Hi guys, having a bit of a problem with my phone atm. I'll be getting it sent off to be repaired anyway but I just wondered what it means.

On the charge screen (which is constant atm because the phone thinks a USB lead is connected), next to the battery is a yellow warning triangle and a thermometer.

I also can't turn the phone on unless I go to Recovery and reboot the system that way. Does anyone know what this means? Thanks.

It's a known problem with the USB port, take a look at this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1216163

It's easy to fix though, just follow the instructions in this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...9&postcount=13 I had the same issue a few weeks ago and fixed it that way

Good luck!

Shut-down the phone and take the battery out. Clean the usb port. If it doesn't help then carefully bend the usb PCB a bit downwards.

If you can't repair it, then send it off for a replacement.

Flashing Triangle with thermometer
I had the flashing yellow triangle and thermometer and tried all the various different ways of fixing which didn't work. I got the USB component replaced but then couldn't charge my phone, I then had it replaced again but that didn't work either it was only when it was replaced for a 3rd time that it worked properly.

I've seen all these problems before on my wife's S2. These problems disappeared after I replaced the USB board. If you want to try diy replacement, be careful.......there are THREE different versions of this board and they are NOT interchangeable....... Final bit of advice......bending the contacts *could* work, but at best, it'll be a temporary fix.....the socket is obviously worn/damaged and will still need replacing eventually......

Edit....just realised, this is a necro of an old post.....never mind....the info is still of use to anybody who reads it.....
