    Not much if anything as its a gamble that it will even work, but id take the risk lol

    youll get something for it not sure how much it will be fixable

    submerse it in rice completely cover it and the rice will draw out the water even if you need to wet it again and then do it!

    I'd buy at a low price just to have something to dismantle and play about with! Always like a challenge!

    there's loads of places who could fix it for you

    really?thought it was gone4ever-was thinking MAYBE mite get something for it for parts or something...

    we have had a few mishaps due to our teenager and both contain water and cola and we were told to do the rice thing and it did work! not saying it will after a year though!

    I wouldnt reccomend Ebay for it since its faulty and unknown plus as said it may be rusted or permanently damaged, its about just being lucky enough to find a working part, id say it would be worth £10-£15 max maybe £18 delivered.

    alright i,ll go 20 delivered depending on pics?
