LG ku 990 switching off

My ku990 is constantly switching of and only by opening it an replacing the battery it will switch on again. checked other sites and this appears to be a general problem. please help. how do we inform LG about it I have the same issue with the phone just turning off. There is a problem with this phone and it has nothing to do with the battery. LG needs to come forward and admit that there is an issue.

    My phone has this same issue. There is definitely a flaw with this phone since there are numerous people having the same issue. LG needs to come forward and admit to the issue and if they are working on a fix.

    two new phones on plans dead three times in 2 weeks. Battery charge shows 3.2 v? is this enough to make it work or is it a phone problem?? It turns itself off overnight and then wont start up. Recharge will make it last one ay then dead overnight again.

    battery is indeed a major flaw.

    i am going to get a new battery to see if it'd be better... fingers crossed.

    sometimes it randomly turns off after 10mins speaking on the phone

    or when browsing wap, browsing files or taking pictures.

    is the battery not powerful enough to handle the phones features or something?

    and sometimes when it does turn off i can't turn it on for about 30mins!

    this is rather dangerous as i travel alone.

    soo... i've decided to take my trust samsung old phone with me just in case...

    too bad because this is a really good phone and i love it so much

    but i hate having to stay connected to the computer or mains in order to use it's features.

    this is so annoying.... i can't even talk on the phone for 5 minutes because it turns off randomly by itself !!!! even though it was fully charged.....

If you have an issue with short battery life, your camera flash dont work, smell burning near the battery cover clip and sounds like a crackel sound . please send it back to LG as its manafacture issue.

maybe it is due to the software on the phone or might be the battery, the best thing to do is to take the phone to where you bought it or take it straight to an LG dealer....maybe they will be kind enought to notify LG about the problem and tell you what is wrong....
