    I dropped my phone (for about the 10th time) and the main screen turned white.  The front screen does not light at all.




    The phone will still turn on and off and will even ring when a call or text comes through, but I can't see anything.  It doesn't make sounds when I push buttons.


    I took the back off to see if some wires had come undone - didn't see anything immediately, but I will keep looking.

    I opened up the back of the phone (#0 philips) and reattached the orange cable.  The screen is still white.

On the 8300, the LCD is connected woth a flex cable to the main board. It might have loosened at the connection oint or you might have damaged your LCD. Either way the phoe needs to be opened up and checked physically.

I have a 13 year old daughter, andhave taken her phone away from her. She locked the phone, and I need to see what is on it. How can I unlock the phone? It is a LG VX8300. Thanks


Sometimes, the last four digits of the phone number will not work as the unlock code, especially if your daughter has changed the code. Even if the phone is locked, dial *228, then press 1 when prompted by the automated system. When it tells you: "Your phone has been programmed successfully", press "Done" or "OK". Once the phone has powered off, then back on, (it will do this automatically) the lock code for the phone will be changed to the last four digits of the phone number. For example, if the phone number is (315) 123-0101, your lock code, after following the above instructions, will now be "0101". Also, you do NOT need to know the lock code that your daughter had for this to work. After the phone has powered back on automatically, you will be able to use the phone normally. *228 does not delete text messages, contacts, etc, but it WILL give you access to a phone which has been locked, without requiring you to know the code that she has set.

My screen is white!


Many users of the Pantech phones have been experiencing the same thing. There are a lot of default in this phone. I would suggest you to return it to Pantech and try to get a software upgrade (if there is!). Although, I would recommend you NOT to use it. Even if the Pantech exchange it for a new one, the same problem will happened in a day or two.

Dial *228 option 1 and try again. If that doesn't work then you have to call your wireless carrier and have a data feature refresh done to your line.

Revert back to 1x only


EV does not drop calls as it is not used for calls. EV is ONLY a broadband network .. In other words, it does not transmit voice ... Only data ;)

If your dropping calls then try turning the phone off ..then back on then dial *228 then option 1 and see how it does then.

If your calling other cell phones and it's dropping calls then it's 50/50 as to who's at fault there.

Unlock LGVX8300 passcode


Try dialing *228, then pressing 1. This reprograms the phone to factory defaults, making your security (lock) code the same as the last four digits of your phone number. For example, if your phone number is (315) 123-0101, then after following the above instructions, your passcode is now "0101". *228 is accessible EVEN when the phone has been locked. This method does NOT delete contacts or change your phone number. All of that information remains the same as before you dialed *228. Also, you do NOT need to remember your old passcode for this to work.

Phone won't turn on


I had to return mine to the Verizon store and they gave me a new one. This is what happened. I just received the phone from the mail brand new from the Verizon Wireless online store. However, I forgot to charge the battery when i turned it on to activate it. I did start charging it soon after though, and I dialed the *228 and hit 1 to program it. I turned it off, but I tried to turn it on later, and it wouldn't turn on. I let it charge over night, but still I was anble to turn it on. I'm thinking whatever programming was done killed the phone. When i went to the store, they put a new battery and it still wouldn't turn on. So they gave me a new phone.

My phone displays a white main screen


My Solution: Heat it up by just sitting on it or holding it in your hands// Take the battery out and back in/ Try keeping the battery out of it for a full day
My Story :) My mom dropped the phone in the dishes because she was drunk haha, I quickly took out the battery, but when the next day came by I looked at the phone and saw the same problem everyone here has. I kept replacing the battery on the hope it would just magically fix itself. Now 2 days from when it dropped in water, I kept flipping it, replaced the battery again (just taking it out and back in) after I sat on it a while, possibly the heat somehow helped it to work again.. I'm amazed it works haha, it was in the water fully submerged for half a min when I had to snatch it out of the dishes But, it is most likely that I took the battery out, the battery is the thing that ruins electronics, just remember to take it out if you drop it in water. Good luck. If worst comes to worst and your going to buy a new phone, maybe try using a blow dryer on it for a little bit **or just do this in the first place**
