Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Dropped phone, now it won't power on.

I dropped my phone and now the damn thing won't power up. No physical damage that I can see, battery fits correctly, back stays on. Nothing seems cracked or out of place. Any suggestions.

Pull the battery and put it back. Best bet is if you're within buyers remorse period get it replaced if your device was purchased new you should have 1 year manufacturer warranty that will cover frozen screen as long as no water damage or noticeable physical damage.

My Samsung Messenger 2 was dropped into a glass of pepsi and has a few serious problems as a result. The menu screens keep advancing on their own, cycling through each of the choices and moving on......

Unfortunately you have dropped your phone into a weak carbonic acid solution, it's almost the worst thing possible. The residues will continue to corrode the insides of your phone so there is no way to save it now as the physical damage is well under way.

If the Pepsi was the regular type and loaded with sugar, then those deposits will have just made matters even worse.

Dropped my phone and it wont turn on.

Your Phone is physically damaged.

Most likely, the mainboard is cracked, not to mention other components may be as well.

What you need to do is to call your service provider and order a new one.
If there is no evidence of "Physical Damage", then it is defective and they will replace it free of charge (they may charge you shipping), as long as it's still under warrantee/you have device insurance through your service provider (usually about $5 per mo.).

Or, if they (your service provider) will not replace it, they may offer you a credit toward another phone/device.

If it is "physically damaged" You will have to buy a new phone most likely.

Why does my phone say sim crash

There is a physical issue with your Sim card reading: Sim may have been slightly dislodged if you accidentally dropped or subjected your mobile to vibration: in most case, just remove the battery AND Sim for a few minutes and carefully re-install both Sim (make sure it fits squarely in the socket/cradle) and Battery and Cover. It should reset the phone.
Hope it helps!

The laptop was dropped & I need to open the machine. But I don't want to go ahead unless there something else wrong with it? There's no bootup !! So this could either be a simple power problem or it's...

You dropped the machine and you think the BIOS is the problem? I think you might have knocked something loose of crashed the heads on your hard drive. I seriouslyl doubt you affected the BIOS.

Check the hard drive to make sure it is securely plugged in. Same with the battery and the memory. If everything is secure, it might be time for a look-see by the guys at the office supply place.

Thanks for using

My son dropped his T Mobile phone into a swimming

I would go for it. Battery may be discharged. It is either going to work or not. Water damage is the worst thing tp predict. Circuits may have corrosion unless you have looked at the boards.

Dropped camera now it will not power up or anything battery is charged

You probably blew a fuse. Maybe the lens jammed and the motor could not overcome the jam so it shut itself down to protect itself. I dropped my first camera, under AMEX warranty and it came back with 3 fuses repaired, no physical damage-just wouldnt turn on.
