My phone will charge when connected to a laptop but not to any charger

It will spam the moisture in the charging port sometimes or just not register the wall charger at all. But as soon as I plug it into my laptop while turned off it will charge just fine.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

There’s a chance that your media transfer only option is enabled. You should be able to swipe down from the top and see what method it’s using to connect via USB. Plug it into your computer and check, and change it to USB mode only if possible.

Hope this helps,
