    Thank you for your suggestions. I checked and tried all of them, but still can't get it to work. I'm 99% sure this is a bug. It happened exactly when the version Android was updated on my phone. I think it's a specific issue with the way I selected Charge Only, the LG-specific options, and the Android update.

    ---

    Have I tried a different computer? Yes. I have tried it on Linux, Windows 7, and Mac OS. The Linux computer is the computer I was previously able to use to connect to.

    The pop-up option does not return, even though I reset the phone to factory settings. It is locked into Charge Only mode even after a full settings reset.

    I don't remember if I've tried flipping the USB-c connector over in the phone, but I've tried several dozen times, so I'm sure I've randomly had it both ways over the course of my experimentation. Also, I would expect the super expensive ones I've purchased would work both ways. I've also tried jostling them in the port a bit to no effect.

    ---

    If by STORAGE you mean the option I see in the General tab of my Settings, when I click on it, it only has device storage options and there are not three dots anywhere. I've explored every inch of my settings looking for places to affect the USB connection type. It's not an issue of me just not searching hard enough for the option.

    I had a similar problem when I installed a software update on my Android Tablet.
    After the update the MTP stopped working and to fix the issue I installed USB driver for Android
    through the google play store. This seems to have reset a software setting and MTP is now working fine.

    What they mean is on certain devices you will have MTP show up in the storage option and to see all of the menu items you press the three dots.
    On my device I get a message saying Connected as media device then the storage option changes to USB PC Connection.

    So, I'm actually having this same problem with my LG Stylo 2, which is Marshmallow. Instead of being stuck in charging, mine is stuck in MTP, but still only charges. I'm using cords that I know work for data transfer, connecting to a USB port I know that works as well. I am trying to run a system update, to see if it ends up overwriting something.

    Mikedt suggested changing the cable. That's all it took for me. Problem solved. Thanks, Mike.

    Hey guys
    I m using Itel Wish A41 and facing the very same problem as-
    I pull down the notification when I am connected, and there are no options do to anything but charge. In developer mode, under Select USB Configuration, I cannot select anything but Charging Only. If I select MTP (Media Transfer Protocol), it says Charging only, regardless of whether I am connected to a computer. I used the original cable that came with my phone, same result.
    I tried the above solutions but it was all waste.
    Need Help
