Purchased LG STYLO 2 from boost online store. 2 days after purchase the phone wouldn't turn on & had a flashing red light. Did standard troubleshooting, nothing worked. Went to local boost store, guy fixed it but didn't answer how or what the problem was. 2 weeks later..get up this morning same problem. Won't turn on, flashing red light. Help! What is the issue?
THis is from another Message Board. I am copying and pasting a solution someone else had. So hopefully this work.
Literally JUST fixed my problem.
Left it plugged in with the stock Cord/USB Charger for 4 hours, came home and it was 100% Charged screen.
But then, it wouldn't boot past the LG Screen.
I then reseated the battery, popped it back on the charger and now it's ON and working.
That resolved the problem for someone else. Let me know if it works for you!
I have contacted LG regarding all 3 of my children phone shutting down. We had to take the battery out to start it again. I have contacted Boodt regarding the situation which they did trouble shooting on all three. Problem continued and they eventually had to keepp removing the battery. Eventually one of my children's phone completly shut down and did the exact same thing your did, but only difference is, his battery was still in the phone and the phone started getting real hot. I contacted LG and eventually sent the phone in. They sent me a message stating they could not repair the phone because there was liquid damage to the phone. If that was the case, I would have done an insurance claim and not sent it to them because I know they would not have fixed a damage phone. These people are bogus and knows these phones had a defect in them and that is why they went on sale during black friday.
I bought my Stylo 2 direct from BestBuy when they had it on sale at 50% off back in December. NO issues at all, and love the phone.
Fromm all the research I have done online, seems to be narrowed down to 2 possibilities:
1. The battery is bad. It does happen sometimes.
2. The circuitry in the phone itself is defective, and again that too happens sometimes.
Fromm all my reading, I kept getting this sense that everyone seems to believe that manufacturing defects simply do not happen anymore or something. Contrary to that belief, take it from someone who use to do customer service and repairs, it does. Mass production will alwayts have those few gremlions where something goes bad. Or is not hooked up completely/correctly. You get the point. As an example, many years ago I was doing computer builds and repairs. We got 1 entire shipment of har drives in and of them defective. We initiated an investigation and found some dimwit at the airport where they came in at had "accidentall" sent them through a large X-ray machine. Geee, apparently could NOT read on crates where it said "DO NOT X-RAY"!:
