My Nexus 5 is water damaged. I've opened it and there was some droplets in the motherboards. I've dried it of, dismantled everything and left all the parts on rice for a week.

Today I've assembled it and tried to turn on but no luck. When connected to the charger the red light blips, and the back gets hot (on the motherboard area).

I'm looking to buy a new motherboard. I've looked in but they don't sell it:

Where else can I look for parts? On eBay Nexus 5s with only cracked screens are still pretty expensive...

It would best to buy a new phone as you don't know if other parts of the phone might damaged as well and not only the motherboard.
