Hoping someone has either had a similar experience or can help.

Yesterday morning the wifes LG Optimus One P500h (on Telstraclear) as soon as you turned it on, it went straight into a yellow screened 'Emergency mode'.

Holding the power button and home key didn't work, taking out the battery and putting it back in didn't work either, but after removing the battery, SIM card, and micro SDHC card, and putting the battery only back in the phone started.

Turned it off again, then only put in the SIM card and battery, and the phone started.

Turned it off again, then put back in the micro SDHC card, along with the SIM card and battery, and the phone started.

During yesterday, it seemed to work ok, she could send txts, and recieve calls. All Good.

Last night as the battery was getting low, the phone was connected to the power plug and set to charge, but the battery hasn't seemed to charge at all.

As I am at work, and won;t be able to look at it until tonight, has anyone else had a similar experience?

The phone is stock, so no custom roms or anything like that.

Quick check, but have you confirmed the charger is actually working correctly?
My P500 stock wall charger only works on 'certain angles' now, so just a simple thing to check first.

Always worth trying a different cable/charger.

Well.

Tried the phone with both the LG cable and the cable from my Samsung last night and initially neither worked.

After a little bit of jiggling around with the cable in the bottom of the phone, managed to get it charging.

Seems to be some damaga somehow to the usb connection on the phone.
