Default Experiencing Problems with my L9

Hello:

After owning my Optimus L9 for a little over a month now and having problem after problem getting my service fully working I am experiencing some weird problems with the phone. Sometimes when I text it automatically starts backspacing (don't know if I am doing something wrong), a couple nights ago I had it on and plugged in. It was still charging so I decided to turn it off for the night and let it finish but then it got stuck on the LG boot screen so I had to pull the battery. The home button didn't work temporarily today and it looks like it instead took screenshots. I was able to fix it by turning it off then on again. Also I had signal problems a few nights ago and I think I ended up having to turn it off then back on again to get a better signal. Overall very strange behavior. Should I try a restore? Thanks for your help!

I would suggest an FDR - It sounds to me like someone might have spilled something on it. Erratic behavior in any electronic device is usually indicative of failing components or a spill. I would suggest investigating the battery bay for signs of spill - if none is apparent then ask t-mobile for a replacement.

Backspace thing is annoying, happens to me to. I think it happens after you repeatedly hit the button multiple times in a row. Quick fix before it erases everything is to hit backspace once...it'll stop the erasing. And maybe for future, just hold the backspace instead of quickly tapping it.

Thanks for your responses! The phone seems to be doing better now. I still have the backspace problem but I will just make sure that I don't keep pressing backspace. Still a lot nicer than my Optimus V.

I was having the backspacing problem too and my phone added a new wrinkle to that problem by randomly inserting characters as well as deleting others, very annoying.

I stopped using the stock slider keyboard and went back to Swype which I personally like a lot more than Go SMS keyboard or the stock one. That did not fix the issue however in the stock email app that came with the phone. I downloaded K-9 Mail app and the combination of using Swype and K-9 has fixed the random deletion and insertion of characters. It's probably fixed using the stock keyboard or Go SMS keyboard too but I haven't tried it.

Hope this helps.

Nah dude who keeps switching keyboards, you probably have a bad digitizer. You can get a new one for 11 bucks on ebay and watch a youtube tutorial for the replacemenr. Not difficult just do not remove the lcd from the metal thing around it. And dont bend sharply. Overall an easy repair though.

I had to do a factory reset of my L9 this morning. Was running a little flaky. The e-mail app that I use, crashed; and when the Google Crash Reporter launched (for the first time on the phone), the Terms were listed in Spanish, even though the language setting is on English.

As I was looking at the language settings, the phone also reported Google Play Newsstand crashed. I have never used that app, nor do I want to, so I have no idea why it crashed.

At that point, I did the factory reset.
