Hey guys, dropped my note about 6 days. I was in the shower, and dropped it. I know, I know. I always do it though to listen to music, and it's always in a plastic bag. But on that day, I guess I didn't close the bag properly, and it feel out. The bathtub was drained though, it was a little water. It was still on and working(expect the volume kept going up and down on it's own). I took out the battery, dried it and turned it back on right away(Mistake number 2). Well, it didn't turn on. Now it's day 6.

What I've done so far:

1) Put it in a bag of rice

2) Took it apart and cleaned it with 99% alcohol.

3) Dried it with a heater

4) Let it sit for 2 days

Still nothing. I'm assuming that my board is fried, since I took the battery out, and it works in my brothers Note 2, but not in mine. It doesn't charge or anything. Is there any way for me to find a replacement board online? I tried etradesupply(I'm in Canada) but they don't have the PCB part(I think). And or anything else I can try?

Thanks.

Edit: Oh God. Let me guess, the most expensive part about the smartphone is the mainboard itself...FML. Alternatives to try? :/
