    I was at the cafetaria of my company this morning and I accidentaly spilled a big cup of water on myself, and also on my Treo 600 that's clipped on my belt. I dried it carefuly and I tried to turn it on. It seemed OK. Later on, I tried to use it, and the screen was ALL BLACK. I could see the LCD backlight on the borders and I could hear the "bips" when I was pressing the buttons, but the screen was totally black. I was very worried.

    I left the Treo on my laptop's power brick for the afternoon, in hope that the heated inside would dry out faster. After a while the screen started to become a bit brighter. I was able to see enough to set the contrast to 0 and the brightness to maximum. The screen was flickering at that point.

    In the evening, I came home and when I tried, the screen was black again (crap). I plugged the Treo in it's craddle and decided to turn it on and leave it. The treo shuts itself off after 2 to 3mn, so I had to constantly turn it on again. As it was heating up, the screen became brigther and brighter... until it became all normal again. I guess that the water evaporated.

    Phew ! Well, I wanted to share my experience, in case this happens to you, don't throw you Treo 600 against the wall right away, there's hope!
