My phone has no sound, and it now says "-Car Kit-" WHY?

Firstly i come to your 2nd question where you asked what the meaning of Car Kit. Bro Car Kit means a sound system which contain also blue tooth, DVD, FM etc. So in Car Kit any one can pair their blue tooth devices i mean your cell phone where blue tooth are available. So when you pair your device at the define range then Car Kit will be connected with your phone so when your receive or dial a call then the Car kit speaker will be active automatically. You can hear voice from there.
Now come to your next question,
If your Car is off or you are so far from car then your speaker will be enable normally but if it don't work then means your speaker disable or inactive. As a result, you have to change your speaker by a expert technician then you will release from this problem. Thanks a lot

Car kit mode

Car kit mode is usually caused by debris in the phone's cable connector (at the bottom of the phone). The debris causes two or more contacts to be electrically connected to each other, causing the phone to think it's connected to a car kit. Remove the battery from the phone and clean the cable connector contacts with some rubbing alcohol and the corner of a towel. Also, try using an opened paperclip to scrape the contacts in the connector, this will remove any corrosion that may have built up.
Also this can happen due to shortening of the 2 power pins at the bottom. Try using an alluminium piece cone shaped and toggle the pins. They will come out. Car Kit mode comes sometimes due to moisture in the power pins, shortening it.

Getting an error that says car kit on phone

Mine said car kit and I kept reading it was because it got wet, and my phone didn't get wet. I noticed a little corrosion where I plug the phone in starting to form and I rubbed a little off and the car kit on the main screen went away.

Vx8300 stuck in car kit

I just ran into this problem myself (besides that fucked up white main screen i have). So after reading all these other solutions i played with the thing and found that its one of the right-most pins in the charging port. Probabily a pin touching the metal housing or another pin completes the same electrical circuit used to determine if a car kit is hooked in. I figured this one by shoving a knife through the opening to clear out any debris and every-swipe made the "car kit" banner dissappear. so check for pins touching something it shouldn't. ( i said F-it and ripped that pin out!)

Hope this helps more

Car charger

'Charger time" in the car kit menu means when it's plugged into a car charger, it's only going to "stay on " and charge for 3 hrs max or whatever you set it to.

It's useless for newer cars as newer cars don't continue to keep power flowing to the power ports when the car is off. it's more for older model cars.

Car kit

same problem....i found a neat solution to this one..see if it works for you too...i simply charged my phone as much as possible, drove to a nearby lake(you should do this while its light outside for best effect's to be noticed), and then i THROUGH the damn thing as farrrrr as sure that you spend the time so as to take it all in..then, go to your nearest retailer and get any new phone that does not say LG on the worked for me and i'm glad to say that it definetly decreased any homicidile thoughts i had been having due to the issue.

Above the Date and time it says -Car Kit- I do not have a Car kit and I can not make any calls I just now banged the connector end against my desk and I think that fixed it. Why would my phone do...

YOWZA .. Car kit means the pins in the charging port are either liquid damaged or bent and touching eachother.

with a tooth brush and some NON Corrosive cleaning spray .. try cleaning out the port ... Canned air wouldn't be a bad idea either.

If the damage isn't bad you can usually take the phone out of car kit, but if liquid has corroded the board then im afraid it's time for a new phone.

Well from my experiences, and I manage a wireless store, you have gotten the phone wet in someway. It could have been anything from just sitting in the sun or being in the bathroom when you take a shower. You may try putting the phone in a bag of white rice for 8 hours or so and that could make it come out of car kit.
