LG Access LTE (LGL31L)
« on: December 18, 2015, 07:47:25 pm »
My LG Ultimate 2 recently fell upon some hard times (A.K.A. I managed to drop it on a metal corner, on the screen, bam, dead). I purchased the LG Access LTE, thinking it was just the better version of the Ultimate 2, and while its a good phone, its missing some stuff... pretty important stuff. The home button notification light doesn't work (even though I can see its actually a LED, just like the Ultimate 2, hell, it doesn't even HAVE a notification light), and the IR blaster doesn't function. Is this stuff a custom ROM could fix, is the phone a dud (in which case I'll return it), or is there something I'm missing? I love the phone, other than the few things i mentioned previously.

I did the same thing it was just more extreme. I don't have a Access LTE so I can't test stuff. It should have a glowing LED home button, check the settings. It doesn't have a IR blaster, I checked. If its not in the hardware we cant enable it. For example we can't enable NFC on the Ultimate 2 if it doesn't have a NFC chip, but we can activate the HD recording because that's in the software. If it becomes a popular device I will buy one.

I rechecked the settings just a little bit ago, and where they were on the Ultimate (Settings > Display > Home Button LED) doesn't even exist. I tried a few 3rd party apps, like Light Flow, and Light Manager, and those didn't work either. As for the IR blaster, the phone comes factory installed with "QuickRemote" which uses the supposed IR blaster. I installed AnyMote, which reports the phone has a "LG Internal IR Blaster" as well. Not to mention, I can see the blaster next to the headphone jack. I'm just really confused as to why any of this is.

Oh I see. Your right. If its covered the n it wont work and it has to be paired to a LG TV or something. You probably already know that. Have you tried it on a different TV?

Yeah, I've tried it on a Sony, Magnavox, Insigina, and Sansui TV, all with no success. AnyMote gives indication that its sent the IR pulses correctly, but no code works on any of the TV's I've tried. I set up my Wii in the Sensor Bar test mode (the one that lets you see IR lights) and the phone doesn't appear to be emitting any IR at all, even with the app that LG installed from the factory. I'm flummoxed.

Tell TracFone that its not working and ask for a replacement.

I'm not really concerned about the IR blaster, though the notification LED is pretty important. I've read that a few people have had this problem, and it seems to have stemmed from the fact that LG just ported over another phone's ROM without really setting it up for the Access' hardware. I suppose I'll have to wait for some dev to come up with a nice new ROM for the Access. Thank you for all your help though. :)
