1 Answer

LG 8100 i was making a call and my LG 8100 turned itself off on me and then turned itself back on. It has turned itself off before but i've never seen it turn back on again. Why would it turn off out of the blue for no reason?

    How do i stop this from happening, it does it quiet frequently and i can't imagine that there are than many updates so there must be a problem with the OS right? What can i do with it?

Hi Imatt015,
This is called "restarting". The mobile when restarting turns off and turns back on just as it happens to our PC when we restart it. This may happen at times when the OS of the mobile has encountered a problem or if there is some updates to any software in the mobile.

    You can take your mobile to repair service person and get the OS of the mobile setup again. That would help.

LG Rumor 2 turning on and off.

First, make sure if this problem appear after you install any APP, if so you can try to brush system to fix it.
Else maybe the following cases:

1, mobile phone motherboard leakage lead the current too large.
2, The inside circuit protection of the lithium battery is too sensitive, so it power off when circuit is large.
3, the battery itself is aging.
4, Battery contacts are dirt-bit, causing bad power supply.
5, The engagement between the battery and the phone is easy to loose bits. (try to remove the back case and press the battery then try to turn on it to see if it also turn off and on). If so, just make a piece of paper to stand the battery up
Of course, don't forget to see if the power button is back to its own place

My LG phone stopped making sounds today. The volume is on but it will not make any noise. It was not dropped and did not get wet.

Hold down the power button until the phone turns itself off, take the battery out for 2 minutes. Then replace the battery and turn the phone back on. If this does not correct the sound problem then it must be a hardware issue and needs to be replaced or repaired on the inside.

My phone shuts off by itself several times a day. It has even shut itself off during a call. I am constantly checking to make sure it's still on.

What firmware version do you have? Go to "Menu | Settings & Tools | 0. Phone Info | 2. SW/HW Version" and check the {SW Version] shown.

I'm on Verizon, and I've got firmware version 05 (shown as "VX920V05")

Two possible things to try that I've seen suggested:

(1) get a new software update if you don't have the latest version. This has to be done at a Verizon store - they take your phone and updated it with the new firmware;

(2) Turn off, remove battery, and check battery contacts. If the battery is only making intermittent contact, or if it disconnects briefly when shocked or bounced, this could cause the phone to power down. Clean contacts with a clean eraser (blow out the eraser-dust bits...) and try again.

I've seen both of these suggested, and some people who have claimed one or the other worked, but also some who have tried these and still have the problem. So if one or both of these don't work, you could take the phone back and ask for an exchange.

Screen does not light up for code entry

the LG Env Touch Turns it's screen on by motion activation, when you hold it up to your ear, it turns itself off
when you put it in front of you it turns back on
maybe there is something wrong with the tilt in your phone
i have the LG EnV Touch and it is a great phone
maybe you could of dropped it and it wasnt working right now with that feature

I ve just opened the box and turned on phone.Nothing on screen!

send it back. It sounds like even if your were to fix this by taking out the battery and putting it back in, it should not do that new. Get it replaced ASAP

My LG KS360 won't turn on even when i charge it

You should try taking out the battery and then putting it back in. Then hold the power (the red phone button) button for about 5-7 seconds. If the screen STILL doesn't show, then I'm afraid that there is a hardware problem and you should take it back to the place where you bought it.

LG Rumour takes longer to turn on everytime it is turned off

My name is Tim and I am collection Specialist with Verizon Wireless, I see a lot of phones with problems but not any like this. This phone has truly seen its better days. Take it to a store and have them replace it with a different LG Rumor phone. IF you don't have Total Equipment Protection on your plan, then you are still covered under warranty for the 1 year or 2 year depending on the manufacturer warranty. But if you have Total Equipment Protection then your warranty is good for the life of the contract and you DO NOT have to pay the 50 dollar deposit, replacement should be free. If the Verizon Store is closed by you then call Verizon from a landline phone or another cell phone and they can get one to you within 2 days using priority shipping. If you don't have Verizon, then contact your service provider and speak to their customer service team.
