@billmk63 how did you resolve the water damage? What have you tried to fix it?


It happened a couple of months ago i got a replacement i was wondering because it powers on and looks fine that i could turn it into an iPod by bypassing the cellular,I will take it apart and try the cleaning.Thanks

Clean ever connection with a soft toothbrush. As well clean the logic board use a 99% isopropal alcohol for all cleaning. now is the time to start drying out the phone. Set the screen in a desiccant or silica gel leave it in for several day moving it from time to time to get the max effect from the desiccant . use a blow dryer on a low heat setting to dry the rest of the phone. replace the battery with a new one consider the old ones done. Clean again with isopropal alcohol let dry and when you think everything is clean and dry reassemble the phone (make sure to clean the contacts on the screen after removing from the desiccant). Once you've reassembled the phone its time to power it on. Hold your breath and hope for the best

Well, you should, take it apart and clean the logic board with 90 proof isopropyl alcohol. It's very possible that you can resolve these issues with replacing the parts that have been damaged
