Phone works, battery charges, makes sounds but blank screen

I accidentally put the phone in the washing machine. Everything is still working....except the screen. Is there any way that I can fix this myself without taking it to a specialist?

Before you take device to get a new screen there is a small but easy trick u can try before you part with your hard earned cash place the device in a plastic seal right bag with sillica the stuff they put in with new cameras or other electrical goods it's like a powder place phone with a bag of sillica in it for a couple of days say a week this will draw out any excess water in the device if this fails the screen is needing replacing but if it happens u should do this immediately not say weeks later or the screen gets eaten away inside ok hope it helps you or others good luck

The only was is to take the screen off and dry everything out and then put a new screen on but still may not work better getting it looked at by some one

The screen probably will have to be replaced. You are fortunate that the phone still works otherwise.

Try removing the phone's battery, then wash it out with water. Then put phone in a bag of white rice for a week. Then replace the battery.

Blank screen. Is there any instance that the phone was dropped or exposed to any form of liquid? If not I think there might be a problem with the phone's lcd that needs to be replaced.

Phone does not turn on all shown on screen is a still hour


Try removeing the battery for a minute, didn't you store your contacts on the simcard? no its unlikely to get the contacts back if the phone has a hardware issue.

Do you have warranty on it? do you get any start up sounds out from it so this could be a faulty screen?

Sounds like the charger's defective. Did it get dropped accidentally? Take both the phone and the charger back where you got it. They should fix the problem for you. Battery in the phone is probably dead and just needs charging.
