    Try removing the SD card and rebooting. Or try a new battery.

    See if you can boot into Recovery Mode, and wipe the system cache partition: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 4 | T-Mobile Support

    If it helps, My phone went through a full dual wash cycle in the washing machine and this included two cycles of spin. It showed no life at all. I removed the battery and sim card. The phone went into a paper bag (not plastic) with dry oatmeal. Quick oats work best I hear.

    After about a week, it actually came back to life although all memory and settings were lost.

    The screen looked severely affected but I then saw that I had not removed the protective film from the original packaging. Removed it and everything was good.

    If you can go a week, I believe it is recoverable.
