Question about Verizon Communications G'zOne Type-V Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Phone Powers down whenever it is closed with any small force at all

I have had the G'ZOne for at least 6 months with no problems, until recently whenever I end a call or simply close the phone the power simply cuts off. I dont think I have put my phone to near the abuse it claims it can take and yet there is still some major issue. I have tried brushing along the contact points of the battery, but did not help at all. Any Advice?

    Yup, same problem. At the end of a call, the phone seems to freeze and then powers down and then starts up again.

    The same thing hapens when I hit the send button to see the last call or when I go into "recent calls" or "missed calls"

    I have had the exact same problem with my G'z one. I think the battery has poor contact with the phone. Thus, shutting the phone causes disrupts the power. Recently I noticed a whole bunch of corrosion on the the battery's contacts. It only works when plugged in now.

My G'zOne Type-V is about a year old and I recently started having this problem. It appears to have been corrected by cleaning the five spring-loaded pins in the phone with a vinyl eraser and cleaning the contact surfaces in the battery with an alcohol dampened cotton swab. After doing this the phone continues to work even when forcefully closed. In my case, there was no visible corrosion on either the battery or the pins.

As an extra preventative measure, I applied a bit of silicone grease to the contact surfaces to help keep water out, which is a bit redundant since there is a lip on the phone that forms a seal against the battery. Another option would be to use some type of electrical contact cleaner, though be careful that the solvent doesn't attack the plastic.

Hi, the experts of this phone: I had this KF750...

You could try to hard reset your device, in an attempt to sort your problems out. Be warned that a hard reset will set everything on your phone to their factory defaults, for what you'll loose all the programs you have installed, as well as your personal data. Anyway, to perform a hard reset, turn your phone off completely, by pressing and holding the power button, and, then, answering to the power off prompt. Then, press and hold the Volume Down, the Call, and the Power buttons, until the LED (at the side of the camera) flashes. Release the buttons. That LED should flash in green/red/blue now. When your device powers up, it should be completely cleared.

Hope it works for you, since this is completely theoretical. I have never done it myself.

It sounds like its a software problem and if you have only had it for about 5 months it should still be under warinty. Try calling your provider and tell them whats going on and see if they can send you a new phone.
