Fz300 NOT weatherproof / splashproof

I just had a bit of water get in the battery compartment, was still working, turned it off to put in a new battery a little later and it doesn't turn on now. I've only had the camera for 2 months, meanwhile the last one had a lens failure after over a year. These cameras are horribly frail, a great shame. Anyone know if theres any hope of it turning back on or do i need to send it to panasonic? I opened the compartment and left it in the sun for a while and now its on my car dashboard although it isn't hot out now.

*edit* I am unable to find out how to contact panasonic regarding my warranty, they make it as difficult as possible so they don't have to do anything.  This company will not be getting my business again...

Thanks

Brett
