Canon Powershot SD1000 still operates, the SD card retained all the photos, BUT it doesn't take any pictures. Is there anything that can be done? Please respond to normang222@gmail.com.

Sometimes wet electronic devices will recover on their own if left to dry for a few weeks.

This is a forum, you should come back to the thread to read replies and respond to them.

No experience here, but I have read that you should put the camera in a bowl of dry rice, the rice will then absorb any remaining moisture over a period of days.

My dslr got soaked during an unexpected rain storm. Began to act really weird.
Removed the battery and placed the camera in front of the heater over night.

Next day, good as new!

As an Electronics Tech working in the police radio field, and the Coast Guard.

Remove batteries, all of them. The main battery you know about, but if there is a smaller battery maintaining memory get it out too. The current will cause heat and corrosion.

The rice idea is good, but not really great at penetrating into the core of camera. I use a hair dryer on low to medium heat to provide evaporation and air movement to cycle the moist air out. Use low when around the sensor and interior.

Leave in an open area with air movement and heat.

Most important is to remove batteries, the corrosion builds up quickly.

Work with patience, it will take a while to get all the water out.

Do the same for your lens, low heat to prevent fogging and permanent blurs on the interior glass.

Good luck.

I have had an iPhone and a point and shoot go through a washing machine over the years. In each case removed batteries where possible and put in a ziplock bag with instant rice changing it out every 6-12 hours. After a few days good as new for both. Unfortunately I think this is the exception.

There has to be a story/explanation for that ..... the mind boggles, wonder what you were focussed on?
