Sony Xperia XA1 stays in logo after boot after drop on water



My Xperia fell on the water recently and I do not know what to do. It's been two days. I have it in rice and I've tried to dry it with my hair dryer to see if it can turn on again. I plugged the carger today and it was loading normally until it started turning on but then it got stuck in a white screen with the SONY logo.


What can I do?

I'm sorry to hear that but you've done everything you can to save your phone, although the hair dryer might not be a wise move; you could contact Sony to get it inspected but it seems that you'll need a new phone.


One last thing you could try is: if the phone does charge and a computer recognize the phone, you could try Xperia Companion but it's a long shot.
