Screen not working after water damage
My phone was submerged in water (shallow puddle, but it was pouring out) for several hours. Fortunately it was powered off at the time. I gave it a day to dry out, then opened it up and tried to finish drying it out as best I could without isopropyl alcohol. After turning it on, the screen had a large amount of water still between the touchscreen and the lcd, but was functional (it had already had some water damage in there). A couple hours later, it starts going on the fritz, with the lcd not working but touch still functional and the lcd starting back up after power cycling the phone. The next morning, the phone itself still works (my alarm went off, power button still works, home button still works) but the lcd will not turn on, and I think touch has stopped working as well.
To preface the question itself, I know I messed up. I should have left it longer to dry, and with that amount of water damage, I should have cleaned it properly before powering it on. With that said, what can I do now? Is it worth it to try replacing the screen? To get my hands on some alcohol and try cleaning it properly?
I have brought my phone in to a repair shop with good reviews and experience in water damage as of midafternoon Friday. Hopefully it's just the screen that's dead and nothing else - if all else fails, I have a backup from Thursday night, but I really like my phone, so hopefully it'll be back up and running soon after being cleaned properly
Is this a good question?
