Title:

Water damaged phone, turns on but screen is black

Text:

Just recently, I dropped my phone in water, panicked and took battery and such out and dried the pieces and placed them in rice. I took it out and found out that my phone can turn on, receive notifications and all, but my screen won't turn on and remains black. I went to Sprint store, told me that they do not look at water-damaged phones... What are my options? The phone minus the screen is working perfectly and i would hate to buy a new phone.
