There is special battery identifying circuit inside the phone. It seems it needs to repair. Only skilled technician can do the job. Ask fixya for nearby repairman. Is it helping to take decision then don't forget to vote.

SOURCE: LG ENV randomly shuts off
I have had the same problem. It would shut down 3 or 4 times a day. I always had to check the phone to make sure it was on - very annoying. Here is what I did to fix my problem:
I took the battery out and noticed that the 4 battery terminals did not have the shiny brass/gold appearance that I thought that they should have. I took a Q-tip with some alcohol and cleaned the 4 battery terminals on the battery and the phone. I put the battery back in and the phone has not shut off (by itself) for 4 straight days now.
I would give this a try before any other drastic action.

SOURCE: My enV read use genuine battery
I got this same message and got so mad at my phone that I finally started getting really drastic with my choices on how to fix it. First I took an eraser and rubbed it on the battery and where the battery means the phone. Thinking that maybe it was dirty or something. I don't know if I saw that solution from here or somewhere else be someone said to do it and it didn't work, but you should try it just in case. Then I took a Q-tip and dipped it in some rubbing alcohol. I rubbed it on the same spot where the battery meets the phone and on the battery and it didn't work either, but still try it. It may work for you. Eventually I gave up because it sucks to sit through ever attempt and hope that it works when it doesn't. I just sat there with my phone and turned it on and off and watched the message in boredom, but them my phone finally died. So I just put in on my dresser and forgot about it for a while. I woke up the next day and had plans to check my phone and I couldn't find it, then I remembered that it was broken and got up to go get it off my dresser. I tried turning it on but it was still dead. So I just decided to pug it in and attempt to have another day of desperate attempts to fix it but instead of it just saying 'use genuine batter' and staying like that, it had a message the said 'battery charging' and while it said that a picture of a battery beneath it flashed. I was confused because 1. I’ve never seen this message before and 2. I’ve tried plugging it in before but it still didn't work. So I pressed the power button while it was still plugged in just to see what would happen and it turned on like normal. the verizon wireless label came up and my normal screen came up. So maybe you should just let your battery die and leaving it dead for at least 8-15 hours then plugging it in and turning it on while it is plugged in. It was…extremely relieving.

So, This Isn't Really And Uncommon Problem With This Phone, Mine Does It Whenever i Put It In My Pocket, The Best Thing To Do For This Is To Take It In To Where It Was Purchased And Report The Problem, Thats What I Did And I Got A New One Free Of Charge Due To Faulty Manufacturing.

A temporary fix to the problem is to put the battery in the freezer for a minute and then put it back in the phone and it will turn on just fine! I had an LGVX8700 and it just randomly started happening one day and my fiance told me to try doing that so i did and sure enough it worked. I had to go to verizon at one point to get a new phone because the one i had got damaged and the tech there used the same battery in my phone for the new one and he thought i was crazy when i told him to put the battery in the freezer but he was in for a surprise when he did what i told him and my phone turned on. It's annoying because you have to do that everytime your phone shuts off but i always made sure i plugged it into the charger before it went completely dead.
