Ok, nitty gritty. After an issue with the micro usb port where I constantly had to prop it in some weird way or fiddle forever to get it to charge, it now started doing this thing where the soft buttons light up and then it acts like it's about to restart but then it flashes a lightning bolt and some chinese characters across the screen. They stay if the connection is solid. Once in a great while if I get the right angle it will go to restart and actually flash the oppo logo but then it goes back to the chinese again. It almost looks like a fast boot screen but that's not what it is I don't think.
Has anyone ever seen this before? How screwed am I? can I just pick up a micro port at radio shack or something and replace it myself? Is it a software thing like a power surge to the cmos flash the boot? Any help much appreciated.
