Too bad but the water will have ruined the circuit board
Nothing anyone can do about this sort of mishap

    Well there are things to try I guess you have nothing to lose.
    It rahter depends if the camera was switched on at the time or whether you switched it on whilst wet.
    If so- then it is almost certainly dead.
    Bu try this.
    Take card and battery out.
    Find a zip shut poly bag to hold the camera and a cloth[hanky?] bag of salt. put both in bag ,zip it shut, put it in a warm place for place[an airing cupboard or ontop at theback of the fridge- wherever there is gentle not fierce heat.- leace it there for a couple of days to dry out.
    See what happens.

    If zilch- Bin it buy another

How can i switch video mode in canon 400d, 10 mpxl?


Use the "Video system" command in the Setup-2 menu to switch the video output between NTSC and PAL. This is for playing back your still photos on a TV.

If you're asking how to switch the 400D into video recording mode, the 400D doesn't record video. Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

Computer does not recognize my canon eos rebel xti 400D


You can download the driver aand reinstall it from this link: http://www.nodevice.com/driver/EOS_400D/get37008.html Make sure your existing Canon software, if any, is removed before installing the new driver. If this doesn't work you can always purchase a card reader and extract your photos directly from the memory card.

My Canon EOS 400D won't switch on. No power.


Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? Are the batteries also 3 years old?

My canon rebel XTi body fell into a pond. I tried to dry it out for the past 2 weeks, but it won't work. It won't turn on at all. Is there a way to fix this?


Unfortunately there is no way of fixing the issue short of replacing the parts that were damaged by water. The service is available, so all hope is not lost!! However, I must warn you that the replacement of the main board (which is most likely what is causing your camera to not power on) may not fix your camera completely as you do not know how far the liquid damage has gone.

There could be other issues such as lens damage, water spots inside the lens, etc. My suggestion would be to have that main board replaced and go from there. If you're comfortable doing it yourself, I strongly advise you to open the camera and try to determine how far the corrosion (it will look like lime build-up basically) from the water stretches before you make any decisions on whether to have the main board replaced or not.

Remove all batteries out of camera.
Turn camera in the "on" position then check back after three days.

Turn off camera.
Install fresh batteries.
Turn on camera.

Was this camera near any water or dropped?

The camera is working again. I took out the battery, with the the on/off switch, off. I then swtiched the On/Off switch On. I then put the battery in ,and the camera turned on.It then gave me an ERROR 99. I then switch it off and on again, and it is still working.

The lens mechanism is shot. An economic repairs is not likely. Contact Canon Customer support however.
