It depends if it can be saved ...

  • Did it get dried out ASAP?
  • Was it rain water or sea water?
  • Was it something other than water?
  • Did it get submerged or just splashed?

As to attempting to fix it:

You'll need to open it up and clean out any wetness and depending on what was spilled clean out the corrosion and if needed replace any damaged components.

Follow the IFIXIT guide to open it. Good Luck!
