Question about SanDisk Sansa c240 MP3 Player
Mp3 was submersed in water it was let to dry out and when pluged in computer to charge it looks like its charging but when not hooked up it goes out compleatly.
Water brings minerals in with it, so you have some mineral short-circuiting going on; just take it apart and soak it again in DI water, perhaps scrubbing a bit with a toothbrush and working the switches, and seeing if you can't treat or replace the battery separately. Then you get to dry it thoroughly (e.g. under the sun and a layer of cotton) and see if things have improved, and reassemble if it has. Don't forget to remove any micro-SD flash media in disassembling, that interface can sap power too.
The works are all solid state and the display module sealed pretty well, so you should be fine. Not to say you shouldn't grab a Zune 2 as well...

Yeah, water damage = irreversible; everyone on this forum who has ever dried out their mp3 player failed to get a player that worked 100% of the time - call the manufacturer, Sandisk, and see if you are eligible to get a replacement - don't mention the water damage
