My Samsung galaxy Android device got water damage how and what do I need to fix it wont at all.completely dead. Cell phone brand is samsung 4

You need to draw out all the moisture before you try charging the phone. Placing the device in a container with dry uncooked rice for 24-48 hours will do this. A oven set at low temps can also do this but is way risky. (Trying to keep the phone about 150 degrees for thirty minutes) rice is the safer method

I recently jumped into a pool with my cell phone in my pocket (SAMSUNG Reality). I realized it 10 minues or so after. Dried the phone. A day later, the phone will turn on when connected to charger...

When phone gets wet NEVER try to turn it on. Take battery out right away shake water off and put both in bowl of rice for at least 24 hrs. If your not home or don't have rice right away take battery out and get some. We have a bowl of rice on the counter all summer long for those who jump in the pool with phone in their pocket. I have washed them dropped them in the toilet my son jumped in pool with his phone, put it rice for 24 hrs and we were up and running with the exception of the one in the pool, that one cost me new battery on Ebay ($4.95) but phone worked fine, didn't even lose contacts or pictures. But the key is to NOT try to turn it on after its been wet. Water and batteries don't mix.

My phone got rained on and now it will not turn on and the screen says T559 QSC6270 Downloader

If it was on while being rained on you may be too late.

To try and bring it back to life you can take the battery out and any memory cards, and put the entire phone in a container of isopropyl alchohol. Mix it around in the bath of alcohol for a few minutes to try and get it to flow into all of the internal electronics. Take it out of the bath, dry off the outside and let it air dry for 48 hours.

The basic rule is if it gets wet turn it off before the moisture reaches the internal electronics. I was able to use the above method to bring my brand new Blackberry Pearl back from the dead after walking into the pool with it in my pocket. It was on, at the time, which most likely means the moisture did not get through the seals, cracks, etc. into the internal circuitry before I took it out and got the battery out.

Another method, although it is difficult to achieve without damaging the phone permanently is to heat it in an oven to about 150F for an hour. The difficult part is that some ovens are not controllable at this low of a setting, Some phones/screens will survive this and some will not. It was done on two of my phones, one suffered some screen damage and the other was just fine.

LG Dare dropped in Pool

Just put it in a bag of rice for couple of weeks. The rice pulls all the water or wetness out of the phone. How do I know, Well I found a brand New Lg Dare phone in a puddle, put it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I took it out of the bag, put it together, turn it on. To my amazement it worked. Ran to store, bought a charger, and it has worked every day since.

Leave it in the rice for several days, if it still doesn't work then it's shot.

Water damage LG Shine

This may sound crazy, but it has worked for every phone me or my friends have had water damage to.
Take the phone apart as far as you can go (like take off the silver plate backing and take out the battery, and simcard) and place it on a dry rag and put it in the oven. Then heat the oven to its lowest setting. My oven can go as low as 175 degrees, so what I did was to open the top a little bit to let the heat out. Believe it or not, this heat shouldn't ruin the phone, but only dry up the water that is blocking the circuits. Be very careful though. The ideal temperature is about 125 degrees. 
Considering water boils at 212 degrees, it SHOULD take more heat than than to actually damage your phone. Leave it in the oven, turned off, for 24 hours or longer. Give it some time... be patient. Then try turning it back on. It has worked for me and my friends, as of now we are 5/5.
Good luck.
