Well my 550D is bricked. I was near a wall and on the other side was the sea. A huge wave came. Wall was 6ft high but a big splash of water jumped over it and fell on me and the camera directly.
After this, the camera stuck to ON even if i tried switching it off. I pulled out the battery as fast as I could, waited for a couple days and dried it. Then i plugged in the battery, camera was dead.
After a week it turned ON, but is giving me "Err #70. Shooting is not possible, please turn the camera off and on or remove the battery"
Has someone come across this problem with Canon 550D? if yes, what do you know about solving it? If you gave this to a service center, what components they changed and how much did it cost? I'm asking this because I'm not in the country where I made the purchase and want to see if I can solve it myself before going to service centers here.
