Honestly, it sounds like the Keypad Flex, or Keymat with Flex cable has been exposed to moisture. I would recommend taking it or sending it to a service center, but if you want to try yourself... here are some instructions to help you get moisture corrosion out of the phone.

I'm betting if you open it up, you will find corrosion in the main cable channel on the mother board as well as on the end of the cable itself.

I work a repair center and perform the functions below daily, but you must understand that you open the phone at your own risk.

With a T6 torx screwdriver, remove the two screws you will see under the battery cover towards the bottom of the phone. Once the screws are removed, gently lift up where the battery contact terminals are, GENTLY. The main flex bends and plugs into the board right there. With a small flat tip screwdriver, unplug the main flex from the motherboard. Once this is unplugged, work that back piece slowly until it comes off. The main motherboard will come with it.

I would just about bet you will see some corrosion where the main flex plugs into the board. Use some rubbing alcohol and a toothbrush to clean both the plug and the end of the main flex. Let dry completely, reassemble and see what you get.

You may also have some corrosion in the top 1/2. You can get into it by removing the 4 rubber bushings at each corner around the main inner lcd, and then remove the 4 T5 torx screws. Once the screws are removed, close the phone and hold it looking at the outside screen with the camera on top. Start working the outer cover off at the top by the camera lens. With the screws out, it is just snapped on.

Once that outer cover is off, you will see upper plug for the main flex on the upper left. Unplug this and clean the plug and the end of the flex the same way, rubbing alcohol and toothbrush.

Preferably 91% rubbing alcohol because it evaporates cleaner.

If this isn't something you want to try yourself, I recommend Wireless Unlimited - Cell phone and computer repair.

If you mail it to them, they can have it fixed and back in the mail to you the same day they recieve it.

Please remember to rate. Thanks

I have a motorola razr v3 that i hear fine out of but others cant hear me


You will have to get your cellphone repaired that is the only solution to fix this problem.IF it is under warranty then please get it replaced.
You can try taking the phone apart if you want and clean and reattached the connections to the speaker in the phone.

Good luck,

Screen went black on my motorola razor

Nothing you can do about that but replace the whole flip assembly or the LCD on the flip. Another cause for this is a bad component on the main board, probably faulty or a blown capacitor. Liquid can also cause this problem, if any rain or condensation seeped through your phones keys then your lcd will fail. So your only fix is to replace the main lcd or flip assembly, you can also take it to your carriers repair center and have the phone swapped if they cant fix it for you. Good luck.
