My cell phone turns off every time I unplug it from a charger. How can I stop that?


Sounds like your phone may have a defective battery. Try removing the battery, claening the contacts and make sure it is fully seated. Then hook up the charger and make sure the phone shows the battery is charging. After it has been charged and you remove it from power and it dies again it is probably the battery.

Verizon Voyager will not chage or work on battery, fine on AC


Sounds like the battery connections may be corroded, try gently cleaning them with a pencil eraser. Clean the connections on the battery and in the phone. Water damage is indicated by a red indicator in the phone. if it is red it indicates water damage which is probably why they will not replace it. If you have insurance on the phone that may be an option for you.

"use genuine battery" message


Because you are using a battery with more mAH your phone is not getting it. Have you got the same from LG, if so ask them for compatible battery. If not don't try such things. Better you get two batteries of lower mAH.

I had this same problem a while back. I had to take it to the Verizon store and they replaced the phone. The guy explained to me that it was a defect in the LG VX9800 phones.

Won't Turn On/Charge


when that happened to me it could have been caused by two possible problems:
1) water damage. If you know it's not water damage, it still could be because if you had your phone in the bathroom while having a shower, steam can seep in and if it's one thing I noticed about chocolate flips they get water damage really easily.
------>>> If that is the case then you have to take your battery off and take a really fine ground sand paper and rub along the contacts (like the copper that is on the battery and the phone that touch when you put ur battery in) and that will rub off any kind of oxidization (rust) and possibly make your phone work. It happened to mine and I did that and it was successful

2) you could not be turning your phone off regularly enough. Technically, you are supposed to turn your phone off every night when you go to bed to give your battery time to re-vamp. Also, I was speaking with a rep from telus and they were saying that you should also turn your phone off during the day, just for a minute then turn it back on again and apparently it recharges the battery as well.

Hope this helps!! It only comes from personal experience so it all depends on the reason why it's doing that.
