Mobile phone repair in Canberra – probably a software issue?

By anotherpublicserv 27 April 2011 21

My almost new phone, which I bought off ebay, has died. It’s an LG Optimus One. Only a few months old and Aussie stock, but because I don’t have the original purchase receipt, LG won’t help with a warranty (lesson learnt!).

The screen stays black and the menu button lights flash on and off constantly when I try to turn the unit on, or when I plus it in to the charger. I’ve tried following online instructions to do a factory reset via pressing buttons and via usb, but the computer won’t recognise the phone even with drivers etc installed.

It’s either a software (hopefully) or hardware issue… does anyone know of anywhere in Canberra that could help? Or am I stuck with posting it to Sydney?
