My phone was accidentally dropped into a sink full of water. I took it out quickly, and everything was working well apart from two buttons:

  1. Windows button which is ok because I can use back button
  2. Increase volume button.

I can't increase volume of my phone now... Is there any way to increase volume not using a button?

The phone I am using is Samsung i766

Edit

After 4-5 days the buttons started working again!

How long have you dried it out for? Might take a while to remove all of the moisture. –  row1 Oct 24 '12 at 9:04
    
27 hours right now. There were also charging problem which now come back to normal, so charging is working properly. –  MaciejLisCK Oct 24 '12 at 9:20
    
Personally I would still try to make sure it is completely dried out before charging or turning it on. If you didn't already, then consider placing the phone in a bowl of rice popularmechanics.com/technology/how-to/tips/4269047 –  row1 Oct 24 '12 at 9:39
    
Thanks for advice, it seems to be very helpful, unfortunately I still can't use increase volume button. –  MaciejLisCK Oct 25 '12 at 7:59
