Dried water damaged phone connecting to iTunes, but not turning on?

I've tried replacing the battery and the screen - it connects to iTunes (intermittently) and I managed to restore it, but it just won't turn on with whatever screen I use.

What can I do to resolve this?

Is it worth bathing it in 99.9% isopropanol?

Also what's the best way to bathe it in isopropanol? Can I just put it in a trayfull of the liquid and brush it with a tooth brush and leave it to soak?


Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

it does seem as if you have a logic board problem

yes you can bath it in isopropanol I would not let it sit too long

brushing it is ok but be careful not to damage it further

I can probably send you a schematic if you want?

If your phone still reacts with your computer and youve changed the lcd already and still no display. then its prob the LCD connector on the logic board.

Theres prob a short circuit on your logic board thats lead to the digitizer connector.
