    Having the same issue... I purchased my 9400 about 3 weeks ago. It wouldn't hold a charge for more than about 6 hours so I bought a replacement battery. I plugged in my replacement and it worked just fine for the first 6 hours then I powered down. Now when I turn on the phone or try to charge it, it says "Use Genuine Battery. - power off -". Very annoying.

On power up, why does it indicate 'use genuine battery', then shuts off?


If your phone does not indicate it is charging, the 'use genuine battery' message may its way of telling you the battery is defective.

My Verizon LG EnV3 is saying Use genuine battery and then powers down in 10 seconds. I've tried most of the suggestions people have posted and they haven't worked. Please help! I don't kno


I had 3 Verizon LG VX 5500 and 1 told me the same thing. I just ask a friend for an old phone and then I activate it on the verizon website and no problem... it can't be fixed once is asking you for a GENUINE BATTERY, you need to get another phone. Also you can get the same phone in ebay (used) and activated it yourself.

LG VX5200 Battery issue


Sounds like a mfg. defect. I have never had a phone on Verizon system do that, or an LG but I would be curious to see if it kept on occurring once you get a generic battery from a reputable online site.

Lg vx8100 error message on screen: use genuine battery. power off 10 sec cuts off


Not exactly a solution. I tried leaving it off overnight and tried it several times after removing and inserting the batteries. I also cleaned the contacts with contact cleaner and a Q tip. It did not fix it. But I just left it off for 2 days meaning to go to the Verizon store and get it fixed or replaced. But I turned it on now and it fixed itself! Model VX8300. Maybe the contact cleaning did it but it had to dry more. You can use a Q Tip dipped in a cup of water with a teaspoon of Mr.Clean. But then rinse it with a water wet Q tip and then dry it with a paper towel. I used contact cleaner.
