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....

My olympus tough tg-310 got wet inside with salt water form the beach now it won't turn on please help.


There is very little that can be done, salt water will corrode metal on contact, all eletronic parts have been compromised, if the memory card is still intact save your pictures and remove it from the camera to transfer to new hardware. Replacing the camera unfortuneately is the only option.

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

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

Hi when i plug my charger in it sparks and will not turn on or charge


Are you talking about the laptop charger? Was it wet when you plug it in?

Wipe the plug with dry cloth and try to plug it in directly to another wall socket. If it still cannot power up it means the charger must have been fried. You must replace it. You cannot repair the charger by yourself.
I suggest you bring the charge to a radio shack for spec reference

Tomtom one repair


If the green light does not even come on when you plug in the charger you must have an issue with the logic board. Did the GPS get wet or did it drop, was there anything else the preceded the moment it stopped working? There is a company that sells GPS logic boards for TomToms : GPS Repair

Not connecting


i was having a problem getting my hbm-730 to connect/turn on with my enV. i took the suggestion of turning phone off and then turning it back on. i had already removed the device from my phone thinking i had to reprogram it.

when i turned the phone back on, i was able to pair up my bluetooth with my phone with no problem. now, we'll see what happens next time.....but that worked for now.
