Water Damaged. Camera continues to fail after being replaced?

S3 Fell in water. Dried out for a few days in rice. Continues to work but both cameras. Replaced both front facing and main camera. Front facing camera works only in 3rd party apps but not in camera app. And main camera continues to fail and close. Already factory reset, cleared data numerous times and still doesn't work. Suggestions?

have you hit the logic board with a bit of isopropyl alcohol?


Will try that, Thanks! Forgot to mention that it wasn't exactly water that it was dunked in. But a sanitation solution that we use at my work. I work in a kitchen. Don't know if that would make a difference but at this point I'll try anything!

As the other guy responded, buy some isopropyl alcohol and put a bit of it in a toothbrush. Scrub your mainboard wherever you see corrosion or any parts under suspect. This is a common water damage repair, the problems lies onto your mainboard that has corrosion on it.
