Question about LG Vu CU920 Cellular Phone
Try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .
it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).
beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.
This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Unfortunately, the same thing happened to me, and I havent been able to get it working again. My suggestion is to just get another phone. You might be able to sell it for parts on Ebay or something.

SOURCE: My LG Vu says Emergency
***** Before Sending In Your Phone For Repairs *****
check your battery. this happened to me. my battery was kind of tilted down on the site with the gold contacts. believe it or not, i split a toothpick (about half an inch long) and wedged it in between the lower left edge of the battery and the phone itself in order to push it up into the contacts. boom. works great now. no more emergency download screen. no more insert sim card screen. no more glitches.
ah, modern technology.
