The blinking red light means that there isn't enough charge to power up.

If water has - or is - shorting the battery then you want to expect that.

The moisture indicator is just that. You can trip it and have no damage or not trip it and have damage. It's just an indicator for service staff.

Take it off the charger, give it another day in the rice. Let it sit somewhere warm like a windowsill if you can. (If your windowsills are warm now lol.)

Avoid the hair dryer, that's just breaking up the water into smaller bits and forcing them deeper into nooks and crannies.

Best luck, keep us posted!
