Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

I have a LG Dare cell. I have had no problems with it at all. But for some reason its not charging. I also have anothe phone, same kind, the speaker has blown out. I need to fin some to fix the bad speaker, and figure out why mine is not charging. The history on my phone is this: I found this phone in a puddle, submerged in water. I took it home, took it apart, placed it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I put it back together, turned it on , it worked. I ran to the store, hooked charger up, and its worked fine for over a year. I had the phone flashed from verizon to cricket. Do u have any ideas? Drew

Hi Drew,
Couple possibilities. The battery could be dead and need replaced. I assume you have tried the other battery and or charged it with the other phone? Does the charger work on the other phone? that would rule out the charger. try cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser and make sure the contacts on the charge plug and in the phone are clean also. Water is very bad for electronics and even though you dried it out there will still be corrosion inside. Worst case is take it apart and check it out if nothing else has remedied your problem. It is already broke so you cannot make it worse.

My lg dare (vx9700) is not turning on and when you plug in the charger it doesn't charge or anything. is there a way to fix this problem

HI lilg97 you can clean the charging port out. If you have another micro charger you can use that one to see if the phone is taking the chaerge. It could be your charger . If it is your charger you will need to replace the charger. Also you can take it to the nearest verizon and they will check to see if you qualify for their lg replacement program.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

LG dare is only charging halfway

From your description of the problem, it appears your phone's battery needs to be replaced. Because of the danger of damage to your phone from a bad battery, you should replace your battery immediately.

Your phone does not allow recalibration of your battery - as battery consumption is preset from the factory.

Thank you for contacting Fixya!

Lg dare won't charge

Best thing to do is take it to a dealer pref the one you bought it from.Try a new battery, if not try and charge the phone with a different charger.

if its not the battery or charger then its likely to be a phone fault.
I would either request money back or new phone.

Hope it helps.

The earpiece isn't working

Thats a hardware problem. It will require one speakerphone on top and a microphone at bottom both come in combo. As an expert I'd suggest you replace both. They come in combo and same charge for replacing. Rest all up to your decision.

Cant program lg dare

Well, assuming that you use Verizon...

Your phone should have come with a "Stop! Read This First" sheet. Mine was yellow.

Basically, you charge the battery, then dial *228
Follow the prompts.

If you use another service provider...
Call your service provider!
