What parts are needed to repair water damaged phone?


My phone was only wiped with a damp tissue, not sure how it caused the damage. I started getting the phone is heating message and keeps turning off, even though the phone is cold. I checked the sim slot and the slip was red.

Can someone help me with what parts I need exactly to fix water damaged phone (the usual fix for many people ) , I've read about replacing the battery, but since it was just a wet tissue I doubt the battery was damaged. I would like to leave the battery as the last solution to try. Please refer me to other parts that I should replace before the battery.

And are all the A50 parts the same worldwide?

Help is needed, I would like to purchase them asap.


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@andf123 this error message is usually displayed when you have a bad battery. There are no standard parts that will fail since each water “exposure” is unique. You would have to disassemble your phone, clean all parts with something like 90%+ isopropyl alcohol. Check your motherboard for any obviously damaged/missing components. Then replace the battery, reassemble and re-evaluate. Most parts will fit but it will help if we know the exact model of your phone.

Thank you for your reply.

I understand, but I read that heat senser could be damaged. Since I already opened the phone and the battery, and surrounding area look clean, no dried water spots or any sign of water was present (I might be wrong), I'll try to check and clean the motherboard but I only have 70% alcohol, I doubt I can find any higher during these times.
