Thats helpful. Thank you. Mine was drained and switched off and when i charge it, it was making a vibration and showing a water drop sign with exclamation mark. My phone didn't touch any water. However, after i read this solution,  i can be able to switch it on with the power button and  immidiately connect the charger cable and it worked.

So I encountered this issue yesterday too.  I went to the store where I bought the phone and where I pay insurance.  They didnt know why it happened but in another post, I had read that wireless charging worked.  They tried this and it did work.

 I bought a wireless charger for $32 and was able to use and charge my phone.  24 hours later my wired port is working again.

Just bought a note 9, and every time the phone completely runs out of juice I get that, the only solution was to wirelessly charge above 10, then magically the USB would work., Now I see I'm not alone

Have you tried the shake and blow method? Blow into the port and shake the device. Also, have you tried another charger?

As of today, I too have this problem. 

My phone died while I was out with my family. At no point in time did it get wet at all. In fact it wasn’t humid outside eith. Just a perfect January day in FL.

 

I stopped at a convenience store to purchase a wire to charge my S9 in the car. Never before have I seen the yield,  water drop, or the not charging symbol come up on my phone. 

I guess I will have to wait until I get home to the wireless charger to see if the issue resolves itself, as it did for others.

You can restart it to then put the charger while it's trying to start

To be honest, your phone doesn't have to be in water to have water damage. Sweat, condensation, or even a mist can do havoc to your device
