My phone goes black after water damage. However, The vibrations works.

Ok so here is the full scenario:

My phone (iPhone 6s) was with my mother. And she was in a hurry for work that she put her water bottle in her bag. What she didn’t know is that she left it open. My phone was inside her bag. It was cold water. So when I came back from school, I check if my phone was in good condition, When I checked it my phone it was black. The vibrations still work but the screen is not. Me and my mother were trying to fix this problem. However, we end up having dead ends. I decided if I can share this scenario, you can tell me answers. Please tell me some answers as my phone was just short lived. It only lasted for four months. Help me please…

@youngster10 for now you want to stop continuing to try to charge, sync or otherwise use your phone. This potentially can make a bad situation worse.This may further damage your phone.

The next thing to do is to clean it. Disassemble your phone using these guides . You must remove all EMI shields. If you do not remove those, you might as well not do anything. After you removed those, clean the whole board, connectors and all with +90% isopropyl alcohol. Follow this guide , and even so it was written for a 3G all the points are still pertinent to your phone. While you clean your board, check for any obvious damage, like burned or missing components etc. When it is properly cleaned, replace the battery. All these steps are to avoid delayed failure caused by corrosion. Best thing to do would be to clean it with an ultrasonic cleaner, but if you do not have access to one, this will at least help. Once all this is done, reassemble your phone and reevaluate. Until it is cleaned, everything will only be a guess. It is possible that you have a bad LCD and replacing the display assembly may fix it. Even with all this, water damage has only a small chance to be fully repaired, but at least you can give it a try.
