Hi,

As you know water and electronics and electricity are not a good mix.

The minerals in the water cause corrosion and the water also provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the tablet's operating design and could damage the components. The corrosion process starts immediately and will not stop until it has been thoroughly cleaned away.

First do not turn on your tablet and then you need to with the tablet turned off, remove the battery as soon as possible from the tablet to minimize further damage.''

Then you need to completely dis-assemble the rest of the tablet and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+ to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is only 70% or less and is not as effective. If you do check the label to verify the amount

Here is a link that in general describes the process.

Electronics Water Damage

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.

You may also have to replace the battery as sometimes it is hard to recover a battery from water damage.

Here is a link to the Ifixit guides on how to repair the tablet, which may be of some help.

If this process seems too daunting, take your tablet to a reputable, professional mobile phone repair service experienced in water damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair. If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.
