    So it means that it got water damaged.
    Not much you can do when electronics get in contact with liquids they get shorted out.
    Next time be more carefull.

    man when it gets wet ur not supposed to open it. ur suppose to keep it off, dry it prfectly before pressing any thing to launch it.
    some people tried putting it in rice to get the water absorbed from it, and heard of others using blow driers :p

    When a phone gets wet opening it up may be the only way to get all of the moisture out of it. I fixed my sister's water-damaged-phone by taking it apart and putting each part in a bowl of rice :)

    I ran into a similar problem with my sons iPod touch. He dropped it in a bucket of water. There is a water detection tab in the bottom of the headphone jack. Use a flashlight and take a look, if it is pink it is still wet. I turned it off and put it in a baggie of rice. Shaking it around every day. Once the tab was all white again I turned it back on with no issues. It took quite a while, as I recall it was almost two weeks.
