Lg g4 marshmallow issues

I'm having issues waking the screen (most of the time), neither tapping the screen or the back button work. Only solution is to plug in the charger or remove the battery. Also, the camera takes really grainy pictures now. Can this be fixed?

I am sorry to hear the phone is not waking up after the most recent update and camera issues, Skc78. Let’s bring your phone back to life again. How often would you say this happens in a day with the phone not waking up? Does this happen 100% of the time with the camera too? Please share details about both issues and any troubleshooting you have already taken so we can determine the best way to proceed with fixing it.

I'm also having the same issues with the screen not waking. My camera works fine, but I can't wake the screen without taking out the battery. It happens a few times a day since updating. Pretty frustrating. I'll knock, press the power, hold the power, and try to use the camera button but it doesn't work. Sometimes if I leave the phone alone for a bit it will allow me to access the phone.

I'm having the same issue! My screen won't turn on unless I plug it in or take battery out. Happens sporadically throughout the day..probably 40-50% of the time I try to turn the screen on.

Making sure you can wake you phone from a dormant state is important Speedy1gon. Lets figure out what is going on. Thank you for the steps you have already taken to resolve this issue. So I can better understand what is happening I have some questions. When speicifically did this start happening? Are all applications updated? Any accessories on the device?

Will there be some kind of fix with the Marshmallow update? I did the factory reset and my phone is still doing the same thing...with the screen not turning on.

Speedy1gon,


Updates are meant to enhance the functionality of your phone's features not cause them to stop working for you. To ensure that we're checking into everything, can you tell us if this happens even when the device is connected to a charging source? Also, does this happen with safe mode enabled http://vz.to/1Qrp2lw ?
