Won't hold a charge ¶

Network Down ¶
If the network in your area is weak, your phone will lose battery charge very quickly while searching for a stronger signal. The easiest way to solve this problem is by turning your phone off in areas with bad coverage.
"CAR KIT" message pop up randomly and phone can't be accessed ¶
The phone freezes and shows a "CAR KIT" message.
Water Damage ¶
The LG VX6000 is very susceptible to water damage. One of the reasons this screen pops up is so Verizon can tell the customer that the phone has taken in too much water and therefore is malfunctioning.To verify if there has been water damage to the phone, use this link: ++LG VX6000 Body Replacement
Another reason this message might pop up is if you have dropped your phone repeatedly and frequently. The phone can only take 3-10 impacts from significant heights (3 ft or more). When it has taken too much damage, it malfunctions. If the phone is malfunctioning because it has been dropped too many times, the only way to fix it is to replace the logic board.

Charger Blinks Rapidly When Connected ¶
When connecting the phone to the charger, the charger blinks rapidly showing there is an error.
Contaminated Power Jack or Charger ¶
Dust, dirt, or any foreign substance in the power jack or the charger can cause the phone to malfunction when being connected.
Damaged Power Jack or Charger ¶
If the power jack or charger is damaged, the phone will not charge and will instead blink "Error." When the power jack is even slightly damaged, bent, or rusted, it malfunctions completely.
Shuts Off Randomly ¶
Sometimes the phone will turn off and not restart unless the the battery is removed.
Too Much Data Saved on Phone ¶
The phone may be overloaded because there is too much information, such as ringtones, pictures, and text messages stored on it. To avoid this problem, put the information on a memory card instead of your phone. If you still have too much data on your phone, get a bigger memory card to store more data.
Poor Quality ¶
Sometimes phones will malfunction due to problems with the manufacturing. If this is the case, the only way to stop it from turning off is to trade it in at the location it was purchased. For the nearest Verizon location, click here ++http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/store...
