Default HTC One X sunk in the waters

I have an HTC One X that was dropped in the water.

The guy only wants the data, and i took it out of it and gave it to him. So he told me that the devices is all yours.

I've been trying to fix it ever since he told me that.

The phone boots up normally, sound is working, vibration is too.

The screen's backlight, although set to maximum, it too dim due to water damage. So i took it to a repair shop, he replaced the screen, and a piece of hardware inside the board, but the screen works for about 10 minutes then completely goes off. So we put back the old screen and peice and the same thing happens, 10 mins of dim brightness... then no brightness at all. I'm currently trying to root it so i could stream and control it via PC. I now have it with a very dim screen that works for 30 minutes then needs to rest for 5 minutes so it could go on again.

Any suggestions on what i should replace to really solve that problem is very much appreciated as i really would like to make this device go alive again.

we actually tore it down and left its parts for about a week in a box, would it still help if i did that?
