Question about LG Cell Phones
The cell phone turns on but just has a flashing lights on the main screen will not come on completely. I cant get into the main srceen to try to reset the phone. IS IT POSSIBLE TO RESET THE WITHOUT GETTING INTO THE MAIN SCREEN.
ok so i have this same problem going on and i read instuctions, researched the internet but no answers and finally called sprint and guess what its a glitche in youre phone. so the only solution is going into a sprint store and having all youre files downloaded and then they reset it to factory settings and yes u will lose all youre ringtones, contacts, and ect. unless u have them back them up!! i bet youre saying to youreself "great" yep its true !! hope this helps somebody in the future so they dont waste hours looking for a solution

My son just came in on an airplane and his was doing the same thing. But at another site, someone said the clean the ports where the USB (or battery charger) plugs in. I took a tissue wrapped around a toothpick and rubbed them off and the phone is fixed.

If the LCD is white/and or garbled then "YES" this is a known issue.
First locate the Sprint Insignia (Label on the back of device) to check manufacturer date. You will notice two bar-codes one entitled ESN HEX. At the very bottom of the this bar-code is a combination of numbers and letters. The first two numbers are the manufacturer's date (Example: 801). The first number stands for the year and the second number signifies the month. The example above indicates January of 2008.
Most LG Rumor Series manufactured before April 2008 suffered with white/garbled screen. This is a problem with flex cable; simple fix.
Just visit your local Sprint Service Center for this specific repair. Regardless if you have insurance or not, this defect is still covered. Thanks.

SOURCE: how do i fix a wet lg rumor?
Get it out of water immediately.Make sure phone is turned off. Take out battery, open all doors on phone and put the entire phone with the keyboard extended out inside a huge jar of raw uncooked rice, I had mine in a screw-type peanut butter jar with the phone buried. keep in a there for about three to four days.....make sure the battery is out the entire time and you dry it with soft towels,DO NOT USE A BLOW Dryer AT all.....
You can blow the water in deeper...I have the Green LG Rumour 1..
The rice will absorb the water,,,I first had the phone in cat litter till we bought the rice.
I made the mistake of taking it to Sprint that night and they turned it on and the water droplets were in the screen....DO NOT turn the phone on for about 4 days or more...make sure the phone is bone dry....About 5 days later, take the phone of the rice jar,,,,look for any signs of moisture, if none, then plug in the phone and see if the green light comes on, on the side of the screen,,,if yes...then put the battery in....if good then try out the phone's systems...I did this tonight, my round button is gone, I got my phone list copied and my pictures,,,I was most worried about my pix !
I am still trying to find a way to get my text messages back :)
