          ■ When power turns on and off frequently, it can be due to software and hardware errors.

          ■ Software
            - Most of the power off errors can be due to software. Android devices are designed to reset

              power automatically when processors do not respond for a certain period of time to protect

              the system.

            - Widget
errors during use or installation of too many apps (more than 20) can cause freezing

              or power off.

            - If the
error occurs after running an application, delete the app.

              * How to delete

                 [Menu] → [Settings] → [Application] → [Downloads] → Delete installed application.

            -  Check if the
software is the latest version. If not, upgrade on LG Mobile website.

            -  When
battery gets hot (higher than 60℃), smart phones may turn off.
            Close all running programs and others in background (auto sync) and try again after cooling

               the smart phone.



          ■ Hardware 

            - Power may turn off due to disconnection between battery and cell phone.
Stains or loose smart phone ports can be the cause.

              Clean ports with a dry cloth or remove battery and put it back in. Turn on power and check.


              Impact or water can also cause power error. Contact LG Customer Service center to request


            ※ If the symptoms persist or cause difficulties while using the phone, call our Customer

                 service and request assistance.
