Question about LG RUMOR Cellular Phone
I have an LG Rumor phone that I got for Christmas. It is fully charged but when I turn it on, it stays on the opening screen and occasionally blinks but won't leave the screen. Any suggestions on how to fix or is there a way to reset the software?
If you have a memory card in the phone...take it out. then turn take out the battery. Turn it back on. And if that works. its because you have a virus and or corrupted file on that memory card. Same thing happened to me. But now the screen is all messed up everytime i slide it open or closed.

If your Rumor screen is messed up with the slide there is a malfunction in the wires in the phone. I had the same problem and they sent me to the service repair center and it took them an hour ro fix. Basically all it is the wire connecting to the phone and the slide reponce disconnects or melts away and they replace it.
As for the "not starting up" Take out the memory card take out the battery, put the battery back in and leave the memory card out, turn it on. It should work. Your memory card has a corrupt file and you need to put it in the SunDisc envelope it came in, slip it into your computer and basically delete everything.
Hope I helped.

If you have a memory card all you have to do is take it out and it will automattically start

I had exactly the same problem. I took out my memory card and then the phone automatically turned on. Hopefully that trick will help some of you.

I don't think its a problem with the memory cards if mine has also done it too. I think the phone has a malfunction with the opening and closing of the slider so much. The wires must get bent or screwed up...they should extend warrenties on phone. My keeps going white, or discolored when I slide it open and occasionally some of my key on the slider don't work. I love this phone but I don't think it is a good long term phone.
