liquid repair problem! logic board working but phone is dead

I´m trying to repair a friend´s iPhone 4 that has been lying front down over night in a pool of beer with the charger plugged in. The dock connector had visible corrosion so I changed the whole dock with flex cable to a brand new. I cleaned out the logic board and got it running in my test phone. I also switched and checked the whole frond inc. lcd and digitizer and switched the battery. So, Logic board works fine, screen works fine, battery works fine but it wont start in the beer damaged chassis. Any sollution !?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi, since u have the test phone, did u try to swap other components other than the logic board, for example the battery?
