Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

My phone is displaying emergency download and when i called LG the first time i was told i needed to purchase a USB cable, which i did, and it cost me over $20. After purchasing the cable and calling back i was told i had to send it to be repaired and it was going to cost between 40 and 100 dollars. Apparently they dont know what the hell they are doing and it is continuing to cost me money in the process, I like my phone and anything they can do Im sure i can do it myself, i just need to know how to do it. Please help me reset the phone to factory standards so that I can use it again instead of paying more to fix it than i did to purchase it in the first place. Thank you.

Hello.

Some moisture may have gotten in the phone.

Remove your battery and SIM card.

Use a hair dryer to remove the moisture.

Put the battery and SIM card back in the phone.

Place the phone in the charger.

Hope this helps.

Is there any donwloadable driver for lg p500 optimus one. i bought a new unit but theres no cd installer included so i cant use my usb cable.ty


LG has simplified and consolidated the download process of driver and manuals. No CDs are included with the phone because the time when the phone is purchased, the CD program is obsolete.

Now a single application retrieves files from LG. All you need to do is download the tool, run it, enter the information from the back of the phone (battery removed and it will download the required drivers.

To download the app, go to this website. OR click here for a direct download.

You should still visit the website in order to get the step by step instructions if there is a problem.

Choose to open or run the file or you can run after download, provide the necessary IMEI and serial # and it will download the correct USB driver once selected from the File menu in the program.

Sometimes the links may not work. In that case, reply and I will give you another link.

How do I get WMP to regognize my LG CF360 as a devise? also, why can't i copy and paste pictures to the memory card?


I have an Lg VX9600 Versa and before I could do anything with my PC with the cell phone connected, my user guide told me to go to a specific website and download the proper USB drivers for my specific phone. I am presuming that you are connecting with a USB cable...but I trust that this will help. If not, just call LG or your cell service provider...I think this phone is AT&T Wireless...good luck with that too.

I'm stuck on the yellow screen thats says "refreshing"


This could be a software or a hardware fault. If you recently changed the firmware or made other modifications to the file-system using EFS Explorer (or similar software), it may well be software related.

If you think the problem may be software related, try using Emergency Download mode to reflash your phone.
Possible faults to check with the hardware include:
  • The battery is empty, damaged or worn out. Try taking the battery out and connection your phone using the USB cable only.
  • The contacts of the battery are damaged or the battery has leaked.
  • The screen may be damaged and will not display a picture - check if the lower buttons light up when the End Call (Red) key is pressed.
In the case of a hardware fault or if you are unsure, contact the store from where your purchased your phone on for advice on the best action to take.


Emergency Download Mode __________________________________________ What is Emergency Download Mode? Emergency Download Mode allows you to connect your phone to your computer and use flashing tools (e.g. LGDMP) to restore or change your firmware.

_________________________________________________________
How do I access Emergency Download Mode?
  1. Make sure your phone is off.
  2. Hold down the Green (Call) + C (Delete) + Red (End Call) + Image Stabiliser (Lock) buttons
  3. Your phone should turn on and go straight to a screen saying 'Emergency Download' without first showing the usual LG Logo.
  4. You can now connect your phone using the USB cable and use Flashing tools to fix your phone.
_____________________________________________________________


Use the EFS explorer mode and check the maps.

If there is a map named TOTO and a map LGAPP.

First rename the map LGAPP in to any name you want or change
it like this AAAA.

Secend Rename the map TOTO to LGAPP.
Delete the first map you renamed the LGAPP.

When your finished choose disconnect and wait until the process is done.

You will see the phone starts up in a normal mode if not then
you've to reflash the phone.


I hope this will helps.

You have to have an SD card and also a port for your computer to read SD Cards. You could send them through pic message but that takes awhile. Good luck.
