Android Central Question

My Motivate 2 got water splashed on it and I dried it out. Now I can't power on. I push and hold power button and it goes to a screen like a boot screen but it's on the middle left and has a cursor that's supposed to be moved with the volume up and the cursor moves by itself between the three choices. Recover Fast and normal. Not sure where to go from here.

Welcome to Android Central! That doesn't sound good. Unfortunately, any damage from the water has clearly already occurred, and typically is irreversible. You could take it to a repair shop, but it may not be worth the cost of diagnosis and repair, since multiple components might be affected by the water damage.
