Phone Screen not working (no touch)

Hello!

A while back, I dropped my phone in water and immediately disassembled it to dry it off. The symptoms were a screen that either worked perfectly after reboot and then turned black every time the screen was turned on, or a perfectly functional device except that the digitizer did not work. So, after reading some "advice", I soaked my screen in 91% alcohol, leaving permanent marks. Then, I soaked the logic board in alcohol with a vibration assist from a washing machine. The logic board seemed to be fixed, and being a perfectionist, I tried to go a step further by using a food dehydrator to dry the alcohol marks out of the screen. However, after a while of drying (of screen only, vacuum sealed into a container with silica gel and dessicants), the screen digitizer does not work anymore.

My question is this: is the problem with the screen or the logic board? I noticed that some antenna contacts were slightly bent out of shape, but I am not sure what happened to the rest of the board. There doesn't seem to be corrosion. Keep in mind that after the laundry machine vibration, I took the board out of alcohol, but after I discovered the screen issues, I put it in for around 24 hours.

If needed, I can send photos.

@froggr123 just add your pictures to the question. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question for that. Going by your description alone it sounds like the issue is with your display assembly. I would go ahead and replace that. If the error is on the motherboard, then there is only a slim chance of repair. You would need a schematic which is not available. Sony simply does not have those anymore. Replace the screen and re-evaluate Sony Xperia X LCD Screen Replacement

@oldturkey03 I will upload images tomorrow (just got back from out of country). Will order screen later from Amazon. The WitRigs screen does not have a frame, and I don't want to detach the frame for safety reasons. Hopefully the screen is legit. Thanks!
