Long story short, i managed to get water in the phone on holiday, needless to say the phone didn't take kindly to that!
I have tried the usual stuff i.e. left it to dry out in rice for a few days (although im not convinced that actually does anything).
It did boot up for a bit eventually but the battery was on 2%, so i plugged it in to charge which to my amazement it did. However it got to about 25% and then within about second jumped up to 95%. Obviously my first thought is the battery is damaged as when you plug in a charger, all the phone does is boot loop (samsung galaxy screen...off...repeat).
So i have replaced the battery....still the same. My next thought is the USB charge board as i thought it may not be able to let enough power through to hold charge on the battery, so replaced the USB board....still the same.
I cant get it to boot into safe or download mode as it just boot loops.
What can i try next? or is it now beyond saving?
Appreciate your replies and any advise.
