Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone
I washed my husband's phone and now it won't work. His battery works in my phone, so it must be the phone itself. There is no visible consensation anywhere, but when any battery is placed in the phone and turned on it says "USE GENUINE BATTERY, Powering Off" Is there anything we can do?
I had this same problem and the problem actually is not with the phone. It means that the water damaged the battery. I purchased a new battery at a verizon store (because they have a 15 day return policy), popped it in and everything was hunky dory. Now I cannot say if there is any water damage to the rest of the phone, but when you are getting the error to use genuine battery, it is because that one is now damaged. New battery costs about 30 to 40 dollors
Hope this helps

I have a vx8300 that went for a swim. I peeled off the red sticker on the bottom of the battery and am STILL getting the Use Genuine Battery Power Off message?? I assume a new battery will do the same.

Do you see the paper on the battery.just remove the paper and put a blank peace in and it should work.

All I know is that the most proven fix for water damaged mobile phones is opening them up as much as you can, Be sure to take out the sim card. Place the mobile phone under the refrigerator as soon as you can. My phone was totally water logged and it took 3 days the the heat from the refrigerator to draw out the moisture.
Hope this hint gets passed around so many phones are being damaged this way. I know Samsung are about to releast a waterproof phone.

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
The chances are something will be fused in the phone.
AC/DC power and water don't go together.

There is special battery identifying circuit inside the phone. It seems it needs to repair. Only skilled technician can do the job. Ask fixya for nearby repairman. Is it helping to take decision then don't forget to vote.
