Under water 30 seconds - turns on but screen is not responding
My Moto X was submerged in 1 foot of water for about 30 seconds. Within 2 minutes I had the case opened and cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol and used a blow dryer. I waited a few hours and it would not turn on. I put it in a bag of rice, with opened case. 24 hours later I dropped it off with a "repair" shop and they said there was corrosion and the mobo was short circuited. I think the repair shop may be mistaken because when I brought my Moto X paper weight home I plugged it in to the charger and it turned on. Well, it showed the Motorola Earth and then went to "94% charged" picture. That is all it did. So, I turned it off and then on. It turned all the way on!!! My sim card is not in it and the screen is non-responsive when touching the screen. I'm tempted to put my sim card in it. I connected the Moto X to my computer and I am copying all the files off of the Moto X to my computer now. It does not sound like the mobo is blown. Idea's?
