    I recently jumped into water with my iPhone 5c in my pocket for about 20 seconds. After drying the phone for several days it would not power up. I cleaned the connections with 90% isopropyl alcohol and then replaced the battery.

    It now powers up but the LCD is non responsive and the screen has white lines going down it. I double tapped the home button and Siri worked and the sound was working. Top button is still functional. Is this simply a LCD problem and needs a replacement? Or is this internal?

    I have replaced several iPhone 4 and 4S screens but have not done an iPhone 5c though it seems much easier. I didn't want to buy a new LCD unless sure it was the problem. Here is what the phone looks like:

    The water got in your lcd and needs to be replaced. Make sure you order the whole front assembly for the 5c usually $50.
