Question about LG Cell Phones

1 Answer

When I use my touch screen on my GS505, it doesn't respond correctly. Also all I can use is my dialer screen and when I do it's not correct I press a 9 and it shows that I pressed a seven, when I press 6 it shows 4 and when I press 3 it shows that I pressed 1. Also when you actually press a one of the numbers such as 9, it eliminates the 7, -etc. With the touch pad operating this way, I can't text or use any of my other features. Chris

    I would like to be able to reset it, however, I can't get to the home screen. When ever you touch any button on the phone it takes you to the phone dialer page, which you can't do anything with either.

    I really appreciate your efforts with this issue, however, I don't feel that you have help me resolve anything since I have already done all the things that you have advised. My thinking was that maybe that the phone may have be smart enough to be repaired with some software keystrokes on the dialer, or a hard reset either on the inside of the casing, or with the latest technology of hooking a cable up to the phone using the computer to trouble shoot the phone and repair it. Well, I guess none of these ideas have been thought of by the manufacture. I sincerely appreciate your assistance, but I would like my account credited since your company didn't resolve anything for me. Thanks!

Welcome to Fixya

Sounds like you have a software/hardware problem there. To resolve software issue, try to reset the phone to factory state. From the home screen, touch the phone on the settings tab select reset settings. If same thing will happen after factory reset then the problem would be the touch screen. You might need to replace it or have it calibrated to LG repair center.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Screen calibration screwed up.. need to know how to reset it?

You can get back into the touch-screen calibration routine if you start up the machine with both of the needle offset buttons pressed at the same time ... once you've calibrated the touch-screen you'll be OK again.

Voice mail does not respond to commands from auto dialer screen

i found this on another forum... hopefully it's the answer we are looking for.

Re: Bug with Phone virtual number pad
I've found the answer to this problem!

Part of the problem is that the screen blacks out shortly after a call is connected.
When that happened I pressed the green phone button to get the keyboard back.

This keyboard image is a dummy. It visually responds to your touch but does not send the signal.

After you dial and your call is connected look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see that the normal menu tab changes and appears with the number 5 and letters jkl on it.

Pull it up with your finger. THIS is the keypad you must use when within a call to send number signals. I tested it and confirmed that it works.

If you have pulled up the dummy keyboard by pressing the green call button from within a call then simply hit the BACK button to see the real keypad tab.

If the screen has gone black and you need to light it up again then you can press BACK, HOME, or MENU to see the real keypad tab -- press anything BUT the green call button (which will give you the dummy keypad).

This dummy keypad is a true design flaw but knowing how to get to the functional one makes it an annoyance not a hindrance to using the phone.
