I spilled water over my Xperia L recently. I quickly removed the battery, sim card and wiped it a dry cloth and put the phone in a rice bag for a day to absorb the moisture. I put it back together and turned the phone on, it was working fine for a couple of hours. After that the power button stopped working. I use the camera key each time to unlock the phone and use it.
I took it to the sony service center and after hearing about the problem, they said the board has to be replaced if water has gone in and suggested me to get a new phone as its expensive to replace the board.
I ensure my phone doesnt turn off because if it does I have no idea if i'll be able to turn it on again.
Please let me know if there is any way to fix it and get the button working again.
