It is difficult to say, but you should definitely power off the Mini and you could try placing it in a bag of white rice to wick moisure out from behind the screen. I do not really know what else to tell you

If there is residue, and the alternative would be giving up on this display, you could try 'rinsing' its insides: Get some clean water that should not leave residues to run all through the display. But be aware, that's a desperate last try idea.
- Position the display vertically on some soaking tissue (dirty end down).
- On top, you put a source of de-ionized or at least distilled water: a roll of something drenched with it, or even better, create a small trough whose bottom is the side edge of the display out of some putty or wax. Fill it with with de-ionized or distilled water.
- Check for leaks, if the water only goes through the display and not along it, wait. Occasionally fill the trough/moisten the rool.
- Let it stand on blotting paper (newspaper paper is very good, too) to let the water *flow* out while drying. No hair dryer. Wait a week or so.
- Cry hooraay or feel certain that you have tried *everything* possible.
