Damaged hardware needs to be repaired or probably replaced. Find a Samsung certified repair shop or buy another camera.

Your link needs some work.
I believe I found out what to remove:

This is typical of a faulty CCD sensor.

I suggest you wait longer and hope that it is not completely dry inside.
Remove the battery and memory card, leave the battery door open.
Set the camera on a window sill (in the sun) with the lens pointed away from the sun. Leave it there for a few days.
Then reinstall battery and memory card and try again.

Note: if the camera fell into salt water (ocean or sea), the camera is ruined. The salt will eventually corrode the inside of the camera.
