Depending on the rain most likely it has suffered water damage. depending on how long it has been since it was left in the rain will depend on if you can get it back to life. Tr to put the phone in a zip lock bag with some rice. let it sit for 24 hours. If there is any moisture left the rice will draw it out. however if it's been a while the water damage may be fatal. If you do get the red blinking light on the top, there still may be hope. There is a way to attempt to reload the OS.

Left phone in rain for 20 min. Very little moisture in phone and water marks untouched, but touch screen non responsive. Hard reset had no effect.

A phone in the rain for 20 mins is way more than enough time for it to get water inside. There still may be hope, but odds are against it. Turn it off now and take the battery out. Get a hair dryer and blow dry it for about 20 or 30 minutes. Don't over heat it, but keep it consistently hot the whole time. Let it cool and try it again. There is normally a white dot somewhere under the battery. If that dot has turned red, you definitely have water damage that voids any warranty you may have had. Good luck with the dryer.

I would say it's done. With the battery in and the water, most likely it's shorted the device out. Applying AC now could be a fire hazard, you could have a complete melt down.

Water damaged ride on thomas the tank engine.

first of all check for at least 12 volts from the battery and the charger, you can test this using a multimeter, if the battery doesn't show any volts, lift up one side of the blue plastic housing on the top and verify that both the positive and negative wires are plugged in

Yes, yes, and no, and I don't know. You could have blown a fuse, but it seems it would be showing other symptoms if you did. THe age of the battery is a good indication of condition, over one year old, suspect, over 2 years old, definitely could be in need of replacement. Check the water in the battery and fill it to the level with bottled water, or rain water, no minerals, then get one of those floaty ball testers and check the electrolyte fluid weight, One dead cell, the battery is shot. Could have been not enough time to charge it back it up. A battery charger needs to run all night. So, check it out, hope this helps.

The charging light remains red and never show green. Even when left for days to charge, it will say 83o/o left every day and i don`t no what the cause is.

Either the charger is damage or the battery is damaged and need replacement of any one of it.

But try to borrow first the charger if you have a friend and check if it is charging?

Check the water damage indicators on the phone and battery. They are white stickers, and they will turn red if they have gotten damp or wet. Be aware that some phones can get water damaged from condensation, or being in a moist environment like a bathroom.

If the damage indicators are clear, they cannot prove that it has damage and you should take it back and talk to someone else.

Verizon Voyager will not chage or work on battery, fine on AC

Sounds like the battery connections may be corroded, try gently cleaning them with a pencil eraser. Clean the connections on the battery and in the phone. Water damage is indicated by a red indicator in the phone. if it is red it indicates water damage which is probably why they will not replace it. If you have insurance on the phone that may be an option for you.
