Samsung Galaxy S2 i9100 over-heating battery symbol fix (Probably water related)

It turns out that phones don’t like water (even rain). After a particularly heavy rain shower, my phone developed a strange behavior where it would show a battery symbol together with a hot thermometer and refuse to switch on. This fixed itself after 10 minutes or so, but some time later the similar symptoms reappeared.

  • The phone ran fine when on
  • When switched off the phone refused to switch on (with aforementioned over-heating battery symbol)
  • However, when the micro-usb had a power source plugged in everything worked fine.

It seems like this is a common problem with the usb connector, and some people have fixed similar issues by buying replacement usb cards. Fortunately, I didn’t need to go so far, blowing compressed air into the micro-usb connector completely fixed this issue.

      Hey Lisa,

      Sorry this wasn’t more helpful! Alas this is only a blog by one person, and I can only write down what works for me. I imagine such symptoms can have many causes.

      Hope you manage to fix your phone
