Wife washed her Motorola Razr

Yes in the washing machine. I dried it out and it wouldn't charge so I bought a new battery off eBay which charged great and the phones works EXCEPT the microphone. You get a call and you answer but the person you are talking to can't hear you. Any ideas? Thanks

You may need to replace your existing microphone. Check the type to make sure it isn't a unique model for your phone you may have a little trouble finding one to replace it. hope you have insurance becuase your provide may be able to get you one faster for sadly more money.

Dismentel your cell and wash it with acetone solution by rubbing your old tooth brush and let it dry for half an hour and then assemble it and try again

You really need to Upgrade to a New Phone. My RAZR did the Same thing for over a Year and a Half until the Flip screen went Completely Blank.

Razor battrey

Did the phone show it was charging on the display? Was the charger firmly connected to the phone? The batteries will go bad after a period of time of recharge cycles. I have bought replacement batteries for my RAZR on eBay. Remove the battery and do a search on eBay for a NEW battery from a dealer using the battery P/N on the battery. I found a higher capacity battery for mine that lasts even longer on a charge than the original one that came with my RAZR. You can do a search on eBay for "RAZR battery". Look at the mAH rating on your battey, Try finding a replacement with the same or higher rating than your original. The higher the mAH rating, the longer it will last between recharge cycles.

Good luck!

Motorola razr v3m battery problems and bootloader ini showing on screen

Well it is both. It should only ever say bootloader when it is plugged in to a PST machine and getting the software updated. I would say that it the hardware is causing the poor battery life or a combo of the battery and the phone.

V3 Razr

It's the phone itself that needs to be fixed. Buyer beware as they say about Ebay. There are cheap repair shops around depending on where you live. No more than $50. Might have to call around to fid one.

Razr V3i charging problem

Hi V3 is very fragile and if you use the incompatible accessories, you can ruin their ports easily. One weak point of V3 Phone is the SIM card Port is not an opening flap like other GSM phone but using pin and spring Port style which is mean you have to push your SIM card in and use the SIM Card edge to push the pin down in order to contact with SIM metal area interface. But by pushing force is varied from users so too strong and too hurry will damage the pin. If one of the pins is damaged, when you slide the SIM card in, the contact is missing of one or two pins due to damaging of the pin cause the error message "Insert SIM". In this case, only way is needed to replace the SIM Board underneath. If you can do it yourself, please follow the instruction pictures below. If you are not sure and never do this before, I suggest you send the unit to Motorola Repair Center. Your SIM Card Board and charging port will need to be replaced. This is a Full Motorola V3 Officially Service Manual and even the Motorola Repair Center also has this one. so copy this link and print it out. Around hundreds plus pages but can be your Guide which you cannot find anywhere else. I gave it to you free but I have purchased it before. Hope that you can get it fix. Other solution is looking V3 parts on sale a lot on Ebay and use them to replace part to your phone will be cheaper if your phone is no longer under warranty. If it is still under cover then send the unit to them and don't spend time and money to do it yourself. But if it is out of warranty and want to avoid costly repair then use the method in the manual I provided you and you will be able to get your phone fix. Good Luck

Phone is dead wont take charge

You simply need a new battery. Razr batteries are notorious for loosing life and the entire problem is the chargers you are using. You MUST have one with an IC chip that tells it when to stop charging otherwise watch how long you are charging it. Also when you have a new battery let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging this helps a lot.
