Customer Question
lg sunset won't turn on...
lg sunset won't turn on. I took the battery out, held the volume up button and power and kept holding for 6 seconds. The phone vibrated, but the screen remains black.
JA: What's the make and model of your tv, and has turning it on been a problem in the past?
Customer: Why do you need the make and model of my TV? It has not had any problems in the past.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: The phone wasn't receiving texts the past couple of days, so this morning I turned it off with the intent of restarting it, but it never turned back on. The only thing I have done so far is what I explained above.
JA: Anything else you want the phone expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I don't think so.

Is that not the same thing you just suggested?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Ok, I just pushed them alternately and then held them both at the same time and the phone came on. It has a picture of a battery charging, it is flashing and says 81% and the number increases.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I can't get the phone to do anything after that.
Cell Phone Technician: Josh, Technician replied 3 months ago

Okay, so it shows the battery is charging but it will not power on. Is that correct?

How old is the phone?

Ask Your Own Cell Phones Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
between 1 to 2 years old. I have one just like it, it is at least a year older, and it works fine.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
this is my son's phone that doesn't work
Cell Phone Technician: Josh, Technician replied 3 months ago

I understand -- Unfortunately, the phone will need to be repaired and it is outside of the warranty so the cost will be yours.

What kind of repairs does it need? Who repairs android phones?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
What do you think is wrong with it?
Cell Phone Technician: Josh, Technician replied 3 months ago

You will need to find a local repair shop who deals with Android phones -- I am not sure of the exact issue with it; it will require a hands-on approach to find the issue.

I just went onto a few other websites and found out which buttons turn the phone off, on, and how to factory reset the phone. I found that in 20 minutes, but was on justanswer for over a day and didn't get much.
Cell Phone Technician: Josh, Technician replied 3 months ago

We have provided to you the steps to perform a factory reset -- Were you pressing the wrong buttons?
