    My cell phone's "car kit" mode is now on and I can't turn it off. I think my 1 year old tunred it on pressing a series off buttons. I can't use the phone now and need to turn it off.

    I had the problem and all I did to fix it was plug it in to my phone charger and it went away as the same as it came on.

    Hey, my vx8300 got dropped and is now stuck in car kit mode, i've tried everything to get it out. Is there a setting somewhere in the menu where i can get it out? I've looked everywhere i thought it would be but unsuccesful. Also does the charger method actually work? If so for how long does it have to be on?

  • Dannysgirl05 Dec 16, 2007

    i was snowboarding and i pulled my phone pulle my phone out because someone called and i could not hear anything so i went farther down the hill and went back to normal mode then it went back to car kit mode

  • Joy M Jan 03, 2008

    Same here. I looked at my phone, and it is in "Car Kit" mode. (Can't blame it on the kids, I dropped it!) And I can't find anything in the manual that addresses it, including in the index or glossary. I guess I'll try the compressed air thing...


  • Anonymous Jan 28, 2008

    i left my phone outside for an hour when it was really cold today and i picked it up and it said car kit, same problem. i read online to spray compressed air into where you plug the charger in and that fixed it

Same problem....i found a neat solution to this one..see if it works for you too...i simply charged my phone as much as possible, drove to a nearby lake(you should do this while its light outside for best effect's to be noticed), and then i THROUGH the damn thing as farrrrr as sure that you spend the time so as to take it all in..then, go to your nearest retailer and get any new phone that does not say LG on the worked for me and i'm glad to say that it definetly decreased any homicidile thoughts i had been having due to the issue.

I called Verizon and the tech had me plug it into the wall and shut it off and on while it was plugged in. Sure enough the note of car kit went away. The phone is working fine now.

We sprayed the place where you connect it to charger with compressed air and it would come out of car kit. Had to carry the air can and spray it a couple times but it has been out of car kit since.

If you can open the phone try cleaning it near the system connector. The pads of the system connector may be not connecting properly or there could be a bad connector. There is a switching IC that switches from headphones to phone mic and speakers. this chip may be damaged or lines to it may have got corroded due to moisture.

When i open my laptop ( toshiba satellite pro 4600 ) suddenly off in low battery. After charge when i open it saw massage in display (safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt,...

When the System comes back on in Safe Mode, all unnecessary utilities are shut down or do not work, such as your speakers or the sound. If you open Safe Mode with Networking, than you are connected to a Network, but you still can only do a few tasks that Safe Mode allows. After you restart your computer and run it normally, than all functions will return to their normal operations, including your speakers and sound.

I own LG VX8360 and can't figure out hoe to turn ringer on. Can you help me?

To restore the ringer it will depend on what mode your phone is in:

Vibrate Mode:
Sets the phone to vibrate instead of ring.

To set Vibrate Mode, with the flip open, press and hold the # key .

To return to Normal Mode, press and hold the # key again.

Sounds Off Mode:
Quickly deactivate your phone's sounds when you're in a place where phone sounds would be disruptive.

From standby mode with the flip open, press and hold the lower side volume key for 3 seconds. To return
to normal sounds mode, press and hold the upper side key.

Airplane Mode:
Turning on Airplane Mode will disable all wireless communications.

1) With the flip open, press the Menu key.
2) Use the Directional Key (top center of phone) to scroll to 'Settings and Tools'.
3) Press the 6 key for Phone Settings.
4) Press the 1 key for Airplane Mode.
5) Use the Directional Key to highlight a setting, then press OK.

My phone is in car kit mode i cant use my phone how do i take it off?

You have not mentioned the make and model of your phone. In the settings there must be some place where you had specified the car kit. Put it back in the normal mode in the settings. It must be in connectivity thru USB or some such place. Try to find the car kit option and change it.

Transmission locked up, felt like it was stuck in second or third gear. not shifting. shut engine off and restarted , shifting properly now. what causes this.

It was a temporary fault that put the car into limp mode (a safeguard operating condition designed to protect the transmission in case of serious failure). Sometimes a transient fault can occur, and the car goes into limp mode just to be sure it's not for real. Shutting off and restarting the car is the usual way to clear the fault and return the car to normal operation - if the problem was real, the car would've stayed in limp mode after restart, or gone into limp once you started driving again. I wouldn't sweat this one, since it went right back to normal operation.

A clarification on solution #1: Try pressing the tip of the knife (I used the end of a nail file) onto the lower right hand side of the charger area. That's what got it for me. If that doesn't work, try other parts of the end...
