Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Software Issue??? When i turn on my Chocolate LG8500 all the lights turn on (except for the screen), even the keys when i slide it open, it vibrates and then sits with all the lights on (except the screen) and then vibrates again and turns off... I was wondering if that is a software problem or if it senses that the screen is broken and just turns off. Cheers, Ed.

Re: Software Issue???

It is possible if your belt or as per your words wireing harness got shortened then this type of problem can be found. But in that case u have to purchase only it's belt not whole display assembly. It is also advisable to check it on software. Only trained technician can do it on special tool named Blazer or any other tool which he got. Sometimes this phone behavaive like this due to software problems also. Remember not to do anything with your phone except u r not skilled because it is SMD technology and one have to trained for use of special repairing tools.

My lg chocolate won't turn on, just keeps flashing the Verizon Logo

Flashing the logo means that the LCD is fine and kicking. You must get the phone's firmware reinstalled. The reason of flashing Verizon Logo is that it cant read or follow the instructions beyond the logo stage. So, give it the stuff to read or follow. Reinstall the firmware and you will find that everything moves smoothly.

Commands key twice, then touch .

lit, touch .
NOTE If you touch Left Soft Key [Quiet] while the
phone is ringing, the ringing or vibration is muted

Screen flashes white

I have your phone, my phone has always done this. It is a self test, the phone will quickly vibrate and a white screen will appear then disappear. The phone will then boot. This is a standard operation of the phone.

Are you using an SD card? If you are, it's probably corrupted. You need to format it.

If you aren't, try turning off your phone by removing the battery. then try again if the problem still persists see technical support .
