Question about LG Chocolate 3 Cell Phone

3 Answers

My LG Chocolate 3 randomly resets itself (Turns off and back on whenever it feels like it) Sometimes when i turn it on, and a LOT When i'm texting. It's driving me crazy. It started out slow but its progressed to where it does it about ten times before i can even read my text, then repeats the process to attempt to type one.

My Chocolate 3 was doing the same thing. The problem is the battery is not being held tightly enough to the contacts on the phone. I folded a little piece of paper so that it was about 1/2" x 1/2" square, and about 1/8" thick and placed it on the back of the battery approximately where the contacts are and slid the cover back on the phone. The idea is to put more pressure on the battery which pushes it more firmly into the contacts. The problem completely cleared up after this simple fix. Also, it wouldn't hurt to make sure the contacts on the phone, and the battery are cleaned before doing this. You can use a good quality pencil eraser for this, or get some electrical cleaner from an auto store. I wouldn't spray that directly into the phone though. Instead, spray some on a Q-tip and use that to clean the contacts.

My lg viewty turns itself off whenever I or anyone


check that the memory card u use is not a cheap one you get such as carphone warehouse's version -_-' if u have a branded one such as san-disk then its most likely a fault with the phone itself, i have had the same problem, i replaced the battery and put in on charge for a full two nights and it worked fine.

hope this helps =D

LG viewty switching itself off and not restarting until battery removed and replaced LG Viewty randomly switches itself off and won't switch on again until battery has been removed and replaced.


I have exactly the same problem! My Viewty just switches itself off whenever I send/receive text/calls. I can't even switch it on anymore without it turning itself off after less than a minute!
I have contacted LG, but they are not responding. Has anyone found a solution to this problem?
