bad circuit board

Now underneath the mounting plate, there is rust compromising the circuit board. I think this is screwing up the camera’s logic and there might be rust underneath the board.

Looking around there is also a green rust (copper oxidation?) on the ribbon cable from the LCD, not sure if the LCD is still functional, but even if it was i think there’s no good data going to it.

I don’t know how this camera could have been saved, i wasn’t there but i have to take my sister’s word that it didn’t get directly wet. Oh well, it was a cheap camera–around $120 when i bought it a number of years ago but i hate throwing things away.
