Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone
Okay...My phone got dropped in the toilet and I immediately took it out and removed the battery. I let it air dry for a couple of hours and when I put the battery back in the screen started messing up and then it would turn white. What should I do.?
SOURCE: Wet phone has black screen
You took all the right steps, including the rice. Unfortunately, even the rice method doesn't always catch the moisture before it does it's damage. The next step is to take the phone back to the store where you purchased it and have them see if it is salvageable. The other thing to check is where you stand with your contract. You may be able to replace the phone by extending your contract. good luck.

Most likely the screen display had a shortcut. You need to replace it, although it's not cheap. Expect to pay a little less than the full price of the phone.
Next time spend more time drying the phone, you can even use a bowl with rice to immerse the phone and leave it dry for one full day.
