Camera Won't Turn On

Well my camera got a few rainsrops on it and still worked like an hour later. But the next couple days it wouldn't turn on. I tried charging the battery for an hour and it still didnt work. Should I try charging it for a VERY long time like 24 hours or something? But I'm sorry if I sound stupid, but I just need help and it won't turn on.

Hi I'm sorry to say, the news is probably not good! The impurities in rain water make it an excellent conductor, so you were lucky the drops didn't bridge some pins and kill the camera outright. It is quite common for electronics to get rained on, and for people to try them a few hours later, and all appears ok, the problem is, the water sits on the circuit board and corrodes the pins on components before drying, and often the pins are eaten right off when the repair shop opens the unit. If you can find a shop without a diagnostic fee up front, it may be worth taking it in, I have repaired units that were completely green inside, although commonly they cannot be repaired. If something like this happens again, don't power up the camera, and take it to a shop immediately, explain the situation, and the tech. will take it apart right away, and dry the insides with a hair dryer. If this is done right away, and you haven't turned on the camera, they are often good as new. If you are mechanical, you could do this yourself, but cameras can be very tricky to take apart without damaging something. Good Luck!

Wet camera

It's possible to let it sit for few days either in a warm temperature and hope that it will turn back on or send it back to the manufacturer to be repaired.

If the unit was on when the camera got wet, it's very possible that it may have shorted or fried certain components. I would take out the battery, put a fan against it or let it air dry and try to turn it back on in the next couple days.

My camera won't turn on

I had exactly the same problem with mine. Here is what I did to fix it.

put new battery in
1- Clean around the lense
2- While turning the camera off, press the lense in (up and down with lense movement) NOT too hard. Try that a few times until the lense either retract 100% or almost 100%. If almost 100%, press on the lense a little harder so that the lense be in 100% (like it normally closes)

If you turn your camera on and off a couple of times, your camera will work as it does normally.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!

Won't turn on

Ouch! You can't use an AC adapter with any battery-operated equipment you choose to just because the plug fits physically. The A70 requires 5-6 volts, and a Pavilion adapter typically puts out 18 volts. You most probably blew out your Canon's power supply within a few seconds, unless it's fused somehow. Next stop: tech support/repair shop/camera cemetery. Sorry.
