My blackberry's screen suddenly stopped working when mobile is slid up... Later, the next day, I tried unlocking it but touchscreen wasn't working AT ALL... I pressed the lock button to lock it & unlock it, then the screen wouldn't work in any way. The phone hasn't fallen anytime recently but it did fall into water & got repaired 3 months ago

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Anytime random strange behavior or sluggishness creeps in, the first thing to do is a battery pop reboot. With power ON, remove the back cover and pull out the battery. Wait about a minute then replace the battery and cover. Power up and wait patiently through the long reboot -- ~5 minutes. See if things have returned to good operation. Like all computing devices, BB's suffer from memory leaks and such...with a hard reboot being the best cure.
That said and given the prior water damage, the only thing predictable about moisture intrusion into a BB (indeed, any electronic device) is that the results will be unpredictable. I've seen some come back up right away and be fine. I've seen others never work at all. I've seen still others run for a bit, and then die later. And every thing in between.
