Can this Kindle be saved?

Hello guys!

4 or 5 days ago my toddler sprinkled some water on this Kindle DX. Almost instantly the lower part of the screen was frozen. Right now it's functional, it updates fine, but as you can see in the pictures below, the lower part displays the same thing that's on top. How come? And is it fixable?
Thanks in advance!

You might try the old trick of putting it in a large freezer bag with rice (uncooked) to absorb all the excess water. Leave it for a week or so. I've heard of that working with other electronics.
