Drowed Canon Powershot A710 digital camera

Hello, I managed to get my Canon Powershot A710 very very wet. Powering it on gives random beeps and lens movement and no buttons work. I have removed the back and am gently playing warm air on it but am reluctant to remove more stuff without information. Any tips or diagrams welcome. TrevorB

In my opinion you are wasting your time because you will get corrosion on some of the components whatever you do ( in my experience it is rare for a camera damaged in this manner to work for more then a month or two so I do not repair them unless effected sections of the camera are replaced ). But if you want to try anyway start with all ribbon cables you can see , disconnect them and dry inside the plugs.

Hi,Have got got a canon(powershot a710 is) whenever i turn on the camera i get a few beep noises and the screen remain black with the message'lens error,restart the camera'....and it then turns off.....I...

The lens is jammed. Usually dust or grit gets in the mechanism and causes it to stick. Could try blowing down the side of the lens but it will probably need taking apart and cleaning. It is not an easy job to do but it might be worth trying as it would probably cost too much taking to a repair shop.

Canon A95 Cannot be switched off

Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

Canon A710 IS Automatic Lens Cover Assembly

I would not try to fix that lens cover issue. I would call Canon and send in for service or upgrade to another camera through their Canon Loyalty program.
Deep discounts!

You should be able to set the resolution by hitting function set, going to the bottom left corner and choosing another resolution. I'm not sure if this helps, but it is true that if you set resolution lower, you will not get the quality if trying to make large print.
