Hi, welcome to TSF

It sounds like there's a short circuit in the keyboard. If it's still under warranty (and you didn't spill some fluid in it) - return it for a new one.

You could try that. To do that you usually have to open the keyboard - but then you'll void the warranty. I've tried it myself a couple of times and never succeeded to revive them.

Well, you've got nothing to lose. Take the back off of the keyboard, but don't do anything more - it can be pretty hard to get all those parts in place again. Then put it somewhere (not too) warm overnight. If you're lucky all the water will evaporate.
