I recently dropped my iphone into water and at first it wouldn't turn on. I came home and plug it into the charger and after a while it turns back on, but now the screen is non-responsive. I cant do anything with it..not even turn it off. I thought if i wait a few days for the water to be completely dried then it would work again b/c i did notice water under the screen at first and after a few days i cant see anymore visible water under the screen but the screen doesnt work anymore. If you can help or have a suggestion, please email me at email@example.com. Thank you.

Re: non responsive touch screen on iphone
If a hard reset (press menu and center button together for 5 sec) and
software restore doesn't cure it , you have a broken digitizer of your iPhone screen assembly. There is an iphone repair guide website that shows you how to do the replacement yourself and a third party iphone repair company that can do it for you.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

1. First, Open up iTunes, plug in your iPod Touch/iPhone to the CPU's USB port. Turn on your CPU's speaker and make sure it is loud enough that you can hear it.
2. Hold down the Home button (top left for iPod Touch and top right for the iPhone with the screen facing you) and the Power button (located on the front bottom of your iPod Touch/iPhone) simutaneously, until the screen goes black and the device turns off. (past the red slider/slide to power off screen)
3. Now let go of the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button. Your iPod Touch/iPhone should have turned off and the screen should not be on.
all it takes is a restart for the iPhone to become responsive again. To
restart your iPhone when it is unresponsive, press and hold the
sleep/wake and home buttons until the Apple logo appears (~10 seconds).
Very low battery
is possible for an iPhone to become unresponsive if the battery drops
to an extremely low level. Plug the iPhone into your computer or wall
charger and allow it to charge for at least 20 minutes before using it
again. God bless you
You may have to get a screen replacement. You can do this yourself if you want to try it and buy the parts. Or take it into a shop, or apple will replace it but most likely charge you way more than any of those options unless its your first replacement.
If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for 10 seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
Try This: 1. Remove Sim Card 2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears 3. Replace Sim Card 4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.
Also, Try this: 1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G. 2.) Start up iTunes 3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G 4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable 5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset. 6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

If you have tried doing a master reset on the phone, it sounds as if you are having a hardware problem with the phone, such as some sort of damage that might have come from a drop or something. By the way I can fix the iphone glass screens, and digitizers.
Perform the under given steps to troubleshoot the issue:
(i) Clean the iPhone screen with the cleaning cloth that came in the box with the iPhone.
(ii) If you have a protective plastic sheet or film on the touchscreen, try
removing it because it may be preventing the touchscreen from working
(iii) The current application may not be responding (frozen), press and hold
the Home button below the screen for at least 30 seconds, until the
application you were using quits.
(iv) If that doesn't work, turn the iPhone off and turn it on again. Press
and hold the Sleep/Wake button on the top of the iPhone for 30 seconds
until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and
hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
(v) If the iPhone did not turn off, reset the iPhone. Press and hold the
Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for a least 30
seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If the issue persists then service will be required.
