Re: " Moisture detected in usb slot" xperia xz2

Hi, I have a new XZ2 and this 'moisture' issue has blocked the USB autodetect and I cannot find a way of resolving it.   THere is no moisture in it and never has been


So, I can't use OTG and can't conenct it to a  PC/Laptop to browse.


I can charge and I can use teh headphones.


Hope Sony can advise on the USB autodetect issue.

Usb port

When I have my headphones in a message keeps popping up causing my music to stop saying the USB port has water in it. I'm sure it doesn't have water in it but this keeps happening so I can't play music. Is it the headphone jack thing that's broke or the phone??

Re: Moisture detected in usb slot xperia xz2

Hello everyone and I'm sorry to hear about this. Slightly frowning Face

@Meshach, does this only occur when using a wired headset and the included adapter, or is it the same when playing music through the speakers of your device?

If it only occurs when using the adapter and if you have the possibility, please try with a different adapter and see if you experience the same behaviour.

@Aldreth, when you see this pop-up message about moisture detected, is any accessory connected to the USB port, for example, a charger or a wired headset?

@anishmajoseph, did you manage to sort this out with a new adapter?

@Ellie85, thank you so much for this information.

If the included adapter is still not working correctly, I would recommend that you get in touch with a local service centre so they replace the adapter. If you don't know if there are any local service centres in your area, get in touch with your Local support team and they will assist you further.

@NeilWildy, could you try and connect the accessory that you are using together with the OTG adapter and then restart your device while it's still connected and see if there is any change?

@Andrew291, do you have another adapter at hand that you can try and connect to your device, or if one of your friends, family members or colleagues have one that you can connect to your device and see if you experience the same behaviour, that would be great.

@Yash_inani, when does this occur for you, is it when an accessory is connected to the USB port on your device, for example you are using a wired headset and the included adapter? Please do elaborate!

@Anirudh30981, do you experience the same behaviour? If you do, please let me know and I'll do my best to assist you.
