Check the cable connector (at the bottom of the phone) for debris or corrosion on the connector contacts. Use rubbing alcohol if necessary.

I believe this is what Verizon had me do:

Make sure the phone is off. Take the back off the phone. Turn the phone on...while booting up, plug the phone into the charger. When the phone turns on completely, take the battery out of the back of the phone. Then turn the phone off, unplug the charger. Put the battery back in and turn on the phone. That should have reset it.

I might have missed a step... if I did... just call customer support... and ask for a hard reset. They will walk through it with you. This usually happens because of water damage... but our phone did not have any.. so not sure what caused it.

Car kit?

No you won't, all you have to do is, while the phone is on, stick a piece of tin foil (a SMALL piece, preferably folded up) into the slot where you plug in the charger and wiggle it around until the phone shuts off. Then plug it in, turn it back on, and everything will be back to normal. The same thing happened to me and this advice was given to me, so I tried it and crazy as it sounds, it worked. Don't waste your money getting it repaired when it doesn't require anything more than a little foil. The number one cause of "car kit" is: babies sticking the phone in their mouths. :)

Display says "car kit" - cannot hear anything or be heard on phone

Yes, it can be solved! This happened to mine and Verizon was no help. I finally found the solution on the internet. The little prongs inside the charging port are touching, get a magnifying glass and flashlight and you'll see it. I took a toothpick and seperated them and the problem was fixed instantly!

Lg vx 8300 phone was stuck in car kit pressed and held star key

ok you got to open it up then check for corrosion its very hard to spot but if you have a good magnifing glass and lighting you can spot it. scrape it off but not enough to hurt the board then it should work do not try the fork method!!! you could fry your phone if you are not careful. what happened is you got moisture in the phone and it has corroded a spot on the board thats it do not take it to your verizon store they will take your phone and charge you for a new one i think its a liability scam but i hope this helped!

Can't always hear other person when using ear bud wint VX-8300

Make sure the ear bud isn't going bad, they are generally thin wired and poorly manufactured. Try a different set that is compatible.

If that doesn't fix it, take the battery out of the phone, get some rubbing alcohol and an old toothbrush and clean the headphone port.

And if that doesn't fix it, just get a bluetooth headset. Your pone is compatible and they can be found online for usually around $20. $40 for a descent set.

Hope this helps,

Speaker does not work well....

Trying turning down the volume a notch ...If the soundfiles are "home made" files then it's possible you made them too loud for the speakers on the phone to handle.
