Question about LG VX5300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Cannot make calls or text

So I traded my old phone about a month ago for my fathers LG VX5300 and it has worked great until two or three days ago. I do not have any idea what is wrong every once in a while it works, barely works but even then I lose the calls and the person on the other end has a hard time hearing me. The display says that I have reception so that is confusing also I have made a few calls and texts that were successful but only a few. I can't run my business with a phone that works on magic please help!

If you haven't already, try removing the battery while the phone is still on....this is called a "hard reset" and can often help resolve "glitchy" performance. You could also try Over The Air (OTA)programming if your service provider offers it. Verizon's OTA number to dial is *228, then choose option 1 when prompted. If that doesn't help, you may try taking it to a store to have the phone "flashed", where you get upgraded software version or have the same version reinstalled to resolve any corruption of existing phone software.
If NONE of these suggestions help, considering replacing the phone, either through warranty exchange, phone insurance program, or upgrade purchase.

Cannot send out or recieve calls and texts


try turning off off for a min. or two that always help. call your co. and find out if the tranmitters are working they may be working on something in the area you are at. they can tell you if you have fair, good, or great coverage just by telling them the area ( zip coded) you are in. If all else fails like it my case, request a new phone.

How to repiar lg gd510 touch screen .....not working ........help meee plzz....


I have an LG GD510 , with unlimited texting included in the plan.
The texting feature has always worked for me, until a couple of days ago when my messages were not going through, nor could I receive any text messages.
When I try to send a text message, it says "waiting" for a bit, and then goes to "sending" for about two seconds, after which it just goes back to "waiting." After several minutes, it then displays "message cannot be delivered."
I thought maybe my services were disconnected, but they are not. I can make and receive incoming/outgoing calls. I also called the company, and they told me my services have not been suspended. When I asked about my problem, they told me their systems were down, and to try back in the morning, but I still cannot text, and it has been on-going for a couple days now.
Do I have to hard reset my phone? And if so, how do I do that?
I was told it was under "touch settings", but when I go there, there is nothing about resetting your phone.
Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.

Distorted screen


Turns out it is a defect in the phone. I traded for another Lotus; it doesn't happen to all of them and hopefully it won't happen with my new one.

Take a tiny screw driver or something like it and with it short out pins in the connection port on the left. The phone should then turn off. I had to do this a number of times and finally got car kit to turn off. Hope this works for you it did for me!

I accidentally washed my LG VX5300, please help.


When electronics get wet, they MUST be taken apart as soon as possible and dried out. It probably has some wet areas inside that may have fried some connections. Water or corrosion by the water have short circuited something inside. There is still hope I hope to either take it apart and inspect and clean the corrosion off of all electronics or take it to an electronics shop and get them to do it.
