Out of the blue yesterday while charging, the area around the charging port of my LGG5 started to get extremely hot and smelled of burning, so I unplugged it.
It also didn't indicate that my phone was charging at all, despite being plugged in. I tried a different cord and USB charger and had the same issue.
I've removed the battery, my SIM card and restarted the phone - same issue.
The other baffling thing is that it doesn't do it every time I plug in my phone to charge, it's plugged in and charging right now without any problem at all.
But in the last 24 hours, it's gotten extremely hot and smells like burning 4-6 times when plugging my phone in to charge.
Any ideas what I can do?
