Try umounting it and then mounting it again.

umount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00

I hope this will work for you.

sadly not

[root@www ~]# umount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
[root@www ~]# mount /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
mount: /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 already mounted or / busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 is already mounted on /
[root@www ~]# cd /tmp
[root@www tmp]# ls > a
-bash: a: Read-only file system
[root@www tmp]#

Activate the LVM as well. It should fix your issue. Earlier I have faced the same issue and I have fixed by activating the LVM.

# lvchange -a /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00

Have you tried to scan the file system with fsck if it is bad ?

If you face issue then try to boot with Live CD and scan the partition. Update if you required help for the same.
