Question about iRiver Clix Digital Media Player
I accidentally dropped an iRiverClix in water for a few seconds. After quickly fishing it out I dried it off as best as I could and plugged it into the computer with the USB cable. It seemed to be working. But when I disconnected from the computer the display didn't change from the 'USB Connected' message and further, it could not be powered down. The display stayed on with the "USB Connected" message until eventually it ran down and the screen went dark. If I plug it into the computer now the computer doesn't recognize it, i.e., nothing happens. I went through two months with iRiver support where they told me to reset the player and when that didn't help told me it was not covered by warranty and there is nothing they can do.
When electronics get wet, the best action is to dry them off, like you did. And then let the component sit, unplugged for a while (maybe days) until the water evaporates. By plugging it in and operating the unit before the internal components are dry causes the water to short the circuits. So, within reason, electronics can get wet, but can not operate wet.
If you have followed the routines to reset, restore, and/or get the unit back to an initial operating state and it doesn't work, then you'll have to have it repaired or buy a new one. Sorry, but having run the unit barely after it was wet was what put it in "crazy" mode.

Open the device carefully and check the circuit board apply some PETROL on it and leave it in sunlight after that if it dont work it may be useless
