Default Unresponsive screen after Xperia J dove into the water

Hey guys!

My bother's brand new xperia J screen stoped responding after he droped it into water.
Actually it died completelly, but after several days in a bag of rice, it was able to suck in the humidity in it, and now everything works except for the touchscreen. Once I saw it booting with clear image on the screen, I thought everything would be fine.

Do you have any other sugestions? Maybe the humidty wasn't completelly sucked and its preventing the touchscreen to work.

Thanks guys

I don't know, maybe you should replace the touchscreen, and pray for everything else to be okay

Really? No quirks? Full 100% working?

Wow.

Did it just touch the water, or fell in it?

Curious, I'm sorry .

Have a nice day!

It seems only the alert light at the top (when u get a call or sms it turns on) seems not to work now.
I believe cause it might still be some hujmidty in it.

But I've saved lots on electronics using this method. Including charked laptops and cellphones found on the ground dirty water.
this one fell on the sink I think and it dove enterelly in it.

Yeah, the rice is said to soak up the water - one of my friends said he saved his S4 that way.
Insert really cool signature here...
