I was told by a friend to let it sit for 24 hrs in rice. I'm gonna try to turn it now and see. Fingers crossed!!
I agree with a few posts here that you may experience short life. The pic above is a 1947 Crosley Radio I’m fixing. You need to use Isopropyl Aclohol and a Q Tip or something like De Oxit. Things can short out fairly fast.
Glad it’s working but I would pull it a part. Be careful and let it dry out thoroughly. Not hard to do. Just be very mindful of the board. Compressed air wouldn’t hurt. But it you may not have to do anything the issue is that light has seen more exposure to salt and minerals in a dunk then it would of under your sink. I’d clean it.
They are definitely splash proof or resistant. Their designed that way but the boards aren’t. If it went into your tank. Grab the tools clean the boards and wires let dry and run it.
That particular light does not have any conformal coating. I would argue to say that it is not designed to be wet.
Perhaps that's their way of engineering obsolescence into it?
