Question about LG Chocolate Clamshell VX8600 Cellular Phone

Won't Turn On/Charge

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?

Re: Won't Turn On/Charge

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.

Re: Won't Turn On/Charge

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.

I've had my LG Dare for about a year now, and just recently it has been very irritating trying to turn it on. The phone flat out will not turn on. I connect it to the charger and it doesn't say the normal...

I'm having the same problem! It started today again. I've have this problem on and off for a while. Then all of a sudden the phone works fine. Try removing the battery...let it sit for a bit, then try to turn it on. Its worked for me before but is not working today. Sorry, I know how frustrating it is!

VX9400 problem

I had the same issue, but knowing some things about computers, I took the battery out for about 3 minutes or so to let the phone lose any charge it had. Then I put the battery back in, held the send button in for a minute then pushed the power button and it turned back on fine.
