Welcome to Fixya. The issue why the phone is dead is because when you connect the charger to the phone it causes short circuit. Water is a conductor of electricity so even you have tried to put it dry for 24 hours the main board of the cell phone is still grounded. If the phone is dead you can try to bring it to a service center just to check if what parts are still usable and what parts are need to be replaced.
Thanks for using Fixya.

    There's no way you can do about it. It's an electrical damage. This is a hardware issue and can only be fix by replacing the faulty part. Even if it took a minute to charge you let the electricity to flow to a grounded board of the cellphone.

    It will depends on the damage that's why the best thing to do is to bring it to a service center to have it checked for non usable and usable parts. The battery will be fine. If you did not put the charger perhaps the damage is only the display then it would cost you less for repair.

My kids spilled bubbles on my phone now it wont read my swipe to unlock it

The best thing to get all the moisture out is take white rice put in a ziplock and set phone in it. The rice will pull out the dampness. Really according to how wet on time, at least 24 to 72 hours!

Samsung facinate galaxy s phone went in the pool

Sorry your phone took a dip. First thing that you do is use a hair dryer on low heat. ( be careful to not have hair dryer to close, back it off about 12 inches) Do this for a few minutes and see if that does the trick. Also, a lot of times most the problem is in the battery getting wet. So take out battery and dry it good. That is step one. No, your not finished. Step two. Now that you have done the best you can manually by using a hair dryer, now get yourself some white rice ( like minute rice) and put some rice in a sandwich baggy, enough to submerge the phone and battery into the bag. What this does, is as the phone is in the bag of rice, it will draw out the moisture out over a period of time. How Long>>? most case within 48 hours. Make sure that the phone is completely submerged. Then after you feel that it has been a good amount of time, then put phone back together, install battery. Are we done yet??? NO.... Now you want to fully charge phone, because it looses its memory of battery storage, when it is wet, So then when its put all together with battery in, and fully charged, Then your in business. I really hope this has helped you, and feel free to respond if any other questions. Now, if this does not do it, unfortunately, most likely it will have to be replaced. Thank You So Much, Mr Bill

Coffee got on phone.I took battery out right away,put everything in rice.After 24 hours put battery back in .no picture or anything on screen,but i was able to make calls,i then put the phone on charger...

when a phone is liquid damage especially salt water, coffee and soft drinks then very likely it will not work properly especially the screen as the liquid sips through the edges of the screen

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.

Remove the battery cover, battery, and back cover casing as soon as possible, then put the phone in a small holes bag(the type you put in the washing machine that holds the tablets), then put phone in a jar of uncooked rice, ensuring phone is submerged in the rice, and leave for 48 hours. the rice will extract all moisture from the handset.

Welcome to the forums btw !

As to the charging point, these can be replaced quite easiy, otherwise Service point can do it. __________________

My phone fell in the toilet and now all of my buttons do the wrong function

Take your battery out, and put your phone in a bowl of rice right away when this happens. The rice soaks up all that water. Leave in rice for about 24 hours. Never turn it on and start using it right after the liquid, because it is electronic it will more than likely act strange or stop working altogether.

Washed my samsung wafer cell phone. will replacing battery make it work again

Most likely you will need to do more than that, as there will be condensation and moisture trapped inside your phone. Moisture + electronic circuits = bad news. Try this... it sounds really wacky but it often works: put your phone in a box full of uncooked rice, completely covering the phone on all sides. Leave it in the rice for a good 12-24 hours. Rice wicks away the moisture inside sensitive electronics. After 12-24 hours, turn it on and see what happens. Good luck!
