    I have the same issue an so does everyone I know with the phone this really is shocking from LG, if this is only a software issue then where the f**k is the fimrware patch! And if this is hardware issue then we can only assume bad manufacturing and this should have been recalled months ago!! Well I for one will not be using another product manufactured under that stinking name!

    Yeah I'm having the same problem!!! REALLY ANNOYING!!! Because I'm on contract for calling and if i'm on a call for more than 1-2 minutes The phone Turns off!!! and says low battery! then i try switching in on 30 mins later and its full battery again!!! I bought a new battery it arrives in next few days... hopefully this solves the problem... I can't think what else to do... especially since i spend $800 on the product and now i can't afford a new phone...

    My phone is also randomly switching itself off. Basically if anyone calls or texts it immediately switches off/goes flat. I actually bought a new phone (different one) and once I took the sim out, the phone didn't go flat for days. I tried buying a new battery but that didn't help either. Is it a software problem?

Try changing "network settings" to "GSM only" instead of "automatic".

I have exactly the same problem! My Viewty just switches itself off whenever I send/receive text/calls. I can't even switch it on anymore without it turning itself off after less than a minute!
I have contacted LG, but they are not responding. Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

Hi.....my lg viewty can't touchscreen buttons are inactive and l can't put the pin


It is possible that the phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove or format the card. Copy only valid files to the card and do a scan before it is replaced. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone. If the phone hangs up or is slow when it is switched ON , then it is possible that the fault is relative to the software and will need a reinstallation. Possible hardware issue cannot be ruled out.

My lg viewty turns itself off whenever I or anyone


check that the memory card u use is not a cheap one you get such as carphone warehouse's version -_-' if u have a branded one such as san-disk then its most likely a fault with the phone itself, i have had the same problem, i replaced the battery and put in on charge for a full two nights and it worked fine.

hope this helps =D

LG Viewty KU990 - mine keeps switching itself off and then won't switch back on - any ideas please??


I think your battery is running out of power so
recharge it and wait for 1 or 2 min.

If not then you've to replace the battery.

I hope this will help.

LG ku990 icon shows(application running)but don't know whats running. checked bluetooth and internet and all is closed. So don't know what application is running. tried switching off the phone (made a beep...


Apparently I had the camera application open when the phone rang. After completing the call the phone did not go back to the camera, but the main screen. I forgot that I was on camera application.
Problem solved.

LG Viewty will not switch off.


Hi i am not 100% sure but have you been noticing any battery life issues yet? The red key may (Im not sure) be the default dead key which means as soon as you battery degrades the red key will stop working. This can normally be fixed via buying a new battery. I am not 100% sure tis was in the case of my old nokia but it may work on a viewty thanks.

Swithing off and poor signal


i would advise you take your phone either back or to a phone shop because that has something to do with the phone itself and the on/off deffinitly is the phone
