Question about LG CHOCOLATE VX8500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

"Downloading Telus now"

My hpone got left outside and it rained, the sound worked but the screen was very wet on the inside. A friends reccomended that I put the phone in a bowl of rice because it will absorb the water, sure enough, it did! Now the phone will turn on, but once it gets to my regular screen it turns white and says "downloading telus now" it stays like that for awhile and then just shuts off. I would love to know if it is possible to fix this! thanks!

Seems to be a internal phone problem. Your phone is booting into the telus bootloader. Take it to the telus store and they will replace it

Phone is wet. dropped the phone in the rain...it was left outside 45 minutes


One time that happened to us tho it was actually dropped in a pool. We took battery out and dried it for a couple days. When we put the battery back in, it ACTUALLY worked. May not work for everyone or every phone but worth a try.

Razr V3 water damage


Sounds dire. If you look inside the back of the phone, there should be a small spot that turns from white to pink when the phone gets wet. If that spot is bright pink, most repairers won't even bother trying to fix it. Best off buying another phone!

White Screen


I would suggest Ebay.ca to find a used or refurbished phone. Make sure the phone is from Telus, because if it isn't it will likely not work with your service.

well that means you have liquid damage and you have voided your warranty on your device. Your only option is to buy a new phone or take advantage of insurance if you have it!

Startup problem, start screen keeps restarting


Oh tell me about it!. Geat phone, but now mine just displays the telus logo as well, and I know i didn't get mine wet. Taking the battery out is the only way to turn off now. Of course this happened no more then a week after my repair agreement ran out. Had to buy another phone at full price, now the 8100 sits on a shelf with all my contacts on it and no way to get them :-(.

I do not have a suggestion for you, only sympathy. I have been putting mp3s on my phone for about 3 months and there are always a few that seem to be corrupted. They will either not play or more commonly cause my phone to reboot. (even though they work perfecly when burned to cd or played through vlc or winamp) It goes to the telus startup screen and stay there until the phone flashes off and back on. I have tried re-encoding the mp3s with no change in performance. I wonder if anyone knows of a different media player for this phone. Have you called Telus? I know they are a pain to deal with but there may be options. Alternatively I might suggest flashing the firmware and starting fresh.
