Default Fix screen?

Hey guys I just have a quick question.

So my brother dropped his phone in a poodle awhile back and now screen won't turn on, he put it in rice for a while but it won't turn on.

The phones led light still works,
And it still vibrates, the soft keys turn on a little but not much.

Is their any way to fix it without replacing the screen or is it a goner?

In a poodle? Poor dog.

After the phone was retrieved from the water was the batter pulled immediately? Was the phone in the rice without the battery in it? How long did you leave it in the rice?

You could try using a hair dryer. If this does not work the phone is probably a lost cause.

Changing the screen won't fix it .The water probally ruined the circuit board if it doesn't dry out an start working.
