Wet phone, works for 15 minutes

My wife dropped her iPhone in the toilet. Turned it off, cleaned it, and left it in rice. Next day we tried to turn it on with no results. Later on I tried holding the power and home button pressed and the phone booted. Everything worked perfectly except front camera, that would just show a black screen, and rear camera where focusing didn't work.

After about 15 minutes the phone turn itself off (like power loss, not like shutdown). Thought it was the battery and replaced it but the problem persists.

Any idea what it could be?

Thanks in advance!

Luis

Rice is the same as doing nothing---just letting time go by for corrosion to set in. Pass it on!

Water damage is really hit or miss, but the biggest factor is time, and not trying to turn it on.

If you grab that phone out of the toilet and rush it straight to the iPhone ED for some emergency disassembly and an immediate isopropanol bath----it will be fine 95%+ of the time. If you do nothing, or leave in rice--essentially same thing---for a few weeks, then the save rate drops to 50%. After a year outside, you can still save 5% of phones----it is hit or miss.

This phone may or may not be salvageable----for the iPhone 5, since most of its logic board is covered by soldered on EMI shields, you need to get it to a professional that will desolder the shields to do a full water damage cleaning (ask them, most won't).

Unfortunately leaving in rice you have done more harm than good if it was taken apart straight away and washed with 99% alcohol your phone would have been most likely ok but by leaving in rice corrosion has set in and god nos what damage it has caused..

Take phone apart clean it also get a new battery and fingers crossed it will work..

Rice is a myth btw

You will need to take the iPhone apart and clean the corrosion around the camera area first then replace the battery and try a new dock connector.
