    My screen also went black (after TWO months!)...had phone in my pocket walking on treadmill & it went black, but started flashing the picture on the screen occasionally, now it doesn't have anything but black all the time. At first, the screen also would go black when it would heat up with charging (home or car chargers). The only thing that would bring it back then was to allow it to cool, but even that doesn't work now...the warranty is covering a new phone, but I don't want to lose my pix & vids stored on the phone itself.

I unknowingly spilled water on my Nikon Coolpix L120.

One thing I've done, which might be too late for is submerge my electronic device (cell phone, remote controls, etc) in 99% rubbing alcohol. The logic behind it is, alcohol is non conductive so it wont create shorts, combines with water and evaporates faster than water.

I think at this point your best option is to find something to draw the moisture out of the camera. You need to remove the battery until this process is done as well. Rice (dry uncooked) does a decent job of absorbing moisture. Whatever the case is, you will have to get all the optics cleaned after its dried out.

My phone the sink

It might work again if you're able to open up anything that you can open up... and allow to sit in a warm, dry place for a few hours. If you're able, it might help in drying to remove the battery. As you're trying to dry it out, you might want to turn it so that the keys are down. Maybe some moisture will drop out of it. It's an "iffy" deal. Might work... or might not...

There is no way to fix it. Once the phone has liquid damage that affects the screen, you have to use your insurance to get a replacement (if you have insurance). Otherwise, you need a new phone.

Phone got wet and is now showing "DEMSBL BOOT Loader for MSM6288"

What you are seeing is the mode used to flash your phone. Why it is showing up IDK. You can get to this screen while holding down the volume down button on your phone while turning your phone on. Quite possible something is replicating this volume down key. Maybe play with your volume button and try to turn your phone on or hold the volume up when you turn your phone on and see if you can get by this.
