Question about LG KU990 Viewty

1 Answer

Weird Battery life issue.

3 of us have a Viewty (KU990) all from different networks. And we have had them for about a year.

I had mine 2 days when The battery started to die after 4hrs.

My Solution:-- Avoide Carry cases with magnets, or placing the phone near somthing with magnetic force, like a speeker for example. For some reason magnetic forces drain Lithum batterys, I don't know the science behind it, but I got 2 days worth of charge when I removed my magnets from my carry case. (super glued a popper on the case)

My New Issue:-- After a year down the line, ALL 3 PHONES are now doing something really odd. Straight from full charge, 1 sms message or an incoming call would drain the battery too empty causing the phone to turn off... Then when you turn it on, its at full bar again..?? This has made making calls imposable.

Its weird that all 3 are doing this at the same time and from 3 different networks. I suspect a Date/Firmware bug!!

It's possible that your battery needed to be replaced. Since if the battery is not taking any charge or the battery depletes fast.. that basicly signifies that battery needs to be replaced since sometimes we can't avoid for the battery to be overcharged or we often charged them to often even if the battery still isn't drained yet. That causes for the battery to be defective or overused.

Battery life very short in my viewty which is less than 8 months old, although when battery used in another viewty battery fine, suggests it my phone. Suggestions?


Here are three tips:
1. turn off UMTS/3G in your network options, choose the standard 900/1800 instead of auto or UMTS. This can save a lot of battery.
2. turn off bluetooth
3. turn on the power save mode and reduce the screen brightness (you can also select the black handset theme)

The battery life of my ku990 is abnormal


The two main causes of battery life loss that no one thinks of are:

backlight settings (if you don't really need the backlight to stay on for 60 seconds after the last button press, lower it. this is a huge waste of battery life and it is easily changed in the settings menu of nearly every phone i have seen)

poor signal areas (when you have low signal, you phone wastes its battery life searching for acquirable signal. if it is unable to locate the signal, it will continue to search. this search uses up your battery life quite rapidly)

LG viewty ku990 - no battery life and phone gets really hot


Hi

I dont know if this will help you, but it helped me. I had the same problem, with phone not holding charge and getting really hot both during and after complete charge.
I needed my memorycard from my LG to my other phone, so I took it out, and off course the phone needed to be charged so I charged it, and... it did not get hot at all, and when it was finished, the charge lasted a day and a half!! Now the problem is I cant use the memorycard anymore in my Viewty :S Win/Loose situation i guess....

KU990 Viewty's battery loses charge very quickly


I saw on another forum two good tips.

1. Do not use a case with a magnetic clip.

2. Take off the battery cover and put tape over the two small etched squares that you can see one at each end on the inside of the cover.

I did this and up to now my battery has doubled its life. Still two bars after 1.5 days of medium use.
