    So I wanted to take out an old sd card and put in a new one so I turned off my phone. I replaced the old SD card and when I pressed the power button it didn't turn back on. That's all it does... doesn't charge or turn on, no Red LED. I have tried taking out and putting in the battery, holding the power button (with volume button), but nothing works. When I connect it to my laptop and hold the power button it does the "connected" sound but when I let go it disconnects and the phone still doesn't even power up. Any ideas?

    Is your phone rooted?

    I would first suggest leaving your phone plugged in (charging) at least overnight. Many times if the battery is drained past a certain point the android device will not power on, even if plugged in. Try this first and hopefully it will fix the issue.

    Yea, it's rooted and I have only had it for a month. I think I'm going to send it back to LG while my warranty is still active.

    Same thing happened to me. Bought the f3 on 12/26 at best buy,yesterday it would not turn on or charge etc. When I first bought the phone I also bought Best Buy's replacement plan (1 year). Went back to Best buy and exchanged it for a new one. If it happens again I am going to get a different phone. My phone is rooted but I wouldn't think that would cause this to happen- bricked phone yes, but not charge or turn on at all?

    Annnnnnnd...... it just happened again, after a factory reset. Guess it's back to the store for a different phone.
