    Today, a heavy storm started and there was a little hole where my 2016 Samsung J3 was, leaving it drenched. When I took it out of my bag, I quickly took off the case and cover and dried everything immediately. I turned it on and it gave me idiotic things like "SIM card not inserted, please insert" although it was inserted. When I got pass the gibberish though, I realized my home and volume buttons wouldn't respond. Not even the screen would respond either. It wasn't frozen for sure, so I took out the battery and when I rebooted it, it said "Installing software" only until I came across "No Command" and brought me to the Android System Recovery. I don't know what to do, because without command or response from the screen or buttons, I can only use reboot mode, bringing me to safe mode, but nothing still responds. Everything besides No Command seems normal

    Welcome to the forums. The phone doesn't work correctly because the water shorts out electrical contacts inside. It's probably too late but see this:
