    First a big scratch appeared on the screen out of nowhere. then the screen turned white. Now none of the buttons (touch sensitive or regular) work. I can't use my phone at all.

    I was on the phone for 2 hours and then it had no battery so it turned off. So i got my charger to charge it, and then the screen turned white and then after the verizon wireless symbol came up but then turned black and keeps repeating that pattern without stopping. And this is my 4th chocolate phone so i can't get another one unless its free.

    This phone really is a P.O.S phone. Im on my 3rd one in under a month because i keep getting the white screen or the verizon screen flashes on and off nonstop. So today i went to verizon store to have them switch it out and they told me i had to go through the insurance company now and they would overnight the same P.O.S phone for $100. I wanted to laugh in the guys face. If anyone would ask me my opinion on this phone i would tell them not to waste their $ and just buy a phone and i-pod or some music device.

    replacing my phone for the second & third time, & having those incidents be within a month of one another just makes me want to jump off a cliff. i hate this phone. i'd rather have a huge 80's one the size of a suitcase than this phone.

  • Anonymous Nov 14, 2008

    I didn't drop my phone, get it wet, or do any damage. I have had this phone for a year. It was fine this morning, I turned it off while at work & when I turned it back on it was a white screen. The only way to turn my phone off is to take the battery off. I cannot use my phone at all now.

  • Anonymous Nov 22, 2008

    First the numbers all stopped working, then the buttons stopped. My husband plugged it in to charge and when he unplugged it the screen went all white and nothing has worked since. It still rings when people call though.. HELPFUL!

Okay all of you take the phone to a mobile service center and have the flexcable replaced, this will correct the white screen issues.

My lg chocolate phone turn on and lit white screen on..nothing el

The white screen is most often caused by a defective "flex cable" (Connects the keypad section to the display section). When this happened to my girlfriends VX 8500 I found a new cable on eBay for $10 (came with screwdriver and opening tool) and replaced the cable and the issue was resolved. Hope this helps

Touchpad unlock

im not sure what your problem is , I think your saying your touchpad is locked and your screen is white so you cant get it unlocked correct....its either if you hold star in or its the pund sign in and it unlocks the key pad worse case take the battery out and put it back in..... but i work for verizon and you can take that phone in and they will swap it out for you just tell them you didnt do anything physicial to it damage wise and be nice to them because that was a defest on the original chocolate..

LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular.(verizon)

There's no way for you to fix the issue, but Verizon can replace the phone for you if you go into any Verizon store with a tech department.

If the phone is less than a year old (or you have extended warranty or the $5.99 insurance) then they should be able to replace it at no cost assuming the phone isn't showing any signs of serious physical damage.

If the phone is older than one year and you don't have extended warranty/insurance then they will still replace the phone but usually for a $50 fee.

Now the tricky part - watch your phone carefully. If the display is a solid white, plays sounds, receives calls/texts, etc then the techs at Verizon should be able to get your data off of it. However if the display shows all white then blinks black and goes white again, then you have a software crash and your data is lost :(

Bring it to a verizon wireless corporate store ...if your under warranty and nothing is physically broken then MIGHT be able to replace it for free.
