Hi there. The battery is charging, but the phone will not turn on. Other buttons seem to be working, because the backlight turns on when I push them. But, the power button will not work. Pleas advise, an alternative method to powering up my phone.
I figured how to turn on the phone! If you take the battery out and plug it in with a power supply, the phone will eventually power on by itself. (It took about 5 minuted or so) and you will see your main screen! At least now, I can get my stuff off of it and buy a new phone. I hope that helps anyone.
Plug in your charger and when it is on the black and white LG screen, take the charger out. The phone will boot up.
This has worked for me consistently and it is counter-intuitive!
