Take a piece of metal like a bobby pin and rub it on the bottom of the phone where you plug the charger in. This will reset the phone. It work for me and saved me from buying a new phone.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!

Cant hear or be heard

Dear S quart. think that the problem is in the hardware, not in the software, that's why i think that you shouldn't ask that question in here, because you need a cell phone repair. Usually, that problem come from liquid inside the phone, may be your phone get wet bye the rain or fall in something wet, or, it became so old. But sometimes, you can easely fixe bye doing one unexpected thing, Changing the cage of your cell phone? I have my self a Nokia 3110c, it was hard to hear others when they call me or when do call them, but when i change the cage, i found some dust behind it, and the voice is more clear now and even higher.

My LG Voyager seems to be stuck in car kit mode, it did not get wet, (I read alll the blogs on getting wet is cause and the verzion rep said thats what it was, however, it didnt get wet, I copmpared the...

I just had this same problem. It is a hardware issue. Call verizon back explain the situation, they will call your phone to verify that the mic and speaker aren't working and they will send you a replacement within 2 days.

A temporary solution is plugging a wired headset into the phone and taking it out, it will work for a few hours.

Walkman gets heated for less time,frequently not responding to in and outgoing calls

Has the phone gotten wet at all? Anything at all - using it in the rain, having it in the bathroom whilst having a bath or shower, anything like that?

Sounds like something physical has gone wrong somewhere! If it's still under warranty see if you can get it repaired/replaced under warranty.

LG Phone has Car Kit Error. Didn't Get Wet. Can I Clear it

Dear customer,
                     To Remove “Car-kit” error there are few ways:               What worked for me as suggested by chemist  is using Calcium Chloride (CaCL2) as a drying agent since it pulls moisture out of the air, and according to Verizon, this car-kit error is caused by exposure to moisture. For the average person, you can find this in the form of “Prestone Driveway Heat Concentrated Ice Melter” (or other ice melter – check ingredients). 
1) Pour about 1 cup or so of CaCL2 in a small Tupperware container. 
2) Place a sheet of paper on top of the CaCL2 to protect the phone. 
3) Place the phone on top of the paper so as not to allow phone to touch CaCL2 (this is important). 
4) Place the lid tightly on the Tupperware container. 
5) Allow to sit overnight. 

In the morning, the “car-kit” error was gone! Yay! I could could hear my callers, they could hear me, and I could hear all my ringers.  

                         Other suggestions that  might work for you are. 

         Car Kit 
 To remove errors from phone: 
#1) press soft key for menu 
#2) then press 0 
#3) you'll have a service code prompt, type 000000 
#4) then type 2 (it should be field tests) 
#5) then type 4 (clear errors) 
#6) choose yes for clear errors 
#7) press clear once 
# type 8 (FCC test) 
#9) type one (pcs) 
#10) type one again (set channel) (mine shows 426 I don't know if theres a different channel for each phone.) 
#11) press clear 3 times and the phone will reset. 

                       FOR RESTTING 
Enter "Menu" 
Select "Settings" 
Select "Security" 
Enter "Lock Code" - Will default to last 4 digits of phone number or "0000" unless changed. 
Select "Reset Defaults" 
Press "Ok"

Plz rate this solution.. thank you..

Getting an error that says car kit on phone

Mine said car kit and I kept reading it was because it got wet, and my phone didn't get wet. I noticed a little corrosion where I plug the phone in starting to form and I rubbed a little off and the car kit on the main screen went away.

I can't hear you !!!!

Car Kit doesn't necessarily mean the phone got wet, but it does mean that there's a problem with the charging port. Most likely there's a lot of corrosion in there, and if you clean it out then it may get the phone working again.

The best way to clean your charge port is with some contact cleaner and a toothbrush.

If the problem persists after that, then you'll want to bring it in to a store and get the phone serviced or replaced.

Car kit

there is no setting to find. clean charger port with rubbing alcohol and a tooth brush, be gentle. turn off - let dry and recharge for 2 hrs. worked for me. pain I know. taking battery out will not help. but should check battery conections to see if they are clean,do the same as above. if purple you have water damage. verizon warranty is void if this is the case.
