I have a 6 month old Voyager. I didn't drop it or get it wet, it just stopped booting. The VERIZONwireless logo just flashes endlessly on the screen. I have removed the battery and charged the phone fully (the display screen will show the "Battery Charging" message when it's plugged in via USB or wall plug for a charge, but that's the only thing it displays besides the VERIZONwireless logo).
Interesting, normally the screen only appears with water damage, which I am sure Verizons customer service has continued to tell you that is the cause without thinking the customer might not know for themselves, The only way to fix this is to got to a Verizon Wireless store and ask them to do what is called a software flash, now it may delete all your information on your device but at least it will work, if you need any more help with this let me know.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The charge adapter maybe faulty. If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.
Is your LG unit new, or have you had it some time? If the later, it could be capacitor failure, which can cause all kinds of issues. I had an LG DVD HDD recorder which had a similar problem, except the LG logo didn't flash on screen. Does your unit have a hard disk? The prblem with mine was that the machine would not boot. Eventually, even th date display went, and it would not start. Replacing a bank of capapcitors solved he problem. I didn't have the equipment, but a repair engineer did it for £25in less than an hour.
I bet you got help and fixed it already, but I had the same problem. Just before it stopped working, I dropped it in a puddle by a curb and I thought that killed it. I didn't realize that my battery was dead! That was it, so charge it!
I just had this same problem. It is a hardware issue. Call verizon back explain the situation, they will call your phone to verify that the mic and speaker aren't working and they will send you a replacement within 2 days.
A temporary solution is plugging a wired headset into the phone and taking it out, it will work for a few hours.
The EPA logo and the Fullscreen logo all are stored in the bios. That is the update you download from the manufacturer's website contains both the logos in it. So if you mod the bios update and then apply the patch the next time when you boot your computer you will see the new logo.
***BEWARE A BAD FLASH CAN RENDER YOUR MOTHERBOARD USELESS****
The mods are in two sections. If you only want one or the other, just skip to that section.
1. Make Sure the motherboard uses the Award Bios.
2. Either Download the new Bios from the Manufacturer website or get it from the system Bios directly by backing it up. For backing up and updating bios, I use WinFlash 1.51 (there might be a newer version, I just stick with what works!).
3. Now we have the bios file on disk. Now make a new bitmap image with any of your favorite imaging software. Make sure that the final bitmap image you have created is 640*480 and 256 colors.
4. Now use the CBROM Utility to change the boot logo in the bios file. This is done by using Command Prompt
c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /logo logo.bmp
5. Now to check whether the bios file was updated correctly. Run the Award bios editor. (make sure the dlls in the plugin directory are moved to the folder with awbedit.exe)
6. Load the bios.bin in the Award bios editor and check in the left hand list for Fullscreen Logo and that it does show your logo. If okay your bios is now ready to be flashed.
7. Now use Winflash utility, load the bios.bin and click on update .
8. Reboot the computer and the bios logo is changed.
Procedure for the EPA logo is just same except the few things.
Image size is : 138*84 16 Colors and 72 pixels/inch
Command for adding to bios file is : c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /epa epalogo.bmp
When you check for the EPA logo in the Award Bios Editor, the colors will not be same as those that you choose but when you flash the bios and reboot, it will show the original colors.
Never try to flash bios without a uninterruptible power supply (UPS). Close all the programs before flashing from Windows. ALWAYS wait for flash program to notify you for reboot, DO NOT EVER EVER reboot when you think it is ready or taking too long. Mucking up the flash CAN MAKE YOUR MOTHERBOARD GARBAGE!!! You have been warned!! I hope that this helps, Ken
If your phone is less then a year old bring it to a store that is owned by Verizon. You could also call 1-800-256-4646, then ask for the FRU (Factory Replacement Unit) department. They will get you a replacement phone.
