Question about LG VX6100 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Use Genuine Battery

I dropped my vx6100 and the phone stopped working. When the pwr button is pushed the verizon logo appears and then the message "Use genuine battery. Power off in 10". The phone cycles off. Verizon declared the phone dead.

I tried the battery in another phone and the battery was OK. Tried an new battery and got the same message. Tried running off the charger and no battery. Did not work, asked for battery. Tried battery and charger, asked for genuine battery.

I want to recover my contact info. How can I fix the phone or recover the contacts?

On power up, why does it indicate 'use genuine battery', then shuts off?


If your phone does not indicate it is charging, the 'use genuine battery' message may its way of telling you the battery is defective.

When i slide open my phone or even push a button a black screen appears with the verizon wireless logo on it as if i turned off. Sometimes it does turn off.


You have to turn your phone off.. Wait a few minutes, then drop it on the ground. I know it sounds stupid but it works. I have no idea why, but it beats having to get a new one.?

LG Voyager won't reboot


Interesting, normally the screen only appears with water damage, which I am sure Verizons customer service has continued to tell you that is the cause without thinking the customer might not know for themselves, The only way to fix this is to got to a Verizon Wireless store and ask them to do what is called a software flash, now it may delete all your information on your device but at least it will work, if you need any more help with this let me know.

"use genuine battery" message


Because you are using a battery with more mAH your phone is not getting it. Have you got the same from LG, if so ask them for compatible battery. If not don't try such things. Better you get two batteries of lower mAH.
