iPhone 4s LED light stays on all the time

My wife dropped her iPhone in the toilet. Since then, the camera flash stayed on real bright like a strong flashlight. I removed the battery and dried it in Desiccant for 3 days and light still stayed on. The flash turned off by itself but now the small LED light next to it stays on. What needs replaced to repair this? Or is there something like connectors that need cleaned? I read a lot of post where the White ones (This one is white) people were able to apply pressure to the back and turn it off. That didn't work for me. One guy said he slammed it on his desk and the light went out so I tried slamming it on the carpet and that didn't work either. I took it apart and don't see any obvious water damage but I am not sure where to look. The battery connector showed no signs of corrosion.

The iPhone Geeks took the back off and said there was water damage because a sticker had changed colors. I have read where people say they have never had their phone near water and the sticker changed colors and Apple refused to repair it. I know this one took a bath so I want to fix it. I would appreciate your help.

Thank you!

Harold, the first thing I strongly suggest is that you disassemble your iPhone. Use these guides to work on it. After you have it disassembled, clean all the parts with high grade isopropyl alcohol (90%+ would be perfect). You can follow this guide for the cleaning, it will work for your iPhone. Make sure that you clean all the connectors and cable ends as well. After the cleaning replace the battery and re-evaluate for any damage. It is of course entirely possible that you have some shorted component on the logic board, but unless you start somewhere, it will be just a guessing game.Hope this helps, good luck.

Thank you very much oldturkey03 from another old turkey. It is so hard even seeing those little screws. I am going to have to get a good magnifying glass and then try your suggestions. I will let you know what the result is. Thanks again
