Hey forum! Long time lurker, first time poster here. I came across a very abused iPhone 4S which has been water damaged. I have a video i made of the device after i also replaced the charging port. Basically what happens is the phone keeps going into a charge cycle when it's plugged in (for lack of a better term). I see a lot of informed and experienced people on here and was wondering what you guys think.
Obviously, it's a little harder to narrow down the diagnosis without a working LCD. I'm expecting one to arrive tomorrow, but it doesn't look good. The phone is still recognized by itunes, which is a good sign.

Have you taken it apart and cleaned out all the corrosion?

Well, the charging sound "loop" was caused from not having a digitizer/LCD connected lol, I felt pretty stupid on that one. Even still, I wasn't able to get any life out of the display when a new one was installed, even after cleaning the corrosion.
