iPhone 4 wont charge after battery/dock connector replacement
My helpful 2yr old twins washed my iphone for me 6 months ago. I think they were trying to make up for flushing one down the toilet earlier this year.
Depressed, i tossed it in the rice and bought another phone. Of course i was dumb enough to try and charge it and turn it on fully waterlogged.
Fast forward to now--i discover iFixit--time for resurrection!
I have replaced battery (3x) and dock connector. Phone works great --using it to make this post!
EXCEPT it will not charge. at all.
I have cleaned logic board with isopropanol (1x) and saw corrosion/black marks under heat shield at charging section.
What is my next step? (Besides turning off all water fixtures in my house until the twins are 14)
I just know you smart folks can help me
UPDATE April 8 2015
I FIXED IT!
This was a long time coming.
I had to learn microsoldering, start a new career, and practice it for a few years, but tonight, I replaced the PMIC, the Skyworks baseband chip, the charging coil and few corroded caps to solve this phone. It boots and charges. I wrote a blog post about this--
what a milestone!
Is this a good question?
