    So my Phoenix died earlier today, and when I plugged it into a charger, it keeps flashing the LG logo and then repeating that, until I unplug it. I let it do that for a while just to charge, but the phone won't turn on at all now. Holding down the power button won't do anything. Taking the battery out and plugging the charger in causes the same thing to happen.

    I'm running Jobans kernel 2.08, and CyanogenMmatt

    EDIT: Its fixed now. Does anyone know if a different charger can cause something like that? Cause I was using a different one, but when I plugged in the original LG charger, it worked

    Yea i had this happen! Its because the voltage differnce and when your phone goes completly dead you need a powerful boost to bring it back!

    yeah it can happen on any phone. You can use a lower amperage charger it just takes longer to charge. It wont hurt the battery or the phone but it might make you insane waiting.

    Well I've generally charged any device (android or not) I have mostly through my USB on my laptop. I'd assume the voltage is lower there since I've never really had any issues with screen flipouts.

    Then give it TIME to charge before you start panicking.....

    If you let the battery completely drain out then of course it's more than likely not gonna cut on until it has enough "juice" to do so.

    How long did you let the battery charge for? If its any less than 3 hrs you don't have a full charge no matter what charger you are using. IF its charged try the following. Take the battery out (not plugged in) and then press and hold the power button (this will discharge any static charge). Put the battery back in give it another trying. Also try booting the phone with just the power connected.

    I'm trying to flash stock 2.3.4 kdz file, following the tutorial. I installed usb drivers, but when i atempt to start flashing kdz file i get an error message saying it didnt recognize the phone! in device manager i can see "lg usb modem" but it has an exclamation sign next to it, so i assume there is some conflict with usb drivers... i'm on windows 7! thanks

    I have a metro pcs phone, the admire or something, and it was working just fine yesterday but this morning (mind you the phone was fully charged) it shut off and when I tried to turn it back on, the Samsung logo kept flashing. It would look like it was turning on, then shut off, and repeat. I tried charging it but that's not working. It does the same thing with the battery picture. It shows up, then disappears. Help? :c
