I will stress that if your phone was submerged in salt water make double certain that you do an exceptional job cleaning everything or the phone wont last long at all, here is the part you need,, but it could also be where this part plugs into your motherboard if it's corroded so I would double check and do a good cleaning with alcohol and a toothbrush, use these cleaning methods they are for an Iphone but it shows how to stop corrosion, Repairing iPhone Liquid Damage, here is a teardown guide also for your Gallaxy, good luck.

This could be a Hardware issue. However, let do a quick reset and see how this works out:

Go to Settings

Select Apps

Select All (Look for ALL on top menu or swipe to the right to get to ALL)

Select Google Services Framework and tap Clear Data.

Turn off (shut down) your device and turn it back on.

Test the phone to see if it will black out again.

Does the phone have any physical damages?
