Default I got sea water in my Zen and now its dead!

I fell over and the beach and got water in my Zen. I dried it out over a few days and tried to reboot it but to no avail. I charged it but it doesnt hold the charge and its developed a clicking. From what Ive found out, the clicking indicates that the hard drive is knackered? When powered up, it gets to the Zen screen and thats it. I tried the recovery mode to no avail either. It doesnt turn off either on the switch so I have to wait for the battery to die before it shuts down.

Im not technically minded with electronics at all so fixing it myself is a no-no. I got the player on ebay 3 years ago so the warranty is out and I dont want to get charged a fourtune by Creative to fix it. Where can I get it fixed? Regular computer repair centres dont do this sort of work do they? Should I just bite the bullet and fork out for a new one?

Any help would be really appreciated
