    Default Spilled Water on Nexus 7. Now it won't turn off?

    I knocked a glass of water on to my nexus so I immediately turned on the power to check if it was still working. After I wiped away all the water and thought the problem was resolved, I tried to turn off the tablet but the power button wasn't doing anything. The touch screen works fine, the volume buttons work fine. I need help soon!

    Usually, the thing to do is not turn it on, disassemble if possible and place the device in rice. However, in this case, the water probably damaged the hardware beneath.

    As golf said it could be damaged now. You never want to power a device up right after it gets wet. Normally you'd want to power it down (if it was on) and put it in rice after wiping the excess water off... This way the rice can try to soak up any leftover moisture from the internals.

    So should I take it into a store now?

    As in a repair ship? Yes.

    Actually your device IS working! Its cheaper to try to dry it out. Put it in rice!

    Put in rice for a few days or gently pry the case off and then left air dry for at least a day.

    If you not comfortable taking the back off, try running a vacuum around the edges and openings of the unit. This may pull out any moisture trapped.
