    Got my z30 caught in a major rain storm. it's now stuck in an on/off cycle. How do I turn it off so I can get it in some rice to dry off (and stop causing more damage)?

    Put it in the rice now, regardless of the boot-loop.
    OR
    If your tech savvy and have the tools, open it up and disconnect the battery:
    See:


    All you need to do is tear it down to the point of getting the screen loose from the frame, you can then get at the battery connection and unplug it.

    Note: The Tools Needed section at the start of the video mentions you need a T4 Philips screwdriver, this is incorrect. It is a T4 Torx screwdriver.

    Keep it in the rice for longer than a day/night.
