    I've had my LG Shine for 2 months and the camera won't start until I click the camera button about 15 times and then when I want to take the picture it says "error" and closes the camera function. I also checked the manual and found that it says nothing about it. I've tried turning off the phone and restarting it, and also tried turning it off and removing the battery and then restarting it, but neither worked.

    OK this is weird, i was talking to my dad as i am only 14 years old, but i said maybe we should send it back to the factory to get it fixed, and as soon as i said that, it worked like perfectly just say i guess i have to send it back to the factory, and maybe it will work, i dunno its kinda weird.

    i have the exact same problem! for mine it says camera start error and just closes.... i used to be able to press the side button the QUICKLY close the camera and get it to work then open it again but that doesnt work anymore

    ok this is amazing i found i way to fix it. if yours is the flip phone. ok if it sais camera start error, then flip it closed pretty hard, not hard enough to break it but faster then usual with a bit more force. press button again and it should work. i think we might have a loose connection in it. its kinda funny because i was pissed off and i just slapped it closed.

  • Anonymous Mar 02, 2009

    Yep, same problem. Just gonna get a replacement.

  • Anonymous Mar 30, 2009

    I agree with the closing it hard suggestion; probably a loose wire (or similar issue)... mine hasn't been working for months and I just got it working by slamming it shut.

    LOL...I am having the same problem and just slammed mine shut and it works.... How did you figure that out??? Bahahaha

  • Robert P. May 14, 2009

    your welcome people. im 15 years old and i solved that problem, i was just pissed off so i slammed and shut and it worked i still do it all the time. if it still doesnt work let me know what it is saying. because you all seem to be happier now. i looked at it and smiled basically because i knew people would say yeah whatever. but waited for them to try it and surprise. you let me know if there are anymore problems. i have a bigger one right now tho then a camera. i got a speaker problem now. anybody have any ideas of why i cant hear people when im on the phone? it will ring when it is closed and about half way open, but other then that nothing.

Lmao, its funny how slamming the phone shut gets it to work, been doing this for almost a year already, now it takes longer for it to work, but doing the same thing, just slamming it shut, it sucks that this phone has this problem because its such a good phone.

Just so you know- the slamming it thing worked for a while, then I had to resort to dropping it, which worked for a while...and now it nothing works at all. So enjoy your camera while you have it! My phoone is just over 2 years-old.

I take pictures on the KE970's camera, which appear as they should on the phone, but when i connect the USB to my pc and view the files, some of them have large grey areas covering parts of the picture?

Posted on Sep 26, 2008

I have had this phone for no longer than 3 or 4 months and one day this week I wanted to take a picture but the camera doesnt work and neither does the video. I didnt get it wet or drop the phone recently, and it just stopped working randomly. I try to go to the picture album and press take photo, but it doesnt do anything either and then it like freezes my phone. The phone still has a warranty, so if it take it to the store will i be able to get a new one?

My LG KP500 won't start up - It just keeps flashing the logo.


I had the same issue with my KP500's screen flashing the logo.
The best way to resolve this is take it back to where you brought it from. They will send it off (which they did with mine) for a software upgrade and within a week you will have it back with no more issues and at no cost to you.

There is no quick fix solution. If you mess with the phone it voids your warranty.

Good luck!

Static in the background when i am using the phone


hi there..

you must "reset" your LG phone back to factory setting by reading it first at manual book (if you have).one thing you must remember just copy the phone book that stored at phone memory to your sim card.copy the photo/song that you save in phone memory to memory card 'cause when you reset your phone it will back to new again with empty phone memory...
