Yes,It can be fixed.

There may be some water logs present in the phone which obstructs the functioning of the phone.

Never switch on the wet mobile,When the power goes to the circuit board it may short circuit the full mobile motherboard.DONT put your mobile in charge when it is wet it may be very dangerous.

You need to remove the water logs present in the mobile. So,please go to nokia care in your place and they will fix it.You cannot fix it yourself.

HI saidijohn,

If you have dropped your mobile in water, then i am afraid even if you get it fixed it would be too expensive.

I suggest for you to buy a new one.

I hope this helps.

I accidently droped the mp3 player in water and its not comming on the charging bar keeps on going from full to empty rapidly and the buttons are not working.

electronics that have been dropped in water should be taken apart immediately, allowed to try with a fan on them for 2 or so days, reassembled and then attempt to charge. If this doesn't work- sorry, but it's toast.

I droped my N70 in water and it is in switch off mode for 7 month now i want to repair . is it possible to repair. plz help

it may be possible that your cellphone's board short circuited when it was submerged into the water. i recommend that you ask a nokia center technician if that is possible for repair but i think that you'll spend a bit much if your cellphone will be fixed. but i doubt it.
