Last year my Palm was briefly submerged in water (I know). I could see water under the screen and a faint indicator light but that was it. Then it died completely.
Recently I replaced the battery. The screen came back on and the camera worked although it was grainy. The sound didn't work. After a few minutes the battery wore down even though the charger was plugged in. The Palm wouldn't "read" the charger.
I took out and put the battery back in several times to see if the reset screen would still appear; it did. Yesterday I tested the battery again and the screen won't come on like before.
Not a good sign...
Should I get a new motherboard (and battery) or will I still have the problem with the charger? Or should I give up altogether (duh, water!)? I'd appreciate any help.

I do not want to be funny here but I would have let it spin. The water is damaging to the lens and would cost you more money to repair then the camera's net worth.
Many people tried the RICE method where you put the unit under a huge bed of rice so the moister will be absorbed out of the unit, but you need to take the camera apart to do this and 9 times out of 10 its a waste of time and rice.
Just the lens being submerged would have damage from corrosion.
faded screens are always a bad sign usually, it indicates light water damage on the motherboard. other times, it's significant of a ruined lcd screen or both Regretfully, water damage is almost impossible to repair you could try putting the device in a bag of rice for two days and see if that fixes it. I highly doubt it will though
If you clean the sensors and rust you may be able to get it to work again if the wires are not damaged. I had to replace 1 last time I had a car that had been in deep water. Good luck and have a great day.
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
Complete disassembly. Electrical issues such as failed circuit boards and the majority of blown fuses. Internal lens malfunctions, water damage, impact damage, and image sensor failure.
Hi First I would check to see if the water may have been turned almost off under the sink, it will be the Hot water side. if that don't help then check for something plugging the line. let me know what you find, or we can go deeper
