    Logo flickers/shakes then switches to full black screen. Sound works, volume buttons work, touch screen works (during black screen and when its not black and just shaking but it's not still so I can't control what I touch), back button and manu button and home button works.

    It started on its own 4 days after I had dropped it in a little bit of water and was working fine after I dried it up but the fall was hard. Screen started shaking and I opened up the phone to see if anything came loose.

    I don't think it's a physical damage anymore since it everytime I have accidentally let it die it has given me that problem and I fixed it temporarily by inserting the battery in numerous times and restarting it.

    It starts out exactly as in the video link below and if I hold power button home button and volume down button a still screen comes up with the android green guy logo so it's not the screen that's messed up.

    Sounds like water damage to me - something's partially shorted along a carbonized path. But it could be a loose or broken connection too. It has to be opened to be diagnosed. (Not "back cover off opened" but "screws removed opened". By a technician who knows the phone, not by you.
