So I'm gutted as I've just returned from 2 weeks holiday and all my photos are on it. I tried plugging it in to a USB port on my PC but no joy.

Any ideas?

I wouldnt think very high but all devices are mass produced so it does happen as seen here.

Hi guys,

Today my phone died too, it froze on snapchat then i exited the app, and the phone became unresponsive and the screen dimmed. I then pulled the battery out, and put it back in, but since then it hasnt turned back on. Ive tried charging it for a few hours and doing battery resets etc, it also doesnt connect to my PC. I think its dead.

Also its rooted, but as its completely dead will they know?

Worst thing is i bought it from Amazon.de and im in the UK so i have to ship it back there, unless anyone knows if LG will be able to repair it here in the UK?

Sounds like a dud battery or connector, take it apart and check the connection between the battery and board.
