Fix water damaged iPhone 4 without doing replacement.
I recently acquired a broken iPhone 4 from one of my friends, he mentioned it was damaged by water but didn't elaborate on what type of water damage and how long ago it happened. I took apart the back and noticed the insides were a bit rusted and there was a blueish tint to some of the parts as well. I would like to fix the phone or try to figure out what part I would need to replace to get the phone back up and running. I took it into a store and they said it couldn't be fixed...now I'm sure the whole phone isn't a waste, I just wanna know if I need to replace the battery, logic board, or the power connector part to get it to work.
I have tried to plug it into a computer but nothing shows up and it also doesn't hold a charge or light up.
Let me know if any of you experienced tinkers can help fix this phone, my last resort would be taking it in to swap out for $150. When I would rather learn how to fix it Thanks for your time reading and let me know if you have any other questions.

IT will probably be cheaper to just get it replaced. Not even to mention how much of your time it would take.

Yeah I figured it would be, but if its just the power connector or the battery I would like to give it a shot.
