Two members who responded here were accurate, I might add when phone got wet cleaning is better to make it corrosion before rushing to replace parts ... this way you will have an indication.

the backlight on your screen sounds like its out, so your probably going to need a new screen and new back camera as the flash is on the camera, there may also be corrosion or liquid still in the phone that needs to be taken apart and cleaned

Most likely the Backlight line on the logic board was shorted. I don't think that a new LCD will fix the issue. But you can try.

The backlight is two components on the logic board, requires soldering ... If you do not have the equipment and experience it is better to let someone professional to perform the replacement.

First thing you have to do is clean the board i think alcohol and a fine brush will do the job fo you, then try to connect new screen, if the problem is still there then it is the backlight
