1. Check the battery and terminals of the phone.
2. check the LDI (liquid damage indicator) of the phone. It's in the battery compartment. If it's all white, then something must have happened to your phone--soaked in water or due to moisture.

NO THE PHONE SHOULD POWER RIGHT UP... THERE IS NO SPECIAL PROCEDURE TO GET THE PHONE TO TURN ON....... AS LONG AS THE PHONE HAS A CHARGED BATT THEN YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO TURN IT ON... I WOULD SAY THAT YOU HAVE A DAMAGED PHONE AND IF AT ALL POSSIBLE I WOULD SEND IT BACK TO WHERE I GOT IT IF ITS A REFURB MOD...THANKS

Scott when you plug your Motorola Luge in does it blink or have any sign of life from the light either at the top of the phone or backlight of the screen?

Lg vx6100 won't turn on or charge


There may be liquid damage present. First using a flashlight, inspect the battery contacts and data/charging socket for green mold/water damage. If nothing unusual is discovered you could disassemble and inspect the inner circuit boards for white residue that would be left behind from water calcium, clean the calcium from the circuit board with a slightly wet toothbrush and dry with compressed air or a hair dryer.

Battery dies within 24 hours


Hi, what makes the phone battery to die to quickly, is because the battery cell to weak and almost damaged completely and it's unable to power the phone for too long.

The battery cell is damaged.So you will need to replace the battery with a new battery.

You can go to any phone store around your area and get a new battery to replace the old battery.

When a new battery is is purchased, usually comes with a factory battery life whic is not yet fully charged.You will need to charge the battery for longer hour before use.

After purchasing a new battery, make sure you take time out to charge the battery properly for about 4 to 6 hour before use,otherwise battery cell can go flat again in no time.

Hope that helped.

Thanks for using fixya...

Battery & charging Problem on my LG KS360


Is the phone still under warranty? if so I would take it back to be replaced. It does sound like the battery is bad if loosing power that fast. You can overcharge the battery and that will lessen the battery life.I've done that before.
My LG VX9600 I'm able to change the screen settings for when it is charging, maybe yours was changed somehow, check your Settings & Tools / Display Settings. I hope this helps.

Wet Phone


I washed my husbands cell phone and it came back to life.... however, my niece got gatorade on her phone and it never did.

I think the sugar gets in there and distorts everything.

After she recycled it we joked that maybe we should have tried to put it in the washer for a quick cycle to see if we could ungum the insides.....
I wish we would have... worth a shot if it's already dead. GOOD LUCK!

Oh, it is too late now, but when the cell phone first gets wet, put it in a BAG OF RICE.... the rice will absorb the moisture... let it in there for 24-48 hours... this will help tremendously!
(without the battery in it of course)

My screen is blank it doesn't show anything


If it is a recent purchased phone, it would be best to leave it on charge for a while, after which you can switch the power button on. This should enable you to use your phone, hassle free.
