    Phone had mild detergent inside and has died.

    The phone was sat in a pool of mild detergent which has made its way inside. The green LED to the lower portion of the phone was showing when I noticed it. Now nothing. I have removed the SIM card and battery, wiped around and replaced. still nothing. Have just removed the six small screws to get deeper into the workings but am unsure what to do next without breaking anything. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Detergent? Hmm unfortunately it might done permanent damage. Water damage can be soaked up by using silica or rice. Detergent? Well I, think when it dries it gums up. Let it sit as is for awhile is all I can recommend and see if it boots after a few hours. Do you have insurance on it?

    If you can salvage it I would try rubbing alcohol. Don't dunk your whole device on it especially not the screen, The circuit boards are what needs the alcohol and it will actually take moisture away from it. Do not insert battery until it's completely dry.
