    Water damage...

    Water damage is completely unpredictable what it will damage within a device. Even doing the rice treatment its no guarantee.

    As Paul said, the effects of water damage can be unpredictable, and are often difficult (or impossible) to fix yourself. If the water damage occurred before you bought the device, there may be no way to restore it to a working state. Depending on where you bought it you may be able to take the issue up with them, though if you purchased it directly from the previous owner you may out of luck.

    I am also in agreement with these guys. Until you decide on what to do it maybe worthwhile to turn off the device for a few days with the battery removed. After a few days reinsert the battery and let it charge and try and start it. See if that help after its had time to fully dry - it's a long shot but worth a try.
