iPhone 5 stuck on Boot Loop, any ideas to help?

Hello i have bought a water-damaged iphone 5. I soaked it in isopropyl alcohol and removed all corrosion. I had then re-assembled it and replaced the battery. The phone turned on and went onto lockscreen fine. About 10 mins later it turned off while i was charging it (charging port did work) and then contionusly kept going onto apple logo, then turning off again and then back to apple logo. It never passed the apple log. No i am stuck on this and do not know what to do.

P.s the phone oly sometimes turns on by power button and not on charge, usually has to be on charge to have boot loop/ turn on. hope u understnad

I hope someone can help.Mnay thanks in advance.

Look forward to hearing from somone.

Hello again! Before trying DFU mode i push down screen so that i could work home button and then plugged in cable. It TURNED ON?!?!? I was very pleased of cource so i thoight id turn it off and test the same process again and it worked gain, trued it agian and worked? it seems to turn on when i push down the bottom screen. I think it's because of the water damage going in the charging port and pushing it down seems to work? sounds stupid i know but works!!! i have now worked out the power button does not owrk either that why it needs cable to turn on. Thanks for your help, i will be replacing chargin port and powerbutton and should wok. if not ill come back to you!! cheers
