This happened to me too. A temporary fix is turn off your phone and put it in front of a really cold air conditioner for about ten minutes. Then turn it on but make sure you keep it in front of the ac to keep it working. What happened is your sim card reader has a thermal problem so you will need to take it in unless you want to spend all your time in front of the ac (which will get expensive...)

It says insert smartchip and I can only access emergency screen


if you are trying to use the phone with a sim card that you dont usually use with that phone it is most likely locked to another phone take it to your service provider and ask them to unlock it to use on your lg vu . If its your regular sim card then sim card reader is malfunctioning . you will need to have it fixed

My LG Vu today decided to say "Insert Smartchip" and I only have the "emergency" button available. I have tunred it around and around, and nothing works, any other ideas?


I had mine in upside down and that caused it to say insert smartchip.....could be a back sim card. If you have another phone test out the sim card in that phone or have your service provider help check the sim card

It asks for me to Insert my SmartChip when it's already in there, what do I do?


Turn off the phone. Take the battery and Sim Card out. Make sure there is no dust or dirt of where the Sim Card goes. Blow air (from your mouth) of where the Sim Card goes. Sometimes rubbing a soft pencil eraser on the Sim Card contact points can help. Then place the Sim Card back in the phone. Make sure it is in the right position; copper contacts facing downward. Put the battery back in your phone. Turn it on, and see if the smartchip rejected goes away.

If not you may need to contact your Phone Provider’s Tech Support to troubleshoot and confirm that you may need a PUK reset code to register or you may need a new Sim Card, as they do fail from time to time.
