sandy, rice is only good as a first aid. It will not remove all the water and moisture, nor will it prevent corrosion. I suggest you clean your phone once more. Disassemble every part off it and soak it in 90%+ isopropyl alcohol. Clean all the parts with a soft brush, including the logicboard and all cable connectors. Check for burned, missing components. You definitely want to replace the battery. After that, reassemble and re-evaluate. If you still do not have a backlight,replace the display assembly. I can not stress the cleaning enough. If you o not do that, your phone will eventually fail due to corrosion damage. The same goes for the battery. Once a battery has been exposed, you do need to replace it. Hope this helps, good luck.

please use small plastic with RICE and put the phone by 24 hours. The rice will be absorb the humidity. However this is a 98% from can be work. If after you did the problem remain , the backlight is faulty.

God bless you
