9 out of 10 your charger is not good anymore. Try another charger (similar looking chargers that can plug in will NOT work). You must use charger for your specific LG VX8300 (I used my car charger). And it works. I went to Verizon Wireless and they told me charger went bad.

Take the battery out of the phone and reinstall it and try to power it up. This happens a few times a month for me, and it works to restart it.

My Lg Xenon is not charging properly. It says full battery after i charge it but then when i talk to someone on the phone after about 20 mins it starts beeping saying it has low battery and eventually...

I had a similar problem with a brand new LG Xenon. The battery charger said it was charging but the phone didn't charge. When the battery life on the phone died the phone would not turn on with the charger. I plugged it into my USB port on my laptop and the phone fully charged for real. I got 4 days before I had to recharge it again. Try USB cable to a PC to charge phone. Charger is probably bad. I am getting a replacement and will see if that works.

My LG enV VX9900 Cellular Phone is overheated

Definitley your batery had developed reverse polarity and so it will not reain or take in charge. hence the battery will consume more power resulting in this message and it might alsoo be dangerous to keep this on. I would advise you to put in new battery and do the intial charging as required. Keep it on for 8-12 hours of chrage then discharge offf in use fully and rechage again. Repeat this for three time before your battery becomes fully functional. hope this helps. Good day

Car kit

This can mean your charger port is dirty or damaged. Look in the charger port, see if there are any little pins out of place, (Take out battary). and then try pushing them back in place. If that does not work, take it into store and have them check it. I have the blue one I love it, (even though every one else thinks its old) lol If it can't be fixed hopefully the tech can get you info out. The LG phones have been doing this "car kit" thing for many generations of LGs. I wish it was an EZr fix but it usally means something is wrong. Good Luck

I cant get my LG VX8300 verison wireless cell phone off of car kit.

I had the same problem. I used a hair dryer to dry out the port of the charger on the phone. Then I put the charger back in overnight, and in the morning the Car Kit was off of it. I was surprised it was so simple.

Wont fully power up after going roaming

Sounds like a serious glitch in the phone's roaming mode. If the photos and numbers are in the internal memory, you can't get em off if the phone won't power up, no matter what you do. Have you tried the phone back in your home networks? Try taking the battery out and then putting it back in and powering it up when you're not in a roaming area.

Lg vx8100 error message on screen: use genuine battery. power off 10 sec cuts off

Not exactly a solution. I tried leaving it off overnight and tried it several times after removing and inserting the batteries. I also cleaned the contacts with contact cleaner and a Q tip. It did not fix it. But I just left it off for 2 days meaning to go to the Verizon store and get it fixed or replaced. But I turned it on now and it fixed itself! Model VX8300. Maybe the contact cleaning did it but it had to dry more. You can use a Q Tip dipped in a cup of water with a teaspoon of Mr.Clean. But then rinse it with a water wet Q tip and then dry it with a paper towel. I used contact cleaner.
