The only way to survive water drop is normally a unit that was off when dropped and completely dried before powering up. Problem comes in due to most units being on and under power when dropped.
The first thing you should do after recovering from moisture is to power it off. Then you have to either send out for repair which you can do by packing it in rice or use some of those silica bags you get with a lot of electronics now a days and send out for repair without powering up.
Or you need to completely open the unit up and place the pieces out on a piece of paper towel or paper or any non conductive surface - cardboard works well. Then using a hairdryer or something that blows "warm" air not a paint stripper - blow it dry or just enough to warm it up a few times till you can see no more evidence of moisture. Then reassemble and try it out.
Electronics and water just really do not mix. It is luck which usually determines the final fate and main boards can suffer various damage issues when in contact with water - some which are really obvious and others that become a nuisance.

-Best bet with water damage if you are not repair savvy is send it out for repair. Spitfiremods.com has techs to speak with about any issue and I do alot of game console repair and have called them many times with much support.
