Answer
water affects everything

most likely there will be nothing you can do. just plan on getting your nephew to replace it.

one thing though, you need to be specific as to the problem instead of saying it is not working. that covers from not being able to turn it on to broken on/off switch.

Re: repair

1. Get the service manual.
2. Find out what part is broken and needs to be replaced.
3. Buy the replacement part.
4. Install it.
5. Test. If still no luck go back to #2.
6. It's fixed.

May I ask why you post in an Auto repair forum? I don't think a metal detector has much in common with a car.
