    Is the light on the main screen or LED? If screen, is it the whole screen? I think you may want to continue drying it out, use dessicant if you can find some, rice takes a while. Good luck:motdroidvert:

    1, rice is an emergency measure as commercial desiccant is a MUCH better choice.

    2, and most important, you need to leave it in the rice for at least 48 hours before putting the battery back in.

    Hopefully nothing has shorted. Pull the battery and leave it alone for at least another 24 hours!

    dont get your hopes up, droids dont like water. insurance is your best bet. the rice thing worked with dumb phones never seen a droid come back to life being soaked. good luck, there is a thread about how to deal, i looked but could not find, someone will give you the link.

    the blue light is flickering all kinds of colors now. it is where the indicator light is located. guess i better make a claim to the insurance company!

    That may be your best choice, who knows you may even get some D2 goodness

    Turn up your sound, maybe it's trying to communicate with you like the ship in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. :)
