Phone "Sparking and Popping"

My phone was put on charge at about 10pm last night, at 12.30 I was woken by what I can only describe as a "popping sound" and the phone appeared to be sparking. (a white flash of light was coming from the phone) I disconnected the charger from the socket and the popping and sparking continued until I took out the battery. The phone appears to be working ok now but I am worried about charging the phone again. Any ideas what this could have been or asnyone had a similar issue?

    I have just had exactly the same thing happen when I tried to connect my LG viewty via USB to my laptop. The sparking and loud popping didn't stop until I took the battery out, I put it back in and it was fine so I had another go connecting it to my laptop but exactly the same thing happened again. I have now come online to see if anyone else has any idea what is happening. I am going to call o2 tomorrow and get them to seed me a new one cos I am now scared of my phone. Good luck, hope you work it out.

2009 TOYOTA COROLLA BATTERY LIGHT ON AND WHEN TRYING TO START POPPING IS HEARD


I would stop using the car immediately. You don't provide details of what the "popping" sound sounds like (mini explosions? sparking?) but from the fact the battery (warning) light is on, there is something wrong with the charging system, perhaps a failed capacitor in the alternator. The popping sound could be from arching within the alternator circuit, and the high currents involved could cause a fire.

Charged my phone last night and will not turn on this morning


Thats what my phone does when the battery is dead. perhaps it did not charge last night. see if the phone will turn on while connected to the charger. if so, the battery is dead or defective.

Sony Bravia XBR-2 32-inch LCD with popping noise problem


Has anyone heard of something like this where the cable box/service is causing popping sounds? yes & it is common problem. And is this something I should be concerned about causing damage to the TV's speakers? not at all. The Sony tech-support representative (over the phone) diagnosed it further to a problem not with the TV but with the cable box/service because there were no popping sounds when I played a DVD on my Playstation 2 that is attached to the TV. they are right that your problem is not due to tv. it is due to cable box/service? yes but not defective it reqires to change the way you have connected tv to cable.please call tech to get it connected in such a way so that you do not get popping sound when you you put off cable box.

Sparking / Popping Microwave


GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on these units. They replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode at no charge for parts as long as a GE-authorized service center does the work. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. To see if yours is covered, see this bulletin: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf Otherwise, you need to contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 as soon as possible and tell them your problem and they will put you in touhc with a local authorized servicer.
