Hi Alicimo, When anything wet is introduced to electronic circuitry, there is a risk of a short that can destroy it. Most of the time, however, it can be dried out and serve a useful life. What I would do it to take the battery out, open up the battery door, put it somewhere in your house where the sun can hit it, then wait for 4 or 5 hours. If it still doesn't operate, you could take it in to a camera shop for a cleaning, if this works, it is a small price to pay, and would certainly be better than buying a new one. Let me know if you can get it going again. Best regards, nightdiver

Func Button Not Functioning

Try rotating the selection knob from Auto to the P or Manual position. Then press the Function Button. Next would be to install fresh or recharged batteries. Next would be to try a different Compact Flash card. Check the Owners Manual and see if there is a reset function mentioned. I checked a Canon forum and found nothing about a problem with the Function Switch. Your camera is likely still under warranty, it may be time to check with Canon.
