Hi,
 
Ifixit does not do repairs. Its' volunteers provide advice on how to fix it yourself or if you can't manage this then to get it professionally repaired.
 
As you know water and electronics and electricity are not a good mix.
 
The minerals in the water cause corrosion and the water also provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the camera's operating design and could damage the components. The corrosion process starts immediately and will not stop until it has been thoroughly cleaned away.
 
'''Rice''' is good to eat but '''does nothing to fix the problems '''caused by corrosion.
 
[[Don't Put Your Device in Rice. Here's Why...]]
 
First '''do not turn on your camera''' and then you need to with the camera turned off, '''remove the battery as soon as possible''' from the camera to minimize further damage.''
 
Then you need to completely dis-assemble the rest of the camera and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+ to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is only 70% or less and is not as effective. If you do check the label to verify the amount
 
Here is a link that in general describes the process.
 
[[Electronics Water Damage]]
 
As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.
 
You may also have to replace the battery as sometimes it is hard to recover a battery from water damage.
Hopefully after doing all this your camera might work properly again
 
Here is a link to the Ifixit repair guide for your camera which may be of some help.

If this process seems too daunting, take your phone to a reputable, professional camera repair service and ask for a quote for a repair. If you decide to do this, ''do it sooner than later.''
