Your phone might have a bad Flex cable...or more. Sorry, but there is no Quick Fix for this...have to take it to repair shop.

I dropped my galgaxy s3, it started randomly shutting down, then after awhile died and now it wont even charge.


The charge port might be damaged, I would recommend trying to charge the battery with another charger / phone, or try another battery.

The shutting down part, I will assume something either got loose or the power button might be cause the issue. Which means you might need to replace that, depending on the phone, it might need soldering.

The last idea I can come up with is water damage, you would have to open the phone to make sure, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you know what you're doing.

All in all I would say bring it to a repair store near you.

Hey. I was plugged my iPhone into a wall charger. As soon as I plugged it into the dock it vibrated twice then suddenly stopped charging. Then again it vibrated... But only once then it went off....


Hi,

have you tried holding the power button and the home button on the front together? Anything?

if that doesnt work power up your comp with most recent itunes on it and hold the home button down on the iphone and keep held down while plugging to comp and keep held until a message appears on itunes saying a phone has been detected in recovery mode, then restore your iphone as new.

if your phone is over heating then its a safety issue, see if your still in your years warrenty and if you are give apple a ring they should help you out under your limited warrenty

Problem with my LG env3. It shuts off at random times. Any thoughts as to why?


Poor design and I believe this requires a recall. The problem is the fact that when the phone is closed everyone would think that all the internal buttons become locked, WRONG I found out that all is locked except the power button. So with the env3 all you need to do is unlock the phone by pressing OK (how hard is that, it's the easiest button to push), then pinch and hold down the top left corner of the phone (where the power button exist underneath) you will notice the sound of a button push (which is the sound of the power button underneath being pushed) and bam, you phone turns off. It is more easy to turn your phone off this way then to use the button in front to turn it off. Like most of us, we don't worry about the phone in our pockets or purse, or even in our phone case clipped on our belts and many times we found our env3 unlocked with random numbers on it. That doesn't bother me, it happens with cell phones, what really bothers me is the fact that the power button internally still works when it is closed and all it takes is for you to lean against something or have it in your pocket and pinch that one corner and you will never know that your phone turned off.

My LG Lotus turns off


We just bought this phone today and after a few hours, it just started rebooting randomly. We were getting ready to return the phone, and then updated the firmware and now have no more reboots. Here are the steps for a firmware update:
  1. From the Home icon select, the OK/Menu button
  2. Go to Tools
  3. Scroll down to Update Phone (or press #) and press OK
  4. Select Updated Firmware (or press 1)
  5. Follow onscreen instructions
After the download completes, the firmware package is installed. For the last several hours, we've had no more reboots or power downs.
