My Olympus Pen E-PM1 was submerged in rain water

This answer was rated:

My Olympus Pen E-PM1 was submerged in rain water for about 3 hours and now appears completely dead although I have charged the battery. Is it beyond repair?

The last hope would be to put the camera in a bag of rice

dresteve2000 :

If that does not revive it, I'm afraid that yes it is beyond repair.
