Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Env issue Hey, saw your post while searching for tips on EnV phones. I was going to purchase one off ebay (enV 2), where the guy replaced the screen and it works (pics as proof). However, he didn't know you had to solder the speaker back to the ribbon. Since it sounds like you've taken 1 or 2 apart, I was wondering how hard this would be to do. If you could email me at MSU_trainer@hotmail.com with any advice I'd appreciate it!! Thanks so much! Dave

Sorry, i have been out and you may not need my help any more but here goes.

When you take apart the envy, the speaker will come out and should go back in no problem. If something comes lose like a wire and needs soldering, its tough on those small parts. you will need a small soder gun, a computer tech store might have one small enough. Also get small soder. There alot of heat involved and soder smoke can be toxic if enhaled alot. try in a wel vented garage or outside. Take the phone apart and do it carefully. Make sure not to melt anything else while sodering.

You get better with experience and i would practice soldering a couple of small wires together for practice first so you get the feel for how soder moves when it turns liquid.

I havent had to soder on a cell phone bwefore. If it has some kind of ribbon instead of a wire, then it may not be possible and you may cause more damage trying.

Its cheaper to have the tech insurance,it has a $50 deductable, just copy all your numbers and files onto the Micro SD, then drop in water, take to verizon and bingo, new one for $50 bucks

Good luck

Verizon's policy to swap out a phone for different model is having it swapped out 3 times in 90 days for same issue. If you have had it done 3 within 90 days go into store and speak with manager and they will do what they call a multi FRU

Orange LG EnV(VX9900) Cell phone problem


From description , it looks like a faulty display ribbon connector. The phone must be taken apart, and probably the part replaced to fix this.

Well that happens on Ebay, you pay less than RRP, but it is difficult to get guaranty cover.

My suggestion:

Ebay offers paypal cover up to $500 if you open a dispute with the seller within 45 days from purchase.

Go to Ebay, if you are still in time open a dispute immediately (even if they suggest contacting seller first), as time is running out.

After opening the dispute, contact the seller , explain the situation , and see if he want to give you refund, otherwise ask Ebay full refund through dispute resolution.

Broken charger port


i have the same problem with my enV my friend stripped the wires to my charger at the part where you plug it into the phone so now to charge my phone i tape the red wire to the positive on the battery and the black wire to the negitive there will be a shiny metal goldish color thing (there like 4 lil gold bars) on your battery that looks like this --> (negative) | | | | (positive) | - | | | + | tape the wires on the outside were the symbols are - and + and try not to let it toch the middle bars on the battery or it wont work and dont cover the little bars up with tape put the battery back in the phone making sure the wires dont move to much and it should charge sometimes you got tape the battery onto the phone to make sure it doesnt pop out but its what i do and it saves you money on having to go buy a whole new one or if you know someone with the same phone give them your battery to charge it :)

Cracked screen


I've had my enV for about a year, now. within the first month, I cracked its screen. I have both insurance and a warranty for it, but Verizon is unimpressed-- they suggested that I either purchase a new model, or perhaps buy the enV 2. it's whatever.
