Over the last few weeks I've been noticing my battery levels fluctuating when I plug it in to charge and alot of the times my phone thinks it's still charging even when the plug is removed. Also when I switch off my phone- the battery charging icon keeps sporadically popping up preventing me from starting my phone- the only way to start it is to actually connect the charger and hit the power button.
I noticed this problem whenever I try any of the ICS roms- the error message 'Charging paused due to over voltage' keeps popping up. I've gone flashed various gingerbread roms thinking it was a software issue but now I think it may be a problem with my charging port. I also checked my voltage levels and they're hovering around 3.9V. Does anyone know what's happening and how to fix it?

Did You get Your handset liquid damaged? Might look like a silly question but i would sell mobiles myself and noticed that such symptoms might to be related to water/condensation damage...
Hopefully not in your case

Well no, my phone's been dry throughout. Never got it wet. The condition has progressively gotten worse over the last week. The switching off problem and ICS issues tipped me off that there was a problem here. All this time I thought my battery fluctuation issues were because of the rom/kernel

Probably the best idea would be to flash stock rom from your country and send it away for warranty repair, with a charger attached... no point fiddling with it yourself (especially that its not firmware related)
Good Luck

Mine does the same - BUT it only started after I flashed an ICS ROM? And it's intermittent; some days it doesn't do it at all, then it'll do it all day... No logic to it? And my phone has never gotten wet either...

Of course; it's a funny one, though? I've just rebooted my phone several times, removed the battery, reinsterted, rebooted, and it's behaving again...

The weird thing is the problem has carried itself over to the gingerbread roms. The core problem is that my phone thinks the usb/power cable is plugged in when it's not
