    My Sony ericsson w580 grey went through the washing machine and its in about 8 pieces right now. The circuits under the screen are exposed but I put most if it together and the phone emits vibrations as soon as I press on. The vibrating wont stop.

Water and electrical devices, whether AC or DC do not mix very well.
The only thing you can do is take all the removable parts off, and dry them using a low heat hair dryer. Some bits and pieces can be changed, but it will end up costing you just as much as buying another phone, near enough anyway.
I would put it down to, a bit of bad history best forgotten and I would buy another phone. It might work OK after a while of leaving it in the sun, but in the end it all depends on how long the phone was in water.

The sound quality through the included stereo earbud headphones is superb and if you turn on the MegaBass boost feature in the Walkman player, the phone outputs full and powerful sound that booms. The W580i also has support for A2DP which allows the phone to play music via Bluetooth to stereo headphones. Like other Walkman phones, the W580i supports music files in the MP3/AAC/AAC+/e-AAC+) formats and you can rip music CDs using the included Disc2Phone software for Windows or using Sony Ericsson DVD Ripper for Mac.

More than likely you will need to replace the display screen. Those lines are a symptom of the LCD screen going bad. If you are still under warranty, see if you can get it replaced

If not, a new LCD screen runs about 15 dollars shipped from eBay and is pretty easy to replace.
