Default Water/ Won't Turn on

I was washing my jacket for about 30 seconds in water when I realized my Sansa Clip was in my pocket. It worked and I dried it up. I was a complete idiot and I plugged it back in my computer for it to charge up since half the battery was gone. (not from the water). Now it won't turn on after it froze when I disconnected it from my computer. Anyone help please?


Edit*
When I plug it into the computer it cant even read it now. Nothing turns on or anything.

It’s toast, hopefully it wasn’t that expensive of a lesson to learn don’t turn on any electronics after they get wet. Sometimes you can actually save them by taking them apart, drying up what you can and letting them dry out naturally.

Yep the mix between the water and the electricity connected solders that weren't meant to be connected and fried the device most likely. you could try taking it apart and letting it dry for 48 hours.

Is there any way I can retrieve the songs from my sansa clip and put them back on my computer since I deleted them from my computer.

Because I'm getting a new mp3 shortly

You might have little chance if you let it dry out right. It would run off of the USB power.

Your very lucky, especially considering the clip is really not simple to open up.
