    If you spilled water on it, you should have shut it down ASAP, by using it you probably shorted out the logic board which is what you're seeing.

    There's not much you can do, dry it out, and then hope for the best.

    Most likely you will need a new logic board. just take it to Apple and let them see what is wrong and how much to fix,

    Excellent advise so far.
    I might add getting insurance next time.

    There's so many threads about this phenomenon recently, that I am really not understanding how incredibly lax people are getting with the handling of their equipment. WATER and ELECTRONICS don't mix:eek:

    And Mister Meister, I don't think insurance covers doing stupid things. The real answer here is use your head and practice safe handling procedures.
