    I have an iPhone 4S that has been damaged by water a week ago .
    It was completely dried, I took it apart as well to make sure of that, I also removed the caps that are covering the chips on the motherboard and made sure they're dry as well.

    After reassembling it I started trying to power it up, and now it only works when plugged in to a charger.

    It also suffers from the following problems:
    - Stuck on "Searching" , therefore I cannot make any phone calls or whatsoever.
    - No WiFi & Bluetooth, the WiFi is grey and the Bluetooth won't start.
    - No IMEI in the About menu in settings, when typing *#06# in the phone application it won't display it either.
    - Speaker & Vibrator are both not working.
    - And as stated before, it works only when plugged , even though the phone claims that the battery is fully charged ( 100% )

    I'm here to ask if anyone here has been experiencing the same behavior, and if so what can be done to solve some of the issues.

    Thank you.

    P.S Those of you who are here to tell me to take it to an apple store, save your time.
    We don't have those in our country. :/

    What country did you originally purchase it at?
