    I have an HTC Hero200 that my tenant threw into the pool. I recovered the phone after about an hour or so and figured it was trash. Several hours later it lit up with HTC on the phone. I figured WTH and pulled the battery and left it to dry out. I put it in a bag of rice and left it for several days. I took it apart and wiped the screen, window, and all connectors with alcohol and let it sit open for several hours. When I power it up, it says HTC and every once in a while it briefly shows a butterfly on the display for a few seconds and then reboots. I am not an android user, but in searching the web figured out how to get it to boot using the power button and volume key. When it comes up is says touch panel fail. When I go th HBoot Mode, it says "no image or wrong image" for all the files it scrolls through.

    Is it possible for me to recover this phone and use it for a media player and camera?

    Its more than likely permanently damaged in a way it can't boot.
