What kind of water? If it is sea water it is probably gone as sea water is highly corrosive. Did you immediately remove the battery and leave it out? If not, then the water, which conducts electricity, could have sent over 300 volts from the flash circuit into the rest of the camera and fried a number of circuits. Without seeing the camera it is impossible for me to give any other suggestions
My sympathies. If you immediately fished the camera out, removed the battery, rinsed it in fresh water, and let it dry thoroughly before even thinking about putting the battery back in and seeing whether it turns on again, then you MIGHT be able to salvage the camera. Otherwise it's time for a new camera.
The pictures on your memory card should be okay. Just rinse the card in fresh water and let it dry before trying to read the card.
Salt water damage is very bad for electronic devices, especially if the device was switched on at the time when it was dropped into salt water. The cost of repair if you can get someone to repair it would most like be very expensive. I would recommend you purchase a new camers, it most likely be a later and better model.
if it fell in the pool you wouldn't have turned it on instead you would have pulled out the batteries and place the camera in a conducive environment for it to dry for about 2hrs before turning it on......Anyway you can still try..

Did you dry
the camera completely? If not here is the procedure to take out all moisture
trapped in the camera: Dry the camera, battery, any accessory, etc. with
cloth and wrap each piece, camera and accessories, in
newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place
the wrapped camera in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids
direct contact of rice
with your camera because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of
the camera. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with
the bag open) at least 24 hrs.
As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased or unable to be downloaded to computer. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge. http://www.z-a-recovery.com/ You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and people have had much success in recovering lost images.
Unfortunately salt water causes all the electronic terminals and wboards to oxidize. Just getting plain water in. would work after it dried completely, but salt water , not good. You may be looking for a new one. Sorry
