Replace the logic board and display assembly. And never put your phone in a liquid, as it will seriously damage it.

" never put your phone in a liquid, as it will seriously damage it." not quite correct. It is perfectly okay to submerge and phone or electronic component in something like isopropyl alcohol or sterile water. The only thing with isopropyl alcohol is to use a concentration high enough i.e. 90%+ to clean the device. It will displace water and evaporate quickly. Submersion in any of these liquids does not contribute to failure. It also does not destroy plastics etc. It is really not a rumor to use this to clean your phone.
