    My missus dropped hers into a glass of water, did the usual drying out process & put it down as dead.
    Came across it 6 months later stuck at the back of a draw & thought hell got nothing to loose, switched it on & it worked fine.
    All can suggest if you have the screwdivers to take it apart carefully do so & leave it in airing cupboard for the weekend to well & truely dry it out.

    As Ben says let it dry out for ages. Even when you think it is bone dry. Airing cupboard for a week or so normally does it

    Try ironing it, then you'll have the full set.

    after my other half dropping her D500 in the bath, it took around 4/5 months to dry out work properly.

    is it not insured?

    Thats once you have taken it from drying out on the clothes line. Joking...

    The more you can get it down to smaller bits the quicker the drying out process

    Try the tumble dryer again. Lol. Hair dryer is another good way to dry it out quick, but as said before take it apart carefully.

    Mobile phones are usually just T6 screws. Looking at my K750i I can see what you mean about the screws looking more rounded at the edges, but they are still T6 (and a couple of very small cross-head ones as well) - just tried it now.

    Tricky bit is knowing how it all unclips - and which bits - without breaking any catches etc.!
