Anyone with K10D problems?

I did some shooting in the rain a while ago and noticed some mosture in the camera and in the viewfinder. I wiped, dried and aired the camera out but ever since then, its life has not been the same. It hunts endlessly when trying to focus and refuses to go into any other mode but Shutter, Aperture or Sensitivity priority.

It's going to be a BIG challenge shipping it out for repairs (and where to even at that?) Is there something I can check or do? Have you had this (or similar) problem? Can anyone help with this?

Thanks in advance!

Open all the covers and let it dry out inside your house. You can also put it in an enclosed space with some silica gel to help

Silica is good, if not available, use bagged rice. Put the camera in a box with some rice that is in a fabric bag.
Let sit for couple days.
