    I have the same problem, I'm about to visit a telus store tonight, since i can't seem to find a way to reset it.

  • allizbob Jan 31, 2008

    telus will not even touch your phone if it is out of warranty. they will ship it for service for $25 and a $75 pre-approved repair fee.



    i called LG canada and they will not deal direct for repairs.

    Actually coming back to this and looking at it again a flash might help you. But it comes with a high risk at bricking(making useless) your phone and may not be worth it.

    It's a long process, but if you go to Howardforums.com and "search" for your phone + flashing, they'll be a detailed tutorial for you.

My phone says I have a pin # to get in , but I did not set one, how to fix it?


Your only option here is to hard reset the device. There is no bypassing this. Keep in mind, this may trigger the Google security lock, where you will need to know the original Gmail login and password you used when you setup the phone.

How to Hard Reset the LG L34C
  1. Turn off the phone completely.
  2. Press and hold the Power button and the Volume Down Key.
  3. When you see the LG logo release the Power key, but keep pressing and holding the Volume down button until the factory data reset screen appears.
  4. Once you see the reset screen release all of the keys.

I have a LG VS980W The white one, Verizon 4G LTE. When I power it on, it only shows the Verizon logo and nothing else. what needs to be done to it to make it work again?


The only way to fix the issue is by performing a factory reset and you will lose all of your downloaded apps and data.

To do a factory reset perform the following

1 Turn phone off
2 Press and hold down Volume down key plus Power/lock key together
3 Re;ease the Power/lock key only when the LG logo appears, then immediately press and hold the Power/lock key again.
4 Release all keys when the Factory data reset screen is displayed
5 Press the Volume key up or down, highlight yes and press the Power/lock key to continue. If you want to cancel highlight no and press Power/lock key.
6. Press the Volume key up or down and highlight Yes and press Power/lock button to confirm. Once confirmed the phone will restart and should be fixed.

Hope this helps.

Won't finish booting


Sounds like a corrupt operating system you can try the master reset steps below WARNING ALL PERSONAL DATA WILL BE LOST UNLESS STORE ON THE SD CARD











Other wise contact your provider via website or phone for the closest repair center

  1. Back up all necessary data.

  3. Press and hold the Volume Down and Power keys.
  4. Wait 3 seconds and press the Back and Menu keys.
  5. Note: If you see the LG logo before pressing the Back and Menu keys, the reset hasnt been completed and you will need to restart.

  6. Release the Power/Lock key after you see the LG logo.

  8. The Android Unpacking screen appears.
  9. The phone will restart and complete the factory reset.

My phone isnt picking up the sense to touchscreen, everyone in my family has tried to unlock my phone but the touchscreen doesnt pick up a sense, and its just frozen it will power off and turn back on...


A friend of mine had this same problem with an LG Ally. Eventually he had to remove the battery from the phone and replace it before the screen would respond. Some other things to try if that doesn't work:
  • Remove any screen protector you may have put on the phone. It is rare, but sometimes these can interfere with touchscreens of certain types
  • Reset the phone to the factory defaults (steps below):
  1. Turn the power off.
  2. Press and hold: Home Key + Power Key + Up or Down Volume Key.
  3. Turn the power on, while keeping the three keys pressed.
  4. When the LG logo is shown, release the keys.
  • Failing the above, I would return the phone to the retailer from which it was purchased. It's possible that the touchscreen is simply flawed.

When turned on screen lights up with apple logo but nothing else happens


reboot while holding the option key down. It should show you available hard drives from which you can startup.
Choose the drive and then press return or enter.
Then restart.
If nothing happens, turn off the laptop and insert your Mac OS disk and then reboot while holding down the C key.
The computer will load the system on the disc instead of your hard drive. Then instead of reinstalling the system software, look at the top menu and find the Disk Utilities program and run a repair on your hard drive.
Then reboot without the disk in the drive.

How can i get rid of the compaq logo even after i format my hard drive .


The screen that I think you're referring to is the OEM BIOS splash screen.

This particular logo / image has nothing to do with your hard drive... it is embedded on a physical chip (EEPROM or ROMBIOS) on your motherboard.

It is possible to make modifications to this particular splash screen (through a hardware hack), but I don't recommend doing it. The screen shouldn't be a problem; it sounds like you might be experiencing a "Boot Order" issue.

I'm assuming you might be having problems with the Boot Order if you're having issues with loading your OS from CD. When you have the Windows CD in the CD ROM and you reboot the system, you should see the following message flash up on the screen (immediately following your OEM BIOS Splash screen):

"Press any Key to Boot from CD..."

If you don't see this message and your CD ROM Doesn't spin up and begin to load windows...you might have a Bad CD ROM, bad CD "Disc" or...you might not have your BIOS Boot Order set up correctly.

HOW TO FIX IT:

To get into the BIOS Setup on a Compaq Presario system, do the following:

When the OEM Logo Splash screen appears, press F1 to enter the BIOS Setup.
Note: On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup.

To change the Boot order:

Here's the URL for Compaq's Online FAQ for Changing the Boot Order:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07110&lc=en&cc=us&lang=tr&man_lang=en&product=1843681&dlc=tr#N1310

Try changing the Boot Device Priority in the BIOS Setup: Make sure that the "CD ROM" entry is moved "Before" the entry for the Hard Drive and Network PXE:

Example Boot Order:
  1. CD ROM or Removable Media
  2. USB
  3. Floppy (if you have one)
  4. Hard Drive
  5. PXE (Network Boot)
This should help you load the OS successfully from CD (if you're not being presented with the "Press any Key to Boot from CD..." notification when rebooting with the Windows CD in the CD/ROM drive.

Please repost if this fixed your problem and rate my response!

Good Luck,
