I dropped my HTC one M8 in the toilet (water was clean) and I immediately grabbed it out and dried it off with a towel. After drying it, the device seemed to be functioning fine so I continued to just text people and go about my daily routine and then my screen started going crazy and now it is unresponsive when I touch it. After this happened I took out the SIM/micro SD card and stuck everything in a bag of rice.

At this point it's not looking too good for the phone so I tried to make a backup of it before I put it back in the rice but since I have a pass code on it, HTC Sync manager won't let me make a backup of my stuff because the touch screen is unresponsive so I cannot unlock my phone at all. Is there anyway to make a back up of the device? Any help is appreciated!

TL;DR
My phone screen doesn't work and I have a pass code on it and I can't make a back up of it without putting in the pass code. Help?


UPDATE:
My phone worked this morning when I pulled it out of the rice so I took the pass code off immediately this way I could potentially back it up but when I went to plug it in it kept dying on me. I eventually had to go to school but I figured I would charge it while I'm there. When I came home, it said it was still at 0% and when I would plug it in it would turn on at all. No matter how long I hold the power button the phone won't turn on.

You could always try purchasing a secondhand/cracked cheap HTC one M8 LCD screen from ebay, connect it to your phone/replace it and see if it is responsive. Alternative to dry rice is those little silica gel packets and see if they do better than the rice :smile:

I don't trust myself with trying to replacing the LCD screen, and I'll use the silica packet things. Thanks! Any suggestions on backing up my phone?

Maybe if there is a way to boot it into download mode you may be able to flash a rom that supports backing up of files, I'm not sure.

I can't flash a custom ROM because I don't have root access, my boot loader isn't unlocked, and I don't have a custom recovery. 
Updated OP with new information.
