    I just got my phone a week ago and has been working great until today. I was listening to youtube then the screen cut out and it wouldnt let me back on. I charged it in my comp and wall but when i turn it on, the screen is dark but all 4 buttons flash. Also, sometimes it will flash lg sign but then go dark again.

    If the four buttons are dim, and flickering, you will need to allow the phone to charge, this is a sign that you exasted the battery to the fullest. Youll see not asingle thing but te four buttons.

    1 take back cover off, Pull battery, and pull Sd micro card out, count 10 secs

    2. replace all back in, and AC wall charge, allow a good 7%, 30 minutes.

    3 turn on phone , long press top right Button 3 sec hold or so.

    The Phone will not run at all with no battery, and that I have had the same problem, it is not a issue.

    If you still cannot get On then you'll have an Option to go into Sprint, have them place another battery in, if turns on

    Battery is defective.

    If not a thing. possable part gave out.

    they'll replace your phone for freee if under 14 days-30 days brand new.

    Good Job Roadster! - Same problem - problem solved - saved me from having to drive back to BB (50mi).

    I had mine on charger overnight - thought it was charging - next morning dvice was DOA - no lights - would not turn on - nothing - thought it was bricked

    Then I searched on line for possible solutions - found Roadsters - now I am back in business!

    Can someone tell me why my contacts won't show?
    Here is the story; i got the LG optimus m and there was a problem with it so they gave me a new one, they tried to sync the info from the old phoe to my new one but they said they couldn't but some things did (although nothing but the things on my sd card). Any ways i was looking at my contacts and it says i have none although i did add contacts, i tryed syncing and everything people do who had the same problems but nothing is working the contacts show on my call log, and texts the names still show and when i click the name it takes me to veiw info (like it would show if you clicked in the contact list) but it's not actually showing in contacts it just says i have none and it's really botherig me. so can someone please help me?

    In Market you may try to view, first thing it asks you, is to sign in or creat a a ccount. do so. Once you have done so by signing in you may now view market.

    Now in Menu/ setting/accts and sync. you turn on gmail auto sync...

    If nothing happens turn off phone remove battery turn On phone

    Okay, it seems that your contacts are on your phone but not showing up. Most likely Your display filters are off. Go to Contacts>Display options. Make sure that your contact accounts are under the Choose contacts to display. Click the arrow next to your account name(s) and make sure the desired groups to display are checked.

    I was charging my phone on my computer through USB port and it was working fine, next thing i know, the screen is black and when I try to turn it on, the 4 buttons on the bottom flash their lights and the phone wont turn on. Ive tried removing everything and pluging things in and unplugging them

    I have an LG Optimus S and yesterday my phone died so I plugged it in. The four bottom buttons were flashing and every 30 seconds it would play the annoying music it plays when the Sprint icon pops up to indicate that it is powering on. That went on for about 10 minutes without it turning on before I unplugged it so I could sleep. This morning I tried the suggestions others had posted, but it would not work. I know that the charger is ok because the phone lights up and only makes the annoying music when it is plugged in.

    When I was instaling another rom from rom manager on to my phone it asked me if I wanted to delete the installed rom and/or delete dalvid cache so I chose both. It said it was going in to flash recovery or something like that. The screen went blank and didnt do anything so I pressed the power button until LG apered on screen but then it went blank agian for about 2 seconds then the buttons lighted up and LG apered on screen. It keeps on repeating this over and over again until the I turn it of by pressing and holding the power switch or it runs out of battery. After I turned it back on it does It once and then turned off. If I plug it in to the mains it turns on again and repeats the cycle over again.

    If your wondering what rom I had before it was by devan froyo. I can't remember exactly because this happened a week ago.

    If there's anything you know that might help all would be helpful.​

    I have an LG Optimus that just shut down, wouldn't come back up with nothing more than a quick flash of the LG logo with no other responses. I read through this and other threads and none of the remedies worked, so I took a couple and combined them and viola' it's working and here's what I did. I pulled the battery and Card plugged in the wall charger and hit the power button. The screen turned on reading that it must have the battery. I believe I kept holding the power button, but with the phone plugged in I inserted the battery. It flashed a couple of times and then the big battery charging icon came on. I periodically hit the power button and when I continued that I was still getting the charging icon, I waited 10 more minutes. While leaving the phone plugged in, I pushed and held the power button and the phone powered up, as good as new. Nothing was wiped during this procedure so I lost no data. I couldn't believe it.

    My optimus locked up :(
    I did a clean wipe, and re-installed everything, not sure what to think yet.
    I am going to start looking on ebay for another phone, dont have alot of cash right now but its gotta be a start.

    G-bread is making the phone funny, and not the ha ha kind..

    Roadster, you've saved my life, man!

    Thanks a lot for those tips.

    My p500 wouldn't charge at all and kept flashing the four buttons and LG logo over the black screen without stopping...

    Taking off everything and letting it rest for 5 minutes unconnected (from charger or PC) made it begin charging again, after reconnecting to wall charger.

    Many thankz and cheers!

    Yay! Thanks soo much Roadster!! Your instructions worked for me! My phone died throughout the night, but when I plugged it into the charger for an hour it still wouldn't turn on or respond or anything, I thought for sure it was lifeless and thought I would have to buy a whole new phone. But I gave your instructions a try and they worked! My phone turned on! I'm going to keep it plugged into the charger for a while until battery is full. God Bless You!
    Sincerely, Ruby
