Has anyone experienced the LG 6190 randomly shutting off?

I recently got an LG6190 fasttap phone and really like the features. The only problem that I have noticed is that the phone will sometimes turn off. Has anyone experienced the phone randomly shutting off on them? It hasn't happened while talking but has happened a few times when the phone is not in use.

Thanks, newcell :?




There has been reports of processor glitches in the first generation LG. This happens when there are to many programs running in the background when a call is place or a text is sent or recieved. The data is not stored do to the glitch which causes the phone not to recieve or send data.

This problem is a programmers error, which can be fixed by getting a larger processor which can be hard as well as expensive to replace. A much simpler and Less expensive solution to the problem is to end tasks manually by killing all running programs. This can be done by holding down the home button for3 second then pressing end all tasks and running apps.


Has anyone had problems with placing a call and the call not being displayed in call history or send a message and it not appear in messages


I am using LG KP199 last for 3 years.... even i have faced same switch off problem some time but what so good about my phone is it repairs itself....last it been switch off but when i plug it to battery switch it show full battery....when i removed it for switch board then it was keep on automatically switch off....then finally i switch on my phone during charging, when it opens i have switch off it my self then after removing it from switch board i have tried to switch on...now it is working well....


Yes, my phone does that at least 3 times every day and i have the lg neon. It will also sometimes say service detached and than ill have service or sometimes no sim card entered when it shuts off and than comes back on but my sim card is inserted!


My cell phone (LG 290C) is having a party since I got home from class. In the thirty minutes I have been browsing for an answer, the phone has shut off and restarted all by itself at least 15 times. It won't stay on long enough to do anything. It does not make a difference whether I let the phone sit, or if I try to send a text, open the web browser, make a call, it will just randomly shut off. Up until a week ago (I have owned this phone for five months) it worked perfectly. In the last week it randomly shut off twice, but that's all until today, when it had this major problem. I wish I had the answer. If anyone can tell me anything please do. On here, or email me at natalie_smarty_sweet@hotmail.com


I am having the same problem i cant tell if its battery connection,battery, dirty phone or what?
i also have an lg xenon its just pissing me off anybody know what to do ?


My LG UX5000 (with US Cellular) is doing the same thing; sometimes shuts off or reboots. Sitting on my desk it has restarted four times in the past hour. It is several years old now so I'll probably be told to get a new phone and they'll try and get me to sign for another two years.


my LG rumor just randomly shuts down- most often when it's just in my pocket- but sometimes when im trying to type a text


I am having this same problem but my phone is a Samsung sgh-a437. I took it to the ATT repair center today and they told me that because the little square above the battery was red that my phone had water damage. I know that there is no way that is does. I checked the other phones in our house -- 4 others all the same model -- and they *all* have red squares. Yet mine is the only one that isn't working. I think the squares are always red and they just use that as an excuse to not replace your phone.

Here's some info my husband found about the moisture stips in cell phones. http://clarkhoward.com/liveweb/shownotes/2007/07/24/12458/


I have the LG Envy and I am having the same problem. I think I just figured mine out. I think the battery is not clipped in tight enough and it is losing contact with whatever powers the phone. Just jiggle the area where the battery is. I always wondered why I didn't get the power down sound when it shut off like it does when the battery is low. I guess I will take to the shop eventually.
