Rice is bad mmK? Sorry. The issue is that rice removes the water but leaves behind the corrosive contaminants. It sounds like it might be recoverable. Best course of action is open it up, unplug the battery, remove the LCD and if you're lucky, a quick (10 minute) ultrasonic bath in 91% or better isopropyl alcohol but be enough to bring the whole thing back. If you aren't that lucky, put it on eBay as an as-is phone. You'll get about $300 for it.

Ok, so first I would clean the logic board and it's all its connectors with 90% isopropyl alcohol. Then, it seems as though you may only need to replace the display. However you'll likely have to replace other things.

Here's a guide to get it open, then you'll have to do the cleaning
