I dropped my samung pixon in the toilet but i think all the water is out but it doesnt turn on

DO NOT try to turn it on and DO NOT use a hari dryer (it'll push moisture into unreachable places) Put your phone in a bag of rice and leave it there for a day or 2 (rice absorbs moisture) Try turning it on again... If this doesnt work , nothing will !
Please leave me a rating if I've helped you :)

My samsung rant wont charge. it charged yesterday but today after plugging it into the charger the Samsung name lights up and then it says "low battery please charge" but it wont charge, i did drop it in...

Phone not charging.
Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

Got water damage and wont turn on

I dropped my phone in the toilet and surprisingly it still works. First I took the battery off and dried the phone and battery as much as I could. Then I took my blow dryer and a towel where I folded the towel in half and positioned the phone and the blow dryer under the towel and left it going for about an hour. The next day I took the phone and sat it in the sun until the inside moisture was gone. Then I charged it my phone has been working fine ever since and that was nearly two months ago.

Wet phone

yes in some cases. but since you switch on your phone without completely drying it out, some problems may arise... like, auto-shut off, no signal, no ringtone, not chraging and even worse, it might die... in cases like wet phones.. it should be dried out completely to avoid shortages on the electronic components. but anyway... try cleaning it with laquer thinner for a minute or two... this will remove the moist deposits that might have developed on the ic's..

I dropped it down the toilet now it just wont work.

There is a possibility of it working again but water damage does alot of damaging things to phones. The best solution is to take the battery out and don't use it or try to charge it for a few days. Let it completely dry out and it might work but chances are slim. No matter what you hear or read do not place it in the oven, dry it with a hair dryer or even place it in rice. Those things will actually cause more damage to your phone.

Dropped in the toilet..any ideas on how to bring it back to life?

Hi there.... I have had many cell phones that have got wet and stopped working and every time I had to take out the battery and sim card, lay on side for at least 12 to 24 hours and they all came back to life. I don't think the freezer is the best idea.

That has always worked for me. Did you call customer/tech support for your carrier?
