    Hello,

    my phone (LG G4 H818P) also had the Wifi flashing issue and I returned it today (eBay trader from Hong Kong, I am from Germany. I will get a replacement or money back as soon as the phone arrives).

    I did the mistake to not write the serial number down, could you guys do that if your phone has the issue? Maybe it is from a certain batch or something

    Hello Guys today I faced this issue while connecting to my wifi, I restarted the device it didn't worked then I opened the back and pulled the battery out for 5 minutes when I turned my device on the WIFI was off and when I tried to turn it on again it started blinking again, after calling the LG Customer Support they said me to do little things and it's working again!
    SO heres what to do
    goto Settings-General Tab-Apps then clear the data of these selected items mentioned below.
    1) Config Updater
    2) Download Manager
    3) Google Account
    4) Play Service
    5) Play Store
    6) Framework (Well I couldn't find it on my Phone)
    7) Home
    8) Setup Wizard
    9) Web Services
    10)Settings

    Clear all the data of these selected settings and I hope it will work. God Bless All of you And may God bless our Phones.
    Peace.
    This seemed to have done it for me - for about 10 seconds. I need to investigate further ...

    I am on 3 in Denmark

    Thanks OzzyPT - will try that next time.
    Did a factory reset. Problem persisted. OzzyPT - would a factory reset blank out the file you indicate?

    After the factory reset, I fixed it by pulling the microSD card and wiggling around the SIM card. Specifically I pushed it towards the center of the phone. The SIM on this model does not have an obvious way to remove it so I went with re-positioning it.. Booted it up. It worked. Put the memory card back in. Booted up. Still working. I wanted to remove and re-seat the sim because of something someone said above about lacking hardware ID's...

    My phone was a T-Mobile Alcotel One Touch (3 months old)
    this worked like a charm, thank you for your advice!! so simple.. i never would have thought to try that in a billion yrs!

    Hi, after using my phone perfectly without problems for about 3 months I now have the same problem and it's driving me nuts. I want to try your way of fixing the problem, but don't want to root my phone because then I'll probably lose my warranty.
    What do you mean by 'you can remove it via adb'? I don't see any folder named adb in my internal storage... Can you please elaborate? (Sorry, I'm not very familiar with all this)
    Thanks

    Hey I been having this prob too and after a year or so of looking I might have your answer but it does take a bit of work on your part. It seems that the wifi card located within the logic board is not connecting properly so you have to open it up and adjust it. Check out this video;
    hope it helps.

    That's the first I've heard of that problem; I'd take it into your carrier and get them to look at it. From some googling about a month ago (to help someone else out with an odd WIFI issue... http://androidforums.com/threads/sim...oblems.738513/ ), I think the SIM card may be at fault.
    i have the same kind of problem. I can definitely on the wifi icon but it just keep on showing that it is" turning wifi on" and 3 hrs had passes away but still it keeps doing like thaT. I tried to restart it but nothing good happens. I already put it off for how many hours but it doesn't help.. Please help me with my LG magna,

    Hi guys, I also had the flashing wifi problem and solved it. I tried a SW factory reset before, but it didn't help (made the phone much less laggy though, can recommend doing that from time to time).

    On a similar thread i read that a guy recommended lowering the distance between the wifi chip and the chassis (It is the yellow thing at step 8 LINK)

    So I opened the phone and but 3 stripes of thesa on the chip. To be honest i didnt have much expectations, but it actually worked!

    Really try it out if you are out of warranty like i am. WIFI works perfectly again, took me perhaps 15 minutes to open the phone, apply thesa, and put it back together. I dont know if i fixed it because of the thesa or because i had to open 3 connectors and closed thema again, but it works

    Best,
    Simon

    This seems to be a sprint thing. I'm on Verizon and don't have this issue.
    Nope. I have Verizon and it's happening to me.
