SOURCE: LG vx 8300

I believe this is what Verizon had me do:

Make sure the phone is off. Take the back off the phone. Turn the phone on...while booting up, plug the phone into the charger. When the phone turns on completely, take the battery out of the back of the phone. Then turn the phone off, unplug the charger. Put the battery back in and turn on the phone. That should have reset it.

I might have missed a step... if I did... just call customer support... and ask for a hard reset. They will walk through it with you. This usually happens because of water damage... but our phone did not have any.. so not sure what caused it.

SOURCE: lg vx 8300 phone was stuck in car kit pressed and held star key

ok you got to open it up then check for corrosion its very hard to spot but if you have a good magnifing glass and lighting you can spot it. scrape it off but not enough to hurt the board then it should work do not try the fork method!!! you could fry your phone if you are not careful. what happened is you got moisture in the phone and it has corroded a spot on the board thats it do not take it to your verizon store they will take your phone and charge you for a new one i think its a liability scam but i hope this helped!

SOURCE: car kit?

No you won't, all you have to do is, while the phone is on, stick a piece of tin foil (a SMALL piece, preferably folded up) into the slot where you plug in the charger and wiggle it around until the phone shuts off. Then plug it in, turn it back on, and everything will be back to normal. The same thing happened to me and this advice was given to me, so I tried it and crazy as it sounds, it worked. Don't waste your money getting it repaired when it doesn't require anything more than a little foil. The number one cause of "car kit" is: babies sticking the phone in their mouths. :)

Lg vx8300 verizon says car kit display have no


Car kit mode means one of two things, first it could have a piece of lint or paper stuck in the charge port making it think there is a car kit plugged in, or second it could be that some moisture got into the port and its giving a indication that something is plugged in. and thats why you're not getting any sound. There is no specific setting to turn on or off 'car kit' mode you can use a paper clip or something and mess with the port a little bit to see if 'car kit' goes away or replace phone

LG 8300 phone the display screen is distorted / scrambled


Hello,

The problem with your phone is that the flex on your phone screen is malfunctioning, that is why the screen is distorted.

All you will need to do is to change the flex on your phone screen because it is now faulty.

Change the flex of your phone screen as advice and you will see that your phone screen will be back to normal.

Take care.

Display says "car kit" - cannot hear anything or be heard on phone


Yes, it can be solved! This happened to mine and Verizon was no help. I finally found the solution on the internet. The little prongs inside the charging port are touching, get a magnifying glass and flashlight and you'll see it. I took a toothpick and seperated them and the problem was fixed instantly!

If the phone was reported lost then the serial number has be locked in Verizon's system, and it cannot be activated. There's nothnig you can do to change that. Only Verizon can unlock the ESN of the phone, and since you're not the original owner of the phone they most likely won't do it but just ask you to return the phone to them.

Check the cable connector (at the bottom of the phone) for debris or corrosion on the connector contacts. Use rubbing alcohol if necessary.
