Question about LG VX5200 Cellular Phone

Phone only works while plugged in

My LG VX5200 only works when plugged in. As soon as I unplug it it goes blank and will turn back on. After I plug it in I get the battery charged message. I then have to hold down the power button to turn the phone on. While it is plugged in the battery symbol continues to flash. I have tested the battery by putting it in another phone exactly like this one and it the battery works. The phone does the same thing when plugged into a car charger also.

Works Only When Plugged In

me too. just started today. i had let the battery run down all the way. i tried taking the battery out but that didn't help.

I also accidentally dropped it in my coffee this afternoon, after the battery ran out, so that might have something to do with it.
