    Default Samsung Galaxy s4 Screen completely black but buttons light up

    Yesterday night I had too much to drink and threw up on my phone, I didn't intend to but I didn't realize something was wrong with the phone until I tried to use it this morning. It has flashes of green stripes run across the screen and then it remains black, though the buttons at the bottom light up. I don't know how to fix this nor if it's fixable.
    But when I did wake up this morning, it was okay other than it would be a little staticy green on the lock screen, and it kept telling me that eye scroll was on (even though I've never touched it) Then when I took out the battery to see if it would fix it, it just started black screening and giving be those green stripes.
    Anyone know how to fix this?

    I think the only fix to this is a new LCD screen.

    Welcome to Android Central! Yeah, I'd guess that if the phone was soaked in acidic gastric juices, that wouldn't be good for the internals. I agree, you probably need to get the screen replaced. That still might not fix everything, if parts of the motherboard were damaged as well.
