Default I accidentally wet my GTab 7.7

I made the mistake of not turning it off immediately and tried pressing buttons.

The volume buttons and power buttons went crazy for a bit then the LED flash flicked on and off a while then eventually all the harware buttons failed.

What replacement parts do you guys suggest I try getting? Could the problem be isolated to the power/volume switch piece?

Did you leave it to dry for a week, if it's bought second hand I guess buying a device with a broken display but yet functioning and replace the circuit board..don't know if sammy still do repairs but I guess how much your willing to pay..
ebay should have what your looking for

that's a brilliant idea! no I didnt leave it out to dry for a week before I pressed buttons on my wet device (the absolute most essential part of saving a water damaged device, don't do it people!)
