Question about LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Bad Cell Phone Charger connection

Hi, I've had this Verizon LG EnV VX 8900 for about 5 months, and lately my charger (the cord as well as the cell phone outlet) has been giving me trouble. I don't know exactly why, but it's like I plug in the charger yet my phone just sits there and doesn't charge up, and I don't know why! And then the cord outlet in the bottom of my phone became physically loose, which is not good, and unexpected since I haven't treated it carelessly. For the first couple of weeks since when this happened, I just ever-so-slightly tweaked or moved the charger cord around in the cell phone charger outlet until I got the correct...angle, i guess? And at that point, my phone would charge. But today my battery has died and I've been here sitting with my phone for at least half an hour trying to find the right angle at which to plug my cell charger into my EnV and it simply will NOT charge, and I'm honestly starting to worry. After looking for online advice, I came across several other reports of customers with the same model cell phone and identical problems, claiming that the EnV is a faulty phone/design that should be recalled, and that the only way to fix it is to pay the 50 dollar deductible and just get a new phone. I'm a pre-med student (with no cell phone insurance...I couldn't afford it) who has literally no extra money in my wallet right now, and there's no way I can afford a new phone...I didn't think I'd need to buy another one 5 months into getting this one! I desperately need my cell phone for academic reasons (I'm applying for a prestigious campus position and I NEED my phone working in case I am contacted about the position). What should I do?

    I'm sorry, I meant to write VX 9900 as the description for my EnV, in case that helps. Please help me, I honestly need some serious help with this, please.

    if you look at the connection area on the bottom of the phone, its most likely the metal became enlarged or the thing in the middle is loose.

    i suggest a new phone. if you have insurance, complain and they might just give you a new one.

If you go onto Ebay, you can get something called a universal cell phone charger. This plugs into the wall and charges the battery directly, rather than using the phone port. They cost between one and three dollars. I had the same problem and was told to do this and it works very, very well. Good luck!

Loose connection to LG phone charger

use something like a small screwdriver to bend the two metal contacts inside the phone socket up a little so they press more firmly into the mating contacts in the channels on the charger plug.

if the charger plug wants to fall out, you can bend up a cutout/tab in the top metal shell part a little so the plug "clicks in" a little better.

it's a bad design.

Battery Won't Stay Charged

well if you have recieved new batteries and they wont stay charged then the problem isn't the batteries apparently. It could possibly be that your charger has gone bad and isn't charging your battery all the way. I suggest buying a new charger and it should fix your problem and if it's not your charger then it must be the outlet supplying voltage to the charger going bad. More than likely you need a new charger cause it seems like its not getting the voltage it needs to charge your phone.

Wont charge

your charging port is loosely connected to *********** board. You need to go to a repair shop and get it fixed.

How do you dismantle the end of the charger?

Absolutely not. You must use the LG charger, or you might get an improper amount of current into the phone and toast it.
