Can not connect to PC companion + Can not update to ICS

I have been looking at the forum but still can't find an answer:

Problem 1: My mobile does not get recognised by PC companion although the mobile will charge via USB.

Problem 2: due to the above, I can not update my mobile to ICS.

Please could someone breakdown the steps I should try? I have tried downloading various things mentioned but haven't managed so will start again.

Re: Can not connect to PC companion + Can not update to ICS

I have tried SUS before but sadly when I attach the phone to computer via USB while pressing the down volume button, a green light appears for a few seconds on the bottom left but disappears and the phone starts charging...

Any further help is much appreciated.

Thank you Jatinrungta for your help so far.

That is weird.After green light appearing phone should update not chare.It seems your phone port is loose try doing once again or take it to service center.

Re: Can not connect to PC companion + Can not update to ICS

I have read that others have had the same problem with the mobile charging when trying to update so I don't think my port is loose although I may be wrong.

Any ideas about how to get the mobile connecting to a PC too?

You have to try it again and again. It's little bit hard to press VOLL_DOWN and plug USB at the same time. After few seconds SUS should show message like "now you can release volume down button"....just try it few times and it must work ok Winking Face
