Hi and Welcome to! My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.
I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly

What is the model of your phone?

Samsung Galaxy A20e
Expert:  Ashik replied 19 days ago.

The moisture detected indicates that the charging port is wet or sensors detected moisture. You can soft reset or force reboot it. Press and hold down the Power button and Volume Down button at the same time for 10-20 seconds or until it shows the Samsung logo. This will force reboot it.

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.

Also, if you get an offer for a secure remote for an additional amount, please ignore it as it is an automatic offer from this site and not applicable to this question.

if moisture is detected can it be turned back on.
Expert:  Ashik replied 19 days ago.

The moisture is in the port, so when it is detected, don't charge it. Clean the charging port using a tissue or a piece of cloth (with the help of a toothpick or paper clip). Then you can turn it on.

Remember, if there was water damage, then DO NOT turn on the phone
