Do not try to power it on. That may further damage the circuits inside by sending electricity down routes it shouldn't take.

If you can, gently take it apart and let it dry for a long while, ideally near silica dessicant packets. You can later manually remove any debris/minerals left behind by the water with a swab and isopropanol.

If you cannot take it apart, then letting it dry as is will take a while and the chances of it working will be lower, but you can still try it.

@kenyaesmith also note that you should use compressed air to attempt to dry the components if they have recently been dampened, and should definitely have it apart as soon as possible. Do NOT set the components in direct sunlight to dry, as it may cause irreversible damage to your device.

@kenyaesmith you will have to treat it as you would any other water immersed device. For now you need to stop continuing to try to charge, sync or otherwise use your player. This potentially can make a bad situation worse. This may further damage your Clip Jam.

The next thing to do is to clean it. Disassemble your mp3 player. Thi is the part where you will treat into a new frontier. There are no guides for this. You will need a couple of guitar picks and start at teh bottom corner to split the case. The battery is on the bottom so once you release the clips that hold the bottom cover on, split the case gently starting at teh top. The disassembly is the toughest since it requires a lot of patience to do this. Once you have it split you now have access to the battery and the motherboard. You will also have to remove the motherboard. Careful, there will be ribbon cables going to the display etc. Next remove any EMI shields. If you do not remove those, you might as well not do anything. After you removed the shield, clean the whole board, connectors and all with +90% isopropyl alcohol. Follow this guide Even so it was written for an Apple iPhone 3G all the points are still pertinent to your device. While you clean your board, check for any obvious damage, like burned or missing components etc. I can not stress the importance of a good cleaning enough, so do it over and over while replacing the alcohol after each cleaning. Do not use compressed air for the cleaning since that can drive liquid as well as corrosion particles into areas that will cause trouble later on. Using compressed air can also create electrostatic electricity which may damage IC's. It's just not good practice.

When it is properly cleaned, replace the battery. That is not optional but a must do. It will fail if left in the player. All these steps are to avoid delayed failure caused by corrosion. Best thing to do would be to clean it with an ultrasonic cleaner, but if you do not have access to one, this will at least help. Once all this is done, reassemble your phone and reevaluate. Until it is cleaned, everything will only be a guess. Even with all this, water damage has only a small chance to be fully repaired, but at least you can give it a try.

Not cleaning it and leaving it to dry will most likely condemn it to a slow death. Things will continue to corrode, create short circuits and the battery will fail. not a good future for a decent MP3 player.
