    hey guys, some assistance if possible please, i have an s3, sunday realized the phone just cut off and wont come back on, tried charging and still didnt come on nor show any red light or anything. i opened it up and realized it got wet because i lent a friend for some hours the day before anyways upon opening it up i saw moisture damage, i cleaned it off with rubbing alcohol and a soft tooth brush and left it in rice overnight, today i tried to power it up, when i inserted the battery and pressed the power button it didnt come on, tried another battery, same problem, plugged in the charger and the battery symbol came up showing its charging but if i press the power bottom for it to come on nothing happens, what could i do?

    Try letting it charge some more then unplug and try to turn it on, if not i would take it into your carrier and see what can be done.

    i allowed it to charge whole night, the charger symbol is fully green and says $100% but when i press the power button nothing happens, i strongly think the power button may be faulty now

    So i carried it to a tech and he pointed out the switch may be good but the part where it solders onto the board is damaged/missing, he told me if i got the schematics for it he may be able to jumper it, anybody know where i could get the schematics?
