I placed in rice for half a day and left it in an oven at about 100 degree F for about 10 minutes to dry out anything if it was to have any water and the screen acts the same. The water indicator has not been set off.

I live in the USA so sonyw arrant support would be of no use. any suggestion?

Usually drying the screen should fix it.

The problem with swimming pools are that they have chlorine in them. Sony only advertises waterproofing for fresh water. The chlorine may have reacted with something, making the touchscreen go completely nuts for this extensive period of time.

I would've avoided the oven if I were you.
