I used my z1 in water and it turned off after a while. Then, a day after, it suddenly turned itself on, and worked for about a day. During that period, there were an issue about battery level, and so on, it showed wrong level, but it worked. Also, i could notice some drops of water under the screen. Afterwards, it turned off, and I couldn't make it work ever since.

But... When I press vol up and power btn it vibrates 3 times. When I hold pow it vibrates once (turns on) and after couple of seconds it obvioulsy starts working, I get audio notices about new mail, SMS and so on. The second I receive mail on computer phone makes a sound as well, so it is actualy on. But... Screen is not working at all...

What can I do?

You can try drying your phone through rice and forget about it for a couple days, however I recommend you send your phone in since the screen is already not working. If you want though, to reduce cost, you can replace the parts yourself, but it's very hard to find the parts, diagnosing what's working and not, and performing the assembly / disassembly process.

there are videos how to take z1 into parts, but it is not easy, seriously. i would also try opening ports and put phone into rice for some days.

Just one question, have you tried contacting Sony? The device is IP certified, should be covered under waranty.
