Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Vcast screen keeps repeating.

Whenever I turn on the power for the alias, the screen that says vcast comes up with the bar on the bottom. When that bar fills up, the same screen repeats, and repeats. It's been doing this for about an hour. I have tried leaving it on the charger, taking out the battery, even both at the same time.

It's a software crash, and unfortunately it's unlikely even the technicians in your local Verizon store can fix it. They will almost definitely have to replace it.

The good news is that this is a warranty issue, so if the phone is less than one year old it shouldn't cost you a penny.

The bad news is that any data on the phone is most likely lost :(

My phone just blinks vcast now


I work for verizon-take your phone to a verizon store, have them swap it out for a new one. If your phone is under warranty you should be able to swap it out for a new one. If you are in contract the WARRANTY IS GOOD FOR THE LIFE OF THE CONTRACT. Call our Customer care line, don't go back to the store.

My Samsung SCH-u540 keeps turning on and then shutting off


Sounds like you have a defective battery. If you can use the phone normally with the charger plugged into it that is more than likely the problem. Step one is order a new battery. If that don't solve the problem take it into the store, but only if it's under warranty, otherwise shop for a new one.

Lg EnV VX9900 CLR Button Resets phone.


When you hit the clr button it will go back to the screen you where prior. When your booting up, it will show the Vcast screen. Maybe check your backlight setting.

Turn it on, all it does is vcast flashes off and on


Same thing here... got caught in the rain, and now it just goes on to the V-Cast screen and flashes.  Removing the battery does nothing.  Tried a blow dryer to the case (didnt disasemble) but this had no effect.  Any ideas? abkapner@yahoo.com

Get pictures and video off phone to the computer


Preparation ? if an external Micro SD external memory card is to be used as the desired music/video/picture repository on the W755, install the card in the W755 behind the battery. Then go to SETTINGS & TOOLS ? MEMORY ? CARD MEMORY ? FORMAT and format the new card. Caution: reformatting the card will wipe out all contents on the SD card. Download/install free Motorolla Handset USB Driver Installer onto the PC (execute ?.msi? file). Download/install free VCast/Rhapsody software (no need to actually sign in or use the proprietary Rhapsody service). Start the VCast/Rhapsody software. Turn on cell phone (works with W755 and may work with other Verizon ?music phones? such as LG Chocolate, but the latter was not tested). Connect phone to PC ? connect USB cable to PC?s USB port first, then connect USB cable to phone . Be patient, it may take a minute to fully ?connect? in the phone?s display. Go to ?Sources? section of VCast/Rhapsody GUI screen ? the phone will register as a directory title using a name roughly like ?VCast xxx.? Windows Explorer will also show a ?VCast? drive/directory device. Files can be selected and dragged to and from source and target directories. At this point various options exist regarding music, picture, video management: 1.) The VCast/Rhapody software can be used to manage music, picture, and videos between the PC and phone. Again, no need to use the VCast service, just the software offline. 2.) Alternatively, other music management software such as Media Monkey (a personal favorite) can be used to move music, create playlists, etc. ? NOTE: Leave VCast/Rhapsody software running in the background as a means to ?connect.? It is best to start VCast, then plug in phone, then start other media management software so that the media management software will benefit from the connection (usually with a directory name using some variation of ?VCast.? Then use the alternative media management software as usual. Please note, this is a generalization based on success using basic software like Media Monkey, for example.

LG CHOCOLATE VCAST MUSIC TROUBLE


Vcast will only find certain types of files. It will not recognize many formats that you may be using. I'm assuming this is the problem here... If you can find the songs you want to have on the phone you can then convert them to MP3 with a converter and place it where the Vcast software and then it should work.

Your phone's .scr file is corrupted. Try this first....*228 and Send, wait for it to finish, the phone should power off and on by itself....then go into VCast. If this does not work, then go to the Verizon store and ask them to reflash the phone. If you tell them the problem, they should know what to do....
