Salt water on dock connector

My iPhone 5 got splashed with salt water.

It still works, but a message about compatible device keeps displaying, which leads me to believe that salt water got on the dock connector.

I powered it down. Any suggestions on what to do next?

My wife suggested swabbing the inside dock connector with rubbing alcohol. Would that work?

it would defiantly help, it sounds like the contacts are getting shorted out, i would recommend a higher percent alcohol like isopropyl witch is 99% + alcohol, drys better as it has less water than standard rubbing alcohol, if that doesn't fix it you could try a new charger port

swap it quick, the sooner the better... make sure it's dry when you plug it in.

no problem. don't wait to long, salt water damages the copper pins...

Thanks, I swabbed the contacts with denatured alcohol and put it back into the bag of rice. I'll give it a try tonight to see how it runs after 48 hours of being in rice. I'll also open it up to see where there might be salt damage if salt water got inside beyond the contacts.

Don't waste your time by putting it in rice. That doesn't really help.... you could open it up to check for damage. But i would already try if it works..
