My phone is freezing, running slow, repair did not work, spazzing out! What can I do?

Performing a soft reset can resolve issues like continuous resetting/rebooting, crashing, freezing, can’t make or receive calls, and other general software related problems. This process is similar to rebooting a computer after it freezes up. Phones are small computers after all.

Soft Reset This should not erase your data, but it is always a good idea to do a backup.

  1. Press and hold Power Button. Ignore any other prompts or screen changes.
  2. Continue to hold the Power Button until your device turns off.
  3. Your device should automatically reboot, and turn back on after shutting down.

I did a soft reset, but my phone is still not working correctly. What can I do?

A hard reset can resolve issue like: blank or frozen screen, crashing apps, touch screen problems, no audio, random noises, no call functionality or sync errors.

Hard Reset – **This process will erase all your data** and erase any accounts linked to your device as well.

  1. Turn your device off.
  2. Press and hold Volume Down Button and Power/Lock Button.
  3. Release the keys when the FACTORY HARD RESET screen is displayed.
  4. Press the Power Button to continue.
  5. Press the Power Button once more to confirm.
  6. Your device will now restore. This process may take several minutes.

I replaced my LG E970 Optimus G Charge Port Flex Cable, now it will not work!

  1. Try a different power cable or power adapter. Make sure your cable has not gone bad at the same time. This is a common problem as power surges can cause both your charge port and your cable to go bad. If this doesn’t work…
  2. Plug your device straight into a computer. If your device will charge normally when plugged into a computer, then your power adapter may be bad. If this doesn’t work…
  3. Reattempt the repair from the beginning. Make certain every part is fully plugged in. Mobile device repairs are fussy at times, and redoing a repair is often the best way to troubleshoot any problem you are having. If this doesn’t work…
  4. You may have a defective or broken flex cable.

  2. Redo the repair from the beginning. At the step where you plug your screen into your main board, check your original screen to see if it still works. If neither screen works, this is a sign of something worse then a bad screen. We suggest mailing in your device for testing. If you see…
  3. Blotches on your display, this is a sign of too much pressure on the screen caused in shipping or during installation. Open your device again, and make certain there is no residual glass from your original broken screen. If you see…
  4. Lines down your display, or you have only a partially working touch function, then you may have a defective or broken screen.

  1. I replaced the screen on my phone now no audio will play. I have tried to soft reset and hard reset my phone and still my audio will not respond.after replacing the screen and turning the phone on the audio worked fine until a few hours later.

      The Optimus G has it's main speaker on the bottom of the device. There are 4 receiver slots that plug into the charge port, and 4 copper nubs on the charge port. Double check that your speaker is tight in it's fitting, then make sure all the contact points are there. If they are, and the part is secure, then likely you have a bad charge port. Since your speaker will work for a while, and then cuts out, the part is likely good, just a connection is bad.

        Well this issue is caused by one of two things. Either you need a new battery or your software has been corrupted. I would try a new battery first. If you have a local repair shop you can have them test a new battery for you to see if it fixes the issue. We also offer a mail in repair if you do not have a local repair shop just click this link

    1. Thanks Ryan,

      Normally, parts overheat due to either liquid exposure or a bad battery. If your device has not touched any liquid, then try replacing your battery. This should fix the issue.

      If you got your screen pre-attached with the frame, then you simply got 2 bad screens in a row. If your screen version was not on the frame, then you may need to simply attach your navigation flex cable to your front screen. Once that's done, you should be set.

    1. Thanks A Tlatelpa,

      Try plugging your device straight into a USB port on a computer. If your device power's up, then the problem is not with the port itself, but the battery.

      If you get no life at all out of your phone when you plug it into a PC, then the charge port has gone bad and you will need to replace it. You can do this on your own as it is a relatively simple repair, or you can always mail it in for a technician to fix at: www.phonedoctors.com/mail.

  5. I dropped my phone and had the screen replaced two months ago. In the past two weeks, the phone has been running out of battery even at 90+%, and now the screen registers touches that are not there. Did I get a bad part during the repair?

    Reply
    1. Thanks Drew,

      Not likely since it is this long after your screen replacement.

      Based on your description, it sounds like you actually just have a battery that is going bad. Once a battery goes bad, phones start acting in very odd ways since the power is no longer flowing as it should through the device.

      Start with swapping out the battery, and then see what happens from there.

          In your case it could be a few things it could be an application you installed. It could be a bad manufactured part either the battery or the digitizer. Sometimes parts come from the manufacture with a defect and is not always noticed right away because it will work fine during testing but then starts to malfunction when the device is put to the test and used everyday.

  7. I have a Tracfone LG Optimus Dynamic Model LGL38C. It has been having an issue with accepting calls, regardless of any attempted inputs.

    Then last week I had in the inside pocket in my coat (nylon satin). I noticed it wouldn't turn on so I charged the battery - the screen registered that it was charging the battery, then shut off after 3 minutes. It was able to come on later, however the device appeared to be activating itself, but could not be shut down. I had to remove the battery to get it to power down.

    I put it away for a week or two and today decided to carefully open the phones case and see if there was anything obvious inside. I couldn't find anything obvious, so I carefully reassembled it. It still wouldn't turn on, and I tried one more time to charge it. The phone charged normally, the phone powered up, turned off then back on, and the apps and features work well.

    I'm stumped but fear it will "go dead" again.

    Reply
    1. Quite the conundrum. It is possible that dust inside was shorting out the electronic connections - as to how it got there in the first place, that is not a known factor. Call it strange, but the satin jacket may have somehow disrupted that - it would be the first I have heard of it.

      You did well on inspection of the device. Keep up that care, and you should have no more fears than the regular mobile device owner should need to have.

  8. MY LG optimus phone is only a few weeks old. camera and video worked when new and now all of a sudden it says unable to record video when on a call, when I try to use the video. And I know for sure I am not on a call. I tried restarting phone and shutting off and restarting. i tried storage as internal as well as external. camera works fine. I have another camera app on it called camera MX and the video works fine with that but i really would like to use the video that came with the phone. i dont' want to do a hard reset and lose all my data. i also cleard cashe and date on camera in the app section. Also the alarm will not work, maybe it's a lemon huh. The alarm will not go off it immediately goes to shut off when it's suppose to say snooze or shut off. Thanks.

    1. Thanks Jane,

      It sounds like the app you downloaded has blocked your default program from working. This is actually a common problem. Many apps are hijackers in disguise. They like to block other apps from working.

      The alarm error is unknown, but as you are facing one software error all ready, the only way to try and get your device back will be to do a hard reset. You should be able to plug your device into a computer, and then backup your data before you restore it. Either that, or an SD card should do the job.

      As your phone is an Android device, we suggest using some sort of antivirus protection on your device. Norton, Avast, and McAfee all have mobile versions for free.

  9. My phone is having an issue with its battery. It shows a random percentage of battery whenever I connect it to a charger. Upon removing the charger from the port, the battery will start at 90% if fortunate, but often much less. The device will start normally, but without power it turns off almost immediately. What is wrong?

    Reply
    1. The battery's life in the device itself is short; it is not that it is receiving a full charge, but that it cannot hold much of a charge. Think of a camel in the desert with a malformed hump.

      One hump is full while the other is small. The first hump can hold its full complement of the life-giving resource of water, while the other one has a much smaller capacity. A regular battery is that first hump; the battery in your present device is that second hump.

  10. I have an AT&T Optimus E970. It is a used one I bought on eBay about 3 weeks ago. ( I am feeling that the condition of the device was embellished a bit, but sigh it's too late to change my eBay feedback.)

    The problem it has is with the WiFi and Bluetooth, and just today for the first time an app that I downloaded. The first time during the day that I turn on Bluetooth/WiFi it finds and connects to the other device no problem. But if I break the connection, for example I turn off the Bluetooth speaker, and then turn it on again later it won't find the connection again. So I turn the Bluetooth off on the phone, and this is the problem, it will get stuck turning the Bluetooth (or Wifi) back on and I have to Soft Reset. I find this an issue because I end up restarting my phone on average 4 or 5 times a day.

    I am guessing that the previous owner already did a hard reset before I bought the phone because it was clear of any apps or personal data when I got it. So I am thinking that there is a larger issue with internal hardwear?

    (I bought this eBay phone and it has a shattered back, I got it because my previous phone I had just dropped and shattered the front. I thought it would be much easier for me to swap out the good back on m old phone onto a eBay phone with a broken back piece rather than the other way around.)

      On an LG device, there is not a way to access the data without being able to see the screen. If you absolutely need your information, then you will need to replace the screen of your device before you can get at it.

      Your device is no longer detecting that the camera is plugged in. You may have a loose connection with your camera, so open your device; make sure everything is fully plugged in.

      If everything is still good, you may just need to replace the camera. They are sometimes damaged during the same events that cause your screen to need replacement.

  15. I replaced my Lg Optimus Pro E980 touch screen and it will poweron, all functions work until I replace the back cover. The phone powers off at that time. Is there a reset on this phone or what should I do?

    Reply
    1. Thanks Allen,

      Your device is clearly having power problems here and not operational ones. A reset won't fix this.

      There are a couple possibilities here:
      1.) Something is bent/miss aligned on the device so adding your back cover is causing too much pressure; forcing your device to shut down.
      2.) There is a grounding problem with your battery. Could be the battery is bad, so adding your back cover is somehow syphoning power away from your device; causing it to act like it is dead.

      Check for any signs of bent framing on your device. If everything looks fine, then try replacing your battery with a new one.

      The pixelation comes from a short somewhere inside your device.

      Since you all ready changed your screen, it is likely to be coming from your power flex. We suggest replacing this part next. you could have a bad screen that is causing this, so you may want to contact your source for the parts. They may get you a new one for the part you have now.

  17. I replaced the LCD and digitizer on my LG Optimus LS970 and works beautifully, specially for it being my first time. However, now my back camera won't even come on, only gives me the option to use the front camera. Any ideas?

    Reply
    1. Thanks Adriana,

      The camera will default over to the front for several reasons:
      1.) Software glitch during repair (which happens) is not wanting to acknowledge the part. Restoring your device to factory default settings will fix this.

      2.) Your back camera was damaged during the event that caused your screen to need replacement. Loose circuits won't fall out until the device is opened, so it is not uncommon to have other parts need replacement after repair. Swap the camera out, and you should be set.

      3.) The camera just came partially unplugged during repair. Open your device, double check all your connections, and this should fix the problem.

    1. Thanks Monique,

      Your device is stuck in a boot loop.

      There are several troubleshooting things that can be done to see if the device can be recovered. However, these steps involve having a second screen on hand. We suggest at this point taking your device in to a local repair shop, or mail in your device for repair with one of our techs at: www.phonedoctors.com/mail. Most places will charge a minimal diagnostic fee, and from there can find out what is going on with your device.

      The other option is to order a 2nd screen, and then do your own troubleshooting from there, but most phone part sellers will not accept a part back once it has been used. You would be out the cost of 2 screens and not just one.

      This sounds like a software glitch, but it may be a motherboard failure as well.

      Try restoring the device back to factory default settings. If it is software related, then the restore will fix the problem. Should this not solve it, then likely there is some sort of motherboard malfunction on the device.

      These sorts of problems cannot be repaired.

      Sounds like your digitizer (the part that controls the touch function) is no longer working.

      The E970 has to be replaced as a full screen assembly (LCD and Digi and Front Frame) in order to complete this repair. We have the parts available right here online, or you can mail in your device for repair with one of our technicians at: www.phonedoctors.com/mail.

      1. Greetings Doctor Dan,

        I have another question? is possible that the LG E970 phone digitizer without damaging the display shows any evidence of stroke, because the screen of the phone is intact does not show scratches.

        Reply
        1. Thanks again,

          Not entirely certain of your question here, but in short, it is not possible to replace the digitizer (top glass) alone on the E970.

          The top glass and lower LCD have to come as one solid piece from the manufacturer. Once the top glass is removed, the lower LCD screen will be rendered useless as they are design as one solid piece (something about the way they are made).

          You may not see any physical damage to the display part, but that doesn't mean it will work. In fact, we would be surprised if it does work as this is a fused component on the E970.

  21. I cracked my screen a while back and I was not able to use the touch screen. A few months later I decided to replace it so I ordered a screen digitilizer and lcd. (I don't really understand why the two things I ordered are glued together, but when I took my phone apart for the first time they came out seperately.) Anyways before I took my phone apart the screen still displayed things, but the touchscreen was useless. After I replaced it nothing is displayed and I'm pretty sure the phone isn't turning on. The only thing that happens is the hone charges with the red light flashing every few seconds and after it is charged it turns green. Can't turn the phone on/ no display/ Bottom buttons are not lighting up. Thanks any help is appreciated

    1. Thanks Eric,

      Sounds like your LCD has either come loose, or was accidentally damaged during the repair.

      Without seeing the device, it is tough to say. The Optimus G has issues with the proximity sensor not working after replacement. For some reason, this part does not want to acknowledge screens other than the one it is attached with. It is for this reason that our technicians replace Optimus G screens as a full assembly (LCD, Digitizer, and Front frame). Since the repair here was done as a digitizer only, this would explain why the LCD is not turning on.

      Now the power issue could be connected to multiple things. Since the device charges, power is getting to it. Normally, a device will kick on once a charger is plugged in. Since your device is not doing this at all, you may want to make sure your battery is intact (fully connected, screwed in, and not inflated (a sign it is going out)). If everything looks good here, then we suggest getting your device into a technician for diagnostic testing as there could be several other things it might be.

      If you would like one of our techs to take a look at it, you can mail in your device to us at: www.phonedoctors.com/mail.

    Reply
    1. Thanks Cassy,

      Sounds like you have 2 issues here:
      1.) Your device is stuck in recovery mode. You should be able to find reset instructions on LG's site to allow you to finish the restore without needing your touch screen.
      2.) You may have a bad digitizer (touch screen) since it will not let you past the boot screen.

      Try the restore option first. If you can get your device to fully recover, then you will know if your digitizer is bad also from there. If your device will not restore, then your better off not attempting the repair as most "software malfunctions" like this, cannot be recovered from.

      For a list of recover steps:
      1. Turn off phone.
      2. Press and hold volume down+Power button.
      3. Release keys when FACTORY HARD RESET APPEARS
      4. Press power button to confirm
      5. Press power button to confirm again. Your device will now reset.

      Because it is working part of the time, it sounds like your device has a software bug or virus.

      We suggest restoring your device back to factory default settings. If this solves the issue then your set. If not, then you will want to replace the speaker after the restore.

  25. Hey guys, i have an ls970. Screen turns black and red light flashes randomly, took to sprint, and they replaced it for bad motherboard. Replacement reboots several times like it hangs up loading all the information. Takes a good 25 minutes of rebooting to get running again.runs great for a few minutes then reboot cycles again. Justtyping along then BAM! Black screen and lg logo. Do you beleive this is software and a new rom could fix or be hardware and just buy a new one?

    Reply
    1. Thanks Alex,

      This is a software issue, but a new operating system will not fix it; this error is in the firmware.

      Contact Sprint again, and see if they can get you a different device.

  26. Hi I can't do a factory reset, when I do that, after "confirmed" text, the phone just reboot in a bootloop of lg logo and do that eternaly, I can´t boot up I just can enter in download mode, if I connect to a charger the phone do the bootloop and donn't charge at all :(

    1. Thanks Cesar,

      This is a firmware error on your device.

      Firmware errors are part of the software that cannot be altered. Your best option here will be to contact LG, and see what they can do to get you into a new device.

    1. It will need to receive the instruction settings for using data. I just recently had this occur with my own device; you will need to contact your provider. Anytime a device resets in some fashion (Mine received an OS update.), it goes to its older set of instructions. Contacting them should help you.

      The battery is the issue. The device turning on while the device is plugged in is only true when you have a battery that is putting out the right voltage and amps. If this is not the case the device will not turn on as the device looks to the battery for this voltage.

        I would advise a factory data reset, if that does not resolve this issues, then it sounds like the camera component is likely to have failed. If that is such the case i would very greatly recommend a replacement device to fully remedy this issue. Current suppliers offer replacement phones but not replacement parts.

          You have few options you can either do a soft reset or factory reset your device or you can try to down load a third part keyboard for your device. Preferred Method

          Press and hold the Power button.
          Select Power off.
          Select OK.
          Note Allow several seconds for the device to power off.
          Press and hold the Power button until the LG logo appears then release.

          Alternate Method

          Press and hold the Power button (located on the back) until the device powers off (approximately 5 seconds) then release.
          Note Allow several seconds for the reboot process to complete. Perform a factory data reset only if absolutely necessary as it removes all data including:

          GoogleTM account
          System and app data
          App settings
          Downloaded apps
          Music, pictures and videos (It is recommended to backup this data).

          Note Notes:

          Personal data (e.g., Wi-Fi passwords, browser bookmarks, etc.) can be backed up to Google's servers .
          An alternate reset method is available if the device can be powered on and is responsive.

          Ensure the device is powered off.
          Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power button.
          When the LG logo is displayed release the Power button only then immediately press and hold the Power button again.
          Release both buttons when the Factory data reset screen displays.
          From the Factory data reset screen, select Yes.
          Note Utilize the Volume Up/Down buttons to highlight and the Power button to select.
          Select Yes to start.
          Note Utilize the Volume Up/Down buttons to highlight and the Power button to select.
          Note To setup the device after the reset has completed, refer to Initial Activation and Setup.

      No I don't think it is destroyed but it might need a little extra work. I would just make sure that the clips that hold the back cover in place are not broken off in the housing as this will make it hard to put the new cover on.

  83. Hello! So yesterday my lovely twins took my LG Optimus L70 and threw it in the sink at the same time I was pouring our the hot liquids from sautéing chicken. I immediately took the phone out, took it apart and wiped down where I saw it was wet. The phone was acting crazy. I took alcohol soaked q-tips and cleaned every place I thought the liquid could get it. Took it apart, got to the motherboard and cleaned that as well. The phone is turning on fine, no problems. But, to accept phone calls or do anything on the phone....NOTHING! The touch screen is not responding. Is the phone a total loss? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank You

      I would not call it a total loss yet. I would clean it again with 95% alcohol then I would check the connections and make sure that they are seated correctly.

        So, I didn't have 95% alcohol only could find 91% so I cleaned the phone with that and placed it in a bag of rice so absorb whatever moisture may have been in the phone. Left it in there overnight and now the phone is turning on but nothing is happening with the screen at all...it stays black "/ . Any other suggestions???

    1. Hi CLifford
      With out knowing what device you have it is tough. Here is how to turn on an apple product if the power button does not work....Plug it in to the charger. If it is a Samsung it takes a little more but is possible. First you have to plug the device in and wait for the battery to show up on the screen. When the battery shows up if you remove the battery and put it right back in the device thinks that the power button was pressed and will turn on. Then you will have to turn off the sleep mode in both cases.

  87. I have a LG-LS970. About a week ago, I dropped it in the toilet. Of course this caused problems. The phone wouldn't turn off and the phone is one solid piece so I couldn't remove the battery. The main thing effected was talking on the phone. Had to use speaker phone to communicate. Fast forward to yesterday. The phone no longer turns on. I need to get the contacts off of it. Unfortunately, I didn't have Google backup enabled. When it's plugged into the computer, the red solid light turns on but the phone won't turn on. Volume down and power button doesn't do anything either. What can I do to get the contacts off of the phone?

      This could be several things but here is what I would try first. I would back up the device if possible then factory reset the device. If this resolves the issue then reinstall the back up. If the issue comes back then factory reset the device and install the apps back one at a time and see if you can find the one that is the issue. You might need to check the back ground processes also and make sure that all of your RAM is not being used up and slowing your device down to the point of crashing.

    I am writing you with the following problem, that arose suddenly: I have a LG Optimus E975. Some days ago, something weird happened: the three bottom buttons in the LCD screen ("back", "home" and "setting" buttons) stopped working. They still ligth up as usual, when the phone powers on - but there is no reaction when pushing them (no light, no vibration, no nothing). It means I have to restart my phone everytime I want to access a another app - which gets kind of tiring. Beside from that, the touchscreen and main page is totally fine.

      It sounds like your power button is sticking. I would try cleaning around the power button with a dry tooth Brush to see if that helps. If nt you might need the button replaced. We offer this as a mail in repair at PHONEDOCTORS.com

  136. Hi, i have two odd problems with my lg e970 at&t. 1. i can't send attachments with text or use internet apps over data with roaming but call and text work fine. We have 3G but doesn't show.

    2. I spilled a little water on the phone while charging, i unplugged, dried it off, and let it dry a day. Now it only charges when on, plugging it in while powered off makes a clicking sound and powers it back on.
    Also it only charges with one of my usb cables instead of others like it used to.

      It sounds like you have a problem going on with the logic board. It almost sounds like you have what is called a cold solder joint that when the device warms the solder joint opens up losing connection causing the device to power down. Why the frig thing worked is beyond me. If it is new as you say I would take it back and see if you can get a new device. If that is not an option we offer a mail in repair at PHONEDOCTORS.com.

      It sounds like the software has become corrupted and the device might be rendered unusable. This might help I have used this several times.
      In case your smartphone is stuck in a boot loop you should try to wipe the system (factory or hard reset) and clear cache.

      A boot loop might happen after applying an official or custom Android update, or after flashing a pre-rooted firmware and so on. Anyway, learn how to unbrick your LG G2 by following:

      Enter your LG G2 in recovery mode.
      Then use the recovery mode and clear cache.
      In order to do so select “wipe cache partition”.
      Return to recovery menu and select “wipe dalvick cache”.
      Go back to main menu of recovery and select “reboot system now” in order to boot into Android OS.
      Don’t forget to make a hard reset too.

      The LG E970 is still a powerful little phone and should not yet be giving issues like this. I would recommend you restore the phone to factory new condition. A lot of times this can resolve issues you are having with the software on the device.

    1. Hey there Froyo, thank you for your comment.

      From the set of issues you are describing it sounds like the most likely culprit would be Throttling. It's a fairly common practice for carriers to throttle unlimited data plans after a certain amount of data has been consumed in one billing period.

      Do you know if you are on an unlimited data plan? Do you know if you are above a "Throttling Threshold?" Do you know if the issue has come and gone as billing cycles reset?

      It doesn't sound like something that would require a physical repair and in the worst case a Factory Reset might help resolve the issue.

      Thank You,
      Matthew Jones.

    Reply
    1. Hello Nsusha Sharif, thank you for your question.

      The LG F240L is an Optimus G Pro. The way the soft keys work on that device is that they are part of the charge port flex cable. They sit in the back of the phone and the digitizer of this device acts almost like a protective layer.

      It is not uncommon to have these parts misalign after a screen replacement is completed. Do you know if the phone has been repaired recently? If the phone has had the screen replaced, this part might be slightly out of position which could be causing this issue.
      If the device has not had repairs performed on it, do you know if the device has been dropped? It's not uncommon that a good drop can dislodge that component as well.

      I would recommend examining the charge port on this device and see if it appears out of place. If it does, seek out a replacement for the charge port.

      Thanks,
      Matthew Jones.

    1. Hello Trinity thanks for the question.

      Do you know if this device has been modified? (Such as having a custom flashed ROM or has been rooted?) I have seen this exact issue with non-stock firmware running on these devices. If it has not been modified then there is a chance that the device is starting to fail.

      I've seen this issue occur when a component on the board is in the early phases of failing. If you have a device with components failing, it might be best to seek a replacement device or investigate your ability to upgrade through your carrier.

      I hope these suggestions have helped,

    Reply
    1. Hello Paula, thanks for the question.

      It sounds like you have a bad Over The Air update. That as it may be 3 things can cause this update to error out. The first is being connected to the original carrier for the phone. Second make sure the device is powered on and connected to Wi-Fi. Third and most important please ensure the device has free space to download the update. The LG phone has updates pushed out to the device whenever they become available, so the phone will immediately start the download. With that in mind if the device has no free space for the update, it will also not have room for text messages, hence why rebooting gets messages to pop up. The phone when turned off deletes the incomplete update and downloads the text messages, before staring another attempt on the update.

      Thank you

  161. Hi for days now my L-70 smart phone is not coming on the tech at our local store tried I tried but no luck what can u suggest please

    Reply
    1. Hello Dereck and thanks for your question,

      If your L-70 won't turn on there are a few components you want to troubleshoot and determine which one is responsible for the power issue.

      Anytime a phone refuses to power on, the first thing we check is the charging port. If the phone shows no response to being plugged into power, there is a chance the charge port is not sending power into the phone.
      Does the charge port feel loose or wiggle around? Did you have to hold the phone in a certain position to get it to charge?

      Another thing to check is the battery of the device. If the battery is completely dead, it can prevent the phone from turning on. Replacing the battery might jolt the device back to life.

      If you've investigated both the charge port and the battery, there is a chance something more serious has gone wrong with the phone. It might be worth it to take the phone to a technician and have them diagnose the issue.

      I hope this has helped,
      Matthew Jones.

  162. My LG Optimus Exceed 2 fell from where I had placed it. When I picked it up the screen was bright blue, went black and was unresponsive for 2 days. Afterwords, the only response I could get from it (and it would only do this sometimes) was a bright green screen talking about a hardware reset. Recently, however, when I have tried to replicate said screen, I got blank; not strictly black, but a backlit black screen, with sporadic green pixels. When I recently took it to the verizon store (my provider) they said it was a corrupt file that I had downloaded onto my SD card.

    So as I gather, my phone got a virus that killed it, or is there a way to get it returned to a working fashion?
    Thanks.

    1. Hello Bruce and thanks for your question.

      From what you are describing it sounds like the display on this device could have suffered some damage when it fell. I would recommend a screen replacement and see if that resolves the green screen issue.

      As for the phone potentially having a virus, that should be something a simple Factory Reset would resolve. You may need to take the phone to a technician with a computer. They can plug it in and reset the phone to the factory new state using the computer.

      I hope this has helped,

      From the error message, it sounds like there might be another App on the phone utilizing the microphone or perhaps playing sounds. I would investigate your recently used Apps and make sure one isn't sitting open ready to play audio or something.

      I spoke to one of our technicians about this issue. He has seen this message before and has suggested you use an App which will let you control which audio devices are enabled and which Apps they are routed to. One App currently available is called SoundAbout.

      If you ultimately don't find success using an App, I suggest you restore the phone to it's factory default condition.

      From the issues you are describing it sounds like the device is experiencing some motherboard related issues.

The best resolution that I can offer for a faulty motherboard is to replace the device entirely.

I uninstalled it yesterday and they give you questions after the removal and 1 of them is removing important data. Ugh so last night I set my alarm and used the button to make my phone go dark. Woke up today, no alarm went off, the time stuck at the time I went to bed. I tried to swipe to unlock my phone it unlocked for maybe 2 seconds then the screen dimmed right away and locked back up. I have it set to dim and lock up at 2 minutes, I double checked it. Now its saying Mlt something. I forgot already I'm sorry. But its either there's a fault with it or there is something missing in it. It keeps shutting down. I'm not sure that I want to root the phone because I have no idea what that will do if we can afford to get the metro service turned on in the next few months. I've seen a fix where you enter numbers a hash tag asterisk in the keypad its supposed to let you into the phone special menu to where you can turn it off.

      It is very common for the speaker on this phone to fail, the ear speaker and the loudspeaker are two sepereate devices on this phone. If you can hear callers on the loud speaker, the speaker is fine and you have a software issues. If this is the case, attempt a factory reset on this phone. Keep in mind you will loose your contacts and data. I would suggest backing up the phone to google cloud, or to Dropbox.

This can be an issue with android from time to time. To remedy this issue I would recommend flashing the device with its stock ROM via a computer should take care of this issue. Ultimately if flashing is not an option then I would recommend contacting LG Customer Support to see if they offer support for this device.

      Thank you,

    1. Hello Gee,

      From what you are describing, there could be an issue with the LCD which is causing it to shut off. There could be a software issue, in which case I would recommend Factory Reset and "Wipe Caches" which may resolve the issues you are having. There could be something physically wrong with the Proximity sensor which could account for this issue. If that is the case then replacing the Proximity sensor may fix your device. If all else fails, it may be time to replace that device. :'(

    1. Hello Perez and thanks for your comment.

      From the issue you are describing it sounds like the LCD may have been damaged during the Digitizer replacement. The exact issue sounds like a blown backlight coil. The backlight on this device is a evenly disbursed layer of LED light which makes the image displayed glow. If the backlight has failed it presents with this issue of being able to see the screen but, only when external light is directly on it.

      I would recommend you replace the entire screen or utilize a "Complete Screen" replacement.

      I hope my suggestions prove to be helpful.

      Sorry to hear about that keyboard issue you are having. From the issue you are describing it sounds like you may want to try another keyboard on your device. The google voice keyboard is offered for free in the play store. Swift Key has a trail for 30 days I believe, free from the play store as well. After your new keyboard is set up and installed it should contain the "asterisk" symbol.

    1. Hello Juanita and thanks for your question.

      From the issues you are describing it sounds like the phone is stuck in whats called a "Boot Loop." The device appears to be attempting to turn on but, is unable to move past a certain point in the startup process and so it shuts off and tries to turn on again. I would recommend restoring this phone to it's "Stock ROM" using a tool called the "LG Flasher Tool".

      If you reset the software and are still having these issues then there may be something more going on with the motherboard inside the phone than what we initially suspect. If the motherboard is having issues then I would recommend a full device replacement as diagnosing and resolving motherboard issues can be very difficult and expensive.

      I hope my suggestions have been helpful.

    1. Hello Saiky and thanks for the question.

      From the issues you are describing it does sound like it is time to replace that battery. If you experience issues where the device dies when attempting to utilize more power out of the battery, Taking a photo with Flash, attempting to turn on, etc... then it could indicate that the battery is no longer able to output the required voltage/amperage.

      I would first replace the battery and test to see if that resolve the issue. If you are still having issues with the device after replacing the battery then I would look into replacing the entire device.

    1. Hello Judith and thank you for your comment.

      From the issue you are describing, it sounds like the battery in that tablet might have gone bad. I would seek out a replacement for the battery in that device. I'm not 100% sure which device you have. You posted in the LG Optimus G repair thread but, you describe this device as a tablet. I do know that LG makes a tablet called the "G Pad" and the batteries themselves cost around $50. If you are looking for someone to install the battery for you, they would probably charge as the G Pad is a repair which takes a moderate level of patience.

      Now generally speaking, with the screen damaged your device is more susceptible to internal damage. If you imagine the analogy of the edges, back, and front glass form the four walls of a building. Each wall is load bearing and supports the other. If one of those walls is damaged, it compromises the integrity of the entire structure. You wouldn't think that a large piece of glass would be important for the well being of the device but, that glass is very strong and reinforces the tablet and prevents it from flexing. If that glass has been broken for a while, there is a slight chance that it is in part responsible for the issues you are experiencing. The glass as one solid piece distributes the pressure from your fingers. When it is not one solid piece, it can cause uneven areas of pressure and allow more force onto components like the battery which could lead to them failing earlier than expected.

      Sorry to hear about that LG optimus issue you are having. From the above issue you are describing it sounds to be your device is having motherboard issues.

      From what you are describing it sounds like the device is having an issue where it will not turn on. If you phone is unresponsive to power, either from a battery or from plugging it into a charger, there could be an issue with the motherboard of the device which is preventing it from powering on. If possible, I would return to your service provider and ask them to investigate the issue further.

    1. Hello Johny and thank you for the question.

      From the issue you are describing it sounds like there could be an issue with the power circuitry inside the phone. This could be a fault on the motherboard or possibly a damaged connect. (I see damaged connectors frequently.) The real concerning thing is that replacing the original battery did not allow the phone to turn on. That would indicate that there is an issue with the power circuits inside the phone. I would recommend taking this phone to a repair provider for service. Another option to consider with the LG Swift G is for a device replacement. There are quite a few devices that have come out since the LG Swift G and upgrading might be the best viable option when you weigh factors like cost vs. value vs. usability after the repair. (I wouldn't recommend spending more than $100 on a phone that might not last another year when you can get a new one that should last that year for around $100.)

    1. Hello KayLee and thank you for your comment.

      From the issue you are describing it sounds like a combination of the battery and microphone being just worn out. Batteries do fail over time and manufacturers make them replaceable for this reason. The microphone, however, should not necessarily wear out but, depending on environment it could be exposed to liquids or dirt that could be causing the problem.

      I recommend cleaning any microphone holes with a can of compressed air. (Be sure to fire the can of air upright and do not shake the can while spraying. Always spray the can into the air first, to rid the straw and nozzle of any liquid that might have gotten in the air stream.) Once you've blown out the microphone holes, give it a test. If you're still having issues, check the phone for liquid damage. If you see any stickers that appear to be bright red they could be indicating liquids have come into contact with that part of the phone. Generally these little stickers are white and turn red when water dissolves a white mask in front of the red backing.

      If you are able to, I would take it into a repair provider and have them look it over. A new battery and microphone seems like it should cost no more than $100.

    1. Hello Tinya and thank you for the question.

      From the issue you are describing it does sound like the phone is having an issue preventing it from turning on. From what you've described it could be a number of things ranging from the battery itself no longer holding a charge to a damaged component on the motherboard.

      When was the last time the phone was used? If it has been sitting off for a long while, you may need to charge the battery for a very long time before it will actually have enough power to turn on the phone. The reason for this is that batteries actually continue to deplete the remaining charge even when not being used. This "Phantom Drain" is responsible for lowering the device's battery well below the safe "low limit".

      If you are unable to get the device to power back on after charging for several hours, you may look into replacing the battery on this device. If that does not work, I would look into replacing the device completely.

    1. Hello Samuel and thank you for your comment.

      From the issue you are describing it sounds like there could be a couple of issues wrong with this device. Generally speaking this sounds like it could be a Battery issue. If possible, I would start by replacing the battery in the device to see if that allows it to turn on all the way. If a new battery doesn't work, I would try to perform a software restore and flash the phone back to its "Stock ROM". Searching "LG LS970 Stock ROM" should point you down the right path. If you are still having issues having changed the battery and restored the phone then I suspect the issue is with the motherboard and my best recommendation would be to replace the phone entirely at that point. (Buying a new motherboard is essentially the same a buying a new phone. So you might as well just buy a new working phone.)

      I hope it ultimately doesn't come down to a full replacement but, I hope my suggestions prove to be helpful.

    1. Hello Nel and thanks for the question.

      From the issue you are describing it sounds like the device is failing to boot up. When a device fails to complete its boot process it could indicate a few different issues. Generally, the most commonly seen issue is software corruption. This is usually also easily remedied by plugging the phone into a computer and performing a "Factory Restore" while the phone is connected in "Download Mode." If this sounds like too much, I can offer this service at any of my PHONEDOCTORS locations and also through our national mail-in repair service.

      If the software on the phone isn't the problem, then the next most likely candidate would be the battery. Generally speaking the battery in the phone should last at least two years. If you are experiencing battery issues, it could present with the phone reporting improper battery percentage or even shutting down with 20-30% remaining on the battery. Replacing the battery may allow the phone to finish booting as the current battery might not be putting out enough charge to power the phones booting operations.

      I hope my comments prove to be helpful.

    1. Hello Ericka and thank you for the comment.

      I am not sure what the cause of the issue is but it does sound like the device has had some type of software issue which is preventing it from turning on. I've seen this before with LG phones and the fix is to "Flash the Stock ROM" on the device. Performing a Google search for "Flash stock ROM for LG Optimus F6" should point you into the direction you'll be looking for. (I caution you that looking to download anything on the internet is dangerous so use your best discretion and don't download just anything... Only trust a website which appears to be reputable and has active user conversation on it. Odds are, if the page is just full of links to other pages, its spam and wants to attack your computer in some way.)

      There is a free program, it is not made by LG but, it works on LG phones. It's called the "LG Flash Tool" and you can use it to perform the software restore. You will need to locate the original "Stock ROM" for this device. Again, this is not a piece of software that is normally distributed so you will need to find a copy and use your best judgement to steer clear of any undesirable websites.

      I hope my comments have proven to be helpful.

I have LG Optimus G Pro F240L, It was working fine except the battery was taking longer to charge ( More than 4hrs). 5 days ago I dropped it and the screen got a small crack but the touchscreen wasn't affected and it continued to work just fine until 2 days ago it started overheating and suddenly it can't boot up unless it is plugged to a charger. If unplugged from a charger the screen starts acting weird and the device turns off. But if a charger is plugged it works normally. I am thinking of replacing the battery..Will this be a smart decision ?

    1. Hello Jamal and thank you for the question.

      A battery for the LG Optimus G Pro should not cost very much. Certainly less than replacing the device outright. There is really one thing to consider before spending money on the phone.

      How long do you want the LG Optimus G to work? If you only want it to work for a little while longer before you get a new phone, then I would consider the battery. If you're in a position to get a new phone, I wouldn't spend the money on a battery. The reason for this is at best a new battery buys you a few months. A new phone should work fine for a few years.

    1. Hello Ron and thank you for the question.

      From the issue you are describing it does sound like you are having an issue with the Proximity Sensor on that device. The Proximity sensor is a very small component responsible for sensing light. When light is blocked off from this sensor it tells certain applications to blank the screen during things like a Phone Call. The reason for this behavior is that the intention of the sensor is to determine if the phone is up next to your head while you're on a phone call. You'll notice that it only blanks the screen in applications that would assume you put the phone to your head. It's not really a proximity sensor as it doesn't detect the presence of something, rather it works by detecting the absence of light and inferring that the phone is being used a certain way. Sorry to be so technical but, it's important to understand for this particular device.

      The problem you are experiencing is a failure of this sensor in some way. It is not receiving light and therefore any application that would respond by shutting the screen off to prevent accidental button presses will shut the screen off.

      With the LG Optimus G there is a common issue with the proximity sensors, especially if the device has been repaired, opened up, or exposed to any liquids. Unfortunately, as an end user, I would not recommend opening the device as it is a pressure sensitive fit and not having it back together the right way can cause it to not even turn on.

      I would recommend you consider checking into warranty coverage on this device. If it is no longer under warranty then I would look into taking it to repair center and ask them to service the device.

      I hope my comments have answered your question.

      We are sorry to hear about that LG Optumus US780. From the issue you are describing, it would sound to be that your device is having issues with a power controller. With the device unable to power no matter the circumstance, it is likely that the device is may power on if you have second housing to swap the motherboard, that would be my next step. if the device is not able to power on after, I would strongly recommend replacing the device

  196. Hello, I have recently (About one year) acquired an LG Optimus E9870 from my parents. The phone was originally purchased with AT&T, but we switched providers to T-Mobile, with everything working just fine. A couple of days ago, while playing a game on the phone, it stopped working all of a sudden. No rhyme or reason to it, the screen shut off and was unable to turn on. At the time, the battery was at about half charge. As I tried to charge it, thinking there was a glitch in the battery, the light on the lock button illuminated, and the screen displayed a half-charged battery overlapped by a yellow exclamation mark in a triangle, similar to a road sign. After I unplugged the phone, all other attempts to turn it on or charge it failed, with no reaction. I attempted to take out the battery and reinstall it, but no such luck. If there are any suggestions on what to do, I am all ears. Thank you!

    1. Hello, Andrew

      Sorry to hear about that AT&T LG Optimus G issue you are having. From the issue you are describing, it sounds to be that your device may have a back battery, I recommend a replacement if available. Another trick is to plug in the phone without any battery hold the power button and place the battery back in the phone while still holding the power button. This can sometimes trick bad batteries into working. If either of these solutions still result in the same problem, then I would suspect possible mother board issue. To fix this issue I recommend replacing the device.

      From the issues that you are describing it sounds like you may have installed an application which has overridden the preference for the phone to be in the correct orientation. One way to revert this setting should be to perform a "Factory Data Reset." This should remove any application which may be flipping the orientation of the device.

    1. Hello Nelson and thank you for the question.

      From the issue you are describing it sounds like something might have gone awry with that screen replacement. If you are having issues with the phone heating up, the two biggest sources of heat are the Battery and then the IC chips. (Processor, WiFi, Cell Chip, etc...) Do you know if the battery on this device has ever been replaced? It sounds like there might be an issue with the battery and that could be contributing to the heat. You are also describing that the new screen is having issues with blurred images. This may indicate a faulty display or even internal motherboard issues. If you are able to take this phone to a repair provider I would have them look over the phone and diagnose any issues they can spot.

      I hope my comments have been helpful.

      Thank you,

    1. Hello Jasmine and thank you for the question.

      From the issue you are describing it sounds like your phone is stuck in a "Boot Loop". Generally speaking, the best way to resolve an issue like this is to attempt to Restore the device. In this case, using LG Bridge should allow you to restore the device to the most up to date software available for it. If the phone is more than a year old, you may want to check the battery by replacing it. I've seen some phones with this issue turn on with a new fully charged battery. Ultimately if you have no success you may want to take this device to a repair provider. We offer Mail-In Repair services if you are interested in that.

      I hope my comments have been helpful.

      Thank you,

    1. Hello Patrick and thank you for the comment.

      I want to ask what version of Android you are running on that device. It might not be possible for you to downgrade but, you might be able to revert that phone to a previous version of Android. I would recommend Android 4.1 Jellybean is this build tends to be very well supported on most device that can run it.

      If you are still experiencing issues with the device I would recommend looking into replacing the device as it might have something physically wrong with it which could be causing it to have software inconsistencies.

      I hope my comments have been helpful.

      Thank you,

  205. My Lg Optimus F60 has a pixelated screen, I don't know how it happened, but I think it may have been because of heat. Can anyone help?

  206. I have an LG-L38C phone and all of a sudden I don't get an audio notification for texts! I have checked the settings and everything seems to be set as it should be and the volume is turned as loud as possible for all alerts. I get a visual notification that I have a new text but no audio. What can I do?
