I think i got water in my lcd from trying to install a screen protector.
Anyone kno anyway I can somehow dry the water up? I just checked the phone again after being in rice for 12hrs. Still there.

I kno somethings wrong cause I have "show touches" enabled and its as if im touching the phone with 3-5 fingers at once

My touches dont register cause the water is acting as a "finger" itself

How'd you get water in the LCD from putting on a screen protector? I'd recommend removing the screen protector and drying out screen by putting it in rice again.

If that doesn't work you can try putting it in rice and in the refrigerator.

If it were my phone I would start to disassemble. Not a complete teardown but enough to get some air to the screen to dry it out some more. Probably still put it in a bag of uncooked rice. I do not recommend turning it on anymore if you still see water you could be making it worse or you already did too much damage. Be patient and let it dry completely. I dropped my g1 in the toilet (didnt pee yet)way back in the day. Immediately ripped out the battery and let that thing air dry for a day. Worked out for me and never had any issues after. Good luck.
