    i dont think theres a way to fix that, sorry.

    you should have waited about a week before turning it on so it dried off, because water+electricity=disaster

    Go buy a screwdriver, if it works, it would be much cheaper than buying a new PSP

    Yeah you can send a keyboard through a dishwasher and as long as it drys fine before you turn it back on it will be okay. Now I am not suggesting that you send your PSP through the dishwasher I am just saying theres hope. Now you may have possibly short circuited your motherboard. But as one member suggested let it sit in some uncooked rice for a while as the rice will pull all the moisture off the parts.

    When you turned it back on, you fried some circuits. So try drying now won't work.

    LOL!

    I think a good way to go would be those desicant packs found in so many food products (the back that says: DO NOT EAT!!!)

    If you have no rice try bread,newspaper, paper towels, kleenex or just plain hot dog/hamburger buns.

    Don't try anything else. Go buy yourself a pack of rice for $2 or borrow some from a neighbor. Remember you want the entire PSP to be covered.

    And while I am telling you how to do this I am 98% sure that you fried your PSP when you tried turning the power on while it was still wet.
