How to fix the LG Classic Flip that won’t turn on
Here are several solutions you can try dealing with an LG Classic Flip that won’t turn on:
1. Press and hold the PWR/END key long enough
Learn the correct way of turning on your phone. You need to press the PWR/END key for at least five seconds. When it’s not long enough, your phone will fail to boot up. Often this simple mistake is what caused the boot-up failure.
2. Charge the battery
If your phone doesn’t come to life even when you boot it up the right way, check its battery level. There’s a good chance the battery is dead. Plug your phone and charge the battery and wait for around 15 minutes. Afterward, try turning it on again.
3. Check your power outlet
It’s also worth checking that your power outlet is working properly. Use other electronic devices, like a lamp or a radio, to see if the outlet does channel electricity.
4. Perform force restart
If the usual way of restarting (by holding the PWR/END key) doesn’t work, do a force restart. Take off the battery and reattach it again. Then turn on the phone once again by pressing the PWR/END key for 5 seconds.

How to fix the LG Classic Flip that won’t charge
When you can’t charge your LG Classic Flip, there are several things you can do as a solution. Here’s the checklist:
1. Check if it’s plugged in properly
Make sure the USB cable is not shifted on both its end, whether it’s the one connected to the phone or the one attached to the charger head. Then make sure the charger head is securely attached to the power outlet.
On your phone, check if the battery icon indicates that it’s filling up. You can see the animation on it.
2. Use the original charger
Sometimes the phone refuses to charge because the charger is unsuitable. It’s recommended to use the original one. It can be the one that came in the box, or a charger you bought at an LG official store.
Unofficial chargers won’t only create battery charging problems, sometimes it can be damaging too to your phone.
3. Check the cable for any damage
Especially if your charger is old, it’s possible the cable is broken due to daily wear and tear. Try to look for any physical damage. You can also check it by charging other devices.
If you can’t do any charging even with other devices, it’s safe to say that the cable here is the problem. You can replace it and remember to only buy from official stores.
4. Check if the power outlet is working
You can use another electronic device to test whether there’s nothing wrong with the power outlet. If you’re traveling, check the local voltage requirement too. Some countries have it differently. It’s possible that the power outlet is simply not compatible with your LG Classic Flip.
5. Do force restart
Sometimes there has been a glitch in the software that prevents the battery from charging. And that glitch can easily go away over a restart.
So, press and hold the PWR/END key for 5 seconds until the screen dims out. Then go press the key again to restart the phone.
A phone that won’t charge or won’t turn on is quite a classic problem. But as shown in the guide above, easy and actionable steps are available to quickly solve it. Simply perform the fixes we suggested and enjoy a problem-free LG Classic Flip.
