    Droid Touchscreen not working. Solved, ty.

    Ok, I may be panicking a bit here, so forgive any lost details.

    My <1 month old droid was working perfectly, until, today, a glass of iced tea slipped out of my hand, and a small amount splashed onto my droid. When I say small, I mean like 10-20mL. Since then, there has been absolutely no response from the touchscreen. I've checked around, and, apparently, the little round window underneath the battery cover with the red Xs is water damage indicator, and it is has not been activated.

    It's not as though I dropped the thing in a pool of water; someone using their phone in the rain would have it exposed to far more water than mine was. This device cannot be that sensitive to moisture, or it would be completely unusable.

    Someone please tell me there's a simple solution to all of this and that I'm just overreacting.

    Pull out the battery, put it back in, turn it on.

    I've tried that, several times. I'll try again now, but is there anything else that can be done?

    When you say on the screen, do you mean that it seeped through the cracks?

    A bit, yes, but, I don't think that matters anymore. Apparently all that was needed was to leave the battery out for ~10 mins (which I did before my first post) and then reinsert it and restart the phone. It seems to be working now.

    Sorry for panicking a bit, lol.
