    Have you tried turning off, removing then reinserting the battery, then turning back on again?

    I think you'll need to call in the warranty then unfortunately, it sounds as if it's a H/W fault.

    H/W means hardware.

    It sounds as if the phone itself is physically broken and will need to have internal components replaced or repaired.

    Nope, but from my experience of phones and electronic devices in general, I think that's the probable cause.

    Do you have a screen protector installed? Have you spilled anything on it? Do the four hardware buttons seem to work?

    get a piece of copier paper. fold it nicely, and use the folded edge, run it in the perimeter of the screen and dig out all the dust, dried sweat out of there. don't dig too deep or use compressed air. just dig it out with the piece of paper. you will see there is a lot of debris lodged in there. once its out, try your phone again and it will work. worked for me. hope it helps

    You might want to try the following:
    1) Pull the battery from the phone.
    2) Plug the phone into power. You should see just the physical buttons light up most likely. If you see the message to insert the battery already, proceed to step 4.
    3) If you just have the lit buttons (but no screen message), keep unplugging and plugging the phone back in until the message to insert the battery comes up on the screen. Some people have said it takes a dozen attempts or more, but it's always done it for me after about 6 tries.
    4) Once that message is on screen, insert the battery again. Your phone should show the LG Logo briefly, and then eventually go into the battery charging animation. If it doesn't get to that animation, then this isn't likely to work sadly.
    5) With the animation onscreen, hold down the power button until the phone starts to boot again. Let it go once the LG Logo appears.

    Also, there's the extreme step of resetting your phone that will wipe all the data on the internal memory of your phone (best to remove your SD card first).

    Then you'll need to Google Play all your installed apps back, reconfigure things like your mail and whatever, and restore your files and data. Might be better to try contacting wherever you bought your phone first to see if they can help.
