reply has still been of use to you; please don't forget to rate my answer.
