I lost control of my camera d40x

\015 Ok i wanted to go to bulb mode but my camera was only going to 30'' and no more after that! i was in M mode, i reset the settings and even hard reset it using the button under the usb connection! I went in my menu setup and some options say "This option is not available with current settings" like the mirror lock up or the iso auto . Also my aperture is LOCK, i cant control it, i press the button and turn the dial wheel its changing bt when i let go it goes back to "Lo" and i keep getting the warning Your subject is too dark... what can i do to restore it to factory settings or something!

Dropped my camera in a pool of water in a glacier 12 months ago. I immediately took out the battery and memory card. I then spent 2 hours with a hair dryer drying the camera.
