hey all, just purchased a used SGS2 t989 running 2.3.5. Phone worked awesome till i used my usb charger. Ive been up all night trying to figure what the heck is wrong with the phone till i came across this thread.
did a factory reset no apps installed not even gmail setup, still having issues....
Here are my observations:
1-when charger is connected while phone is off, no battery display (is this normal for s2?) and when i turn phone off it shows battery icon with a charged message...wtf?!
2-Usb charger in phone > screen acts like its possessed!! starts choosing icons dialing...etc
3-USB phone to comp: like nothing is there!
4-I have an additional 2500mA battery > no avail.
5-Ive tried soft, hard, reset, battery pulls.....etc
a-do i have a lemon?
b-will rooting help?
(just switched from ATT, this is my 10th android, and my 3rd Galaxy series...eomething doesnt feel right here
just looking at the design of this port has me worried its a hardware issue.........all my previous galaxies had a nice metal bezel around the port....this one just seems to be floating. yikes.
ok someone suggested cleaning usb with isoprop and a brush, will give it a try and reply
