Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

My new lotus phone turns on but will not go to any screen except the logo. And, it keeps turning off, too. We've tried to be certain that it's charging, but that screen won't come up when it's plugged in. Again, we've tried to be sure that the charger is plugged properly, etc. So, it doesn't seem to be a power problem... Any ideas?

    I have a new lotus 2 weeks. It freezes sometimes and will reset. I took mine to the sprint store ( one that works on the phones) When I opened phone at the store there was NO screen. They are replacing it, they said it is not suppose to do that at all- take it to a store and tell them it's defective, Good luck!

    This exact same thing is happening to me right now!! I've never had this problem with any phone. I have not dropped it in water, ect...nothing has happened that should make my phone do this. It's very frustrating, and the people that repair the phones have no answers for it. Pretty annoying, hopefully I'll be able to have this taken care of tomorrow!

    Lately, while texting, the key pad tones would stop working. I'd press a button and there'd be no sound. To fix this, I had to shut the phone off and then turn it back on. Today, I had to do it and now my phone won't turn on. The LG LOTUS logo keeps blinking on and off on my screen. It's terrible. I'll tell you this: SPRINT has beautiful phones but honestly, their phones are JUNK. I had issues with my previous phone, THE MOTO Q. After my contract is up, I am going to another company. This is too much of a common problem with SPRINT. When I go into a store tomorrow, I am going to raise hell.

My LG Lotus when i turn it on stays on the original LG LOTUS screen and freezes, any ideas on how to fix it? i was text messaging and my phone froze and shut off. when i turned it back on it stayed...

Ugh. The same exact thing happened to mine. I am so incredibly angry and frustrated! I heard that trying a new battery might work... I tried my sister's battery, since she has the same phone, and it was no go for me, but you ought to give it a try if you can... I did everything I could to try and fix it, but it won't do anything else!

My LG lotus won't turn on.

Mine started doing the same thing yesterday. In doing a bit of research I found on the LG support forums that the phone is probably fried. The good news is that it's covered under the 1 year manufacturers warrenty and can be returned to the sprint store, or your carrier and they will replace it on site. I've already talked to Sprint and they said as long as there's no water damage or other visable signs of shock that would have caused the damage that they'll provide me with a new phone. This was a huge relief to me, I loved this phone before it went batty and really can't afford a new one.
Hope it works out for you as well.

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.

Frozen screen on lg lotus phone

I am on my 3rd LG Lotus and have had the exact same issues with my screen with all of them...freezing up, blank/black screen, and the picture being all scrambled, or even funky colors. This is all due to LG's brilliant design of the hinge on the phone. Notice how when you have the phone open the top part (with the screens) has a bit of give in it if you push on it? That "give" is the hinge pinching the wire that supplies electricity/data to the screens. LG has designed the hinge so poorly that it cannot withstand normal wear and tear of being opened and closed for even a few weeks before it begins to fail. Shame on you LG!! I smell a lawsuit coming on.....

As far as a solution, there isn't really one except for get a new phone if you can. Maybe even get the warranty on it (something like $7 a month plus a crazy deductible between $50-$100). After fixing it 1 or 2 times, you could have purchased a different phone. This is really upsetting because the Lotus is such an awesome design. LG, I hope you are reading this.

Mine did the same so I swopped the battery with wifes phone (which is the same) and mine worked like normal, i took it back to the store and they gave me a new battery but before that i played around with the usb cable and it was charging up and holding a charge so it's something to try.
