It is stuck on the lg screen
I have a g4 that is stuck on the lg opening screen. What do i need to do to get it fixed?
The LG G4 was released in the US in early June 2015, as always focusing on high-end specifications and a refined fashion sense that makes it stand out in the premium smartphone market. Each version of the phone will have a different model number based on if it is sold by a carrier or unlocked (US or International). Some LG G4's are known to have bootloop problems.
I had mine die the same way. I got my stuff off by reflowing it with a high wattage hairdryer. It’s NOT for the feint of heart and requires some electronics experience, but if you think you’re up to heating it up and maintaining it so it runs to get your data off (without a shutdown), a reflow seems to do the trick. It was a little sensitive on mine to how hot it was because I had a 509K phone so it could be anything plus it was mentioned to send it in so I agreed to keep evidence I was in low/nonexistent. It did work, though.
The only real downside is LG may not repair the phone but they just replace your dead G4 with another G4 that will probably die the same way and Depot the dead phone. If they replaced it with a reliable phone I may have sent mine in, but they give you another G4 that will probably fail the same way - basically the bare minimum and I also warned them I would not use it. That was my second (and last) LG phone I ever bought.
Nowadays with the current financing methods in use, I buy my phones outright since financing is of low value proposition (pay now or pay over time) and LG’s track record isn’t good. I have stood my ground on this since 2017 and haven’t looked back.
You have done all the process successfully

This is for a L41C. Before doing a factory reset, which is a major hassle as it erases all your personal data and settings, try following the above procedure, but when you get the LG screen, keeping the volume button down (I think, if it doesn’t work try releasing the volume button) press and release the power button several times. This has twice gotten my past the boot loop problem.
Then back up all your data and pictures to the cloud or hard drive. Get everything synced to the cloud either through Google or other means and make sure the sync works. It’s bound to happen again, though it did wait for a couple of months. I don’t know what caused it after a couple of years of no problem. The second freeze occurred while the phone was working and on Weather.com. I believe the first was another phone freeze. The freeze doesn’t allow the phone to turn off. Taking the battery out to try a restart gets one to the LG screen, making it seem like its a boot problem, but the freezes I had occurred before this..
