    screen frozen on startup, the lg rumor is a piece of sh**. I already sent my first rumor back to LG for a replacement because it died for no reason the first time. It took about 3 weeks for me to recieve a new on and 5 days later i tried to turn it on and it wont load past the start-up screen

    My LG rumor does this all the time.. It will be working fine and all of a sudden it turns off by itself. Sometimes it does not even display the shut down screen or come back on.

My rumor 2 won't turn on.


If you have a micro sd disk in your rumor, remove it, then try restarting again. This works in the Rumor and I'm guessing the Rumor 2 has the same bug that 'tries' to boot off of the micro sd disk. Once it starts up normally you can re-insert the micro sd disk.

My lg rumor just sits at the lg rumor starter scrren


Take the battery out of your phone and wipe the gold contacts with a soft cloth. Wipe the contacts gently on both the phone and the battery. Then replace the battery and test. If this does not work you must go to a Sprint Repair Center.

LG Rumor won't turn on


I had this problem too. Do you have a micro sd disk installed? If so, remove the micro sd disk. When you restart it should start right up, and then you can put the micro sd disk back in and all should work normally. I know, it is a big pain in the rear. For some reason when it boots up, IF there is a micro sd disk in, it tries to boot from the sd disk, and can't get out of that cycle. I don't like little bugs like this and will wait and see if I buy a rumor 2 or not the next time I replace one of my other phones.

The LG Rumor is blinking white every 5 second on the screen


Have you updated your firmware? You may need to do that.

Go to Setting/Tools from the menu, then tools and then update firmware.

If this doesn't work, you need to take your LG Rumor back to the store were you bought it. If you have insurance they will fix it or give you a new phone.

Blinking LG Rumor Screen


Try letting the phone die by letting the battery run down. Then charge it back up and see if it will work. If not, you will have to take the phone into a repair center or store.
