Question about LG Chocolate Clamshell VX8600 Cellular Phone
My LG VX8600 was working perfectly fine and then suddenly today it turned off and now when I press the power button, the verizon wireless screen turns on for as long as I press the button and then it dies again when I release. I tried taking out the battery and leaving it out and also charging the phone and the same thing happens. Any ideas on what the problem is and what I can do about it?
When that happened to me it could have been caused by two possible problems:
1) water damage. If you know it's not water damage, it still could be because if you had your phone in the bathroom while having a shower, steam can seep in and if it's one thing I noticed about chocolate flips they get water damage really easily.
------>>> If that is the case then you have to take your battery off and take a really fine ground sand paper and rub along the contacts (like the copper that is on the battery and the phone that touch when you put ur battery in) and that will rub off any kind of oxidization (rust) and possibly make your phone work. It happened to mine and I did that and it was successful
2) you could not be turning your phone off regularly enough. Technically, you are supposed to turn your phone off every night when you go to bed to give your battery time to re-vamp. Also, I was speaking with a rep from telus and they were saying that you should also turn your phone off during the day, just for a minute then turn it back on again and apparently it recharges the battery as well.
Hope this helps!! It only comes from personal experience so it all depends on the reason why it's doing that.

I just got this phone today and went to charge it and when I plugged the charger in it beeped crazy at me and wouldn't charge... eventually the battery died and I still can't figure out how to make the charger work.. according to my friend who has the same phone it was plugged in correctly

I've went through this problem with four different LG Chocolates. The manufacturer puts these phones togethers rather poorly. The main problem i had is the port in which you plug your charger into breaks. The only real solution is to replace the part if they even have any more, or replace the phone. When the port breaks it makes it impossible to transfer your contacts and other information to the replacement phone.
