    LCD Backlight is dead, can it be fixed? (Water Dmg)

    Well, a couple week ago I got into the pool while my phone was in my pocket . Oops..... I let it dry out for a while but every time I would insert the battery the LED on front (flash) would come on fullforce, so figured it FUBAR.

    Anyway, today I messed with it and got it to turn on and it seems to work except you cannot see anything! If I put the screen in the correct light and the right angle I can get an idea of what I'm doing, at least it was enough to copy files to my computer .

    Is the backlight fixable or is the phone just garbage now?

    Thanks!

    Exactly! Plus I had it sitting in pieces for weeks so I'm sure it's as dry as it's going to get haha.

    I had another member offer to replace the LCD screen at his shop so I sent it off in the mail yesterday in hopes that it'll be fixed without issue.
