I have canon eos 1300d and got wet with salt water 3 yrs ago, i didn't do anything then, like I literally just kept it on my drawer. Then recently I happened to turned it on and tried to take some pictures, it can capture photos but can't preview anything because the screen is blank. Just the backlight of the screen. I checked the memory card and the photos were there so that means it can take pictures. Is there any solution for this? TIA

Once it gets wet with salt water it is a lost cause.

Looks like a new camera is on the to-do list. Salt water can ruin a lot of things in a very short time. I fished some in the Gulf around Tampa and Clearwater. I rinsed my tackle when I got back to my parent's house. Garden hose, a good shake and let it dry. FWIW, the reels are over 50 years old and good as new.
