Blue Screen Boot Loop

An iPhone 5s came to me with water damage and after cleaning it and putting it back together it boots to a blue screen and the restarts and appears to be in a never ending boot loop. I checked for damage under the screws with a microscope but everything looks normal. Any Ideas?

Thank You!

After fiddling with it for some time I finally got it to boot into recovery mode. I restored the phone and it works fine now.

Everything always look good after water damage. What's damages the phone is not actually water itself but the chemicals. Can you take picture of blue screen for accuracy of my diogness.

I just added 2 photos to show what the phone does when it tries to boot. Apple logo for a little more than 1 min and then blue screen for a couple seconds. Shuts down and tries again.
