    Turn it off and leave it off for a few days. This will help it dry out. If it doesn't turn on after a few days, then the water damage might be permanent.

    Put it in a bag of uncooked rice for several days, preferrably a week, and leave it there, don't try turning it on to see if it works yet, if it's still wet inside and you turn it on, you can fry it.
