iPhone 5s cameras not working

None of the cameras seem to work, both showing a black screen. Hard reset, iOS update or replacing the cameras with the new ones didn't help the case aswell. The indicators inside the phone shows that it is indeed water damaged. All the other functions works flawlessly. Anything else i can try out in order to fixing these? Thanks alot!

I suspect corrosion / liquid damage near the camera ic area. Cleaning the board properly with 99% isophryl alcohol may get it working again.

Camera Lover, Maybe recheck your installation and if water damaged reclean all Ribbon cable connections/ board and cable for rear camera with soft bristle tooth brush and high concentration isopropyl alcohol at least 90% and dry with compressed can air. Reconnect cables/plugs securely and assemble.

Have you tried a iOS software restore using via iTunes and setting up as a NEW iPhone, nothing backed up?

You'll want to reinstall a new camera and do a hard rest after the new camera is installed.
