Default Voltage too high - need help fast

Hi guys,

At the moment I am in an internet cafe in Nepal. I do volunteerwork in a small remote village. Two days ago I unplugged the charger from my S2, it started to give the message: "charging paused, voltage too high". Now it thinks it is always charging, even with the charger being unplugged. It gives the message around once every thirty seconds, very annoying.
I hope there is no hardware damage? Or is this a software issue?
Since I am not able to access the internet very often, I was hoping to get a quick solution here. I really appreciate all help!!

re voltage issues. I recently had the same issue with my wife's S2. I read all the posts on several sites regarding possible causes and solutions. This is how I solved ours.
1. Cleaned the USB connector with contact cleaner.
2. re aligned the post in the USB connector as centrally as possible.

Two things happened immediately; when the phone was inserted into the docking cradle all operated as expected. The other it hasn't complained regarding the voltage for some hours now.

I hope this helps
