Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Liquid in Main LCD Screen

I was working at the lab very late into the night/early into the morning. I decided to take a catnap so I set my alarm for 1 hour of sleep. I placed the phone (face down, I think) and put it on the desk. When I woke up, the first thing I could remember is that a cup of cleaning alcohol next to the phone had been knocked over. My phone did not turn off and there are no functional problems, but it is now 24 hours later, and there is still liquid in (or behind) the main LCD screen (other than the liquid crystal - to avoid any smart aleck comments). I can see dark splotches, and if I push on the screen, it moves around. Being alcohol, it normally evaporates very quickly - I thought it would be gone by now. Any ideas how to get this stuff out of my screen?

Re: Liquid in Main LCD Screen

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.
Sorry I just noticed the date. A bit late, but you can change the LCD. It's easy to do and cheap to buy.

Could be a firmware glitch, have you tried updating the firmware with Nokia Update Service (link below)? Make sure you back everything up first and make sure you follow their instructions to the letter because if it goes wrong it will kill your phone.

Auxiovox 8615 cell phone

Frustrating experience indeed. Audiovox reset it to no available, and I had to input all my setting again.

The Network (Virgin) finally reprogrammed it late yesterday, and this morning it was displaying the correct time.

Try checking the time settings:

Settings > Initial Setup > Time & Date

If it is already on Auto update, then try turning it off, perhaps your area time clock it sync's with is screwy and unreliable

Also a note about alarms, I have noticed if you leave your phone slider not on the main screen (closed/off etc) then alarm will not sound

So after those late night calls, make sure to close it and leave it on the main screen.

Blank screen

You can try the following: Trying pressing the * + # + Power at the same time - if it works the screen will show some letters and numbers - then you can try the following: 1) Flash the unit; 2) You or someone should check the flex cable which attaches the LCD to the main RF board; 3) Display and flex need to be changed (Expensive)
