I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hi there, my name is Cameron & I’m a tech expert here with JustAnswer, an independent, paid support website. I know these kinds of things can be really frustrating and I’m sorry you have to deal with this, but I just came across your issue and want to help you try and find a solution! I’m reviewing the information you’ve given me now!

IMPORTANT NOTE: I ask that if you would like to provide a rating after this interaction, that this rating you give reflects my customer service only. If something outside of my service makes you unhappy, please don’t give a poor rating to me, as it reflects my service. Instead, please let me know what you’re unhappy with & I will make sure to provide the suggestion to those above me. Thanks so much for this in advance!

Unfortunately what you're dealing with is a classic example of what happens to cameras and electronics when they experience water damage. Once the water gets inside the device, the damage is immediate and any use of the device once it's been damaged with water will only damage the device more. You will need to take this in for a repair.

If you take it to a repair professional, it's possible they can de-oxidize the inside but there's no guarantee, it just all depends on how much damage there is.

If you message back & I don’t reply, please don’t worry I will respond with valuable info as soon as possible. Thanks!
