I had the same problem with my HC30. i decided to go for broke and open it up to see if any of the connectors had come loose. i opened the lcd part and everything looked fine. that was actually the trickier part to get open (and back together). for the main body of the camera, there are several black and silver screws that need to come out (two hidden under the optional light slot). once the body was open i saw that all the cables seemed properly seated. i did, however, notice that a good amount of the silver backing from some tape had rubbed off on the cables from the lcd screen. i gently scraped that silver from the cables and covered the old tape with a piece of electrical tape. that did the trick. got it back together and all is good. lcd works like new.

Clay, it sounds like the digitizer might have went bad when it received water damage. Touch screens are usually 3 parts. The 1st part (the part you actually touch with your fingers) is the outer glass. The 2nd part is the actual LCD that brings you picture. The 3rd part is the digitizer which is plugged in with a small ribbon cable and allows the LCD to sense your touch. This problem is pretty common even without water damage. You can actually purchase a new digitizer on Ebay for between $10-12 with free shipping. Whether or not you decide to attempt the replacement yourself will depend on your background with this type of equipment. It isn't extremely hard but I only say that because this is my area of expertise. You most likely have several areas of expertise that would boggle my mind. If you are unsure at all about installing it yourself, contact someone in your area that you trust to do this. I hope this helps you! Don't forget to vote thumbs up if it does.
you need not remove only the battery, but the sim card as well.
torn the phone off, remove the batt., remove the sim card, wipe any dust off of sim and connectors, replace all, and power on. This should reset it for you.
If it does not, go to nokia.com for master reset code or contact Tmobile
