sandra before charging the phone I would suggest cleaning the phone and not trying to turn it on . A water damaged phone can be saved if dealt with properly unless were dealing with a new Samsung that's water tight . If you have properly cleaned the phone and got it dried out(stay out of the rice its useless) I would always recommend replacing the battery . Water and lithium Ion batteries don't mix. They tend to swell and all kinds of bad things happen . If you let use know which Samsung phone you have and if you've cleaned the motherboard we can give you better info on what you should be doing. Hope this helps

Mine is a Samsung Galaxy A5, supposed to be water resistant. Dropped it in water and its now reading battery temperature too high. Its not self serviceable so I can't even open it to clean the motherboard.


this is just a safety feature on samsung phones it has detected moisture in the charging port. get some isopropyl alcohol and clean the charging port with a toothbrush.

Are you getting an error that is telling you this?

If so, the chances are that the battery is defective and giving you a false error.

I'd suggest a battery replacement, but with water damage it could be quite a far reaching problem.

Let me know if this helps.

Well, got that message after my Xiaomi redmi fell. I opened the phone and discovered a loose battery clip. Clipped it tight, turned on phone. Problem solved!
