Yellow screen saying Refreshing

My phone is 6 hours old and reverted to this yellow screen. All I was doing is  looking through the folders! I have tried taking the battery out but nothing happens it just reverts back to the LD start up screen then back to yellow.

    While viewing pictures, phone rebooted with just over half screen going yellow with words "refreshing" on top. No response to any buttons and only way to turn off is to take battery out.

Hi, read the sections on the fallowing links.

But keep in mind that you've the software do his work and wait cause this process take up to
1 hour and 30 min. As you can see what EFS MEDIA BUILDER by AKOM1976 do is read the phone
then you will see a map that you have to rename for the secret switch! There is a secret switch to see
the hidden folders. The map LGAP has to rename to TOTO and when finished vice-versa.

Be patient when re-flash the phone when its ready it show a yellow screen but don't do anything just
wait!!!!! At that time the EFS MEDIA BUILDER is unpacking the files and when the process is done
the phone restart again and install the files after that when it is ready the phone starts up with a brand new software and show the welcome and configuration screen for the time, date and screen settings as it came from the factory.

Read the links below and fallow the steps. This time your phone will be alive!

Lg viewty yellow refreshing screen

you need to reflash it , you can either take it to a mobile repair shop or attemt to find the firmware yourself

My lg ku990 has yellow sreen

maybe this will work.

conect your phone with the usb port.
start in windows the program EFS MEDIA BUILDER by AKOM1976.

select connecton and after that you choose efs explorer select connection.

Now you see the files on your phone
maye there is a folder named as TOTO
be sure that this folder is on your phone!!!
If it does delete the folder named as LGAPP
after that rename the folder named TOTO to LGAPP

richt click and choose refresh.
now exit the efs program.

Turn your phone off and then after a few seconds on
the phone will startup normaly as always and its normal asual.

I hope this will work or you have to back up with the LGMDP euro
an after that choose restore and choose the image file *.nv2

This will work!

Yellow Screen with Refreshing on it!!

it is because your phone has become corrupted . Refreshing comes because it is not able to find RAM . Go to a nearby shop if it is under warranty it will cost you nothing if not still a very little cost will be needed to paid. person will connect your phone with his computer and change the software in 15min. pls vote me thank you

Yellow screen and says refreshing will not turn off

hi open EFS connect phone with USB click EFS explorer click your phone on the top half of the box, find a folder u named TOTO rename it to LGAPP click disconnect warning box may appear just click yes if so now your phone should restart and work normally ;) if not, contact me at my youtube account: addol95
hope it works!

Yellow screen

Dude that's simple but you need to have the sofware back up to reflash your phone in other words reinstall the whole system back on the phone. But how come you don't have a back up since you said that you got a yellow screen bc you were making a back up. Anyways, I did the same thing to hack my Viwety and I had no problems, but since i cannot fix it for you I can only point you in the right direction... go here for more information
