    i have a lg optimus s and since last week it will not charge its just keeps flashing the LG sign over and over. I have tried the hard reset thing and that did not work! sprint wants me to pay $ 100 dollars to get a replacement phone. i am desperate to get my phone to work again. I have not rooted it or any of that other stuff. I just want my phone to start working again.:thinking::thinking::thinking:

    Pull battery and hold power button 30 sec.
    Plug into charger. Aftet 5 min. reinsert battery and cover and finish charging.

    Not sure if this is related or not. But I purchased a extended battery and cover for this phone. When installing it it just got stuck in LG boot loop so I thought it was the battery, so I sent it back. I received the second one today and its doing the same thing. Anyone have an idea why its doing this?

    thank you

    Might need to charge it up first. Sounds like there is no juice in the battery.
    With battery out hold power button down for 30 sec., plug phone into charger. Wait 5 min. then re-insert battery and cover.

    I did what you suggested Andy, soon as I put the battery in, it started flashing again, I tried holding down the power button to turn it off/stop the flashing....nothing still flashing

    If I remember what my Sprint person did for this:

    With power off, press & hold the Power, Home and Vol Down buttons. Then a boot menu appears. Choose something like normal boot or restart. I&#8217;m hoping someone else will pipe in to either agree or chastise.
