Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

3 Answers

Phone will not turn on

First off, I did not drop or get my phone wet. I turned my phone off last night and then this morning I turned it on and I get either a white screen or the initial screen with the cell phone carrier logo. These screen alternate back and forth.
Also, what are the little white/red dotted circular stickers on the batter and phone?

Ok, take out the battery and look and see you can see a white dot pice of circular paper, if it is red, your phone somehow got water in it, look at your battery(white dot paper) if it is red than you have water in you phone. now you need to dry it! leave it on your car dast board in the sun 24hrs or use a hair dryer ( use low heat) you must dry your phone and battery completely before the next step, Next step- find a good working battery and insert it in your phone, see if this will correct your problem, sometime the battery volt are very low or maybe the battery itself its bad, but make sure you put in a new battery to test this out, don't pay for the battery until you check you phone at the counter, ask for the right model for you phone.

good luck

Phone got wet.

Most likely the screen display had a shortcut. You need to replace it, although it's not cheap. Expect to pay a little less than the full price of the phone.

Next time spend more time drying the phone, you can even use a bowl with rice to immerse the phone and leave it dry for one full day.

I dropped my phone in a drink the other night...the phone got only half wet. Touchscreen is now not working at all and upon trying to turn my phone on the next morning, it is now LOCKED. I cant get it to...

the components of your phone where wet, and it is possible that your phone is death. it can be repaird at the repair center, but it will cost you a lot. it will cost you more then a new phone, so you are better of with a new phone.

Charged my phone last night and will not turn on this morning

Thats what my phone does when the battery is dead. perhaps it did not charge last night. see if the phone will turn on while connected to the charger. if so, the battery is dead or defective.
