Infinite bootloop after water-drop repair
Hi, so I have an iPhone which has been dropped into water. It was’t working at all, so I fixed it by cleaning motherboard with isopropyl and changing battery with new one (as the old was dead).
When the battery came, I just briefly connected all things together so I can see if it will boot up. It did. I was happy, so I just assembled it all (didn’t put display back into chasis yet) and tried to boot it up now. I was really surprised when I found out that the iPhone was in infinite bootloop (apple logo for 5 sec, black screen for 5 sec, repeat).
I read on the internet there are way many things that can be wrong at this point, but if it was working disassembled just connected together, why is it not working now? I checked all connectors, cleaned it all with air, checked for any weird things with lens, but couldn’t notice anything.
I will try to get you a photo, but for now, can I ask if this is familiar to you in any way and do you have any suggestions on what I can try next? I am really dissapointed it didn’t work.
