Hi, I am sorry to hear that, is it locked now, does it seem like it is trying when you swipe? Or does the screen do nothing at all when you swipe it?ThanksTech Michael

Click phone working. Swipe not working. Full battery. I was swipe screen but nothing all time. I did try battery out and put back. Still same
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Hi thanks, ***** ***** the exact same phone and it failed the same way, but I found what really happened to mine, somehow it went into knock code instead of swipe.

Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
But you can look up how to set a knock code online on yahoo etc
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
The problem is now that your phone wont accept the swipe, its likely in knock code mode. But you don't knwo the code.
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
On this phone, are you talking about trying to unlock to use it with regards ***** ***** or are you talking about a credit card reader?

Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Also please explain the problem clearly as I think you and I are missing something in the translation here. Please tell em if I am correct with this: you can see your display on the the screen icons etc, but you can open them by swiping, is that correct?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes that right swipe right it means open lots of app
now I cant open by swiping on my phone it wont let me open app
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Thanks, ***** ***** for one of two reasons, either the phones software is corrupt as does happen with his phone, I really hate LG's phone I have to tell ya lol.When it happened to me, i tried a knock code just to see if it somehow got into that mode.A knock code can be set and to see if you have enabled that function, you need to tap a 4 digit code in different paces on the scree in th elower halof of the screen, like example, * * * * and see if it says on screen WRONG CODE?Let me know?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
I sent you an offer so I can call you, if you accept that I will call you and explain, its hard to explain here like this. I will also see if there is a link that explains that knock code to you.
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Please visit this link it explains it all.http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/knockcode Also please rate kindly so I can continue with you, no cost for that.Thank youTech Michael
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no don't work!!!!!!!!!
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
What didn't work?the knock code did the screen respond at all to that?If not, you have bad screen and the phone needs to be sent in for this repair. The best thing to do is visit an LG store and they can fix this for you right there in most cases while you wait. Also, if your phone is less than 1 year old, they will do this for free;-)If tyou dont have a store local to you I can locate one for you that you can send this phone to for this repair. Please let me know, I am here to help. Tech Michael
