My name is ***** ***** I'm sorry you're having issues. Whenever electronics get waterlogged it's not recommended to even try to power them up. There is a lithium ion battery in the device that could short circuit causing unrepairable damage internally. While there's no way anyone can tell if this is repairable in it's current condition without disassembly, it would be recommended to contact Bose and have them inspect it. In many cases the unit would be seemed unrepairable as the cost of replacing the internal failed components can exceed the cost of s new one once labor is factored in. However they may also offer you a brand new unit at a discounted price. They handle that on a case by case basis however.

In this case you would need to contact Bose Service, as they are the only ones that repair their systems:
