    Welcome to Android Central
    Did your friend turn off the phone and take out the battery after it got wet? That should be done to limit the amount of damage done by the spill.
    Also, has he tried any other cables or chargers to make sure that isn't the issue?

    Well, after your brother spilled a glass of water on his galaxy tab have you dried up your phone completely by putting it inside the bag of silica gel or in the rice ??? If you did that then there might be some chances that your device ......... but as of now I will say the probability is very less I think the charging IC is damaged it would say either you get your device repaired or buy a universal mobile battery charger.

    Nope, he hasn't taken out the battery, his tablet doesn't have a removable battery from what I've been told and he's pretty sure it's not the charger either. He talked to samsung and he'll most likely have to get it repaired or replaced.
