Backlight display not working

Hey Dannes1956,

The Motorola V3m has a light sensor, which is visible just above the right soft key -- the key above the CLR button. This light sensor turns the backlight on when you press a key in the dark and disables the keypad backlight when you are in a well-lit area.

Your phone sounds like it's operating normally. I believe they disabled the option to activate or deactivate that feature.

Hope this helps,

Keypad Problem

Have you tried it in the dark? There is a photo sensor that is located just above the right soft-key. It looks like a pin hole. Put your thumb over the hole and press a key on the keypad, you should see the keys light up. The purpose of this sensor is to prolong the battery life by not having to light up the keypad in the daylight.

There is a way to disable the photo sensor so that the keypad is on whether it is day or night. Look for a setting that allows you to turn the "battery saver" feature off.

Good luck!

Motorola razr v3 keypad....!!!

This is usually caused by one button being stuck down, and the volume control buttons on the left of the main display, and the voice button on the right of the main display are the usual culprits. Try squeezing them and making sure they move normally. Then power down the phone, pop out the battery, and give it another shot.

Motorola V3 Razr Keyboard will not light up

Are you getting sounds from the dial pad? It should default to momentary lighting, but it can be adjusted for longer time. It sounds faulty, did you purchase a refurb?

Keypad troubleshooting

when I open my phone it seems to be stuck on the right arrow button so it goes to "IM account". I was really confused this morning because even if I click exit, it goes back to the same thing on its own. when I get a chance to press menu, it just whirls around as if I'm pressing the arrow over to choose a category but I'm not.. its weird.. probably the weirdest phone I've ever had
