Also, you shouldn't open the camera to clean the sand if you don't feel confident in doing so. i'd rather doing it my way. I have a Canon SD1000, that recently had a little bit of a different problem than most posts here. Then I turned it on, then off, and it closed when I turned it off.
I put the screw back and the camera works like a charm. Number 4 half worked for me, it would allow it to come on and take photos, but it would still make horrible clanky noises and it can't focus...
