Default camera doesnt work after phone was dropped in water

So i've had my htc sensation for about 6 months now and i just recently dropped my phone in the water. It was only under for maybe 2 seconds. It didnt shut off right away but i took it apart and put a blow dryer to it right away and completely dried every crack and crevis and then took all the peices and put it in a bag of rice over night.....well it WORKS! and has been working perfectly up until now,....

i noticed my camera doesnt work anymore. When i go to open it up it just gives me a black screen. I tried downloading another camera from the market and nothing works. I found a replacement camera part on ebay but i dont wanna buy anything until i know what i need to replace to get my camera working again....What sucks the most is the camera is what makes this phone so great with 8MP! ugh!

Please help!

i dont think the hair dryer was a good idea.

it could be any number of parts that have failed from the camera to main board.

is it not worth sending to htc for a diagnostic. they will charge you for the repair because of the water damage. but i think i would sooner of had it done right and make sure nothing ese is going to go.
