How to get data from a powerless phone?

3 days ago, my phone was washed for about an hour. My phone will not turn on, but the charging light keeps blinking on and off when I plug it into my computer. I do not know if my battery is dead or the actaully phone broke.

How do I get my apps and pictures from the phone?

jacob de la rosa , Remove memory card if there is one. Quit charging/powering on device until you have treated for liquid damage as instructed in the guide below(1st link) Techniques for generalized water damage troubleshooting and recovery and 2nd link for dismantling your device to clean of liquid damage/corrosion. This may even get your phone up and running. You may have to consult a data recovery service. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Well if you pull the logic board and put it on a new phone it will work but clean the board first and all contacts or take the storage drive off of the board.
