Do I need to replace my screen to remove the screen lines?
My 1-year-old brought my phone for a dip in a bucket of water while it was in an Otterbox case. I took the phone from the case ASAP and turned it off, then put it in rice (before I read that it is not recommended). Turned it back on after an hour or so and saw screen lines, but the touch screen was responsive and there didn't seem to be any other problems.
I followed the directions for water damage to a degree: opened up my phone, disconnected the battery and saw that there was some water that had entered the phone and wiped it up with toilet paper, then wiped away the fibers with a clean paintbrush. Turned it back on, still lines. Opened it again, but this time i disconnected the screen from the phone and let it dry out overnight. Reassembled it and lines are still there, but not quite as bad. I'm wondering if I should just deal with it, since there don't appear to be other issues and I can still see the screen and what not, even though it looks a bit like a game boy screen now, or if I should replace the screen. Thoughts? Thanks!
