Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

LG VX8550 will not power up

Went swimming (less than 30 seconds) with phone 6 months ago. Removed battery and dryed out phone. Purchased new battery and phone has worked for last 6 months. Today when I turned it on, nothing happened. I put it on charger and it charges and says battery charged, but phone will not turn on. Any thoughts, besides not swimming with the phone?

You should take the phone to a mobile service center and have them try to fix the phone for you....your mainboard may have to much corrosion on the mainboard.

Yes there is a reset. After you have opened the phone and let it dry a few days, put in the battery and hold the power and volume down button for about 6-10 seconds. This will then start the boot sequence.

My samsung mobile had water damage 1 month ago.i bought it 6 months ago.it's display has gone.it worked for 20-25 days even after that.now what is the best possible reliable solution?what will be the...


hello,when it got damaged by dropping into water,did you try to dry up the panel before putting it on,if not that would have affected the panel and also the battery,does the phone still power on,if no,you will have to get a battery from a store or a friend who uses same kind of phone to run the test in powering it on.since the screen does not display any longer i suspect the screen is faulty or the pones flex,so you will have to get a new one
the assumed estimated cost for both the screen and flex is about 30-50 dollars,
please kindly rate the solution if it's helpful,

take care.

LG enV won't charge.


If you have only had this phone for 6 months, it should still be under warranty. Also, if you have the insurance plan for the phone from your phone company, they should honor the policy and assist you or replace it for free. My first stop would be at the place that you purchased it from. Even if they wind up charging you a small fee, it will be much less than buying a new one. I hope that this helps.

Dropped LG Chocolate 8550 in the tiolet. How do I fix it?


You can keep it inside the Refrigerator for 30, in the side rack where the biscuits and medicines can be kept.Most of the misture will be removed and the unit can be restored.This should be done within one hour of the incident, that is before any oxidation reaction takes place with the parts of the unit.If it is late this will be a trial.

Broken battery contact


Dear lynn,

Yes this is a relatively speaking easy repair for any service center and repair shop and could be done in a matter of minutes.

The only complexity is dissasemble of the phone in order to reach to the right pin that broke.

This can be done by you or a friend technical enough with the ability to solder with a very steady hand.

If your phone is still under warranty (which is not very clarified) 1 year or less anyway take it to LG for warranty repair.

They have to do this for free.

LG VX8300 phone wet


I had this same problem and the problem actually is not with the phone. It means that the water damaged the battery. I purchased a new battery at a verizon store (because they have a 15 day return policy), popped it in and everything was hunky dory. Now I cannot say if there is any water damage to the rest of the phone, but when you are getting the error to use genuine battery, it is because that one is now damaged. New battery costs about 30 to 40 dollors

Hope this helps
