My Razr Isn't Aware that it is Closed

Even when my Razr is shut, it thinks it's open- the side keys are active so the volume changes all the time, the logo on the front screen says "T-Mobile" instead of the time, and I can't hang up anymore by shutting it. Does anyone have any solutions?

Most flip phones, or flip anythings use magnets and sensors to detect if they're closed or not. Let's do a little experiment. Take a magnet. Now, run that magnet just above and right of the opened RAZR keypad. If your phone acts like it's been closed, then there's nothing wrong with the sensor. That's a GOOD thing. All that needs replacing is the magnet in the top part of the phone. It's located the bottom right of an open phone below the screen, right beside the camera on the inside. Replacing it is as simple as going to http://www.cnn.cn and ordering a new one. (you'll need a T7 driver to open the top part of the housing) If it doesn't shut off then the sensor itself is shot. As far as I know, there's no where on the net to get a replacement component for it.

The magnet may have slid out of its slot when u took it apart look on the right side of the camera under the cable to see if it is there and if it is put it in the hole on the right side under the rubber piece

Ok I am working on a full picture guide on how to fix this. I'm also working on an easier way but that is still in progress I'll keep you posted

Posted on May 18, 2007

The phone uses a magnet to sense if the lid is shut or not. The magnet itself may be damaged, or maybe it just isn't "magnetic" anymore. The magnet is located about a centimetre to the right of the camera. One way to test this is to take a regular magnet, and run it over the top right area above the keypad of an open phone. If it acts like the lid is closed, then there's nothing wrong with the censor, just the magnet itself. New magnets can be purchased at http://www.cnn.cn. Anyway, if it's the censor (if it doesn't act like it's closed when you run a magnet over that part of the phone) then your sensor is shot. There's really no way to fix that as there's no parts online to purchase to replace it.

I have the same problem, but i didnt drop it or anything. It thinks that it is open the entire time, for instance, i have it set to answer when i flip it open. But, now i have to press teh answer key to accept calls, and the back screen does not show anything but the cingular symbol. For a solution, i need to know what makes the phone "closed". Is there a button or a senser that needs to be touched for it to know its closed?

Changed battery terminals and now dinging wont stop unless warning light fuse removed


It sounds like it thinks the key is still in it all the time. Try turning the key forward to the on position, but not running, so the dinging stops. disconnect the battery. Remove the key completely and reconnect the battery.

Razr in mute mode


the only mute function is to mute/unmute a call during the active call.
It is the - key (center button at the top of the keypad)
Have you turned the volume too low?
If you turn the volume to low, it will stay low all the time until you reset it to a higher level.
You just press the volume keys on the side of the flip lid or set in the setup menu.

Ring volume changing on its own.


Sounds to me like you have a stuck key somewhere on your phone. Was it dropped? Or maybe you hit it too hard. Look closely at the buttons on the side of the screen . you know, the ones that normally change your volume when it's open. One of those is malfunctioning in the down or closed position.
