Nokia 1520 got wet

My phone got wet on the beach the other day. When i checked it, it was still working but after a hour or so it wouldn't turn on and kept vibrating. Now it wouldn't turn on completely. Is the damage irreversible?

Is this a good question?

Sea water is one of the worst liquids to get inside a phone, because of all the salt etc. It corrodes extremely quickly, and causes major damage.

I don't know if there is much hope now, but you could try a DIY clean, by dissembling the phone and going over everything with a toothbrush and 99.9% isopropyl alcohol, or go for the more professional approach using an ultrasonic cleaner, maybe a repair shop offers liquid cleaning etc. :-)
