Re: Keypad won't light up!!!

There are tiny LEDs embedded into the pcb with the keys on it. Fixing it yourself is probably not possible as obtaining the tiny LEDs will be difficult and installing them nearly impossible. Cell phones are normally profitable for the service you pay and not for the purchase of the phone itself. It's more than likely if you take it back to the place you purchased it from, they'll exchange the phone and you'll receive a brand new or refurbished one.

My screen display is upside down on my razr V3, please help fix


The reason the display on your phone is upside down is that there is a problem with the flex of your phone.

The flex of a phone is the link that connects the screen to the keypad. It is the mechanism that makes the phone able to be flipped.

to fix the flex of a motorola razr V3 is quite uneasy, unless you have the basic skills required to fix it.

get the appropriate screwdriver,

unscrew the phone,

carefully detach the screen from the keypad and adjust or replace the flex. carefully couple back the phone and it will be okay once again.

take care

Humming Sound

Hello, that is actually happening when the light that is on in the keypad. When its lit up, u will hear a slight humm. Its known as the keypad hiss amongst people in the know. That is the part that motorola used that makes the sound. its a very common thing. It was the first time motorola used that type of LED in the keypad flex. Hope that helps. Only way around it is to turn off the keypad light.
