Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

The phone will only turn on when it is charging!! :(

Hi! Here's the info~

I recently exchanged (About a month) my old Chocolate for a new Chocolate because the old one was...well... old and the "call" key was broken.

Anyways... My boyfriend took my phone and decided to play with it. He opened and closed it once, then when he opened it again the phone died. I decided that it might have been the battery so I took it out and placed it back in. I pressed the "End" button but nothing happened. I took out the battery for a good five minutes and put it back in the phone and I still got the same results. (I know it sounds like I had a dead battery but I had charged it the night before and I had full battery when I was texting a friend just before...)

I finally went home and charged it. (It even said "Charge Complete" after I left it in for a minute.) It turned on, but whenever I unplug the darn thing it turns back off! My father wants to go to get a used phone but I'd rather not pay for the costs of exchanging everything.

If you could give me a hint or help me with this problem that would be great! Thank you for your time :)

I have had my phone for about a month now and it has not worked at all!!!! it will not hold a charge, we got a new battery, a new charger, nothing is working what do you suggest?

Well if its a month old its back to your dealer, you`ve laid out extra money to prove it doesn`t work. Go and get your money back or a replacement.

New Chocolate 3, charged fully; won't turn on

This may mean that this is a hardware malfunction, and that it should be taken back to the place from where it was purchased for either repairs, or refund.
Some possible solutions: Take the battery out, and put it back in, then try turning to cell back on.
Call the support line for the company that sells this phone, in this case, it is LG.

My phone wont turn on, but it will charge.

you should have recalibrate your battery, and to do that what you should do is when you first get a new battery, because that is probably what you will have to do, charge it to its full capacity and then use it until it dies completely. then charge it. you should do this at least once or twice a month to make sure that your battery is in top condition.
