SOURCE: Cell phone won't turn on
From what I have determined from tinkering with it, the problem is the Display connections. It appears that the connection sockets are simply weak and do bit "snap" a they should. My answer thus far is pretty easy. Open the phone, place the upper display side flat on a piece of cloth or something else thin but not course in order to prevent scuff marks. Now firmly hit/slap down on the back side of the face plate to insure it and the pieces inside it are in place and secure. works well for me, just ask the phone :-)

I have an En-V 2, same thing happened.
What worked for me was dabbing a Q-tip in nail polish remove and just rubbing it along the 4 contacts on the battery as well as the 4 contacts inside the phone.
This is an old trick that use to work for the Nintendo game system cartridges when the game would **** out.
Give it a shot! I just saved $50 and a trip to the Verizon store!!!!!! (We know how that can be...hehehe)

SOURCE: LG ENV randomly shuts off
I have had the same problem. It would shut down 3 or 4 times a day. I always had to check the phone to make sure it was on - very annoying. Here is what I did to fix my problem:
I took the battery out and noticed that the 4 battery terminals did not have the shiny brass/gold appearance that I thought that they should have. I took a Q-tip with some alcohol and cleaned the 4 battery terminals on the battery and the phone. I put the battery back in and the phone has not shut off (by itself) for 4 straight days now.
I would give this a try before any other drastic action.

I'm on my 2nd rumour 2. Both now the camera has froze the phone where i have to take the battery out. Ive returned one, and now Im about to return the second one. Anyone else had this problem?

This only worked as long as I shut the keyboard gently. The problem really seems to be mechanical. When sliding shut, the battery is jostled just enough to lose contact and shut the phone down. Placing a folded piece of paper between the battery and the non contact side of the phone to increase pressure slightly.
Hope this works for you as well
