Put your phone in a enclosed box, filled with about a inch of cat litter. The cat litter will draw out the moisture. Leave phone in box, with back cover off. For at least 2 days.

Not a lot you can do for this problem, you could try taking all the removal bits off the phone, and drying them with a hair dryer on
low heat.
The chances are something will be fused in the phone.
AC/DC power and water don't go together.

My phone keeps saying use genuine battery when i plug it in


You have water damage...

REMOVE THE BATTERY!

*Choice one- Methyl Alcohol

Clean the circuit with Methyl Alcohol
  • Dip a q-tip in the alcohol and squeeze the q-tip.(you want it to be almost dry)
  • Very carefully clean the circuit and allow it to dry, it is important that you clean around the medal to prevent short circuits.

*Choice two- Rubbing Alcohol

Clean the circuit with Rubbing Alcohol
  • Dip a q-tip in the alcohol and squeeze the q-tip.(you want it to be almost dry)
  • Very carefully clean the circuit and allow it to dry, it is important that you clean around the medal to prevent short circuits.
  • Rubbing alcohol has a slower evaporation rate so you need to wipe the area with a clean q-tip after cleaning it with the alcohol.
If this dose not work you need a new phone, good luck.

LG VX8300 front and main screen are black.


2 possible causes - the LCD and/or LCD electronics PCB board is faulty OR the flexible ribbon cable may be kinked or broken. If you are knowledgeable in electronics repair, you can make this fix yourself.

VX8300 Phone! Problem!!


JJulie, I had a similiar problem with my phone (lg vx8300) where it would show a white screen saying "use genuine battery" and then power off automatically. Although there was no contact with liquid, there were signs of water damage (high humidity in my area, camera lens had some moisture) on the battery and phone. If you open the battery door, look at the bottom edge of the battery (where positive and negative posts are), and the spot on the phone located where the battery would line up with this dot. If either/both dots are red, then there has been liquid damage, and you will need to replace the phone. I understand that this is not good news, for me it meant that I had to pay to replace the entire unit. Check to see if you have insurance with your phone plan to get a lower cost replacement. Sorry for your loss, and hope this helped.
