Default htc one lcd backlight isn't working

a couple of days ago my phone got a little wet. so it was not turning on at all. just the back and home buttons were flashing. today after a couple of days not using the phone, i held the power button for 10 seconds and the screen lit up again. everything seemed to work. but as soon as the screen goes back to sleep it will not turn again unless you hold the power button to reset the phone. now i noticed that even though the screen seems to be off, it's actually on and the backlight for the LCD screen isn't on. i noticed it after looking at an angle and it seems to work just fine. you just can barely seen anything. is there a way to get this working without having to send it back to HTC?

Maybe there's still residual water in the phone? When I dropped my phone in the toilet about a year ago, I put my phone in a big bag of rice (only about $2-3) and that helped pull all the excess moisture out of my phone. Worth a shot anyway!
