Droid 4 screen doesn't come on
My wife dropped her Droid 4 in the toilet. Yeah I kind of chewed her out for it. To make matters worse, she thought she turned it off right after it happened but it never turned off. She put it in a rice bath while the phone was on.
Well the battery fried itself and would no longer charge up. So I chewed her out again lol. Went online and bought a new OEM battery which it just came today.
I installed it using a Torx T5 screwdriver and now the phone turns on, but nothing shows up on the display. I can push the screen and the phone vibrates so the touchscreen portion works.. just nothing comes on the screen.. it's blank.
I can reboot it and same thing happens.
Please tell me there's a mystery screen reboot function I'm missing. Or there's an easy way to replace the screen itself.
