water damaged iPhone 5 repair problem
I recently found out that my iPhone 5 has suffered water damage after it would not charge even though it was indicating that it was charging, in the end it just ran out of power and would not power up. I sent it off to have it looked at by apple and they diagnosed that it was water damaged. As I'm out of warranty and i still have 11 months on my contract i thought id have a go and attempt to fix it.
I have striped it down and cleaned all the connections on the mother bored with alcohol and re assembled it, left it for 5 and it powered up for 5 seconds, then died again. My question is, as it power'd up after the deep clean clearly i have sorted the main problem but why won't it hold a charge? Could it just be as simple as a new battery? Thanks
Is this a good question?
