    Sometimes, when i turn on my phone, it says "car kit" and when i try and make calls, i cant hear or talk, because it is in car kit mode. Ive never used or even owned a car kit, and its doing this randomly. Does anyone know how to turn it off? I have an LG vx7000

    By any chance did you get your phone wet or was it exposed to moisture?

    See strangely what sets off "car-kit mode" is when your get your phone wet, do me a favor there should be a sticker either on the battery or the back of the phone that looks either solid red or pink, tell what color it is.

    Try air duster.

    My phone has the same issues. LG 3200, suffered minor water damage (had it in a grocery bag with a mug which I *thought* was empty and *thought* was screwed shut, but nooo....), dried it out for six or eight hours, now it seems to have this inordinate fascination with "Car Kit" mode.

    Any ideas?

    >>EDIT: Took the phone apart... Inside the back of the phone, there's a small round sticker at the bottom with pinkish-red dots.

    That's to bad. That sticker indicates the phone has at one time or another been wet. That will be the first thing the service rep or tech will look at. I hate to say this, but in your case you may have to get a new phone.

    Because if you've done as you say and let the phone dry out for a period of time, and it still won't function, it probably won't....ever.

    What's strange is that when I leave it out to dry, assemble it, and power it up, it works normally for a certain amount of time before going into "Car Kit" mode.

    I take it from what you're saying that there's no way to get it *out* of "Car Kit" mode?

    another case of the "getting your cell phone wet makes your LG go into car kit mode"

    I think that pretty much confirms what i've always said about that issue.

    That still baffles me. I've personally never seen this car kit mode. I may have to dig one of my old 3200's out just to try it and see.

    You know it makes me wonder if LG is even aware of this problem...

    what are you going to do to check your 3200?

    Throw it in the sink and turn on the water (which I have done). Now I have it apart, letting it dry out. Lets see what happens in a few.
