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.

I didn't charge my phone last night so the battery is completely dead, phone powered down and turned off-I have it plugged into the USB on my computer and I can't tell if it's charging, it won't turn...

disconnect your phone from your computer again, it would take time to charge there, remove your battery, let it cool a little bit and return it back, and charge with your charger. after 5 minutes switch it on and check.

My phone went out of battery last night, today i have put it to charge from my computer for three hours but it is not working yet

try using the travel charger if that does not work then try another battery if it still does not work then you may need to either reflash the OS or replaced the USB charging port.

Phone wont turn on

How long did you have the phone before this problem? Is there a warranty on the phone? Did you buy it brand new?

My phone wont turn on.

If the charging light comes on with the charger plugged in you probably have a broken power button. if the charging light does not come on while plugged in, your charging port most likely is damaged. take it to your local cell phone technician. if you havent any nearby you can contact ,they should be able to repair it.

Battery dies fast!

well only the people that doesnt have internet or anything like that, you might need to do this.
1) go to Options.
2) go to Mobile Network
3) then where it says Data Services, it have to be turned off.
That happened to my phone and now is normal like before.

Battery question

No, that is not typical. What might have happened is this: If there was an appointment reminder in your calendar, it could have woken up the unit and left it on till the battery was dead. There should be settings that will allow you to either disable the waking feature or make the unit turn off after being inactive for a certain amount of time.
