broken keyboard! Help please

I recently bought a Blackberry 8900 off of Craigslist about a month ago. Everything has been working perfectly up until 2 days ago when my keyboard stopped working. I dropped the phone in wet grass and think that may have something to do with it but the keyboard wont do anything. When I take the battery out and put it in again the phone will start up fine and my home screen will come up but I cant push any buttons to access the phone. When I plug in the phone, it will come up as charging but other than that its useless. Since I bought it off craigslist, Im unsure if the manufacturers warranty is still on it(waiting for a reply from the person I bought it from) and I was just wondering if there was anything I could try to fix it.

 

Thanks!
