Tablet [Q] My Tab fall in water and NOW

Hello all there , and happy with first post here even am interrupted with my Galaxy tab 7.7

my tab sprayed with water and it was working normally but suddenly i powered off , and when i tried to open it it hangs on " Galaxy Tab 7.7 ".
I tried to login to recovery mode but it open in few seconds of recovery mode in few seconds then restart.

i tried the download mode and it works , i downloaded firmware 4.1.2 with only one file and uploaded it successfully through Odin .
But with the same issue , open and hangs on welcome " Galaxt Tab 7.7" , also when i tired to power off it , it restart again and stop in the same message till its battery become empty .

Any suggestions please ?

I just did the same......
This is what worked for me....
Do this immediately. ..you tab can get rust inside...need
To dry it out ASAP.
Get small skinny metal sim card removal tool.
Pry the front screen out and carefully then remove everything
You can.all boards plugs battery etc.
Then put all big stuff into a box of uncooked rice.
Leave for a week.then re assemble..
Put on charge...
When charged got to download mode.
Flash JB stock rom...
Now it may boot loop..don't worry.
Go to recovery and factory reset.
Now start and your up and running again.
I had to flash rom twice on mine.....before I could get recovery to open.
Before attempting it watch the YouTube video how to
Get battery out of 7.7
This will give you an idea how things unclip
Be careful. Good luck.
