I got my a707 wet tooo
I opened the back and took the battery and sim out

put your phone in a bag/box/case of uncooked rice.
leave it off and put the battery too
leave it in the rice for at least a day
mine worked after doing that

I have the same phone with water damage. i got mine to start working by disassembling the phone drying it and letting it sit for a week without the battery.

Well that means you have liquid damage and you have voided your warranty on your device. Your only option is to buy a new phone or take advantage of insurance if you have it!

I left mine out in the rain and got the red screen inside and the download screen outside. I tried leaving the battery and sims card out for over a month so phone could dry out checking it every couple of days. Phone still game red screen inside and download screen outside. Forgot phone for about 3 or 4 months and used another phone. Just today tried phone again and it booted right up. All is working again. Guess it just takes a long time to dry out. I am bad about getting phones wet. Found a Nokia in a lake and it dried up in 2 days. Washed a Motorola Krazor and it took two months for the speaker to dry up. That is probably why I did not give up on the sync. Good luck with your phone!

Samsung sync phone broken do i need a new battery

When you see the red screen it means the phone is in a "boot mode" - you would need to plug it in the computer vis a data cable and flash the phone with a current flash file.
