@danield1497 since this is a water damaged camera it will most likely be an issue with the mother board. Check for any obvious components mossing or charred looking. There should at least be one fuse on the board.  Check that one for continuity. Remove the motherboard and clean it with some +90% isopropyl alcohol and a soft brush. Yes, you can submerge it in alcohol to clean it. Post some good images of your motherboard so we can see what you see and possibly find the failed part.
