    In college today, I had my iPad in my bag and a bottle of water leaked all over my bag, ruining some of my books and I noticed my iPad 2 had water on the screen, It had some sort of white cloud under the screen constantly and something what looked like white sun spots. I turned it off, and when I got home my mother turned it on by accident and now its turning on and off by itself. I live in the UK and I've just checked my warranty has ran out on it, what are the best options?

    Turn it OFF first! If it's powered off, electrical system is less likely to short out. Don't turn it back on for several days (3-4) until it's had a chance to dry out. In the interim, place it in a large bowl or plastic bag completely covered by dry rice and hope moisture is drawn out by rice and it dries out!:)
