Question about LG VOYAGER VX10000 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Verizon Voyager will not chage or work on battery, fine on AC

Went to Verizon and they said my phone has water damage which I know is not true, phone not even 10days old. Unless it is so poorly made that talking in the rain can cause the damage. Anyway my phone works perfectly when plugged in and tt appears to charge the battery but within 5 minutes it says fully charged. Try to use on battery power and starts but immediately shuts off. Tried a new battery and same problem. It is as if it is not recognizing the battery is there. The phone is mint condition ,not even a scratch and would hate to replace if can get battery to work. HELP

Sounds like the battery connections may be corroded, try gently cleaning them with a pencil eraser. Clean the connections on the battery and in the phone. Water damage is indicated by a red indicator in the phone. if it is red it indicates water damage which is probably why they will not replace it. If you have insurance on the phone that may be an option for you.

Phone wont turn on


Your phone is detecting a not genuine battery.You should use a genuine battery for your phone to avoid this kind of warning.

The phone indicates water damage but there was no contact with water. The phone was otherwise working fine...randomly screen went white, phone shut off, water damage indicators were pink?


try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

LG Voyager won't reboot


Interesting, normally the screen only appears with water damage, which I am sure Verizons customer service has continued to tell you that is the cause without thinking the customer might not know for themselves, The only way to fix this is to got to a Verizon Wireless store and ask them to do what is called a software flash, now it may delete all your information on your device but at least it will work, if you need any more help with this let me know.

The headset port must be malfunctioning. If turning the phone off and removing the battery does not reset this.. Then contact Verizon and see if it's still under 1 year warranty. Or covered by insurance..

This is a manufacturer's defect. Before you go in though, Underneath the battery towards the bottom of the phone is a little white circle sticker. Mine has little x's on it. Anyway this sticker is on the inside panel of the battery too. These are water detection stickers that turn pink to red once they hit moisture. If you don't have insurance - make sure these aren't pink/red before reporting the issue to Verizon - Otherwise they will just say - that's what happens with water damage. (Ugh!)

LG VX8300 phone wet


I had this same problem and the problem actually is not with the phone. It means that the water damaged the battery. I purchased a new battery at a verizon store (because they have a 15 day return policy), popped it in and everything was hunky dory. Now I cannot say if there is any water damage to the rest of the phone, but when you are getting the error to use genuine battery, it is because that one is now damaged. New battery costs about 30 to 40 dollors

Hope this helps
