Hi and Welcome to the Community!

REMOVE YOUR BB BATTERY NOW!!!

Run, don't walk, to this FAQ:

Do everything it says, including waiting the maximum recommended time (perhaps longer...perhaps 5 days). Applying power to your BB between it getting wet and doing this process reduces the chances of success. Further, the only thing predictable about moisture intrusion into a BB (indeed, any electronic device) is that the results will be unpredictable. I've seen some come back up right away and be fine. I've seen others never work at all. I've seen still others run for a bit, and then die later. And every thing in between.

 

Given what you describe, I'd deduce that your BB is now useless...but the above procedure might just bring it back to life...it's impossible to predict. Fortunately, the proper and regular backup procedures that I'm sure you've been practicing have protected the priceless data on your BB.


Good luck!
