    Default Galaxy S3 dead screen

    My galaxy fell into water a few weeks ago. After doing all I could, the screen refused to come on. The phone still worked and I was able to view the screen through connecting to my TV via HDMI. The touchscreen worked but it just did not display anything. I ordered a new screen+digitizer+frame assembly. I replaced it but it still won't turn on. I have no idea what to do next.

    The water may have damaged more components. I would guess part of the motherboard has been damaged.
