Best thing to do is to let it air dry. If you want to TRY to speed things up. Let it sit in a bowl of dry rice. The rice help to soak up the water. If you can take the back apart from the front and lay them down (insides facing the rice) on the rice, do it, but do it VERY EXTREMELY carefully. Do not push it down onto the rice, you'll damage the circuit boards. Let it sit for 6 - 8 hours. If still unresponsive, it's gone. Sorry!

    Take it apart. Separate the front from the back and set them (open parts down) in a bowl of dry rice. The rice should help to soak up the water. Let it sit for 6 - 8 hours. DO NOT RUSH IT! If it still does not work, it may be a lost cause. Sorry

Has it been dropped recently? The screen may have cracked from impact. Press the Reset button on the back using a ball point pen.
