Water damaged cellphone screen on

Hi, yesterday I accidentally dropped my cellphone into water, and it stayed in there no more than 1 sec, then I tried to turn it off, but already was turned off itself, or I don't know what happened, but it did not turn on or off, so I exposed the phone for dry, on the morning I tried to turn it on again, I thought it was already dried, but doesn't work when tried to turn it on, I put on charger then the screen turned on at 0% battery then turned off, I did it twice and happened the same, so I exposed the phone for drying but it doesn't turn on, what would have happened and how to solve it? thanks, please help.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I've recovered my phone from the same issue. If you really want to know, i had to pull my phone apart and replace the battery since the water got all the way there. If you made the same mistake i did and keep turning it on, most likely you shorted the battery and maybe other parts. I suggest opening the phone and cleaning with isopropyl alcohol (disconnecting the battery and everything first!) any parts that you see have corrosion on it, although check whether you are covered by warranty first to save you the hassle (most places dont cover water damage.) I hope the best for you and you dont have as many issues as mine does now

The first is , that brand is the cell? the other is , yours error was turn it on , you should let it off and enter it in rice ( rice adsorbs moisture ) , it is recommended that you take it to make a check- center technical.

Cheers,
