Lg vx8300 verizon says car kit display have no

Car kit mode means one of two things, first it could have a piece of lint or paper stuck in the charge port making it think there is a car kit plugged in, or second it could be that some moisture got into the port and its giving a indication that something is plugged in. and thats why you're not getting any sound. There is no specific setting to turn on or off 'car kit' mode you can use a paper clip or something and mess with the port a little bit to see if 'car kit' goes away or replace phone

I own LG VX8360 and can't figure out hoe to turn ringer on. Can you help me?

To restore the ringer it will depend on what mode your phone is in:

Vibrate Mode:
Sets the phone to vibrate instead of ring.

To set Vibrate Mode, with the flip open, press and hold the # key .

To return to Normal Mode, press and hold the # key again.

Sounds Off Mode:
Quickly deactivate your phone's sounds when you're in a place where phone sounds would be disruptive.

From standby mode with the flip open, press and hold the lower side volume key for 3 seconds. To return
to normal sounds mode, press and hold the upper side key.

Airplane Mode:
Turning on Airplane Mode will disable all wireless communications.

1) With the flip open, press the Menu key.
2) Use the Directional Key (top center of phone) to scroll to 'Settings and Tools'.
3) Press the 6 key for Phone Settings.
4) Press the 1 key for Airplane Mode.
5) Use the Directional Key to highlight a setting, then press OK.

My phone is in car kit mode i cant use my phone how do i take it off?

You have not mentioned the make and model of your phone. In the settings there must be some place where you had specified the car kit. Put it back in the normal mode in the settings. It must be in connectivity thru USB or some such place. Try to find the car kit option and change it.

Getting an error that says car kit on phone

Mine said car kit and I kept reading it was because it got wet, and my phone didn't get wet. I noticed a little corrosion where I plug the phone in starting to form and I rubbed a little off and the car kit on the main screen went away.

Car kit

same problem....i found a neat solution to this one..see if it works for you too...i simply charged my phone as much as possible, drove to a nearby lake(you should do this while its light outside for best effect's to be noticed), and then i THROUGH the damn thing as farrrrr as sure that you spend the time so as to take it all in..then, go to your nearest retailer and get any new phone that does not say LG on the worked for me and i'm glad to say that it definetly decreased any homicidile thoughts i had been having due to the issue.

Car kit mode???

The Car Kit message is usually caused by corrosion in your charging port. Yes, holding * may revive the phone, but your best bet is to get some contact cleaner and a toothbrush and clean out your charging port.

Above the Date and time it says -Car Kit- I do not have a Car kit and I can not make any calls I just now banged the connector end against my desk and I think that fixed it. Why would my phone do...

YOWZA .. Car kit means the pins in the charging port are either liquid damaged or bent and touching eachother.

with a tooth brush and some NON Corrosive cleaning spray .. try cleaning out the port ... Canned air wouldn't be a bad idea either.

If the damage isn't bad you can usually take the phone out of car kit, but if liquid has corroded the board then im afraid it's time for a new phone.

Says Car Kit on phone but has never had a car kit hooked up to it

A clarification on solution #1: Try pressing the tip of the knife (I used the end of a nail file) onto the lower right hand side of the charger area. That's what got it for me. If that doesn't work, try other parts of the end...
