My samsung has water damage

i spilt a drink in my bag over my phone, i took the phone apart and left it in rice from a reasonable about of time, it wouldn't turn on so i left it in the heat and it eventually did turn on but the touchscreen wasn't working. Is there anything i can do to try and fix it, if not can it be fixed if so how much will it cost. thank you.

If there was sugar in the drink, the phone is probably pretty well gone. Sugar carbonizes and is a pretty good conductor, shorting everything. Letting it sit wet in the rice for hours just made it worse.

The case is still good - whether anything inside it is still good is doubtful. If you have insurance that covers water damage use it, repairing the phone will cost more than paying the insurance company for another phone.
