ZOMBIE 5D Mark 3

Weird but true story..... I had a cup of coffee that I had put down in the curved chair next to me and I put my Mark 3 alongside it and was interrupted by a phone call for twenty minutes. When I returned, to my horror, I saw that the coffee had spilled and the camera was about three inches into the muck for the entire twenty minutes. I turned it off and wiped it down. The next day I turned it on and got an error message on the screen when I tried to start it up. I brought it to Nippon Photo Clinic in NYC and they checked it out and said that the corrosion was so bad they could not repair it and I should send it to Canon repair in Jersey. I did, and got a message from Canon a few weeks later that they could fix it for about $400 as it needed several parts changed. I gave them the green light but was surprised and disappointed when some time later they wrote back that it was in fact beyond any economic repair. I tried to get an explanation as to why at first they gave an estimate and only later realized it could not be fixed but they would only say that this was their conclusion after further evaluation. So I got the camara back and put it in a draw. That was a few months ago. Well the other day for the hell of it I tried out the camera and it is working perfectly. How the photo repair shop and Canon itself could say the camera was dead and now it works fine is beyond me. Any ideas?
