Question about LG Chocolate 3 Cell Phone

1 Answer

Keypad doesn't work

I have a LG Chocolate 3 and the keypad (in fact, the entire base of the phone with all the buttons) isn't responsive. I'm not sure how this happened, but it could possibly be water damage. The buttons on the top of the phone work, though.

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.

How do i unlock my lg 8600 flip


  • Flip open the phone so the keypad is exposed and press any button to wake the phone up from sleep mode.
  • 2 Enter the four digit unlock code using the phone's keypad. The default code is the last four digits of your cell phone number.
  • 3 Press the "OK" button to submit the code and unlock the phone.
Forgotten Code
  • 1 Turn the phone over and remove the battery cover and battery. Press down on the upper plastic edge of the cover and slide it in a downwards motion. The plastic cover will give way to the battery which can be pulled out of the phone.
  • 2 Locate the sticker on the phone hidden behind the battery. Write down the last four digits of the ESN DEC number.
  • 3 Replace the battery and battery cover and turn the phone on by pressing and holding down the "Power" button.
  • 4 Flip open the phone so the keypad is exposed.
  • 5 Enter the last four digits of the ESN DEC number. Press the "OK" button to submit the code and unlock the phone.
Power the phone on and select the "OK" button. This will trigger the phone to ask for the password.

  • 2 Press "OK." Sometimes this is simply all it requires. If not, move on.
  • 3 Enter the last four digits of the phone's number. If this doesn't work, continue to the next step.
  • 4 Enter "#4357" or "*4357." "4357" stands for "LOCK" on a traditional telephone's alphabetic keypad translation. This is the default unlock code for certain LG telephones.

    I cant get the lights on my touch keypad to go off on my lg chocolate. It runs my battery down pretty quickly. How do I fix this?


    i think your LG chocolate has a defective sensor.. try placing a magnet at the back of the lcd when you flip it.. the light on the touch keypad must turn off.. if it turn off the magnet must be missing.. if it doesn turn off the sensor is broken
