Electronics Water Damage if you can dismantle the phone this would be the best advice we can give.. cleaning the phone thoroughly of any water residue and remove any corrosion is the best solution. It may or may not work but if it does it will give the phone longevity that a rice dry will not. Pay more attention to the connectors/connections and all the motherboard chips. I would not submerge the display unit but a good clean of it's connector may help you.

If you can arrange T6 or T7 screw driver open the case of the phone carefully.if you are getting panic or afraid than please dont proceed.

materials you required are-

1.tooth brush dryer

3.spirit/IPA & hair dryer.

4.T6 or T7 screw dryer.

open back case & remove battery,sim card & sd card.

remove all screws mostly 6 nos & keep them safely.

once you have done this try to remove lcd display,keypad carefully.

now take tooth brush & dip it IPA/spirit ans start cleaning pcb.(green colour board).

After 10-15 mins use hair dryer on board in three turns & dont heat up the pcb only warm.

wait for the 30 mins & turn on the phone.

it will work for sure
