    A few weeks ago, I dropped my phone in the toilet, but was able to get it out rather quickly. The phone was only halfway submerged. I immediately disassembled my phone all the way down to the motherboard and used a hair dryer. Everything else still works perfectly when I turned it back on...EXCEPT for the speakers. At first, I thought I damaged the loudspeaker that is attached to the middle frame, so I bought a new middle frame with a new loudspeaker attached to it. I installed it to my phone and it still has the same problem. The weird thing is, I could use the headphone jack just fine. I could actually listen to music as long as I plug my headphones it, but not on the external speakers. I checked for corrosion on the motherboard but did not find any. I even tried to clean the motherboard with 99% alcohol solution but the speakers are still not working (it just gives cracking/static sound). What do you think could be wrong with it? Could it be a circuit problem? I've been on the Internet scouring through any solution to this but I couldn't find any. I hope anyone from here can help me. I just had my phone for only 3 months. Thank you for all of your advice.

    Water damage tends to be progressive. Did you use alcohol immediately to remove the water before disassembling and drying?
