The internals will be naff!! Not woryh much at all as the phone cannot be fixed i think?

Try to take it to Samsung and say that the screen has gone, just blag it!! :thumbsup:

If the phone works when on the charger, and you can make calls, then it is most likely only the battery itself that is damaged. Just replace this and all should be ok.

You are not being very specific here, you said the phones screen did come up when it was plugged in??
Do not try "blagging" it with samsung, most phones have a built in "water" damage indicator which will tell them at a glance so you could end up with a big bill for the inspection

Try looking on Ebay and find an LCD screen. It shouldn't be hard to replace.

well when i put it on charge(as u would when the phone is off), the phone charges as normal (battery logo with 1 bar then 2 then 3) after it is fully charged a message says fully charged. but i cant tun the phone on!(both when on charge and when not on charge)

ok but fraid i dont know the sammies that well will ask my m8 , a cpw bod but he's away till tomorrow.
I would imagine there are some phones that use the battery as the main source and therefore would fail to be able to do something requiring any considerable power such as feeding the cell radio whereas putting a simple lcd message up would require little power
With that in mind try taking the battery out and putting it on a multimeter see if there actually is any charge, if not you will need to beg/borrow/steal another to verify phones condition

Ring up samsung get it exchanged as its a fairly new phone.

dam it says for the person that purchased it originally only (i bought it on ebay) also the previous owner had tampered with the screws, but i was not botherd when i recieved it as the phone fully worked.

so looks like its gonna have to sit in the draw!

Try selling it on here? As you have got the bits and pices which are worth a few $$$$!!!

Better than sittin in your draw?
