Won't turn on while plugged in, just vibrates.

I had a water droplet warning when I tried to charge my phone yesterday, so I let it dry off all day and as a consequence the battery ran down. I tried to charge it overnight, no luck, and now when I try to charge it it just vibrates without turning on.

Before you suggest it, I've tried holding down the power button and volume down, and the power button and volume up. No luck either way.

Update (03/24/23)

It wasn't the screen, the phone just booted up with the debug menu.

Hi @plateoftoast.

The "water droplet warning" is of some concern. Just letting it dry out may not have been enough.

Check what colour the LDI (liquid damage indicator) is in the phone. If it is red then there is possible water damage to the components.

The impurities in the water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the phone's operating design and could damage the components. The corrosion starts immediately and is ongoing until it is completely cleaned away

If the LDI is red, do not try to charge or to turn on your phone and then remove the battery as soon as possible from the phone to minimize any further damage.

Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the phone and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 99%+ (available at electronics parts stores) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. If possible do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is only 70% IPA or less, can contain additives and is not as effective. If you do have to use it check the label to verify the amount of IPA. The higher the percentage of IPA the better

Here is a link that describes the process. Electronics Water Damage

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted pcb be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board. Remove the shields that may be covering some components as the water may have got in under there. The ends of any flex cables and their connectors need to be cleaned as well

Hopefully after you have done all this the phone might possibly work correctly again.

Here is video, that may help. At least enough to gain access to the internals of the phone so that you can see if there's anything amiss.

If you can't see anything then here's an image of the No Power On and Initial troubleshooting flowcharts from the service manual for the phone that may also help.

If this process seems too daunting, take your phone to a reputable, professional phone repair service, experienced in liquid damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair.
