S3 Screen was getting horizontal lines(green at times) then after a few hours it is black
So, my daughter 14mo, likes to chew on my phone and I havent had issues with this, but this time I did. At first last night the touch wasnt responsive, but after some playing around and pulling out the battery a couple times we got it up. Initially it was a little slow, but finally started working as normal. Well except things looked fuzzy to me, but my wife says she couldnt tell. After an hour or so I woke it up and noticed a green horizontal line and a few others that came and went. The screen seemed dimmer and was clearly fuzzy more noticeable in the notification area. Powering it off and on you would see a lot of lines, then after another hour or so I did a reboot and the background of the Samsung logo was now blue when it is normally black and the verizon logo was having all kinds of lines including green. I put it aside and then tried to wake it up a couple hours later, I noticed the back around and settings buttons near the home key light up and I could see the blue notification light, but nothing displayed. I pulled the battery, heard the startup music, but same thing. Somehow I took a picture because the flash shot on and I heard the snapshot sound. I tried doing download mode without the device connected to a PC pressing Volume Up+Home+Power, nothing. I tried breaking it down hoping that I could dry it out if there was moisture or maybe reconnecting a cable, no luck. Any ideas, is the digitizer just shot? Some have said the sensors, but they seem fine, I believe these are the two little circles to the left of the front camera. Screen is not cracked and when I boot it up I cant see any image at any angle. I am guessing she bit it with some force as she has 8 teeth and can bite pretty hard. Thanks in advance, and no insurance I bought this for $180 from Craigslist to replace my lost phone, it has been great for the 7 months I have had it. Thanks for any help.
