Randomly says "car kit"

I do daycare and I babysit a 15 month old and she somehow finds my phone and puts it in her mouth. Eventually it says "car kit" and I cannot use it. How do I fix this?

Very smple, Switch off your Moble, Take out the Battery, and wash the connectors (where you insert yor charger etc.)with a toothbrush and Alchohol, dry it with a Hair Dryer. It will be aLL right.

Locked out of my phone, my 3 year old put a password on it somehow.

Try 12345. This phone has a habit of locking randomly. If that doesn't work, take the battery out, let it sit overnight and then try the 12345 again in the morning.

My daughter has an lg c300 mobile phone when i try to ring her or anyone tries to ring her she can hear us but we cannot hear her. any solutions


The mouth piece of the lg c300 phone is bad. It is the mouth piece that will enable you to hear from her.

You need to replace the mouth piece of the phone. Open the phone the with a screw driver, the mouth piece is located at the place were normally put her mouth when she talks on phone. Remove it, take to the store and my the exact type of mouth piece to replace with the old one.
Couple the phone and use it. i am sure it will work.

Note, before replacing the mouth piece, clean the pannel where the mouth piece is place with methylated spirit and allow it to dry. couple the phone and try if it works if the problem continues, then try the first method given above.

Thanks for your patronage

Easiest solution is air trapped in the cooling system. Make sure you have bled all the air out of it. If it has been properly bled then it might be your head gasket or a crack in the head itself.

Set to car kit.

I reinserted the wall charger a couple of times and it made the "car kit" go away. My guess is that two pins in the little connector inside the phone somehow got shorted together (dust or something). I saved the butter knife soloution for my last ditch attempt as I wasn't sure that shorting all the pins wouldn't increase the chances of damage to the phone. The post above definitely go the creative juices flowing since we had no idea how it got in "car kit" mode.

Lg cell phone vx3450

This is an old post but in case anybody searches and finds it...The infamous "car kit" mode on LG phones is a problem I had. Your service provider will claim the phone got wet (they will look at indicators in the battery compartment and on the battery itself that turn blue in the presence of moisture. Trouble is, they will eventually turn blue just from humidity even if the phone wasn't given a bath). Search the web; there are one or two forum threads with many suggested solutions (such as resetting error codes in the service menu, scrubbing out the battery connector with a toothbrush, plugging/unplugging the actual car kit connector, etc.). None of these suggestions gave a permanent fix (YMMV) for me and I eventually bought a new phone.

Phone screen says "car kit"

MY LG flip just did the same thing. I took it in and they said there was some corrosion in the battery charger area from water. They had to replace my entire phone. I have a 15 month old that plays with it.
