    Phone got spashed pretty good with fresh water. Dried it out. Operates
    normally, but LEDs remain on always, even after the phone is shut off.
    Because of this, battery runs down real quickly.

    Is there any hope for me to fix this? Might a new battery work? Help,
    please!

    Problem is; damp residue causes oxidization of the internal components, plus
    low resistance between the traces on the printed circuit probably causing
    the backlights to stay on.

    Nope a new battery wont fix the problem, and more than likely no
    service-centres will touch the phone due to repair warranty issues.

    Could you claim a new phone on your house contents insurance. ?

    Ugh - that's a bad thought. Anyone else had any similar experiences?
