In the theme of cell phones here these past few days, I figured it’d be cool to post another tip for LG VX8100 users: Keep the outside LCD on!
If you’re one of many that have an LG VX8100, the outside LCD screen dims after a few seconds then turns completely black after a few more. The only way to see the time is to press one of the buttons. Grab that phone, this’ll take less than 30 seconds:
- Open the phone
- Press the Menu button
- Press “0“
- The service code is 000000 (there’s six zeroes)
- Navigate to 10. “Battery Test“
- The screen will prompt, “LCD Backlight ON, Key Light ON, Power Save OFF”. Select YES.
Sure this setting is there to save battery life. The screen doesn’t need to stay lit when it’s in your pocket or purse. But yeah, I get lazy sometimes. 🙂
