"Charging paused. Voltage too high" error after updating Galaxy S2 to ICS.

I updated my S2 to ICS via Kies couple days ago. When I unplugged the charger this morning I was welcomed with the mentioned error notification. It keeps popping up every 30 secs and the battery icon is flashing. Extremely annoying and my Galaxy is unusable now. :mad:
I did some Googling and it looks like I am not the only one with this problem, and there's no way of getting it sorted.
What do I do now? I'm on 18 months plan, BTW.

Was it working fine after the update and then this suddenly happened? Have you tried a factory reset, or checking if there's an update as it might not have completed before?

It was working fine for a few days after updating until today. I just did factory reset and nothing has changed, the error is still there. No updates available for my phone.

The whole updating process went flawlessly few days ago, my phone was fully charged, no problems whatsoever

this is wierd....i have the exact same issue and like everyone else the problem ONLY started this morning. Must have been an update that caused the issue if everybody here is experiencing the same issue. Ive just factory reset mine aswell and i think the problem is still there not sure though. If it is, its going back

I had the same problem too but only when I used my car charger. Normal charger is fine.

Okay, there are two choices here as long as you're still covered by the warranty. You can bring the phone to a Three store to be sent away for a repair, or you can go directly to Fonemenders if that's handier for you.

In the meantime I'll check if this is a widespread issue with the S2.

I got my phone fixed today. I went to Fonemenders in Sandyford, excellent service there BTW, can't recommend them highly enough. They replaced the usb port and my phone is as good as new. :D

Thanks for your support, Sheena.

Is this the solution to the problem for everyone else or are there still problems? How can everyones usb ports gone wrong after a software update?

This problem is widespread with users who have flashed to ICS. It is a Samsung issue not a Three or Fonemenders issue.

It is possible that ICS is more sensitive to 'shorting' than previous OS's were. One plausible solution is to get a can of compressed air and blast the USB port :)

Don't flash a Galaxy to ICS until Samsung sort out _whatever_ it is and release a new version of ICS that isn't so trigger happy with suspect over voltage 'issues' .

Did Samsung get rid of all the default apps like boards.ie and adverts.ie yet. ?? :D

Hi all,

I've got the same issue. It started on Saturday morning, I've backed up and restored the phone-doesn't help. It's up to date according to Kies so I really don't know what to try next. Sheena, what would you recommend? I'm with 3 by the way.

Thanks,

Jack

If you've already tried a factory reset then it would be best to bring it to a Three store or Fonemenders to have it sent for a repair.

Although I've seen a few people online recommending turning it off and leaving it unplugged from a charger for an hour, that has worked for a few people if you want to try that first.

Keep us posted as to how you get on Jack.

Hi All,

It seems that (touch wood) the problem has solved itself. Unless there was an update pushed to my phone that I didn't see. When I plug in and unplug it works normally. Fingers crossed it carries on working.
