P100 got wet, won't work

My P100 got wet from rain. After several days of attempting to dry it including placing it in a bag of desiccant, it tries to turn on but gives the message 'camera will turn off to prevent overheating'. Then it shuts off. If I fiddle with the rotary dial that controls the type of image, e.g. scene, portrait, etc, the lens opens but nothing else works. I've removed the back and found some minor corrosion evidence where the smaller of the two ribbon cables connects to the main board.

Is there anything else I should be looking for or should I just send it out for repair.

Thanks for any help,
