    Help! My child dropped my iPhone in water earlier this week. I dried it out in rice for 48 hrs and it was working perfectly (message, voice, photo, etc.) until I tried to take a flash photo last night. It died immediately and will not power on. Its back in rice but I am afraid it may have been damaged or short circuited in a way that it wasn't before. Has anyone had something like this happen? Also want to warn people to avoid the flash for a while on a water-damaged iPhone! I am so upset...I had no idea and obviously could have done without that photo. Thank you.

    Can you do a hard reboot? hold power & home buttons at the same time for around 12 - 15 seconds, then release both and then power it on normally?
