Question about LG Chocolate Clamshell VX8600 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My cell randomly shut off, and now the only thing it does is stay on the Verizon logo...

So I casually flipped my VX8600 open and was hit a button. The screen froze for a moment, then the phone shut off, but the key pad still lit up. It stayed like this until I pulled out the battery.

Now whenever the phone turns on, it just stays on the Verizon logo, and won't power down. The only way for it to quit lighting up the logo is to remove the battery.

I bought my phone in mid-August.

It hasn't been in any water. Once, or twice, days, maybe weeks ago it was in a pocket of my pants while I was in the shower. Can it take that long for oxidation to set in?

Thank you so much for any help or ideas you can offer.

Try removing the battery from the phone overnight (remove also the memory card if you are using one) and then on the following day put the battery back in (don't put the memory card back in - if using one) in and try to turn it on. If this doesn't help then the phone requires a flashing of the firmware (from your mobile operator). Good luck!

Lg g2 will not turn on

  1. Take your phone and turn it off - just press power button and select "power off".
  2. Wait while your device is shutting down.
  3. Then, press volume down button and power button together until the LG logo appears on the screen.
  4. When the LG logo is displayed, let go of the power button, keep pressing the volume down key and then press once more the power button.
  5. Once you do that, on your LG G2 the factory reset menu will be displayed.
  6. Press power button in order to agree and wait while the hard reset is being completed.

I have a Moterolla V3,my LCD screen is not displaying correctly, I see white and red, but I can't make out anything else. When the phone initially turns on the screen displays the Verizon perfect...then it...

The flex that connects your screen to the phone board is bad and has worn out. It is commom with flip phones. All you need do is to replace the flex and be very mindful of how you close the flip phone.

Take care.

I'm having the same problem with my verizon vx8600 phone. Only with a jabra bt350 (listed as compatible). It actually doesn't find anything at all, no phones, no headsets, no bluetooth enabled PC's. Not really sure what to do since I've discovered handsfree talking, I never want to go back
