Please help, why do i keep getting the white screen of death?

ok i have a blackberry curve mobile, i dropped it in a pint of lager new years eve. i have left it to dry for months. first time i turned it on i was getting the white screen and it kept happning. so i tried updating the software and it worked fine for about 3 minutes. so i just left phone for a couple of weeks tried updating software again. last night it stayed on without turning off or having the white screen, but i get up in the morning to check my phone click it then the white screen appears again. making me very angry, because the white screen doesnt come on if i have my phone connected to USB to pc it stays on. anyone know why this is happning?

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

With moisture intrusion into a BB, the only thing that is predictable is that the results will be unpredictable. All of your symptoms could be perfectly understandable given the lager-bath your BB received. I'd recommend a new device ASAP (and get regular backups of your data, of course).

Good luck!
