Got wet, dried for a week, screen now lights but nothing on it.
Put a wet hat over the 200, when I plugged it in the screen came on but looked wierd then went blank. Nothing would come on but today about ten days later the screen lit up but nothing on it. Can it be sent for repair or reset as the OTR driver mentioned. I tried it but without success, perhaps not long enough.

the flexes probably had been damaged by now, stratosphere is not that tough when it comes to water, unlike galaxy s3, you need a technician now for your phone to work, or better yet, look for the nearest samsung service center and bring your phone there.
You need to try Silica Gel Packets. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry an iPod, MP3 player, cell phones, or any electronics. You need to place your phone in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do! Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.
In most cases once electronic devices get wet they usually will not work after. You can try to remove any batteries/power, then set it in a warm, dry place for a few days, maybe even a week or so. Then try it again... No guarentee it will work but I have used this method with cell phones and other handheld devices.
Ours barely got wet and constantly says "check battery" then acts likes it's completely discharged and turns itself off. Plugging it in while off gives the charging indicator.
I'll report back on what happens when it shows fully charged.
I've dried my wet phones by putting them on the dash of a closed car on a warm/hot day that seems to be the most thorough way to dry them. This one didn't get that treatment due to an over anxious kid so i may have to do that tomorrow.
OK going to sound wierd but it maybe your only hope here put it in a bag of rice uncooked dry rice just plain rice and the rice will **** the mosture out after a while and may fix you right up handy trick for cell phones that take a swim as well
The first thing is to know if the phone dropped in salted or fresh water. If was in salted water, forget it, you let it pass so much time, but if was fresh water, try to open the phone ( get a Torx 6 or 8 screwdriver in home depot) and use pure alcohol with and old toothbrush and clean the mineral deposited on the circuits, gentle brush it and let it dry, then reasemble the phone a it will work perfect
Mine got wet about a week ago - see my original response.. The screen was just flickering and I could see condensation on the screen. I kept hoping it would dry out, but days went by with no change. Yesterday I finally put it on the dash of my car and let it sit in the sun all day. When I came out of work that evening, the Zen seemed completely dead - and HOT! I let it cool down and plugged it into the charger - still nothing. But this morning -YAY! It is completely functional again!
If it got wet, your best bet is to put it in a nice warm sunny place and let it dry for at least a week. If you're feeling confident, you may want to open it up to assist with the drying process. If you're camera got wet in salt water... well, there's nothing much you can do there. Good luck!
