Luminosity has drop after water in ...(

Hi all and tks in advance ,

After a fishing day ,i drop my samsung galaxy note3 in water ,10 feet ,after 20 minutes in water i was able to catch it ,but my friend as soon try to power on (bad idea i presume)and he told me that all was ok zzzzzzz

Anyway, real soon ,i unplug the battery ,the sim card and put all that inside a box full of rice for 36 hours

After i try it ,charge the battery but screen was strange and become black in and out ,so i remove all the screw (12)and put the main board in the rice for24hours

For 2 days ,it was ok ,some strange stuff but not a big deal

But later ,the luminosity was not good ,like not 100%but arround 35-40 so the picture is not clear like before even if all is at the maximum on the set up and no picture saving is at on

So i haVE remove again the screw and reput the board inside the rice ,

Question is ,where can i check on the board to see if there is some corrosion ,or what can i do ,to get backmy great cell with great picture like before

Fred, the very first thing you want to do is to skip the rice. Rice does not do anything but gives you a false sense of hope. It will not fix your phone or stop corrosion. what you want to do is to clean your phone with 90%+ isopropyl alcohol and a soft brush after you disassemble it with the help of this teardown. Check for any burned, charred or missing components. Once you have itr cleaned, you want to reassemble and reevaluate. If your image should still be foggy etc. I suggest to replace the display assembly. Hope this helps, good luck.
