Hi,

Take the battery out and allow it to dry.  A lot of folks who had this to happen to their phones use the rice trick.  Place you device in some rice (Mahatma or Uncle Ben's, your choice) and let it dry.  This usually takes a day or two.  After that, you can try it again.  Most folks usually have to get another phone.  Good luck.

Be sure you use a new battery before you assume its dead. Usually when the phone gets wet bat. Is shorted out.
