Question about LG VX-8700 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Lg 8700 Hi I had a lg 8700 and got it just barely wet at the beach and it won't turn. Will light up when plugged in to charger. Want to get it repaired. Insurance offered me the Samsung u550 or something as comparable, but tech at Verizon said not a good exchange, so I downgraded to the Lg 8350. Does anyone fix cell phones, or could the battery just be replaced on the 8700??? no drivers for my lg 8700

Take the phone apart and put it in the fridge for a day. take it out and put a hair dryer on it for a few hours. i got my lg 8700 seriously soaked and it came around. just depends on what got shorted out. good luck.

I can help fix your phone. The advice u got from the VZW rep is mostly not true. I have been a LG fan for awhile (about 11 years), until some of their recent pathetic models (Choc.1, vx8600, etc.), which I did owned, and very disappointed. I switched to Samsung and feeling fine again.

The U550 and VX-8700 are very similar in design and features....u can compare them here.... http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/compare.php?id%5B%5D=1104&id%5B%5D=1414&id%5B%5D=&id%5B%5D=&id%5B%5D=

The Samsung will outperform LG....

LG NEON GW370 CELL PHONE WON'T TURN ON


Check the battery first, connect into charger. If phone was wet, you need to clean it in isopropanol. Or just dry for few days (you can use hair dryer) carefull to dont overheat phone. Even if you think phone is dry it can be still wet. Check if connectors from charger are not dirty. (Check charger, and battery) best way is to borrow battery from friends phone

My droid x got wet and after a night in rice it still won't turn on. Any chances of fixing it?


Let it remain in the rice bowl for a bit longer, after per say another night of "cleansing," insert the battery, which should also be in rice, back into the phone and plug it into the charger give it say 10 min, and try to turn on the phone, if this doesn't work, then either your shelling out 80 bucks after insurance for another phone, or god forbid there is no insurance, try going back to a flip phone. They are cheaper and not as liable to leave you stranded on the beaches if it should get wet again :-P

Hi,
As the mobile is wet the circuit board inside the mobile will be fully wet.Due to this the connections between the circuits get connected(short circuited) and the mobile may behave in such a manner that it should not behave. Never put the wet mobile in charger even though it is dry and working properly.There may be water logs present in the mobile circuit which may be dangerous to the person who is using the mobile.It may lead to electric shock.
Take the mobile to the authorized dealer of your make and they will remove the water log from the mobile circuit board and it will be fine .I recommend you not to do this by yourself.
Thank You
