Question about On Stage Stands JBL On Stage Micro Remote Control
Go and take the battery out of it RIGHT NOW and then come back and read the rest of this answer. In my experience, water by itself doesn't harm electronics much, but what usually kills small electrical equipment is corrosion of the parts due to the battery voltage. Think of it as a kind of 'accelerated rusting' process. Unfortunately, some of the components and circuit board tracks on miniature equipment are so small, that they can 'rust' away in a very short time.
Your task, if you're going to recover it, is to dry it out before it corrodes. The reason I told you to go and take the battery out is because of the accelerated corrosion process that takes place in the presence of a voltage. With the battery removed, you have a much better chance of having it dry out before too much corrosion takes place.
Your best bet to dry it out is to vacuum or blow according to what you have available. You want to remove the water if possible, partly to speed the drying process, and partly to eliminate the salt residue caused by simply waiting for it to evaporate. Depending on what you have, try to vacuum through the device - use the battery compartment opening - to **** out whatever water you can. When you've exhausted that, also blow if possible, to blow out any remaining dampness.
Try the battery briefly - any good? If not, leave it for a while, preferably in a place that has some air movement. Try it again after a few hours, but don't leave the battery in, for the reason I mentioned.
If it's not working for you, try opening the device up. I confess I don't know how this opens, so I can't help you (yet) but obviously opening it will speed up the drying process.
