A rep sent in his 8700. It appears to have water damaged (water detector tape is red). It doesn't turn on, but flashes a 3 red flashes followed by 2 red flashes, pauses for a couple of seconds, then repeats. Can anyone tell me what this means? If indeed it is water damaged, can it be repaired? Thanks. Stephen.

Could be savable, if the battery has been out, if not, probably not.
