Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

My touch screen is messing up!

When I press the down key it pulls up my call log then calls them with out me touching it, or it will get stuck on constantly scrolling down or the clear button will not work. I will close my phone and it goes back to normal, but five minutes later it is doing the same thing.

    I've had the same problems, also my call button will not work - making it impossible to switch to a waiting call mid-call.

    had the same problem -- got the phone replaced, Verizon said not repairable.

  • Anonymous Feb 10, 2008

    I'm seeing the same thing with mine. The most common thing that I see is that as soon as I slide the screen up to reach the keypad it will immediately jump to my recent contact list and then proceed to call the first contact on it (as if the call button is being continually pressed) I also get the "constant scroll" symptom mentioned in the original post. These problems happen quite frequently, but don't seem to follow any pattern that I can see.

    When i slide my phone up it goes right to my pictures without me touching anything. And my touch screen doesn't work at all. Its pretty much terrible! I have like ten texts waiting for me and i can't read them! I didn't even get it wet.

  • lg_crapolate Mar 22, 2008

    Usually when I take my phone out of my pocket, it starts dialing the last number called or received when I open it. Repeated presses of the "END" button are required to stop it. It fights me and tries to keep dialing the same number.

    Verizon is being jerks about replacing my phone unless I can reproduce the problem in front of them. Any ideas about how to reliably reproduce this problem?

    My touch screen will not work I can answer calls but I can not phone anyone or text anyone at all. I can slide to unlock or to answer the phone but that all what is wrong.

    My touch screen is not working. How can I retrieve my contacts from my phone?

  • mammas_gurl Oct 04, 2008

    When i try to push my message button it vibrates like 5 times and then says that thing about the speaker being turned on .. sometimes it will eventually go to the message sceen .. but hardly ever. Sensitivity is on low and it didnt even get wet .. i also put my phone in my pocket and it scratched the **** out of the screen .. Also when someone calls the voices go in and out and gets really low then really loud.

    My call button doesn't work but the rest of the touch screen is fine?

  • Anonymous Dec 31, 2008

    my entire touch screen is not working now, before it was similar problems to all of these, and now i can only call people using speed dial or holding down the last number, and i can answer calls. thats it. this phone really blows, everyone i know whose had one, has had problems with it.

  • Anonymous Jan 17, 2009

    it is rediculous. it started out just being the left arrow key would be delayed and now my entire touch screen wont work. sometimes i have found biting it for a little bit helps i dont know why but it temporarily allows me to use my touchscreen but now that doesn't work anymore.

  • led23187 Feb 04, 2009

    i've had my phone for over 6 months now and the touch screen recently went haywire. like someone said before me, it vibrates multiple times and then pulls up random menus like my contacts. it doesn't happen all the time but enough that i can't text anyone without it spazzing out so i can't finish. i gets regular wear and tear but i'm pretty careful with it...

  • Anonymous Mar 08, 2009

If i turn on my celphone the bootup shows only touch pro 2 then does not load


this is a quick fix but unfortunatlly all the info will be lost on the phone. its called a hard button reset this helps when its stuck on the main screen, bootscreen or in this case the touch pro 2 screen. i found this info at http://forums.t-mobile.com/t5/T-Mobile-Touch-Pro2/touch-pro-2-stuck-in-boot-screen/m-p/186641#M1996.


: While the TP2 is turned off, press and hold down the Talk/Send key and the End key and press the Power/On key simultaneously. A screen that comes up has a warning, then tells you to press the Volume Up button to reset to factory fresh. Try it, if you haven't yet.

When i turned on the leapfrog and asked me to log in my name it doesn't let me go in when i press it with the leapfrog pen


the screen needs to be re-calibrated. Do this: while powering on the Leapster, hold down the ? key. If it's been worn off, it's the round key on the left hand side above the t-arrow keys and it's the middle button. A new screen will come up that lists Base Info Cart 1 Info, Cart 2 Info, Cart 3 Info. In the right hand corner is a "A" that you can touch with pen beside it, it says "Touch Calib" Touch on that.It will say starting...then in the upper left hand corner there is a +. touch it with pen. it will move to bottom left hand corner. Touch it with pen. It will move to right bottom corner. touch with pen. It will move to upper right hand corner. Touch with pen. It will move to the center of the screen. Touch with pen. Repeat until you come back to the Base Info screen. You're DONE! Power off and on again and you should be all set! Good luck!!

Touch screen not functioning properly. Press one key, get another


The touch screen on Garmin Nuvi 660 is not working at all. It turns on, but when I touch the screeen, nothing happens. Could it be the battery. It was low, so I charged it for 45minutes, then the gps screen dimmed and turned off after just 10-15 minutes of "messing with it"

Touch panel is not working


needs to be replaced , if it does not respong to ur taps have u tried aligning the screen does it work at all or no area is responsive on screen then u can try hard resetting it first but after that it will be guaranteed that ur touch panel is faulty which seems like to me

but one thing u shud now all data will be lost in factory reset process and if u touch panel is faulty u will stuck up in initial aligning process so pls backup first b4 going ahead sync contacts and sms calender an stuff then try this

hard rest factory default settings = when ur set is switched off press both buttons call and end key and then press power button on upside of pda for like 5 sec screen will appear asking to format all data take out ur card if u dont want to format that now confirm by pressing the centre action button in 4 side joystick and go

if u are stuck at align process then it is now pretty sure that ur TOUCH PANEL / also called DIGITIZER is faulty u can get it replaced around 60 $ or so

pls rate me fixya for my diagnosis if u like

LG CU920 VU Touch Screen Not Responding


I had the same issue and was pissed, not to mention i didn't have a warranty and it was only a couple months old. I actually bought another phone and because I had nothing to lose, took my phone apart and replaced the touchscreen myself for about $30. If you have ever changed out a PC part, you could replace this screen. It's not really that difficult and there are guides out there. The screen itself is just a thin piece of plastic that lays over the lcd screen and is kinda "glued" into the frame of the phone. If you look at ur phone and follow the frame around, that's the piece ur replacing - but you have to disconnect all the wires from the inside. Now mines works like a charm -- and I'm stuck with two phones :~( PS: STOP USING THE STYLUS!
