1* Take the battary out.

2*Unscrew the whole back.

3*You will se a connector down at the charger port take them off and you can blow some air to take the dirt off.

4* Take some paper and fold it 4 to 6 times(small one)

5* After folding it make sure it is the size of the connector that is next to the Camera.

6*Place the folden paper on top of the connector.

7*Slowly get back all the plastic covers.

8*Screw in all the screws.

9*Place the battary,SD Card and the Sim back

10*Power on the Phone.

99.9% It will work.


If you want to take it a step further ,

get some thermal paste

and remove the whole circuit board and but some on the spot (as shown on the picture) do NOT put too much a dot will be enough...

after that you can go ahead an place the circuit board back in place, then place the paper on the connector(follow the steps 6-10)

*Even thermal pad might do the job.


I hope this will fix the problem !

Place The Paper Here On this Connector!

Unfortunately this didn't work for me. I did find another fix though...

1. Remove battery cover and Unscrew The back plastic from the base of the phone to get to the motherboard.

2. Disconnect all the connectors from the motherboard.

3. Scan the motherboard for anything unusual. (My motherboard had corrosion on several different places).

5. Clean any dirt or corrosion with lint-free cloth. (I didn't have one so I had to use a Q-tip).

*if needed, Dip the cloth in rubbing alcohol to assist in cleaning. make sure that the cloth is JUST BARELY Damp and not dripping, otherwise you will risk water-damaging the phone. If you use rubbing alcohol, make sure that you dry the spot right after you wipe it.

6. Once you have cleaned the motherboard, check the base of the phone and clean any dirt from here also.

7. Replace the motherboard, re-connect the connections, screw on the back, and put the battery cover back on.

Viola! Mine has been working like new for 4 days so far with no issues... :)

It worked the first time for about two months so I just tried it again with a thicker fold. Hopefully this will do it because I like my phone.

How is adding a piece of paper on the front camera connector going to solve an issue with the LCD connector? I thought the main issue is that the CPU packaging is overheating and causing solders above to come loose…

the paper thing worked for me for over a year and now it doesn’t anymore. the thicker paper doesn’t help either. i don’t know what to do :/

THANK YOU! I'm not mechanical at all but had nothing to lose since my phone rapidly became unusable once the flickering/blackouts started. Followed the instructions, used a couple of tiny rectangles cut off a silicone oven mitt instead of paper, and all went smoothly (except needing help getting the casing loose after screw removal; my advice is leave the bottom plate alone and work off the top plate by loosening bottom left and right sides of top plate first). Delighted to report my screen hasn't flickered even once since turning phone on and writing this long comment! Yea! Thank you!

Solche Anleitungen sind das beste was es gibt. Kurz und bündig ohne dicker Werbung. Vielen Dank! Obwohl ich hervorragende Wärmeleitpaste auf Lager habe war der Schritt gar nicht Notwendig. Stück Papier hat schon gereicht.

Kleine Erläuterung warum das Problem besteht und warum die Wärmeleitpaste zur allgemeinem Bildung wäre noch toll gewesen. Aber Ergebniss ist top

It is not to Hard to perform this Fix.

Just don't touch anything else and be careful while taking the plastic cover off....

Everything is going to be fine.

I am not sure who this is going to but I wanted to know about the repair of the flickering and fading screen of the LG G3. Is that procedure a long term fix and what causes the symptoms. Also is the little piece of paper any type of fire hazard. The repair worked and it blows my mind. Thank you so much. I brought my phone to a repair shop and they were unable to fix it, Thank you again. If you wish to respond to me. My name is rich and my E-MAIL address is

Absolutely worked. Thanks for this. The flex cable just need to be push hard to the socket.

It will work for some time as the issue is software one. It only works because you leave your phone for some time off and without battery. Try returning to stock kitkat and you won't have that problem....

Muhammad Anas - Reply

Worked for about 2 months but started doing it again two days ago. I may redo the procedure with paper proportionate to the connector. Any validity to reverting to kit Kat fixing this long term?

Joe Clark - Reply

You need not remove all the screws nor do you need to completely remove the cover. Remove only the top half of screws, pry off the top of the cover, slip the pad over the cable with tweezers and re-attach the cover with screws. I used a silicone rubber pad instead of paper. Don't know yet if it works (prevents fade to black) long term but so far ok.

!&&* yea......its working...i think it was the mother board again that i have changed one time...but this time the connector was out,so i put it in and placed a paper above...

!&&* yeaaaaaaa......

This is a hardware issue : some component has random contact (screen connector ? )

This fix has worked for me about 2 monthes, and then it has done it again, getting worse and worse, even if I repeat the procedure, with bigger or smaller papers... Now the phone is definitively HS. But many thanks anyway

When I first tried it, it didn't work, I loosened the screws slightly so when they started to give a bit of tension I stopped. and it is working great again.

It is actually in eMMC chip and RAM problem. Pressing on location stated in above fortunately pressure eMMC and RAM as well. That is why, some seems ok, but some are not. For those ppl, it needs to reballing on eMMC and RAM. LG had that issue till LG G5. In LG G6, they upgrade design and no more that issue.


I’m not brave enough to try this method but it seems as if it only works for 2 months?

Totally worked and thanks, but wifi and even bluetooth connection has become too weak. any solution for that?

Ali Mansoori - Reply

Maybe cus you put a big piece of paper on the connector, try a smaller one and it should work.

Also make sure that the cover is screwed properly and there are no gaps (which the big paper might be making)

Tried adding paper and sponge padding. With the right thickness, it seemed fixed for one or two weeks. Fading reoccur after that, but less frequent. Then tried applying thermal paste without any help.

I got 2 G3 having this issue and neither padding nor thermal paste were not long lasting fix.

Genious! I was skeptical at first but tried it anyway. Voila! it worked. Thank you so much.

I tried the paper and it didn’t work. Then I thought, what connections are there between the board and the plastic back? Light sensors, and the on off volume button. Wifi Bluetooth connection problem tipped me off. I knew that was caused by the connection to the outermost plastic back (housing the antenna) getting fouled. It’s fixed by lifting up the connector from the board gently and cleaning off the connector on the plastic back. If you take off the inner plastic back you can do the same thing. Lift up the connectors to the sensors and the on/off button gently, clean the connectors on the plastic inner back piece with a cotton ball, and put it back together. Perhaps the phone screen fading is because it believes it’s in your pocket with the connections fouled.

Did the paper pad and it works. I was on my first day of my holiday and stuck without a phone so this really helped me out, many thanks!

chezbug - Reply

If you make the paper too thick, the cover on the back of the phone will not function properly as a WIFI aerial…there are 4 gold coloured connections in a row on the back of phone itself and on the inside of the back cover which all need to make good contact. Putting too thick a piece of paper will lift the black plastic too high away from the phone and interfere with the gold contacts. Try to make the paper a bit thinner and the WIFI reception should come back to normal strength.

Tom Johnson - Reply

Thanks, I watched your video and then took back off and forgot which bit to cover with the folded paper..could not find your video again so just tried the paper in numerous positions!!! Phone started to get more life each time I took it apart, eventually placed it on a gold small thing next to the USB port and used double fingered swipes ( phone screen was blank and voice was telling me it was “ 3 of five” etc “emergency calls only” in a semi hysterical female AI accent!!!) then I got settings and reset etc…now phone is working ‘perfectly'..thanks again for giving me the courage to do this, yours Ray.
