    Replace it.

    Remember, it isn't the water that does the damage. It's the combination of water and electricity - the act of applying power to wet electronics - that causes the destruction. The voltage will follow the water, and short circuit the device components in a nanosecond.

    How long ago did the device get wet? How soon after that was power applied? If the internals were not absolutely bone dry, any voltage will start frying things. Sooner or later, it will die. Sounds like in your case, it's sooner.

    Best practice is never power up a wet device of any kind

    Hank nails it... you m might be able to put it in a bag with a bunch of packets of silica gel obtained at a craft store for a couple days and get it dry enough to work... but there's no guarantee how long it would keep working... you're better off to make use of AppleCare+ if you have it - or carrier/3rd party insurance.
