Title:

After ribbon replacements, phone still not working

Text:

Ok, my brother dropped his phone in water. After getting heated as to why it wouldnt work, he basically ripped it apart tearing several ribbons. (heated  temper). He sent it to me to sell it for him, but I found this site first. I ended up replacing all the bad ribbons, and put everything back together piece by piece. Now that its all back together correctly, it still wont power on. Any tips?
