Such symptom indicate a malfunction on the DC/DC voltage converter circuitry or the main board, caused for moisture as result of the water drops.

In order to perform a correct diagnostics and repair of it, it is necessary to open such camera and perform it by a qualified camera repair technician.

If it's under warranty, I do recommend you to send it back to make valid the warranty.

If not, then you have the options of pay for its repair, or do it yourself if you are willing to open it and perform some basic diagnostics of the failure. You will need tools to do it, which includes the usage of a soldering iron.

The repair cost may be so huge that is cheaper to buy another camera, since after open it, it may be necessary to replace multiple expensive parts.

Best regards,

Canon rebel xti only takes part of a picture


The problem is in the lens housing, replacement the only option. Not cost effective for repair, cheaper to replace.

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.

I dropped my Canon EOS Rebel Xti in the canal while kayaking.


Water in the camera body could take up to a week to dry. If you tried turning it on while it was wet inside, you may have shorted out some circuits.

Canon Rebel Xti Wont autofocus


I dropped my camera and thought the autofocus broke. It turn out that it swithed from autofocus to manual focus. There's a switch on the lens. Check if that's your problem too.

Canon rebel xti focus issues


I think it might be a lens issue.
make sure you change the macro option. the macro must be activated if you are taking a picture of something which is close to the camera. if it's not activated, the picture will not be focused.
The same will happen if the item is far and the macro is ON.

Tamron lens for Xti?


if it is an auto focus lens that works on one eos camera, it should work on almost all of them. the only known exception is that some high end extenders will not fit the eos1dmarkII as it protrudes into the opening too far.
but a good rule is that if it fits without any obstruction issues, it should work. try cleaning contacts on the lens and camera body. if that doesn't fix it, talk to Tamron. you can use it manually, but will not be as easy and you would get less predictable results.

my suggestion is to always go with lens from camera maker.

sounds like there is an issue with the tamron lens. not the camera.
good luck
