Default Zen V Plus Water Fountain

Okay so today when I was drinking water today, my Zen fell and got wet. I didn't think it was such a big deal until now. At first I put it in my backpack, and didn't think about it. Then later today when I took it out, I turned it on and it worked fine. I turned it off. I tried to turn it back on later but now it doesn't work. When I try to turn it on nothing happens. I also tried charging it but nothing happened. I have scrolled through the forums and now I realized I did something stupid by turning it on and attempting to charge it. Right now I am hoping that drying it should work by just letting it sit there. Is there anything I can do? Will it work again? Or am I screwed?

You could be. It will take a while to dry completely. Try using a hair dryer to speed things up a bit, but give it a day so before trying to turn it back on. You can try disassembling it and drying it that way. While it is open, you can check to see if there is any electrical damage that is noticeable like checking the battery contacts to see if they are any burn marks. Hopefully, the water didn't get to the OLED display which is easy damaged by water. Good luck!
