Question about Motorola Mobility V551

Phone will not come on

FRUSTRATION! My phone screen went blank and froze. I restarted it and it never came on again. The keyboard will light up but the screen remains black, no sound, no calls, no power on except lighted keyboard. This was the second of the same phone that did that. The first one was eleven months old. Cingular replaced it. This one was ten months old. I switched to Verizon out of frustration and love Verizon and my new LG phone however, I would like to get this one working so I can give it to a friend. Help! Thanks! Sunny D

Re: Phone will not come on

I had the same problem as well. there is a small button to the top right of the settings button. you can take a toothpick or paperclip and gently tap the button several times. tap it to see if you get a response, if not then turn off the phone and turn on the phone with the button tapped.

Blank screen on phone

Your phone is probably bogged down and froze. Restart and try to uninstall as much of your downloaded apps as you can. Restart again.

Stuck in restart mode, keeps restarting and will only work once sd card is taken out

Did you download a new program or app before this happened? Try plugging sd card into a computer and delete any recent downloads and then try the card in your tablet again.

Iphone frozen on white blank screen

Hmm. I've been browsing the net for iphone problems (courtesy of my own) and i remember reading something about this. Look up the Apple website, especially the discussion forums. You might find something there.

In the meantime, try restarting your phone. For that, press both the top on/off button and the Home button together and keep holding them down. Your screen will go blank but keep holding them and the phone will restart.

If this doens't fix things, look up other answers. You might have to restore your phone, like I had to, You should be able to find the procedure to restore easily on the Apple website.

Motorola Razr V3

this problem has probably occured due to the phone being knocked. i used to have a motorola l7 slvr and it did exactly the same, i found that if you hit the back of the phone fairly hard the screen would come back on. im not sure if it is the same for the razr but hey its worth a try. ti be honest i think motorola are terrible mobile phone manufacturers but great 2way radio manufacturers
