Hello, my name is Rusty. Condensation occurs when we use electronics in cold weather. When condensation develops, it creates a short in the circuitry. Leave the camera on for about 2 hours, and walk away from it.

When this happens, if the camera is shut off and turned back on, it creates a hazardous condition for the camera. If you leave it on in a room-temperature place, that is your best bet. If it doesn't fix the camera, you'll need to contact Canon for the warranty. Click here, this will find if there is a dealer/shop in your area. If not, you can send it to Canon directly. You'll need to call first, they will walk you through the warranty process. Tell them you just turned it on, don't tell them it was exposed to cold temperatures. Call
