Check the battery and look for a sticker on the back, it should pink poka dotted, if its completely pink, it means it got wet.
if it got wet, thats the answer to ur problem

Battery will not hold a charge


Sadly phone batteries don't have the long life they used too. There isn't a lot you can do besides purchase a new battery. Samsung only covers the battery for one year from date of purchase, so you might be able to get a replacement if you have had it for less than a year. Otherwise, eBay is your friend. You can extend the life of the battery by changing some habits of how you use the device.
- Let the battery run completely down about (dead phone) about once a month. This helps ensure a longer life.
- Try to avoid using car chargers. The power provided isn't always the most stable and can greatly shorten the life of your battery.
Once you get a new battery, don't charge it right away. Let it run down the first time to empty before first time charge. That will ensure a long, healthy battery life.

LG VX8300 will not make or receive calls.


If it's getting hot - the battery is bad. Once the battery heats up, they can become a fire hazard! Seriously - I know it's kind of funny, but replace the battery. This will probably solve your "not holding a charge problem". You can usually get a battery on ebay for around $5. And usually you can turn around and sell the phone on craigslist for $50 once you get your new one.. <BR> <BR>

If it doesn't get signal with a new battery - the internal antenna is probably faulty - this will happen if it's been dropped one too many times, or had some other sort of hard impact.

Battry dies


I would try either buying a new battery or cycling the battery that you have now, before spending the $200. Run the battery completely dead before re-charging it. I've seen handheld phones (this was years ago) that would shut down once the battery reached a specific voltage, which would not be low enough for the battery to lose enough charge to deplete its charge 'memory.' Many batteries will hold a charge for less and less time every charge cycle, simply because they aren't run down. When we encountered this problem, the manufacturers suggested that we hook a light bulb to the battery (we'd use a 12-volt car turn-signal bulb) and when the bulb would go out, we'd re-charge the battery, and then when it was fully charged, run it down with the bulb again. We'd do this three times, and the battery would be good for say another year or so. Hope this helps. If not, let us know.

VX8300 Phone! Problem!!


JJulie, I had a similiar problem with my phone (lg vx8300) where it would show a white screen saying "use genuine battery" and then power off automatically. Although there was no contact with liquid, there were signs of water damage (high humidity in my area, camera lens had some moisture) on the battery and phone. If you open the battery door, look at the bottom edge of the battery (where positive and negative posts are), and the spot on the phone located where the battery would line up with this dot. If either/both dots are red, then there has been liquid damage, and you will need to replace the phone. I understand that this is not good news, for me it meant that I had to pay to replace the entire unit. Check to see if you have insurance with your phone plan to get a lower cost replacement. Sorry for your loss, and hope this helped.

Lg vx8100 error message on screen: use genuine battery. power off 10 sec cuts off


Not exactly a solution. I tried leaving it off overnight and tried it several times after removing and inserting the batteries. I also cleaned the contacts with contact cleaner and a Q tip. It did not fix it. But I just left it off for 2 days meaning to go to the Verizon store and get it fixed or replaced. But I turned it on now and it fixed itself! Model VX8300. Maybe the contact cleaning did it but it had to dry more. You can use a Q Tip dipped in a cup of water with a teaspoon of Mr.Clean. But then rinse it with a water wet Q tip and then dry it with a paper towel. I used contact cleaner.
