    I think it's hardware, nothing comes on even after a different battery. Has anyone had this happen and revived it? Power button does nothing, I don't see the LG screen or feel a vibration like it's powering on.

    I just noticed although it does not power on and the LED does NOT come on, It does appear in windows as a usb device HSUSB or something like this.

    Looking at my linux box I see the following:

    Bus 008 Device 002: ID 04eb:e030 Northstar Systems, Inc.
    Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

    anyone got the driver? I have a funny feeling if I find it, I might be able to use the LG Update tool. It's not any of the LG drivers that we'd normally use for adb or anything, nor are they the ones that you can download with the update too. :cool:

    lol... thanks. I got a store nearby a few blocks though, just gonna say i lost it.

    They charge the same for a claim whether you loose it or bring in a broken one right? :confused: cause if that's the case i'll just tell them I lost it, gut the parts, maybe see if I can resurrect it in the future if more info becomes available. Either way i think it's semantics, it's broken either way. But i think i'll take my chances on their new dual core paying the difference, I used hdmi like once and it wasn't all that. Plus it has 1GB ram instead. I really would like to go with anything except LG and Hawei but there are no other options in 4G android with high end specs.

    Don't know have never had to make a claim with the insurance. Think idrifta had to pay $30
    Yeah $30

    That is exactly what mine did... same with usb and everything.. wat i suggest is going to a corp store (big store) lol and tell them another store sent you there for a replacement because they couldnt get the order through.. make sure you pick the guy that looks like he doesnt care lol. They should replace it on the spot

    I'm just curious, were you trying a new kernal or ROM, or was it just a random event where you went to use it and it didn't turn on?

    Just curious, but why not do a warranty exchange instead? An insurance claim is around $100 I believe..

    That's what I would do. A warranty claim is $30 to swap it out in the store or $10 to have them mail it in (takes 3-5 days).

    I just went to one of their bigger ones, they told me for $10 I could exchange my phone, but had to wait 15 days. What a bunch of crap. Not only that, but they don't allow you to pay the difference for the other phone (which ironically costs the same so it would be free).

    What I may have to do is just suck it up, buy a connect (cause I can't go 15 days without a phone), then if you guys know anyone interested in buying an esteem I could knock the price down a few bucks on a new phone in the box when I get it.

    Calling LG support right now to see if they will exchange it after pointing out issues that some of those unfortunate users experience pretty badly with the bad batch.

    I havent had it happen to the esteem but the g2x I have, and i have had it happen to the optimus 2, have you tried this, take out the battery and plugging it into a windows box?
  17. joshadaniels04

    joshadaniels04 Well-Known Member

    the problem on the phones I listed are wrong drivers loaded to it and crashed it out. I forced removed the drivers and reinstalled them and updated em with the lg tool. I am not sure if it will help but let me know what happens to it with the battery out and plugged into a windows box.
  18. kanaida

    kanaida Well-Known Member

    Yes, I've tried 2 different batteries, and no battery via usb. It only gets detected as a device (if anyone has the driver and you could post it i'd appreciate it by the way, for the qualcomm), and PG you mentioned LGNPST, how could I try to use it? Never really used that tool before. I'm pretty quick at doing stuff. Plus my device never seems to disappear from the device manager in windows, or the usb device list in linux while plugged in.

    Im going to test something, ill get back to you in a few, the qualcomm drivers shouldnt be hard to find., can you post a screen shot of your device manager in windows? with what comes up for the phone?

    I would advise not sending it into lg. Before they can cover it under warranty it gets sent to their technicians to see if it was a manufacturer error or user error. if any one can find out if a phones been rooted they would be the most capable. I would take my chances with a metro employee ;)

    QHUSB_DLOAD is the device name. It's got an exclamation next to it, but ironically has the driver from qualcomm installed, I managed to find one driver that seemed to work, but the update tool did not seem to see my phone. I googled the device string: USB\VID_05C6&PID_9008&REV_0000

    I did install all 3 sets of drivers that came with the update tool as well

    with battery out, in windows.

    1.the computer sees something correct?
    1.b but it doesnt kick it on, nothing happens?

    2. does qpst see the device?

    3. does the computer read any sd cards?
  23. kanaida

    kanaida Well-Known Member

    Nope, it's the only usb device i can see in device manager or linux

    Allright i found a qualcom one that seemed to make a valid com port, it shows up in LGNPST for about a min or two then dissappears and re-appears. almost like it's rebooting. I turned up the speed of my com port to the max so anything I do would take much less to see if it helps. I'm having trouble registering the MS910 dll though, and it does not show model information, says unknown

    I havent forgot about you I was on hold with the dev. over at sd, they told me to download adreno sdk and call them back when its downloaded.
  25. joshadaniels04

    joshadaniels04 Well-Known Member

    can you post a screenshot man, sd, of your windows device manager? I am trying to help ya out but from what i can tell its not a qualcomm driver issue, seems you ported something bad to the phone, and screwed the commands up

    sys commands I did a whole write up for the gx2 and if its the same problem you should be able to see it in qpst, with the lg drivers, force the drivers I cant see or touch your phone so your eyes are our eyes.
