It's a small miracle the phone even powered up enough to vibrate after swimming in salt water. The problem with a phone getting dunked in salt water is that after saltwater dries, it leaves salt over everything. Salt will rust the metal components pretty quickly, especially the exposed metal like a USB plug.  Rice wouldn't fix anything because there's still salt in the phone. Your best bet is to follow @huilun02 's advice.  The purest alcohol you can find.  Submerge the phone completely and let it soak for a few minutes.  The alcohol will push out any water that might be trapped in the phone and push the salt out as well.  The alcohol then dries completely clean with no residue left.  Let it dry overnight and then try powering up or plugging it in.  Other than that, you unfortunately have a dead phone.

Salt water has most likely destroyed the phone entirely. Did you turn off the phone immediately when it got wet and let it dry for a couple days?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

The corrosion could be too small to see. Although, corrosion is not the only way for the phone to be damaged. The shorts created by the salt could easily create a lot of invisible damage.

Just now, my username got flaged said:

i just plug it in it  (has signs of charging it is getting hot)

The getting hot part is more indicative of a short-circuit.

Bring it someone like Louis Rosman if its an iPhone. Or another data-recovery centre.


But thats only if it wont turn on after drying. Any further work on it, like leaving the charger in to long will just make it harder to do the recovery.

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

can i take of the glass and the screen ?

I'm sure you could disassemble the phone, however, if you're not familiar with data recovery tactics, anything you do to the phone could result in making whatever data might be left on the phone even more inaccessible. I don't even try to recover data from phones anymore as they're not built to be disassembled and often don't have microSD cards for data storage anymore either. You're best to send it to a professional like Louis Rossmann to see what can be done.

No need to double quote/reply to me twice... as much as I love helping people with tech, people do have lives to attend to. As noted in my reply "I don't even try to recover data from phones" so I'm not the right person to ask about this. Even if someone on the internet had tips for you, any attempts to recover the data have the potential to make the situation worse, so keep in mind that you may end up doing more damage than good.

 

Phones running prior versions of Android used to let you access certain information using ADB over the command line, as long as you had already enabled USB debugging in the developer settings before you could no longer access the screen. Newer Android phones first require you to enter the lock screen PIN/password to then say "yes, I trust this computer" before you can do anything over USB for security reasons, even if you previously enabled USB debugging.

 

The only thing I can suggest would be to see if that particular model of phone will display screen output using an HDMI adapter like the one below. If it will, you may be able to connect a mouse & keyboard using a powered USB HUB if the touch functionality of the screen doesn't work. If touch functionality works and the phone can display something over an HDMI adapter, you might just be able to connect it to a TV then use the touch portion of the screen to do whatever you need to.

If you want to try cleaning the phone to get rid of problematic substances, flush it with 99% or higher grade alcohol/ethanol. And then let it dry and try to boot again.

 

If this don't work, its going to need repairs done by a professional.

 

Good luck

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.
