I have replaced the batteries but can not get the camera to turn on. I took it to a camera shop, the clerk tried new batteries but again it would not turn on. He suggested that I just replace the entire camera since it would be cheaper to replace then to repair!!

POLISH BATTERY TERMINALS..A LIGHT RUB..SHOULD KICK INTO LIFE..DO THIS EVERY TIME NEW BATTERIES FITTED..HOPE THIS HELPS..P.S. THESE CAMERAS LOVE GOOD QUALITY FULLY CHARGED BATTERIES..NOT CHEAP ONES.???
I'm afraid so. The insides of these types of cameras are very compact, with layers of circuitry and connections. You might have been able to save it (a slim chance at best ) if you had gotten it to a repair shop or removed the covers and dried it quickly.
I have rescued cel phones (my own), film SLR camera and lens from water damage, but they were still wet when I started. Your Fuji would be a pain to take apart since they used the tri-head screws on that model
You just need new batteries. That's what the E550 does when the batteries get too low. Please get the latest rechargables. Many of the ordinary AA batteries won't last 50 pictures. Fuji also is rather poor telling you how to charge the rechargables. When the screen goes blue when you take a picture, you must use the camera's de=charging system before recharging--otherwise the rechargables will not take a full charge--that's what's likely happened to you!
