    I've tried the paper trick in there near the camera area.
    @jarodsfisher: did you try it right? For me it's working perfectly and as soon as I remove the "paper", the issue returns. Let see, it needs to be about 2 by 1 cm (0.8 by 0.4 inch) and between 0.1 and 0.2 cm thick (0.04-0.08 inch). you'll need to place it below the black infrared sensor and next to the camera and 4 shiney wireless charging connectors. Then put some case of back cover on the phone.

    I wonder if this issue is related to the battery. I have another known issue, that is, my LG G3 keeps rebooting. It reboots when using power consuming apps like the camera, Google Chrome or a game. A battery replace worked for only a day. When replacing the battery I noticed the old one has curved a little and has become shorter. That's why the newer batter fits better and the old one is thicker in the middle. That extra thickness might add pressure to the screen and motherbord. The first place where that's going to cause loose connectors is near the cam (and CPU), because that's closest to the battery. I'm just guessing but this could mean that it's not the motherboard that's malfunctioning, but it's the frame (chasis) of the LG G3. Does anyone have ideas on this?

    Hi mondymondelo,

    Did you try the trick yet and did it work? I think it's safe to do it. There is no info in this thread or anywhere else on the internet about the real problem. What's going wrong and why does it help to add some pressure to some transistors next to the CPU (Snapdragon 805)?

    My best guess is that the battery warps over time (1 to 1.5 year) and gets bold in the the middle. For me this might be the cause for some battery issues and bootloop too. Because of the deformation, the LG frame itself deforms too and things don't make contact anymore. That's what the pressure is for.

    An extra warranty is applied to this kind of factory failures. However, I dropped my phone and replaced the screen myself. I don't think LG is going to fix my phone for free now.

    You know what, I backed it two weeks ago.
    It's a damne thing but it's now working like day 1.
    I even droped the paper

    however I start having the fading issue again, but least that once a day so for now it's still good to me.

    My phone has just started exhibiting the same symptoms as those mentioned elsewhere in this thread. It refuses to turn on, but when it does, the screen flickers blue during the LG bootup and it will either manage to boot into android (or not) before it starts the reboot-loop before it finally gives up and turns off and stops attempting to boot again. This is a completely stock phone, not tampered with in anyway. Immaculately cared for, never dropped onto the ground. Now just fractionally outside the 1 year manufacturer's warranty. Very annoying. I'll not buy LG again.

    Hi chaicoughski,

    As I said above, there should be an extra warranty for it's a factory defect. If you are going to solve this issue yourself: above, you'll find solutions for the bootloop and flickering. There's another forum about the blue screen during boot: http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...ue-screen.html

    I had this problem with my G3 yesterday that has been used since 2014. Today I brought the phone to the LG Service Center. The technician told me that the problem was with the power management chip and unfortunately for this kind of problem, requires mainboard replacement. And unfortunately again for me, the phone is out of warranty. The replacement board costs around USD160 but he said that there is also alternative board that is produced in Thailand that costs around USD110. I took the offer and now the phone seems to be without problem. Fingers crossed.

    I just started having this issue this morning. I was going to try the trick with the paper but as I started taking the cover off I noticed the screen start flickering. At this point I started thinking this is definitely a hardware issue. I started flexing the phone some back and forth and sure enough the screen started flickering and flashing as I was twisting. I'm assuming this is being caused by the same components on everyone's phone and is most certainly a hardware issue and NOT software. My phone has been flashed with the same ROM for a while now and the flickering literally happened out of the blue so it's safe to say it is completely unrelated to software changes. The amount of people that are having this problem is pretty astounding and it's clear this is no isolated defect. I'm yet another G3 owner with this problem.

    I agree. It's a hardware issue. The flickering can be stopped by pushing with your finger against the spot below the black infrared sensor and left of the power button. If you would 'unpress' or lift this place of the phone's cover, the flickering starts. Another way to stop the flickering is to bend the phone right upper corner (when looking at the front) towards the front.
    Anyway, the paper trick is based on this and frees your fingers :P I'm glad you're able to describe the same symptons. The amount of people suffering from this is astounding indeed.

    it keeps restarting all the time
    Boot loop? Here's your solution: http://forums.androidcentral.com/lg-...ml#post5177159

    @aimulianto: a new mobo is probably the best solution, though it's still really expensive.

    Hi everybody,
    I have the same symptoms since about one month. I've tried the paper trick . It works for a time but the problems continue. I don't know what to do. I find that it's totally abnormal to have problem with a FlagShip afer one year and a half. I consider it's planned obsolescence.

    what are you thinking ?

    Exact same problem here.. it's almost unusable most of the time screen just blank or will flicker when its on and just fade out.. paper trick or finger trick don't work for me it just randomly decides when it wants to work. all of these going bad around the same time 1.5 years.. it can' t be coincidence. 100% manufacturing defect this should be a recall with this many users affected!

    I can confirm this works. I was using the paper method at first and then I changed the software to cloudy 2.5 and removed the paper and it works. I definitely believe its a software issue.

    I don't think it's a software issue. I have android Marshmallow and many other people have Lolipop. However, everybody have the same problems.

    I'm from Brazil and I am following the forum to find a solution to the problem with my LG G3.

    I do not believe the problem is the software because my phone sometimes works perfectly, but when I hold the extremities of my cell and twist slightly, the mobile screen fades instantly.

    I'm sure it's a component of bad plate attached.

    Excuse me for my bad English.

    I am now using the paper method with two layers of carton, so far so good.
    Only problem I'm having is that the phone starts overheating around the camera and the buttons, will this damage the phone?
    I don't know why I'm having so many issues with this phone, other problems I've had are the LED notification light blinking with no notifications and the gallery not showing my internal memory pictures.
