I recently purchased a Curve 9360 (which was water damaged) off of a friend of mine. only problem is the screen doesn't work. I have replaced it, but nothing happens.
The keyboard and track pad light up as it normally would upon booting, and also the red LED comes on as normal. The only sign of water damage is on the battery. The other indicator is still white. from what i was told it was only slightly dropped in water (and not for a long time).
Any ideas on why this may have affected the screen? the phone works fine - can make calls, the phone rings and can hear when message are received etc. Could this be a software problem at all?

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. If this process has not yet been conducted, then please refer to this FAQ:
Do everything it says, including waiting the maximum recommended time. Applying power to your BB between it getting wet and doing this process reduces the chances of success.
