Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Humidity detected - Fix cause

"Moisture Detected" is an unusual error that is not expected by the user on an IP68-rated smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy Note 20. But why is such an error message displayed when connecting the charger cable?

The most common reason for this is a wet or damp USB Type C port. But also a damaged charging socket, software errors or an error with the main board of the smartphone are possible.


Fix error message Recharge smartphone normally

The "moisture detection" error normally occurs when the charging port is wet or contains traces of liquid. This can happen after the unit has been exposed to water or liquid, or when the unit is used in a humid environment. Also during sports activities, sweat can cause moisture to enter the connector of the device and then the error is displayed.

To eliminate the error message, you must dry the connection. Water will evaporate naturally after some time, so you don't have to do anything but wait.

However, the evaporation process can be accelerated, for example by blowing or by using a hairdryer (lowest setting and cold air).

As soon as the charging port is free of water or moisture, the error should also disappear.

We hope that you were able to fix the "moisture detected" error on your Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
