What happens when you forget to take the digital camera out of your cargo pant's pocket after a day at a job site? They get tossed in the laundry with the rest of the dirty clothes naturally! We discovered this last night. Of course Susan's Canon A1000IS was dead last night after pulling them out of a complete wash/spin/rinse cycle. Dead dead, as in wouldn't even turn on.
I brought it to work with me today, and have had it sitting out in the heat and sun for a few hours. It sputtered to life around 10am. It actually turned on, but the LCD screen was all black and funky. It acted like it took a photo, but this is what it looked like:
After a couple more hours in the sun, the LCD screen came back to life, although it is a bit cloudy. But, it takes pictures again:
Maybe by the end of the day, it will be back to normal?
