Canon 5d got wet.... likely damage??

My camera 5d mark 1 got wet at the swimming pool today. Not back in Scotland until Tuesday so wondering if anyone has any ideas of how bad this damage sounds.

It was initially totally dead but has come back to life slowly.

now -
The Auto focus doesn't work,
The quick control dial doesn't work - but the set button now does.
It can read and change aperture ok
The direct print button has a blue light on in it all the time.

it can take and display a photo ok in manual mode but not every time. It's as if the shutter button is not making a connection every time.

I have already contacted A and J Johnston in Glasgow who will look at it on Tuesday but I am obviously curious to know if anyone has any idea what is the likely damage.
