LG Electronics confirmed that the booting issue encountered by owners of some G4 handsets is caused by a loose contact between components, this problem usually being covered by the warranty.

A few months ago, some LG G4 owners began complaining of a bootloop issue. Unfortunately, they did not find any software workaround for this problem and Android Authority forwarded the story to LG. Fortunately, the company answered promptly and their reply brings good news to the owners of affected handsets.

According to LG Electronics' statement, the company has identified the cause of the booting issue, which is a loose contact between components. Those affected by this should contact the local carrier or a nearby LG Service Center to get their devices repaired, but only as long as they acquired their LG G4 from a carrier. On the other hand, "Customers who purchased their G4 devices from non-carrier retailers should contact an LG Service Center with the understanding that warranty conditions will differ."

The company also apologized for the inconvenience caused to some customers who received incorrect diagnoses so far. In the past, some attempts to fix the problem led to replacing the wrong parts, without solving it.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
