Hey guys hoping you could help me, I took my iPhone 5s on an around the world trip, and it suffered water damage, I had that sorted then 3 days later the screen just stopped working,more phone was still on as it vibrated when the mute switch was flipped. I took it to a repair man who got the screen going again but now it's stuck in a recovery loop, where it shows you the red iTunes symbol with a lightning connector underneath it.  So I plug it into my laptop and everything seems to be going to plan, iTunes says that the phone needs a restore and a reboot.  When I select yes, it extracts the software then on the phone it turns to the apple picture with the loading bar underneath it, then suddenly turns to a blue screen, then back to the black screen with the iTunes logo.  Any info on what this could be, or how I can fix it?
