Optio P80 stopped working after...

...I washed it in the clothes washer. It's all dry now and I still get nothing. Doesn't power up. Does anyone know what I might need to do to get it to work again? I am guessing it MIGHT be the battery but I don't want to invest in a battery if the camera itself is dead and gone forever.
Anyone experience this before or know what I need to do?

Thanks!

I don't think the P80 is a waterproof camera like the W90/WG series. There's a pretty good chance the camera itself is dead...sorry to say. Buying a new camera may be more cost effective than having the P80 repaired.

Good reason to buy a new camera.
