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 pink moisture indicator, put the battery back in, and everything worked, much to my surprise.

On power up, why does it indicate 'use genuine battery', then shuts off?


If your phone does not indicate it is charging, the 'use genuine battery' message may its way of telling you the battery is defective.

"use genuine battery" message


Because you are using a battery with more mAH your phone is not getting it. Have you got the same from LG, if so ask them for compatible battery. If not don't try such things. Better you get two batteries of lower mAH.

LG VX5200 Battery issue


Sounds like a mfg. defect. I have never had a phone on Verizon system do that, or an LG but I would be curious to see if it kept on occurring once you get a generic battery from a reputable online site.

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.
