    i have the same problem with my phone, it started after i was on an airplane..not sure if you had the same problem. Sprint told me when i called the customer service that when it does this that it means the phone went into panic mode for some reason, they advised that i go to a store and have them reset the main settings. i went into a sprint store they told me that i was misinformed and they can't do anything about this, i would have to get a new phone through LG since i don't have insurance on the phone...they did try and back up all my files and reset the main settings just to apease me. It worked for about 2 hours and now i'm having the same problem. I've heard that LG has a yr warrenty on thier phones that's my next step! Good Luck

    I have the same problem and no one can even hear me when I call them. Sprint told me to hang up the phone take out the battery and wait two minutes while they fix it on their end and then they'd call me back. They never called back and never fixed it.

    me too, mine says USB connected and I cannot access applications or check email. I haven't been near an airport, just happened sometime last night while I was sleeping. I tried cleaning the port the battery plugs in and tire taking the battery out for 2 minutes. Nothing has worked and I am pissed. I have only had this phone for 8 months.

My son just came in on an airplane and his was doing the same thing. But at another site, someone said the clean the ports where the USB (or battery charger) plugs in. I took a tissue wrapped around a toothpick and rubbed them off and the phone is fixed.

    I am glad I found this site. It worked. I think the USB outlet has some dust in it. After cleaning it, it works. Thanks.

Ok so i have this same problem going on and i read instuctions, researched the internet but no answers and finally called sprint and guess what its a glitche in youre phone. so the only solution is going into a sprint store and having all youre files downloaded and then they reset it to factory settings and yes u will lose all youre ringtones, contacts, and ect. unless u have them back them up!! i bet youre saying to youreself "great" yep its true !! hope this helps somebody in the future so they dont waste hours looking for a solution

How to fix screen on lg rumor 2


What you need to do is to get a screw driver, open the phone and remove the flex that connect the screen to the panel and put it back.

If the problem continues, then you have to change the screen with a good one.

Here are the instructions for changing the clock display. I'm sure somewhere along the way you can set the clock too.

Press Menu > Settings/Tools > Settings > Display >
Main Screen > Foregrounds > Clock & Calendar
2. Select Normal Clock, Analog Clock, Digital Clock,
Dual Clock, or Calendar, and then press Menu/OK .
3. Press Menu/OK to apply the clock display setting.

This came from the manual for the LG Rumor at this link:

I dropped my LG rumor 2 about 2.5 feet or 3 feet and the screen went blank and everything still works...but you cant see anything happening just hear it. HELP PLEASE!!!

The problem you are experiencing has to do with the screen of your mobile.All you need to do is to get to a phone store and get the screen of your phone replaced so your phone can work perfectly again.

I have a lg rumor and on the main screen, it says usb connected. I don't have anything connected. How do I fix this?


You can try out this method to fix the problem.Try turning the phone off and take out the battery for an hour or two. Then insert the battery and it should be cleared. Or else go to sprint store they will reset it to factory settings and you will lose all your information and other media files present in your phone. This is the only solution to this problem.

Thank you !!

Usb Connected, it's not

The same thing happened to mine, I called sprint, and they said it was due to the phone getting wet, but my phone has never gotten wet, i was done messing with it, so i got a free Rumor 2 online.

LG RUMOR went through washing machine!

You should buy a new phone, 90 percent of the time the screen shorts out when it gets wet. These phones are terrible, i would take advantage of having to get a new phone and get something completely different.
