Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

I just bought an LG Chocolate VX8500 off of ebay. It was brand new with the protective plastic and everything still on it. Today when I was just in the middle of texting, my phone stopped working, and then I tried shutting it off. Now everytime I try to turn on my phone it wont work, and sometimes will just cntinue to flash verizon wireless on the screen. Help?

i dont fullly understand what problem you have with your phone but i have had a problem sililer to this and it isn't easy to find any1 who would repair this 'cheap' but you could save quite a bit of money by buying a replacment screen for this phone off ebay

I dropped my LG Chocolate in water and put it in a bag of rice for 24 hours. Everything works perfectly except the screen, which turns blue when the phone is on. How do I fix this.


If you have insurance on your phone getting it wet will invalidate all warranties and insurance. The only time insurance can be used if the phone is malfunctioning (not from getting wet), or LOST. If your phone is lost, they will give you a brand new one under the insurance policy.

The only piece of a mobile that can go bad when dunked is the LCD screen if it has liquid in it.

1. If you do not want to purchase anything, you can try to remove the lens from the LCD screen and see if any water is between the lens and the lcd. (the lens is the glass that covers the lcd which is usually stuck on with double sided tape.)

2. You can purchase a new lcd and install it.

3. to disassemble the phone follow these instructions:

4. replace the screen, and the phone should be good as new.
