Default Screen on Droid 2 is very, very dark--but everything is working?

My phone fell in the toilet the other day...I quickly took it off, took out the battery, and dried it off. It sat in rice for about 24 hours. I tried to turn it on after that, and everything seemed to be working, but the screen was veryyyy dim. When I squint and look closely, I can see everything, but it's far too dark to be a useful phone. I don't have insurance but I love this phone, so I'm desperate to find any way to fix it!

It likely needs to be replaced.

Have you checked brightness settings?

i did try changing the brightness, but it didn't do a thing.
what would i have to replace exactly? the phone, or just the backlight or something else? and does anyone know where i could get whatever it is i need?

I would suggest you replace the entire phone,
