Weird screen coloration, turns off even when fully charged

I've had the phone about a year. every few months it would just turn off randomly. I took the battery out, wiped of the connection and that fixed it. Now out of nowhere I find it dead again but when I did the battery fix it didn't work. I charged it, but then when I turn it on it hesitates and then the screen turns all weird colors. I also had some problems just prior ( a day or two) to this with people calling. I got the call but I couldn't hear anybody, and people who called later told me that they had to call 5 or 6 times even to connect to my phone.

Re: weird screen coloration, turns off even when fully...

Have you tried resetting the phone through the settings menu? I would definitely try that, but make sure you backup all of your data first, as it will most likely be wiped out.

If wiping the connector on the battery fixed it before, you may want to try again. This time, clean it with a pencil eraser. Erasers do a good job off getting the crud off of those contacts.

I have a Samsung Rogue that I got about 4 months ago. Recently, it has been acting weird. It shuts off randomly, and sometimes doesn't send or receive text messages. I have also had a few incidents...

Verizon has discontinued the Rogue. I loved it, at first, and I have grown to dislike it. It has lots of issues with sync-ing - blue tooth & USB connections. I have had trouble with mine charging from time to time as well. I had to have it replaced the first month I had it because touch screen stopped working. What I have found through trial & error - the best thing to do is to turn it off, slide off the back, remove battery for a few minutes and then put it back in (kind of like a control alt delete on a computer) - if it freezes up on you - try that. The other thing I was just told by a rep last week @ store is to charge it from wall, when possible, not through car charger or plugging it into usb on a computer(computer doesnt recognize it anyway - so that is really the only purpose of the USB port built into the charger) - I believe the Omnia is the replacement version that Verizon is offering in place of the Rogue. I think there is a strong argument to make with Verizon that they should HAVE TO replace your phone at NO COST because the Rogue is discontinued & the sold you a phone with KNOWN compatibility issues with Windows 7. - Whatever phone they do give you - they can sync the information onto the other phone without even looking at it & can delete all your personal information off of the Rogue. I watched them do it when they replaced my Rogue & she didnt even see the information that was transferred - so if its privacy concerns - you do not need to worry. I would love to hear how you make out - as I am fairly irritated with the USB/photo/non compatibility issue & intend to make the same argument in the very near future.

LG Arena screen freezes on LG loading screen and won't turn on

charge ur mobile fully and switch it on. it will take a long time to load. take patience and wait for and hour or two. then when u gain access to the memory, remember what was the last application or file u used. if that it was big or untrustworthy delete it.

My phone turns off randomly

I'd go to your local carrier store and get a new battery.

LG ENV2 shutting off

I just got mine a few weeks ago and it does the same exact thing (I didn't drop it, there is no water damage, I didn't understand the cause of it). I took it back to the Verizon store and I was told that the random shutting off like that is caused by having the phone outside being exposed to heat. He reset my phone back to factory settings and that did the trick for awhile (its hard for me to go to the pool and not have my phone exposed to the heat). There is no charge for them to reset the phone. Mine has started the random shutting off again back up

Won't turn on

dancin - the phone board needs to be tested....

rpanelli+rena - try a new battery if that does not work then you will need to take the phone to a repair shop and have it fix.

Blank or White screen on new Motorola Krzr k1 cell phone

the white screen is because the 'flex' is broken. u need to change it. the 'flex' is a part that connects the upper part ( screen) and the lower part (keypad) of the cellphone. the flex is a common problem with flipflop phones. i dont know if u can get it in your country, but we have lots here. it costs around $14-15 including labor.

i was able to solve the white screen problem, but one of the 2 problems w this cell still exists. Whenever i close the flipflop, "memory card removed' appears, and it keeps blinking. Or when i charge my cell, this msg also appears. this also drains my batt. If i reinsert my memory card, it solves the problem, but whenver i charge my cell, it appears again. So its kind of a hassle to always open the back of the cell to reinsert the memory card, so what i do is , i never close the flipflop. Anyone has the same problem?
