Tips: How to Hard Reset LG KS-20

March 25, 2008

1. Turn off the LG KS-20 completely (do this by pressing and holding the power button and wait for the prompt).
2. Press and hold these three buttons–volume down, Call and power–till the LED (this is beside the front camera) flashes.
3. Release the buttons. That same LED should flash blue/red/green and power up.
4. The KS20 should be in a clean state.

  4. Mukundan,

    It could be your battery is already faulty. Have to send back for warranty.

  5. i have the same problem with mukundan only my phone is showing 100 % battery full all the time

    is there any way to reset the battery ?
    i know that these batteries have memory for how many times you recharge it
    i have been very careful with that so i charged it every time it was empty and charged it all night long with the phone shut off

    any ideas ?

  6. I had same problem before. The problem is the battery. I bought a battery on eBay and that battery has this problem. I switched back to the original battery and problem is fixed.

  7. if hard reset, will the OS still remain?

  8. Dan,

    The OS will still remain. But all your data will be lost and reset to factory default.

  9. sad…
    This poor LG KS 20 …my battery keep on at 98% and the warranty jus passed…that poor LG policy never protect user’s right and this battery problem is so unique to this product….company should have change it for everyone..
