    I have a water damaged iphone 6. It was not working at first, I put it into isopropyl alcohol, and it is turning on now, logo is coming to screen and when I release the power button screen is going black, but the light is still on. If I push the button for a long time, screen is not going black, logo is always on screen and then phone is turning off. Is it dead?

    Here are the video links;

    Have you tried methods of drawing the moisture out besides the alcohol? Additionally you wanted pure alcohol used for electronic component cleaning, like greater than 90% pure, better than the drug store kind. Try putting the phone in a bag with silica gel packs (used in shipping and pharmacy) OR uncooked rice for a day or two, in order to draw out moisture. That being said it MAY be too late.

    @pkcable, after dropping to water phone was not used for a month, do you think it will still help to put in rice or gel? The alcohol i used was 99%.

    Well it couldn't hurt any to drop it in rice for 2 days, BUT you did use the right alcohol it sounds like. The damage may already be done.
