Camera got wet doesn't power up

I have a Canon SX50 HS or should I say I did have.

Stupidly, I left it out in the rain one night, got distracted by the kids.

Worked ok for a few weeks and then decided to give up the ghost.

Now it will not turn on.

I tried replacing the external battery, no luck.

I read on this site that cameras have an internal battery.

Does the Canon SX50 HS have an internal battery?

This happened a few months ago now and still doesn’t power up. So I suspect it will be dry inside now but some type of damage has been done.

William Jackson  dry maybe but also corroded. you will have to disassemble Canon PowerShot SX50 HS your camera and clean it properly. Use some 90%+ isopropyl alcohol and a soft brush then clean all the parts with it.

This should help you out aswell
