iPhone turns off when unplugged, error 1611 on attempted restore

Received minor water damage 1+ months ago. Dried out, haven't had issues until a few days ago. All moisture sensors white.

A few days ago I unplugged my phone from the wall charger, it turned off instantly. I went into DFU mode and attempted a restore. I get the error message 1611 in iTunes. Did a lot of research, sounds like a hardware issues. I started with the battery since it's the cheapest and logical. Replaced the battery, same issue.

What is the next step? Replace the dock connector? Power and sensor cable?

Thank you :)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Sure sounds like a battery issue or charging circuity damage, Maybe the dock port just needs to be cleaned very well with isopropyll alcohol. But anyway, try a regular Recovery Mode Restore. With iTunes open, hold down Home button and connect iPhone to computer with USB cable. Keep holding Home button until iTunes recognises iPhone in Recovery Mode, then Restore the Firmware.

Thanks Brad, I've already tried this. I might just take it to a local professional.

Or even if the headphone/ dock connectors are tripped break out the scissors, paper, and glue stick. I would attempt to replace dock connector or at the bare minimum give it a good cleaning as it sounds like some corrosion is setting in.

All else fails warranty :)

If all of your liquid sensors are white still, you could take it to Apple and they will most likely still replace it, if it's still under warranty. I will leave you with the ethical dilemma, of whether you should or not, in your hands...
