Re: Set to car kit.

I reinserted the wall charger a couple of times and it made the "car kit" go away. My guess is that two pins in the little connector inside the phone somehow got shorted together (dust or something). I saved the butter knife soloution for my last ditch attempt as I wasn't sure that shorting all the pins wouldn't increase the chances of damage to the phone. The post above definitely go the creative juices flowing since we had no idea how it got in "car kit" mode.

Nokia 1110: Where Is Volume Control?

When in a call you try pressing the up or downarrow key on the centre thumbpad.
In case the same doesnot work reset the phone to factory default select Restore factory set. under the Setting in the menu.

Under settings you can also go to the option that says Right key slection and select organize to see if you have the volume function listed there

LG Phone has Car Kit Error. Didn't Get Wet. Can I Clear it

Dear customer,
                     To Remove “Car-kit” error there are few ways:               What worked for me as suggested by chemist  is using Calcium Chloride (CaCL2) as a drying agent since it pulls moisture out of the air, and according to Verizon, this car-kit error is caused by exposure to moisture. For the average person, you can find this in the form of “Prestone Driveway Heat Concentrated Ice Melter” (or other ice melter – check ingredients). 
1) Pour about 1 cup or so of CaCL2 in a small Tupperware container. 
2) Place a sheet of paper on top of the CaCL2 to protect the phone. 
3) Place the phone on top of the paper so as not to allow phone to touch CaCL2 (this is important). 
4) Place the lid tightly on the Tupperware container. 
5) Allow to sit overnight. 

In the morning, the “car-kit” error was gone! Yay! I could could hear my callers, they could hear me, and I could hear all my ringers.  

                         Other suggestions that  might work for you are. 

         Car Kit 
 To remove errors from phone: 
#1) press soft key for menu 
#2) then press 0 
#3) you'll have a service code prompt, type 000000 
#4) then type 2 (it should be field tests) 
#5) then type 4 (clear errors) 
#6) choose yes for clear errors 
#7) press clear once 
# type 8 (FCC test) 
#9) type one (pcs) 
#10) type one again (set channel) (mine shows 426 I don't know if theres a different channel for each phone.) 
#11) press clear 3 times and the phone will reset. 

                       FOR RESTTING 
Enter "Menu" 
Select "Settings" 
Select "Security" 
Enter "Lock Code" - Will default to last 4 digits of phone number or "0000" unless changed. 
Select "Reset Defaults" 
Press "Ok"

Plz rate this solution.. thank you..

Phone says "car kit"

i brought my phone into verizon and they cleaned the charging terminal and it has worked fine ever since. My phone was accidentally dropped into water. if they tell you it can not be fixed use a small brush to gently clean the terminals on the bottom of your phone.

Says Car Kit on phone but has never had a car kit hooked up to it

A clarification on solution #1: Try pressing the tip of the knife (I used the end of a nail file) onto the lower right hand side of the charger area. That's what got it for me. If that doesn't work, try other parts of the end...
