Let your phone die, and then charge it up and see if it happens again. If it does, try to have it repaired or exchanged.

I turn on my phone it goes to a screen saying Emergency Download


Wait does it say emergency mode only? If so this has happened to me many times on this phone.

Turn off the phone and remove the battery. In there will be you should see the SIM card. Pull out the SIM and put it back in. Put back the battery and turn on your phone.

For some reason on these phones the SIM card gets dislodged. When it does the phone won't work because the SIM card is what makes the phone your number etc. All cell phones, that have no service otherwise will be able to call 911. Apparently it is a law, so that is why your phone is on emergency mode. Without the SIM card the phone is a phone without service and will therefore only work in emergency mode.

I hope this is what you meant.

I'm stuck on the yellow screen thats says "refreshing"


This could be a software or a hardware fault. If you recently changed the firmware or made other modifications to the file-system using EFS Explorer (or similar software), it may well be software related.

If you think the problem may be software related, try using Emergency Download mode to reflash your phone.
Possible faults to check with the hardware include:
  • The battery is empty, damaged or worn out. Try taking the battery out and connection your phone using the USB cable only.
  • The contacts of the battery are damaged or the battery has leaked.
  • The screen may be damaged and will not display a picture - check if the lower buttons light up when the End Call (Red) key is pressed.
In the case of a hardware fault or if you are unsure, contact the store from where your purchased your phone on for advice on the best action to take.


Emergency Download Mode __________________________________________ What is Emergency Download Mode? Emergency Download Mode allows you to connect your phone to your computer and use flashing tools (e.g. LGDMP) to restore or change your firmware.

_________________________________________________________
How do I access Emergency Download Mode?
  1. Make sure your phone is off.
  2. Hold down the Green (Call) + C (Delete) + Red (End Call) + Image Stabiliser (Lock) buttons
  3. Your phone should turn on and go straight to a screen saying 'Emergency Download' without first showing the usual LG Logo.
  4. You can now connect your phone using the USB cable and use Flashing tools to fix your phone.
_____________________________________________________________


Use the EFS explorer mode and check the maps.

If there is a map named TOTO and a map LGAPP.

First rename the map LGAPP in to any name you want or change
it like this AAAA.

Secend Rename the map TOTO to LGAPP.
Delete the first map you renamed the LGAPP.

When your finished choose disconnect and wait until the process is done.

You will see the phone starts up in a normal mode if not then
you've to reflash the phone.


I hope this will helps.
