Default 8900 dropped in water now dead but red light of death 911

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there last week my gf dropped my bb in water that was real quick (3 secs | kitchen sink) and it wasn't that bad but as precaution I pulled put battery and put in jar with uncooked rice after about a week took i out tried it yesterday to get it working for about 6 hours and no use.

It's just total dead just very very long red light flashing
I have tried Jl_Cmder doesn't seems to be working
I Can see it connected with pc but not Dm
I have tried APPLOADER with jvm and no jvm just stuck on waiting for device initialization... for hours and hours and keep sending error device not found

And yes there was no sign of life for about 4-to 5 hours but after pulling out battery and connecting it to external charger I am getting a battery sign on screen.

What else can be done to it?

Will really really appreciate help

I think the only remaining course of action is to buy a replacement device. It appears to me, from your description, that the device is a goner. Administer last rites and get a new one.

Pull the plug and let it die gracefully. Comfort yourself with a new one. Now go in peace.
