I am very pleased if this actually works for anyone sadly I have tried all the possible fixes on here and none of them work.

gaplayer's fix worked a second time. So even when my phone started playing up again, I re-ran the fix and it re-fixed.

 

Now there's a new firmware / software release - this may help as well?

 

Gaplayer's fix below for those that need:

 

THE FIX - FOR ME AT LEAST:

 

 -   Open the dialler and type *#0808# (it's normally *#2873# on other Samsung mobiles but it did not open the USBSettings app at all).

 -   As soon as you press the last '#', the USBSettings menu will appear with several bullet-point style options:

                                MTP

                                PTP

                                RNDIS+DM+MODEM

                                RMNET+DM+MODEM

                                RMNET+DM+MODEM+ADPL

                               

 -  I selected the last option, pressed 'Apply', exited, confirmed the setting stayed the same, pressed 'Apply' again and then pressed the 'REBOOT' button.

I've searched the whole Internet to find solution for this issue. Then I tried gaplayer27's solution above, but unfortunately it did NOT work for me. However I found a possible solution on this page under a Samsung S9 problem that worked for my A70 too. The steps are the following:

 

Go to Settings

Swipe down, press About phone

Press Software information

Then press Build number constanty to enter Developer mode

After this in Settings Developer options will appear right under About phone

Press Developer options

Searh for Default USB configuration, press it

Press Charge phone only

 

This work for me as well, so I hope it will work for you guys too.
