Cool Unresponsive touch screen

Guys,

Need some help here. A couple of days ago I spilled some water on the navigation buttons on the lower part of my Hermes that was working ok just fine for the last 8 months. Cleaned it up with a towel and everything looked ok for another 3-4 hours when the touch screen graduatelly stopped responding, now is dead. I took everything apart and cleaned all the connectors however I still have the same problem, no improvement of any kind.
I've seen in the forum that some other people had this issue, what I am curios is to hear if anyone was able to fix it. Thinking of replacing the digitizer/lcd..will this fix the problem or there is some other screen driver chip that may be damaged?

Thanks
