Customer Question
My LG just locked...

My LG just locked up and started blinking in a middle of a text, I thought it was because battery was low so I charged it for a while and that didn't work and then I took battery out for an hour and then put it back in and still the same issue, it has never happened before its not at the home screen but at a LG screen

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on?

Since 8pm

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

Pulled the battery other than that nothing it is just a black screen that has the LG sign on it, and that's it...it blinked for a while now its just solid on

Technician's Assistant: The phone expert can solve this for you. Anything else you want him to know before I connect you two?

I cant turn it off either, and cant tell if its charging

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Remove the battery again. Leave it out for overnight... I suspect that, unfortunately, your LG device is in a severe state of shock, at very least. Perhaps it may recover, but I suspect it won't. Still, this rest and reset must be tried.

The 'blinking LG screen' may have been, simply, the device going into a reboot loop.

Let me know next morning, how the LG device is now acting, please. Thanks.
