My wife didn't have her phone in the shower and the Car Kit mode came up for no reason. As soon as I plugged the phone into the charger the Car Kit mode cleared and now we cn make and recieve calls again.

Can't hear incoming or outcoming calls


Sometimes when a phone goes onto car kit, it means its time to get a new phone. It shouldnt be doing that on its own. You can either take it in, and have them look at it, or get another phone. Good luck. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

LX VX5300 stuck on car kit


I have the same phone. I have had that same problem before. What i did to fix it was to take a blowdryer (on the cool setting -not warm or hot) and take the battery out and blow the phone with it. The reason it says carkit is because moisture got into the phone somehow. Mine first started saying carkit when my friend dunked my phone in a cup of water. I hope this helps you with your phone. Also if the blowdryer doesnt work then try using a can of pressurized air.

Take a tiny screw driver or something like it and with it short out pins in the connection port on the left. The phone should then turn off. I had to do this a number of times and finally got car kit to turn off. Hope this works for you it did for me!

I accidentally washed my LG VX5300, please help.


When electronics get wet, they MUST be taken apart as soon as possible and dried out. It probably has some wet areas inside that may have fried some connections. Water or corrosion by the water have short circuited something inside. There is still hope I hope to either take it apart and inspect and clean the corrosion off of all electronics or take it to an electronics shop and get them to do it.
