    Does display anything?
    If it does display nothing the screen may have been damaged.
    If it displays things and the touch is unresponsive then the touch may be damaged.

    This was written for you in expectation :


    Sony about your bad luck.
    I hope you gave it a few days to dry.

    Take the battery out again.

    Still may be worth a few alcoholic baths. (The device, not you ... although...)

    Ask the author and site ambassador Rukbat for extra advice in the thread above.

    Not much to add. Letting the phone dry out concentrated the contaminants, causing a lot more damage than when they're wet. Putting the battery in a wet phone electrocutes it.

    If you're very lucky, soaking the phone in alcohol - but for about 30 minutes each bath, to dissolve the contaminants, swishing it every 5 minutes or so - may give you a working phone.
