Default [Q] I think my LG Thrill doesn't boot

My LG Thrill is not booting. The battery is fully charged. I even replaced the battery and nothing. I am past my warranty and I was wondering if there is a way to fix it?

How can you already be past the one year warranty?

I'm not past the year warranty but if I returned it to At&t they would charge to get a new one (So I was told by customer service). So I'm just seeing if there is a way to fix it before I pay.

I swapped 4 captivates between me and my wife in the last year, I have never heard of being charged for warranty replacements. I could understand a restocking fee if you want to return, but not for a warranty replacement. But, I have always handled it over the phone, never in store. I have always been able to get a replacement overnighted to me without issue or charge.

Did you do anything to it, CWM, ROM etc? When I soft bricked my captivate that's all it would do. I had to get a jig to fix it.

I don't know how to unbrick a Thrill, but I think the O3D forum has an unbrick method that should work, if its a soft brick vs hardware failure.

If the computer "see" the phone it means that at least is not totally dead.. probably it is just bricked follow the unbricking phone guide in the Optimus 3d forum
