My phone screen is unresponsive after water damage, can this be fixed?
So i've had this model of phone for a couple of months now and for the second time it has been damaged by water. (This is the second model as the first one also had water damage and was not repairable). It was not completely submerged and was in the water for less than a second but water still managed to get inside. I took everything out, dried it, used rice and restarted it a few times and the phone still manages to turn on and function almost normally. However, my screen is unresponsive despite the phone still working. It has never been dropped, scratched or anything else but i have files on there that i need and i'd rather not get a completely new model again as my make of phone is no longer available near me.
Also, the screen was bright red and blurry the first time i turned it on after i had dried it. Just over 24 hours later (now) it's fine apart from the screen issue. So what i'd like to know is:
What could the problem be?
Can it be fixed?
If not, how can i transfer files from one phone to another if the touch screen is unresponsive?
Thank you, any information would be appreciated.
Questa è una buona domanda?

@wahabali You will have much better luck getting help if you start your own question with information on the device you're having problems with and a good description of what's wrong.
