How to Reboot LG Phones: A Step-by-Step Guide

Turn the phone off. Press and hold the following keys at the same time: Volume Down Key + Power/Lock Key on the back of the phone. Release the Power/Lock Key only when the LG logo is displayed, then immediately press and hold the Power/Lock Key again.

If you’re experiencing issues with your LG phone such as freezing or forgotten passwords, a hard reset might be just what you need to get it back to working condition. A hard reset will restore the phone to its original factory settings, just like it was when it was brand new. However, it’s important to note that this process will delete all user data, including pictures, videos, contacts, and phone numbers.

To perform a hard reset on an LG Fiesta, start by powering off the phone using the power button. If the phone is not already powered off, press “Power Off” on the screen and power off again. Once the phone is completely powered off, press the volume down button and the power button simultaneously and hold them down. Wait for the LG logo to appear, then release the power button and press it again.

You’ll then see the factory data reset screen. To move up and down the menu and select “Yes,” use the volume up and down buttons. After selecting “Yes,” you’ll see a screen confirming that all user data will be erased and the phone will be restored to default settings. Select “Yes” again using the power button to start the process.

Next, you’ll see a black screen with a white circle and the word “Erasing” below it. After a few seconds, the phone will begin erasing all personal data and apps. You’ll then see the LG logo followed by the Tracfone Wireless logo (if that’s your provider), with the Android logo below. This process may take a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on how much data needs to be erased.

Once the logo screen is gone, you’ll see “Android is Starting” and a percentage that shows how much is completed in setting up default settings. Do not turn off your phone during this stage. It’s recommended to ensure that your phone is fully charged to at least 80% before starting the hard reset process.

Once the process is complete, the screen will go black and you’ll see the welcome screen. You can then select your language and set up your phone just like it was brand new.

Performing a hard reset on an LG phone is a simple process, but always be sure to back up any important data before starting. With these steps, you’ll be able to reboot your phone and get it back to working condition in no time.


What does a soft reset do to LG phone?
A soft reset is also called a restart. It's a safer version of turning your device off, then turning it back on again. Using a soft reset closes any applications and clears out the RAM before restarting the device. A hard reset uses the phone's hardware to return it to factory settings.
