Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

LG8300 stuck vibrating continuously, now main screen blank

My LG8300 (18 months old) was working fine yesterday.
This morning I heard it vibrating and the main display was blank when I opened it to answer. It continued to vibrate continuously. It did not stop even after holding the Red End button to turn it off so I popped out the battery. I reinserted the battery, then I powered on the phone and the screen worked for long enough to check a text message and reply to it then the display started coming in and out and went blank. The outer smaller screen works fine. WHe I open the pohne sometimes the main screen flashes on briefly. it is now blank most of the time

    It started workng again after about one day so I suspect it picked up some moisture and dried out.

Sounds like water damage. Are there any red stickers under the battery? If so, then it is water damaged.

Either way, if you are the primary line then Verizon may offer you an early upgrade if your rateplan is above a certain price point (if that's who your on). If not, you can do an insurance claim, if you don't have insurance then you will have to either pay full price for a new one, or purchased a used one.

Hope this helps,
Simon.

yes of course, you need a new battery.
when you get this battery, also buy a universal charger.
do not insert the battery into the phone until you charge it for 3 hours with the universal charger.



after that the phone will work very fibenluis_14.jpgne.

Nokia e 61i white screen


My Nokia E61i sometimes starts up with the welcome screen and works normal for a while.
Then sometimes the screen will flash on start up or continues to flash
with spotted colors and not come on. Could this be a software problem?

Screen not working


Dear Sasselle98,

The problem can and probably is hardware related and will need repair. (flex cable, lcd screen etc)

Nevertheless since the phone is only 6 months old it is under warranty and will be fixed at a motorola repair service center. So do that since it is the manufacturer's fault!

My screen goes blank from time to time and when I turn it off and turn it back on again, it seems to re-boot itself and is fine. However, I have never had this problem with any other phone and fear my phone may be dying. It is only 1 year old and worked fine for the first 8 months I had it. But the blank screen seems to happen more frequently lately. I don't think I will buy and LG again.

Blank screen


Solution for Frizzyloo:
The most likely problem is that the connections between the phone and the screen have disconnected or are not connected properly. See if the screen will work if the phone is slid down or half way up etc. Try pushing down on the area around the screen and see if it works then.

Also get it to a repair person if this problem is continual. The problem will not be covered under warranty unless you get it in for under a year and it's worth replacing the connections.

Solution for Zeewon:
Try starting up the phone with out the sim and if it starts fine then your sim needs replacing. Try the same with the memory card. Also check your battery, there should be a sticker around where the contacts are and if it's red then your battery and the back of your phone have been wet. Wipe the back of the inside of the phone then replace the battery.


Good Luck to you both.
