    I was texting and my phone went dead. I've charged it and it still won't go any further than the lg screen. I've charged it over night. It will come on if it is plugged in, and will have a full battery but as soon as I take out the power cord, it says "low battery powering down" and the lg screen comes back up...I love this phone, but not if this is going to continue to be an issue!!!

    I was asked to install the V10 firmware, and then it failed and locked on the LG screen. Did anyone get a resolution to how to get the phone working again?

    i have the same EXACT problem

  • Anonymous Apr 12, 2009

    It just started today. My battery died, so when I got to work I turned it on so I could plug it in and let it charge, but the LOTUS screen came on, but just stayed on, then after a while, it blinked and kept doing that over and over. I took the battery out and that didnt work, I took it to the radio shack store and they said there has never been a problem with the lotus its the best phone they have... yadda yadda yadda. now im out of a phone until i can get them to send me another one, then still im out of a phone til then - and im sure spring will bill me for all the days i dont have a phone too :(

    My Sprint location hadn't heard of the problem and simply gave me a new phone and waived the $55 fee. I agreed on the add'l insurance fee monthly until they fix the bug and then I'll cancel that monthly fee.

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.

Sprint said my LG Lotus is a brick after the unsuccessful V10 firmware update. They're sending me a new phone and waiving the $35 charge.

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 main display just stopped working in the middle of a text I have tried turning it off and taking out the battery if I filp the phone open the screen lightens but doesn't display anything


Take it to a sprint store that has a repair center (check Sprint.com and click "Find a store on the top right corner for which store in your area has the repair centers). They will fix it for free or for $35. Sprint is the only national carrier to support instore repairs, and I praise them for this.

LG Lotus bad connection to screens...


Do not take it apart yourself you will void any warrenty that is on the device! Take it to a repair center. If you have insurance on it it will cost you nothing. Your other option is to call customer care and request an exchange, you may need to be transfered to tech support for this. You will be sent a refurbished device if you are past 30 days from the time you activated. As long as it it not damaged beyond repair...i.e...water damaged, cracked screen, broken into a million peices, the exchange should be free....If you dont have insurance the repair and/or exchange will be $35 to $55

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.
