Galaxy S4 wont boot past splash screen
I just bought a water damaged Galaxy S4 i337. The splash screen would show, then it would power off. I removed the battery, then put it back in, and the splash screen posts again, then powers off. I've replaced the dock connector board with no change. The screen is obviously functioning correctly, and the logic board is working to the point where it starts the boot process. I tried the Hard Reset by holding down the Up and Down Volume buttons, then also holding down the Power button. nothing happens. What am I missing???
I've had some luck fixing water damaged phones by soaking the logic board in isopropyl alcohol. It helps break up corrosion and remove any existing water. I may try this tonight, but if anyone has seen this issue before, please let me know if you were able to fix it. I would rather not soak the logic board if it is not needed.
