    I'll say it all again........ If carefully cleaning fluff/debris from the charging port doesn't fix the issue it is because the port is damaged. IT IS A HARDWARE FAULT !!!!
    No amount of flashing/reflashing will help. You might get a temporary fix by carefully bending the centre pin inside the port upwards (towards the screen side of the phone), but any effects will be TEMPORARY.
    Tou need a new charge port ribbon cable. They are less than £10 off ebay. If you are not confident about changing this yourself you will have to send it off to be fixed.
    In future take care how you insert and remove the charger or USB cable.

    Hi All, I am a newbie to here, but have been a hardware engineer for line/ DMP/ laser printers / laptops / desktops / SAN's / SPARC / Intel servers for 25+ years.. I have a rooted SGS2 I9100 with standard ICS and been getting this message recently... (even when not plugged in) "voltage too high. Charging Paused". Up until 2 weeks ago, it was in the car when it was plugged into the 12v supply, and only when decelerating (thought it was due to a surge). Recently, been doing it all the time, even when not plugged in.
    Thought about the battery circuitry, and ran a pencil lead (graphite) over all the battery contacts (I have been using a mix of Samsung and Ankher Batteries). Also ran the lead pencil end over the four phone battery contacts. The problem has not reappeared for the last 2 hours when previously it was every 4 minutes. Worth a try for £0.01p?
    Please let us all know if it works..

    Have had the charging paused voltage too high error for a week. Upgraded to ics about 2 months ago. hard reset, cleaned usb but problem still returned. Eventually got the courage to gently insert flat tip screwdriver between the flange and the back of the usb port and lifted the flange forward. error ceased immediately and has not returned yet. have ordered a new port / ribbon cable from ebay (just in case)
    this utube video describes the process of replacement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aChzv3IzxsU

    I too have had the same issues on my S2. Ive had ICS on for a few weeks so I doubted it was the issue.

    Mine is still under Samsung warranty though (not ATT service), so I called Samsung they set me up with a prepaid UPS shipping as well as free return shipping.

    It took a week for the repair.

    They replaced the USB component at no charge.

    I'm happy with the whole service I received with Samsung here in the states. The call center and repair center are both here and its nice talking and working with someone in your own county and language.

    Thank you Rich. It seemed reasonable that this was a hardware problem, not a software problem, so I was hesitant to start flashing or downloading. I took the advise of another and gently bent the pin upward with a small flathead screwdriver and it has ceased giving me the mssg. I will look into purchasing a new port cable but in the meantime I am so grateful my phone has stopped beeping and giving me that mssg.

    I have also been having the problem with that error message, however now my phone will not charge. I am told that it will take $100 to fix the charging port. I am purchasing the materials to o this myself. My only question is: Can anyone offer instructions on how to replace it seeing as how I have not found any on the web? It is a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S2 SPH-D710. It is flashed to Boost Mobile (not that I think that this matters)

    I checked the link but am still unsure seeing as how that particular S2 is a different model than mine. I have the SPH-D710 model and I searched the web to see if I just need to replace the little metal part of my charging port, or if I would need the whole usb flex piece. I just wanted to make sure which part I needed. Seeing as how they are both pretty cheap, if I can't find the answer I will just buy both.

    I agree! The only way to fix my Galaxy s2 was to swap out the USB board. It was quite a simple (and cheap) fix.
    If you'd like to see how I did it, I have posted my "how-to"
