Question about Verizon Communications LG Chocolate Cell Phone - Black

1 Answer

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

Immediately dried it off, and as soon as got home, took the hair dryer to it. It has been sitting in rice for ~ 5 days. When I try to power up I get the message, " VX8550 downloader ---do not power off --.
The water spot marker on the battery is red and the X's on the phone marker are red with white background. Can this phone be saved? No the first phone I didn't get insrance on and it is lesss than 4 months old.
How do I disassemble it as my last resort?

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.

Got water damage and wont turn on


I dropped my phone in the toilet and surprisingly it still works. First I took the battery off and dried the phone and battery as much as I could. Then I took my blow dryer and a towel where I folded the towel in half and positioned the phone and the blow dryer under the towel and left it going for about an hour. The next day I took the phone and sat it in the sun until the inside moisture was gone. Then I charged it my phone has been working fine ever since and that was nearly two months ago.

I got it wet, I immediately removed the battery and let it dry thoroughly. It turned back on but displays a screen I've never seen with the Verizon logo and a quaint message that says " LGVX8500 Downloader...


well i guess its late, but every time one of my phones got wet i would take the battery off and dry it with a hair blower. ( the ones that women use to dry their hair). trust me , it works. just dont put it too close or it would burn it.

My wife's LG 8550 got wet and now won't power on


If the phone was still on while it got submerged, then you may be out of luck. Had it been off when it was submerged, using the rice trick might have worked. I would try removing the battery, and drying it out some more, but the damage may have already been done. Sorry!

Dropped phone in water


no much. probably it already has a short internal.
you can open the pone and try to use a hair dryer to dry out the phone, but I don't think that is going help.

Hi Eman,

Plug in you r phone with your USB to your PC and then Go to MY Computer and see the drive letter where your LG phone connect (removable disk), click there and see the sub folders inside and you will see a folder named MUSIC, here where you can save the mp3 (music) you wanted for your phone.

Hope it helps.
