    wondered if any could help I have a google nexus 5 on contract and dropped it in the toilet over a week ago literally was in there for all of 1 second as i dunked my hand in lol. However, it does work and turn on but i made the error of plugging it straight into a charger 10 mins after it happened. It charges at a rate of about 20% every 2 hours and when i use it as in the back light on it goes down about 2% every minute its so frustrating ive opened it all up and th eonly water corrision on it is on the lcd connector it seems according to a dissembley youtube video. I bought a new battery thinking it would help but it is doing exactly the same. Also bought a replacement charger still not helping. Another thing when the back light is on even on the dullest brightness and using the phone it heats up so so quick down at the bottom near the home screen button very hot to touch actually burnt my cheek when i made a 1 minute call the other day. Any ideas as to what will fix this or wat replacement part i would need. I did have in mind that it might be the usb flex charger ribbon. Can anyone shed any light and has anybody has this issue before. Thanks guys

    It's probably too late, but did you try the "Put the parts in a bag of dry rice" trick?

    You'll have to excuse me but are you certain that all the water had been got out of the phone? The overheating could be caused by corrosion I guess but couldn't it be caused by traces of water still inside? I'm saying it might be a hood idea to leave it in dry rice for a few days to be sure, it will cost nothing and if it's still bad you will at least have discounted one possibility.

    I did try the rice trick for 3-4 hours the day after. I have had the phone completely apart and couldnt see any water. The heat is coming from the down near the home screen and is exteremly hot i am guessing ive done something by putting it straight on charge after dropping it in the toilet. Do you know much about the flex ribbon that connects the battery...as it is down in the area of where the heat is coming from. I dont really want to fork out for one as ive just bought a new battery but in hindsight dont trust the phone shop i went into as they said starts at £50 and could take up to 6 days eek
