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:
Shooting is not possible due to an error.
Turn the camera off and on again or re-install 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.
