From time to time you would need to reset your LG K30 depending on the severity of the issue. Most of the time a simple reboot (Soft Reset) is enough to so solve common problems such as freezing, lagging or overheating on K30.
However, as time goes by and we keep on filling the storage space with apps and other stuff the phone tends to get slow and a time comes when factory data reset becomes mandatory to keep things going.
In this post, we’ re going to check out all forms of reset available on LG K30 and how to get the most out of them in case of troubleshooting. So, Let’s get going –
LG K30 Soft Reset
A soft reset is nothing but a reboot. While the phone is ON, long-press the power key and among the listed options, tap “Power off and restart” to restart the phone.
A soft reset closes running apps and clears the RAM. Most of the time a soft reset is enough to restore your phone back to a normal working state.
How to Force Shutdown on LG K30
In case your K30 is frozen, then pressing the power button won’t do anything. In such a case a forced shutdown is the solution. However, removing the battery is not an option in the case of LG K30 due to the non-removable battery.
To force shutdown, Long press the power key for 10 seconds and the phone would restart.
If this doesn’t work.
Press the Volume Down + Power key together, until the phone reboots.
This kind of force shutdown also works in Fastboot Mode & Download Mode on LG K30.

Power off your phone.
Press the Volume Down + Power Key. As soon as the phone vibrates, leave the power key and hold it again until your K30 is in recovery mode. In the whole process don’t leave the volume down button.
The recovery mode is nothing but the “Factory Data Reset” screen with a white background as shown below.
In recovery mode, the touchscreen doesn’t work.
Use volume keys to move up / down and power key to select the option.

Again move down using volume down key to “YES” and confirm your selection using the Power Button. This would initiate the factory data reset.
