If your (bad) luck is holding, low-level circuits have been damaged by current from elsewhere, especially if trying to connect since this uses circuits capable of much higher power than the low-level ICs were intended to deal with. 
Since it isn't working anyhow, try this:
Add a drop (not more) of dish detergent to a couple of quarts of warm distilled water - no product that has anything added to the water. Remove the battery from your phone, dunk it into the solution and swirl it a bit to ensure penetration of the solution.
Rinse it in distilled water only, shake out whatever you can without slamming against anything. Allow it to dry (battery compartment open) in any warm place such as a sunny railing, window sill, etc. for at least two days. 
I have used this method successfully on a number of electronic items with good success.  The most extreme incident was a word processor I serviced (many moons ago) belonging to an author who had weeks of work stored in the unit when his tom-cat decided it was a good place to urinate.
Good luck-

Samsung mobile sgh e840 fell into water

remove all possible [parts, battery, back cover, sim card, memory card and other things you can open using a special screw driver, let it dry several days or use a hair dryer on cool settings until determined everything is dry.

As for the battery, let is dry under the hot sun before attempting to put it back in the phone.

after that make a simple power on test, if it works, you are in luck, otherwise consider your phone completely water damaged and will not be accepted for repair due to the red water damage mark indicator.

Hello,today my E66 fell in water n got really dameged,i tried to fix its working properly but wen i insert charger my phone is not getting charged, its not charging, battery is ok,but i cannot fiqure out...

Hello there, usually when your mobile device falls in water the last thing you want to do is charge it. At least this should be the situation for about a week. This is so because even though the device might come on the insides are not completely dry and electricity mixing with water inside the mobile device is the last thing you want.
Although if after you are satisfied that the inside of the unit is dried you can try charging again and if it does not charge then your charging port is bad and would need to be replaced.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Network ICU is damaged due to water in NOKIA 3110c

I'm not sure what your question is..
However if it fell in water the ONLY thing you can do is IMMEDIATELY take the battery out and let it and the phone dry COMPLETELY.

Even that is not guaranteed to work, if you've done so or failed to do so and it is not working or working improperly the phone is useless. There is little anyone can do except replace it.

Sorry about your luck, if you had another question please post.
