S8 Screen Keeps Blacking Out

Problem: HI, i have a samsung s8 – the screen keeps blacking out. I reboot and it comes back on but then blacks out within minutes. What can i do? can still hear the phone ring and notifications but can do anything to answer or respond – only reboot and start again. any help much appreciated thanks

Solution: If you are able to backup your phone data I suggest you do it before we do some troubleshooting. Try using Smart Switch to backup your phone data. Once the data has been backed up you should start the phone in recovery mode. If the screen works in this mode then proceed with a factory reset. After the reset restart your phone.

In case the above steps fails to fix the problem then the problem is most likely caused by a faulty display assembly. If this is the case then I suggest that you bring this to a service center and have it checked.

S8 Not Charging Moisture Detected Error

Problem: Hi I have my samsung galaxy s8 for just a month although my phone wont charge. I tried to see if it is the cable that broke but no as after I reconnected the cable my samsung gave me a moisture warning and started vibrating. I took out my phone and dried it although now it doesn’t show anything. I tried rebooting it but it wont respond.

Solution: If you are getting a moisture detected error on your phone then it’s very likely that some moisture is present in the charging port. What you will want to do right now is to make sure that this port is dry. You can do this by placing the phone in a dry place for at least 2 hours to let the moisture naturally evaporate. You can also use a hair dryer to dry this port.

Once the port is dry try charging the phone. If it still does not charge then proceed with the troubleshooting steps listed below.

  • Clean the charging port of the phone using a can of compressed air. Make sure to remove any dirt or debris stuck in this port.
  • Try charging the phone for at least 20 minutes using a different charging cord and wall charger.
  • If the phone does not charge then try charging the phone from a computer USB port.
  • Turn on the phone.

If the above steps doesn’t fix the problem then you should bring the phone to a service center and have it checked.

Solution: You will usually get the moisture detected error if some moisture is present in the charging port of your phone. What you will want to do right now is to dry this port using a hair dryer.

If the error message persists then you will have to check if this is caused by a software glitch by doing a factory reset. Just make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset.

  1. I installed Smart Stay on the phone and the Samsung S8 keeps blacking out even if I am facing the screen. Turned it off but it doesn’t help. Does memory issues affect this? I am low on space. Thanks.
