    So I have a wireless charger and a samsung galaxy S6 I think
    It's the waterproof version with that funny clip on the charger port so I didn't want to have to find a pin or something to open it and got a wireless charger
    I put it on the charger face down and the light on the wireless charger starts flashing, but it doesn't charge, is it because of the waterproof back?

    What do I need to do to make it work?

    Welcome to Android Central! You typically place the phone's back on the wireless charger, not the screen. Have you tried that?

    I have, and nothing seems to happen, I searched around and I couldn't find anything on this matter.

    The light only starts flashing when I put it faced down on its screen, when I place it down on the back on the charger nothing happens.

    You said that you have a "Galaxy S6 I think." Can you clarify which exact phone you have?

    You don't have a case on, right? What brand of charger is it? Does the charger work fine on other devices?

    It'd be ideal if you could test the wireless charger on another device, to make sure it's functioning correctly.

    I have just tried it on another device and it came out with the same result, I think I might have a galaxy S5, rather than an S6, is there different makes of wireless charger pads I need?

    That's the issue. The S5 requires a wireless charging back cover. Galaxy S5 wireless charging | Android Central. Sorry, I should've noticed that you have the S5 instead of the S6!
