Water damage? Can't dfu?

So, I fixed a phone, with water damage, with a crest ultrasonic bath. It worked great. Sent it off with the customer. Customer came back the next day, saying it shuts off, when plugged in, I noticed it had the connect to iTunes logo. Tried dfu restore, got error 1671. Tried to dfu restore with a different cable, won't respond to anything now. Anybody got any ideas?

Could also be a bad battery if it shows no signs of life. It's good practice to always replace the iPhone battery once the phone has been liquid damaged.
