Moisture in USB port constantly shows on Samsung s8.

Samsung s8 won't charge via USB as says moisture detected. Not been near water.

Re: Moisture in USB port constantly shows on Samsung s8.

This message can also appear if something conductive has bridged the contacts inside the socket. So it may be a good idea to gently clean the socket using a fine tip, dry and clean paint brush.

 

There is another possibility, are you taking part in the S8 Oreo beta programme? If so, turn off your S8 and leave alone for a few minutes. Plug in the charger. When charging starts leave for a minute or two then turn on.

Hi @SueyPooey

 

Welcome to the community.

 

Moisture ingress can be caused by exposure to condensation (for example, in a bathroom), or from contact with water.

 

The device should be left to air dry for a short time.
