Don't let it sit for thirty days. It will corrode the metal contacts and then deposit the dissolved metals when it evaporates.
Instead, try this easy and cheap fix. Order some DRIERITE or beg a friend with access to a chemistry lab to get you some. It's a reusable desiccant used for pulling water out of mixtures. Heat up about a pound of it in a shallow pan until it's dry- the color indicating type will turn blue. Pour it into a Tupperware, the shallower the better. (More surface area.) Lay a bit of paper down atop it once the dust settles, while it's still quite warm. Then lay your phone atop the paper with the battery separate from the main phone. Seal the Tupperware.
Whenever the DRIERITE is near saturation (for the color indicating kind, it will turn pinkish grey) shuffle fresh grains from the bottom of the Tupperware to the top. Removing the phone and heating the DRIERITE in the original shallow pan and repeating all the steps helps, too. As it cools, it pulls moisture from the air inside the sealed Tupperware.
My LG Dare fell into a toilet and jammed in the pipe, took five solid minutes underwater to free it. The DRIERITE cleared it out in less than three days.

Unfortunately, this problem will get worse. Good rule of thumb is to take the cell battery out of the cell phone immediately after you remove it from the moisture. The phone should dry for 30 days before inserting the battery again. re inserting the battery to soon will cause major damage over time. what you are experiencing is LCD bleedover due to the water damage.

I replace my crack lg dare lcd screen but when i turned it on here is no picture

Hi, it sounds that the screen you replaced is either not placed to well or the screen is not too good.(damaged).

You can unscrew the phone and try to adjust it, and see if it will display,if it does not display,that means the screen is damaged.

Take care.

My LG Dare froze and is on the Verizon screen. It

try removing the battery (check for signs of water damage) and leaving it out for a while

if you put the battery back in, and there were no signs of water damage, and this continues, the best thing to do is to take it to a store because if it is under warranty they will replace it

please remember to download backup assistance to save your contacts going forward

LG Dare water damage

how long has your phone been in rice? 2 days? that is how long it is supposed to be in rice. you could try recharging the battery for how ever long it takes for it to load. but those phones are pretty delicate so unfortunately there is a good chance its gone.

LG Dare dropped in Pool

Just put it in a bag of rice for couple of weeks. The rice pulls all the water or wetness out of the phone. How do I know, Well I found a brand New Lg Dare phone in a puddle, put it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I took it out of the bag, put it together, turn it on. To my amazement it worked. Ran to store, bought a charger, and it has worked every day since.

You can buy a new water proof touch screen online and you will be able to go to a Verison store and have them install it for you. Also put the phone in a zip-lock bag full of uncooked rice for several weeks. Make sure the battery and phone are in the bag seperately.
