Someone else already has a similar problem but mine is not because of water damage. Like it says the camera is more or less frozen unless its connected to the tv. If not connected it turns on the lens comes out, and the "welcome" screen comes on but with no backlight on the lcd. That is it though, the camera then is useless, it wont even turn off, you have to take the batteries out to shut it off.
When connected to the tv though it works fine. Everything works displayed through the tv just fine.
Is there any sort of solution for this? Would there be any hope in taking the camera apart and looking around for something and cleaning it?

Re: "frozen" unless connected to TV
See if you can take pictures with it- ignore the screen for the moment.
The fact that the welcome screen comes on - suggests that the screen itself and its connections are OK.
Displaying images on the TV say those parts are OK.
Taking it apart to 'clean' is not advised there is nothing there that you or I can fix.

That part is soldered into the TV circuitry. Chances are that a TV repair professional will need to open it up unless you know someone that knows how to desolate and solder in a new plug. If the circuit board is damaged, then you will have to source a new part.
Hmm.. Make sure that your TV is set on Video (1,2 or 3) depends on which port you connected your camera. Can you view the pictures properly on your TV? If you can see the pictures/videos on your camera and then connect it to your TV, you should be able to see the pictures and the videos. Unless the AV cable is damaged/not working.
Check that the pins in the camera that connect to the CF card are clean and not bent. You will probably need a good light and a magnifying glass to see into the card slot. If you can see a pin that is bent you could try straigtening it. BEWARE- turn off camera and use a non conducting "stick" ie cocktail or toothpick. Not sure for a Canon but a colleague paid £40 for a new pin assembly for a Nikon with similar problem.
Hope this helps.
Well,seems like the power supply boards is damaged,maybe some parts already burned.To fix this, you need to find someone or service center to handle this jobs. If you know electronics works, maybe I can guide you further more.But if you're didn't know anything, just follow my ideas.
Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker ( unless ice is already there ) . If the icemaker dumps the cubes , then the water valve is bad . If it doesn't dump , and holds the frozen cubes , replace the icemaker . Also check your coils to make sure they are clean from dust , lint , etc . Check the fill tube going to the icemaker , to make sure it isn't frozen with ice . If it is , then watervalve is still bad (leaking ) .
the jack that is affixed to the board has already been damaged beyond repair, which means that if it were ripped out the odds of micro soldering those connections are not likely, (I've tried similar on cell phones they us a chemical soldering method and precision heating to make the connection, bet bet is to find a camera connection for the camera and transfer pics to the cam to print on the dock. Good Luck
