Lg vx8300 verizon says car kit display have no


Car kit mode means one of two things, first it could have a piece of lint or paper stuck in the charge port making it think there is a car kit plugged in, or second it could be that some moisture got into the port and its giving a indication that something is plugged in. and thats why you're not getting any sound. There is no specific setting to turn on or off 'car kit' mode you can use a paper clip or something and mess with the port a little bit to see if 'car kit' goes away or replace phone

Car kit mode


Car kit mode is usually caused by debris in the phone's cable connector (at the bottom of the phone). The debris causes two or more contacts to be electrically connected to each other, causing the phone to think it's connected to a car kit. Remove the battery from the phone and clean the cable connector contacts with some rubbing alcohol and the corner of a towel. Also, try using an opened paperclip to scrape the contacts in the connector, this will remove any corrosion that may have built up.
Also this can happen due to shortening of the 2 power pins at the bottom. Try using an alluminium piece cone shaped and toggle the pins. They will come out. Car Kit mode comes sometimes due to moisture in the power pins, shortening it.

Same problem as this person.


Hello

Im sorry to hear about your problem.

If this problem happened directly after getting water on your phone then it could have been a result of shorting out and putting the phone in car kit mode (the mode for when you are using it along with a car kit) . If this is the case then your phone can't be fixed.

If the problem did not appear after the water damage then you may want to refer to the manual to find instructions on switching the phone off of cat kit mode.

Post back if you have any further questions. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Car kit mode is on and I wanted to know to take it off.


I just called LG and they said that when the CAR KIT mode comes on it means that it's a warning that the speaker is not working. There is no way to take it off (from what the guy at LG said). My phone went into CAR KIT mode and I think it might have to do that it got wet or something. (my daughter might have had it in her mouth!) Just an FYI.

Lg cell phone vx3450


This is an old post but in case anybody searches and finds it...The infamous "car kit" mode on LG phones is a problem I had. Your service provider will claim the phone got wet (they will look at indicators in the battery compartment and on the battery itself that turn blue in the presence of moisture. Trouble is, they will eventually turn blue just from humidity even if the phone wasn't given a bath). Search the web; there are one or two forum threads with many suggested solutions (such as resetting error codes in the service menu, scrubbing out the battery connector with a toothbrush, plugging/unplugging the actual car kit connector, etc.). None of these suggestions gave a permanent fix (YMMV) for me and I eventually bought a new phone.

Car kit mode???


The Car Kit message is usually caused by corrosion in your charging port. Yes, holding * may revive the phone, but your best bet is to get some contact cleaner and a toothbrush and clean out your charging port.
