    My screen initially froze first. I took out the battery and put it back in, tried to turn it on, but got the same problem. First a white screen, then the black verizon wireless screen that keeps on beeping.

    I've already replaced the phone twice. I may just buy another one tomorrow unless there is an easy fix.

Update: Went to the Verizon Wireless store yesterday. I was told that it's a software problem and its basically like a computer crash. They could not fix it. Since its no longer under warranty, I could not simply get it replaced, either. My options were to activate an older phone or pay $50 to get a replacement. I couldn't even upgrade my plan because it wasn't allowable until 8/26!

So the bottom line is this - there is no easy fix that I (nor apparently Verizon) is aware of. It'll have to be replaced.

Noo, the problem is most likely that u have a memory card in there and the files on the card are bad. They could be infected. Just take out the card and it should work. This is what happened to mine. I had to erase everything on the card for it to be ok again.

My lg phone just keeps blinking lg off and on and won't let me on

Please press and hold the pwr/end key for 8-10 secs and this should soft reset the phone, if not then you will need to contact verizon wireless for support in warranty/repair, replacement of the phone as you cannot preform a hard reset without the phone on to where you could go into the menu or keypad. So please try the reset first and it that dos not work then you will need to contact verizon wireless for further assistance in repair/replacement of the phone.
If you need any further assistance just let me know.

My MSI MS-1683 Laptop With Windows 7 Home Premium won't boot up right. When I hit the power button, it loads to the screen that says "MSI" and then to a screen that has an underscore that...

That blinking underscore is the way in which the laptop's BIOS is telling you that it didn't find any Windows to boot to - it was completely corrupted.
The only thing left to do is to reinstall it.

The Blink Of Death!

well, the cause is definately a software issue...what caused it is hard to say. could be physical or moisture damage, but if u are certain that is not the issue, the phone can be replaced under the warranty if u have had it less than a year, or if u have the extended warranty. if it is damaged or out of warranty, you can use ur insurance, if you have it.

Won't power up

Is your battery dead? (I know you're not stupid...)

By dead, I mean, used so much that it won't hold a charge anymore. Try taking the battery out, plugging in the charger, then turning on.

LG phone problem- screen blinks on and off

This is an obvious software issue.
I took mine down to Verizon to ask them to reboot the software.
The tech said that unlike a computer, there is no BIOS chip.
So they have to pull the motherboard to reboot.
And that was not within his ability.
So he pulled a field replacement from his cupboard.
Put my Battery and backplate on it.
And assigned my phone number too the new phone.
All at no charge.
