How to repair my phone after accidental water soak?

After the accident. The phone does not work at all. No side lamps, no power up, not charging. Is it possible that a simple fuse change could be a solution?

Hi,

As you know liquids and electronics and electricity are not a good mix.

The liquid causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the phone's operating design and could damage the components. The corrosion process starts immediately and continues until it has been cleaned properly

First do not turn on your phone and then you need to remove the battery as soon as possible from the phone to minimize further damage.''

Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the phone and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+ to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is only 70% and is not as effective. If you do check the label to verify the amount

Here is a link that in general, describes the process.

Electronics Water Damage

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.

Hopefully after you have done all this the phone might possibly work correctly again.

Here is a link to the Ifixit's guide on how to repair your phone. This is helpful as it shows how to dis-assemble the phone so that you can clean it properly.

If this process seems too daunting, take your phone to a reputable, professional mobile phone repair service and ask for a quote for a repair.

If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.
