Amandapan13 I want you to take the battery out of the phone. Also feel the battery to see if is swollen in the center of the phone. If the battery is swollen you need a new battery. Take the battery out and clean all the contacts. Then put the battery back in the phone to see if you still have that problem. It could be the phone itsel that is not working. Plug the phone in without the battery. See if you still get that message. Hope this help. One replace the battery if it is swollen. If the battery is not swollen take the phone to the nearest carrier and have them look at it for you.

Nabi won't turn on


If very discharged may take a while before it will work - give it a few minutes.

You sure charger is the correct charger? Some phone charges might not be able deliver enough amps to charge it.

You can try a Forced Reboot - just Hold down the Power Button and count to ten slowly - release and try turn on as normal.

When turned on says "Use genuine battery" and when try to charge


I had the same "Replace with genuine battery" then the 10.9.8.7... countdown. Thought the damn thing was going to blow up!! Verizon switched batteries and told me the phone was dead and that they couldn't get any of my contact phone numbers off of it. Wanted to stick the ticking time bomb up their you know what. Never had any problems with the phone let alone never getting it wet. Anyway I didn't fall for their buy a new phone scheme and left the non customer service store fuming. The next day I had an old dinosaur Verizon phone activated to at least have a phone. Went home and checked a few websites for advice. One I came across made the most sense. Rubbing alcohol on the battery contacts and blow dry off using a hair dryer on the cold position for 20 minutes. Use a cotton swab and gently wipe the battery prong contacts on the phone itself as well as the battery contacts. I also wiped down the inside of the battery charging slot. Popped the battery back in and just like magic..... the phone was back from the dead. Told Verizon about the cure and they shrugged their shoulders. This works trust me and don't fall for their buy another new phone gimmick. Can you hear me now? NOOOOO

"use genuine battery"


Sadly it does happen to these phones more often then it should...

The best you can do is either get a new battery from your local dealer(or online) or just clean the contacts really good with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol.

If the phone receives a charge that isn't the rated from it's normal battery it freaks out and says that you're using a poor battery... It's really stupid.

Powered off.


Any beeps when you turn it on? unplug everything and then plug it back in. Make sure the monitor connections are good and that you have it turned on. Again make sure it's turned on. Sometimes it's the simple stuff. Was the monitor working well before it failed? Do you have a video card?
Remove the battery, AC, count to ten and try one last time?

"use genuine battery"


I left my phone in the yard and it got rained on (don't ask), and I brought it inside, took the battery out, and let it dry for a day. I reinserted the battery and it worked for a few days until i got the "Use genuine battery" message. I put a small piece of white paper (actually the back of the label of a bottle of Blue Moon) over the moisture indicator, put the battery back in, and everything worked, much to my surprise.

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.
