Bill White, Stop charging or powering up your device until the liquid damage is addressed correctly, as you could be shorting out components inside the phone. You really should take care of the corrosion that is happening inside the phone from the water damage as that could be your problem perhaps with power button. A tear down link for your device Link #1, disassembly guide will enable you to get inside the phone to remove the damage/corrosion caused by the liquid. Use the 2nd link as a guide/instruction on how to clean/repair the device from liquid damage. After this you will be able to power on the phone and see if further damage has to be addressed. If not wanting to do the repair yourself, you can contact Samsung for a preferred service center or pop into a good local cell phone repair shop and have them diagnose and estimate repair. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
