Hi all good SE users!
I bought a cheap K810i that was water damaged, so I bought this phone actually for DIY (Do It Yourself) aka "Learning by doing", but this solution were a bit hard, so I'm stuck.
I've used torx screwdriver to completely open the phone.
I've used hair dryer and WD-40 spray wich is good for electronic components like connectors etc.. to clear the damp and other burks...

After done all this things (used 3 hours totally), I reassembled the phone and inserted the battery.
The led light is giving me now a clear orange light.
I try to charge the phone, but no luck.
Try to use XS++ and Setool 2, but the phone won't connect or charge.
I couldn't luck to fix the water damage solutions and wonder what the orange light is?
Is it an idication for the IC is blown?
Any ideas what I can do to try to fix this by myself expect sending it to service centre?

Did you installed usbflash drivers?

did you see "found new hardware" when you first connect your phone with cable? (by pressing "c" button)

if not,
try to re clean cable connector. connector can easily removable.

clean entire phone board. try this:
wash phone board (not camera,LCD) with water and shampoo. then wash with water. then use hair drier.

make sure if your battery fully charged. or use another battery.
do not connect memory card or SIM when flash.

try and post.
