N900: water damage

N900: water damage

Hi,

A little bit of water was slipping from my bottle and hit my n900. First
the screen was falling away sometimes. Then I saw a little water on the
keybd when I moved the keybd out and in. I powered the phone off and
waited for a few hours. When I didn't see any water anymore, I powered
it on, it looks to behave normal again, until I tried to charge it,
which didn't work. Then I noticed that I couldn't turn it off normally,
so I removed the battery to turn it off. Since then I can't boot my
n900. Only a white nokia screen flashes on, and disappears after 20 sec
or so. When I charge it, the orange light stays on constantly, that
doesn't look normal too. I did use the power kernel.

Anything I can do to safe my device?

Thanks in advance,
Dirk
