Dropped in water, replaced battery+charging port, still not charging.

So I have a second phone (Huawei p10 lite, but it was not on the list, anyway almost same with p9 lite) and I accidentaly dropped it in water. It kinda went dead for some days, so after 2 weeks of letting it dry, I boot it up and everything is fine, except it cannot charge.

I replaced both the battery and the usb charging port, but the phone still not charging. What else could it be? My chargers and cables work perfecty on other devices.

Hi @roneen ,

As you know water and electronics and electricity are not a good mix.

The water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the phone's operating design and could damage the components. The corrosion doesn't stop. It needs to be cleaned off properly

First do not turn on your phone and then you need to with the phone turned off, remove the battery as soon as possible from the phone to minimize further damage.

Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the phone and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+ (available from most pharmacies) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is <70% IPA, can contain scents and is not as effective. If you do check the label to verify the amount

Here is a link that describes the process.

Electronics Water Damage

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.

Here is a link to a Huawei P10 Lite dis-assembly video which may be of some help.

Hopefully after you have done all this the phone might possibly work correctly again.

If this process seems too daunting, take your phone to a reputable, professional phone repair service, experienced in water damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair.

If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.
