You should not have put the set on unless it was opened and cleaned out of all moisture, It is possible that the set has failed in the sensitive circuits because of water in the circuits.
The best you can do is to open the set and use a good magnifying glass clean the points of the IC , usea hair dryer to enhance the moisture to move away.
repeat the process and keep the board to dry before you set it back. However if there is no result I am afraid the hardware hass failed. Get estimate from a Nokia service and decide.

    Ok, So since the phone is working except the two button functions, it is possible that there is some moisture logging in there or has corroded. If possible use a thin needle to clean these points use a good lens to see track loss or line break, clean the pads and try.

I have dropped my E5 into the bath

Immediately remove the phone from the water,turn off the cell phone remove the battery and SIM card. When you have driedthe cell phone by putting in a warm sunny place for several days or in front of a warm fan heater for several hours then reassemblethe phone. Hopefully it will work properly but if does not work then it isfaulty and you need a new cell phone.

it will not work on a nokia 5200 as it is a java phone, you can do factory reset from setting, or do a software update with nokia software updater online, if your phone is giving problems.

I took my memory card out my phone to print off photos but now there all gone and my phone won't read the memory card. need help?

Your memory card may be damaged. Here are steps you can take: 1. Put your card into a card reader and see if you can access it on a computer. If you can, immediately back up all the data onto your computer. 2. If the card is detected but all the data seems erased, use a file recovery software such as iolo Search and Recover 2. 3. If the card is not detected, I'm sorry but you may have lost all the data. Your best bet is to put it into a Nokia 5200, or Nokia 6085, or similar Java based Nokia phones. Restart that phone and hope the phone corrects problems in the card. Then repeat steps 1 & 2.
Hope this helps :)
