    Default Xperia Z1 screen turns completely negative

    Hey guys
    Day before yesterday, I went to the swimming pool and even though everything was firmly shut, some water got into the sim card and sd card slots, along with some condensation on both cameras.
    As a result, I kept everything in rice overnight and all the water went by the next morning. As I turned my screen on, a bluish tint spread across the whole thing, and started flickering while I was on the lock screen. I turned it off and later in the evening when I checked it, it was normal for a few seconds after which the same thing happened. It gradually worsened.
    As of now, the WHOLE screen is negative, and there is no option in the Accessibility section to reverse it, if that is the problem.
    Nothing else is wrong and I restored my phone to factory settings, with no change.
    Please help.

    I think that it's time to bring it to service.

    This JUST happened to me.

    It lasted about 2 weeks, and just cleared up yesterday. You'll need to wait this one out and wait for all the moisture to leave your phone which could take a long time. At least now you know this will fix itself!! Let me tell you, when I went through this I was having night sweats because I thought I was gonna have to buy a new phone. I'll probably still buy a Z3 compact, but at least I won't have to do it RIGHT NOW lol.

    I'll probably buy a Z3 Tablet with LTE when a white version becomes available and then send in my Z1 for a check up. I wonder how the warranty stacks up when I imported an International Z1....
