If you've turned it on after it was in water, it is probably toast. You need to let it dry out for at least a week before even attempting to turn it on again. If that doesn't work, then the electronics on the inside have all shorted out and will need to be replaced.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

    Can you please come back and at least rate this as helpful? You asked me a question, and I gave you the answer. I'm sorry the answer doesn't fix your problem but when you get electronics wet there is nothing else you can do.

Droped iphone4 in dishwater now screen wont turn on

There are a couple home remedies to try and counter the effect of liquid in your phone. First would be too place your iPhone in a bowl of rice. The rice absorbs moisture. It may draw enough of the water out to dry out the phone and possible make it work again. The other is rubbing alcohol. Place your phone NEAR, not in, the alcohol. Hope you get it fixed!

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried
