The battery storing Integrated chip(IC) whch is the universal energy management system of your phone has to be replaced.This is not a work at home as it is very minute feature and needs the help of technician and proper tools.

It is a cheap fix only. if you are so handy on working with the mobile circuit boards i can guide you through the process.

Replace that IC and get your phone charged and going

    I`m going to get a hot air station first. I`m handy at replacing other

    parts. where is chip located? and what`s the procedure, and where can I get the chip?

    INDIRA KUMAR Jun 02, 2010

    You must get in any mobile repair shop but its hard to get it separately alone.Unless we know someone working there.
    So once you get it open your phone apart with proper tools...

    INDIRA KUMAR Jun 02, 2010

    Once you open it apart it will be located at close to the charging point.Some times it will be just clip off and put in new one but mostly it will involve soldering

    your infomation is a big help .I appreciate it. can I use a chip from a lg vx7000 or another phone if it looks the same? a small round disk attached to the board, under the charge port?

    INDIRA KUMAR Jun 02, 2010

    It will be an rectangular box like structure not an round disc and you cannot interchange within models dear friend.Please rate and accept my answer if satisfied.

New phone that won't take charge

Check the adaptor , if Ok plug into phone and check the voltage on the battery terminals, if OK then the battery is faulty, This is due to the battery having developed reverse polarity. A quick charge with an external voltage can sometimes get it jump charged. If not replace or claim warranty if the phone is new.
If adaptor is not having the voltage it can be faulty.

I have a new LG vx8700 and I have a very weak signal.

On Verizon, sometimes you need to update the carrier settings. This is done over the air. Dial * 2 2 8 and press Send on your phone. It will go through an automatic process to refresh and reactivate so just be patient and listen....

Good luck!!

I just bought a new battery for my lg 9900 and it won't hold its charge for more than a day.

How long did you originally charge it for? Whatelse is running on your phone to drain it?
take it to a retail store and have them look at it.

Battery went dead

Most likely you have a bad battery you can check by taking out the battery and feeling on it if it is flat than its good if it has a bump on it than it is no good.

Battery for LG VX8700

The little plastic notch (button looking thing) on the back of the phone, near the top slides up (use your fingernail) When this is done the aluminum plate on the back comes off. Then use your fingernail again to pull outward on the top-left notch of the battery.

LG VX8700 won't stay charged...

I had the same problem with mine... I found that you must let the battery completely drain out; I was continuously jumping to charge my phone when it was down to one bar, and realized that upon doing this, the battery never fully retains its charge for as long as it will if you let it die out (blank screen; completely off).

I did this twice, and have not had a problem since.

Hope that helps!

Seems I may have the same problem, I just returned the first Jawbone, second one is displaying the same problem - it pairs but then won't recognize or interact. Sad if it's my phone.
