My warranty is void because i dropped my phone in the tolet by accident. So I got it mainly working but the center "Okay" button won't work. any way i can get it working without it totally like malfunctioning. and how much would it cost to get a new one. i'm on MTS
You can always try taking it apart carefully and using Isopropyl Alcohol and a cotton swab to clean the button and connection. Let it completely dry and re-assemble. It works for game controllers dropped in the toilet and TV Remotes dropped in the bathtub. Besides, new Rumors™ are running upwards of $175, so you may as well try to fix it before you throw in the towel.

If you won't see anything on screen,check if the phone is booting or turning on,if it turns on,display is probably the problem.but if doesn't power?software problem is the main cause.and with this,need to replace LCD as well as touch screen that was damage too.
If your mobile has a warranty,you can bring it to the service center for spare parts replacement.If you try to open it and it's under warranty,this will void you warranty and unable to benefit free of service charge.
Pull the battery and put it back. Best bet is if you're within buyers remorse period get it replaced if your device was purchased new you should have 1 year manufacturer warranty that will cover frozen screen as long as no water damage or noticeable physical damage.
Really your only option is to get a different phone. Since there is water damage it voids your warranty so you would have to turn to insurance. If you don't have insurance you may be able to do an upgrade or you would have to buy one outright. If you can't do that than you can get a prepaid phone and put you sim in that and it will work.
It sounds like a problem with the wiring connections to the screen. LG's are really bad for poor quality connections with screens. You could pop it open and take a look at the connection between the screen and the motherboard to check to see if there is any visible damage, but its not really a user-friendly repair. With the cost of phones, in the long run, replacement is the best option (unless covered by warranty, in which case, opening the phone would void the warranty).
Short answer: No.
Long answer: Your phone has water damage. Warranty is void if your phone has water damage. Since you KNOW you've dropped it in tea, you should consider it a lost cause and move on.
For others - if you do something similar (dropped in water): Immediately turn it off. Take the battery out, then proceed to completely dismantle the whole phone. I have in the past used kleenex paper to tuck into places I can't dismantle, to get the water out, but they usually say to dismantle it, then let it completely air dry. It may take a week. If it, after it's completely dry, still works, then maybe you got lucky, and maybe it'll start acting up in a while, problem by problem as the electronics corrode inside the phone. I have heard of phones surviving water damage with only minor problems, but it's rare.
you don't need to actually drop your phone in water for there to be water damage.
simple things like having your phone in the rain, in the bathroom while you shower, around a hot tub, or possibly even if it's really humid outside can set this water damage sensor off.
it just gives phone companies more ways to void your warranty.
Well you know now that the warranty is void, so you should take the phone to a mobile service center and have them service it to try and have it working for you again......but most water/liuid damaged phones are like a 50/50 chance of working again.
