Solution: Since this issue occurred right after a software update then this is most likely caused by a software glitch. Follow the troubleshooting steps listed below to fix the problem.

Perform a soft reset

This step is usually performed when a phone is unresponsive. To do this just press and hold the Power button and Volume Down until the device powers off, approximately 8 seconds, then release.

Try to check if the issue still occurs.

Check if the problem is network related

The next step you need to do is to verify if the problem is caused by  network issue. Go to an area that is known to have a very good signal and check if the issue still occurs. It’s best to check if other devices under the same network are getting a signal in this particular area. You should also check if the SIM card you are using is causing the problem by replacing it.

Check if the issue occurs in Safe Mode

There are instances when an app you downloaded can cause this problem. To verify if this is the case you will need to start the phone in Safe Mode as only the pre-installed apps are allowed to run in this mode.

  • From the home screen, press and hold the Power key.
  • Release the Power key, then tap and hold Power off.
  • Read the Reboot to safe mode message and tap OK.
  • The device will power off and restart in safe mode.

If the problem does not occur in this mode then it could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

Wipe the cache partition of the phone

Sometimes the phone’s cached data can get corrupted and when this happens certain issues can occur on the device. To eliminate this possibility you will have to wipe the cache partition of the phone.

  • From the Home screen, tap Settings.
  • Tap the ‘General’ tab.
  • Tap Storage > Internal storage.
  • Wait for menu options to finish calculating.
  • Tap Free up space.
  • Tap Temporary files & raw files.
  • Select the following options: Cached data, Clip tray temporary files, Raw files from camera
  • Tap Delete > DELETE.

Perform a factory reset

One last troubleshooting step to consider is a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before performing this step as it will be deleted in the process.

Factory reset from the settings menu

  • From the Home screen go to Settings.
  • Tap the ‘General’ tab.
  • Tap Restart & reset.
  • Tap Factory data reset.
  • If desired, tap the Erase SD card checkbox.
  • Tap RESET PHONE > Delete all > RESET

Factory reset using the hardware keys

  • Turn off the device.
  • Press and hold the Power and Volume down buttons.
  • When the LG logo appears, quickly release and then re-hold the Power button while continuing to hold the Volume down button.
  • When the ‘Delete all user data (including LG and carrier apps) and reset all settings’ message appears, use the Volume down button to highlight Yes.
  • Press the Power button to reset the device.

In case the above steps fails to fix the problem then this could already be caused by a faulty hardware component. I recommend that you bring this to a service center and have it checked.
