It wont be the software, but on the contacts for the battery pack, scratch them contacts with a sharp knife to remove any calcium build up from the water, that can cause this problem.

Do this and Let me know the results please

Thank you

Then the mainboard has faulted Ian, due to the water damage.

It will be a component on the board that has shorted out, and is not detecting the battery correctly.

They do not sell these seperately sorry (it is not economically feasible) and will require the Cannon to be replaced sorry.

you can attempt a warranty claim if the water damage is not apparent (you would have seen this when taking it apart)

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
