Default How to open my G2??

My phone got water damaged, so I was wondering if there was some way to open the back cover underneath the battery so we can try to remove the moisture??

There are videos on youtube on how to take apart a g2, voids warranty of course, not that I think you are worried about that at this point

1 more question.. I got everything to work fine it looks like but for some reason, the screen color is very pale compared to usual. Any thoughts on fixing this?

Edit: Now when I tried to charge it, the screen just went black and nothing works anymore. I tried pressing the upper button and then swyped the unlock button and it worked because you could see the buttons light up, but the screen is still black. Any one know what is going on? Is my phone officially dead because of water damage?
