Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Screen and Faceplate non-responsive

My phone is current in this state; where I can recieve, answer, and make phone calls but cannot get any visuals on neither the faceplate screen nor the main screen. When I take out the battery and restart my phone, (with the phone open) the phone will not show any visuals (hello Moto) nor make any sound. If I restart the phone, and close it fairly quickly, the phone starts. HOWEVER upon opening the phone to unlock it, the main screen appears white, then goes black. I can enter numbers, make calls, receive calls, but the phone will not allow me to get any visuals (ie. text messages, incoming calls) Anyone have a cure or thoughts?

OK again BATTERY!! replace that then see. If that isn't the problem that should be a connection problem (if you haven't severed the electrical ribbon in any way)

    ok I have figured out a way to fix this. If you open the phone and the screen is white and the top screen shows that the phone is closed, and when the phone is closed the top screen looks like it is open the problem is the magnet and the sensor in the keypad. To fix this you need to switch to polorization of the magnet. I did this by putting a magnet underneith the battery at the top by the hinge and another one on top of the original one. If your actually willing to attempt this I'm making a picture guide for it now so just reply to this if you would like it.



I have a similar problem and have had it almost since I got my phone. I have had my phone "repaired" but it still does it. The only advice I can offer you is that my phones screen eventually work again after a few days, so I would be interested to know if this is the same for you. Also others who have described similar problems have been advised it relates to a "strip problem", but I do not know what that is. Perhaps this means something that can help you.

How do I identify extensions, transfer calls, conference call, change time.

To identify the extensions: if its a display set, press feature 00 and the screen will show the extension number. press feature 00 to exit programming.
If its a non-display set access the intercom and call a display set.The extension number will be displayed on the screen that is recieving the call.

To transfer a call: while your on the call to be transfered, press the transfer button and then the extension number of the person you wish to transfer the call toand hang up.

For a conference call:while on the line with the first caller,press the conf key (the caller will be placed on hold) place a call to your second party when they answer press the conf key again. all 3 parties will be bridged(you + the 2 lines) to get rid of one of the callers press thier line and feature 6 (conference drop)

Changing the time on a Partner system is done on either ext 10 or 11. At one of those ext's press the feature key and "00"
next press the left hand intercom twice
the display should say system programming
enter in "#103"
the display should say system time and the current programmed time
enter the new time in 24 hour format
press feature "00" to logout

Phone goes blank

sir is it blinks with white screen only or blinks with white screen then shut down?
-if the phone can receive/send text and mms messages while the incoming and outgoing calls become shut down,i think you need to replace the battery because it is weak.use only original battery.
-and if it is blink with white screen only try to reset all settings or reformat your phone,if not work hardware problem go to repair shop.

Still can't get fax not to pick up when answering machine is connected.

if you have the fax-575 there should be a TAD setting.

This is the setting you would use if you're using an answering machine on the same phone line as your fax machine.

To set the Recieve Mode :

Press Recieve Mode. The LCD display shows your current selection.

Continue to press Recieve Mode until your new selection appears. After 2 seconds the screen returns to the date and time display, along with your new Recieve Mode setting.

The 4 Recieve modes are Fax Only, Fax/Tel, TAD:Answering Machine, Manual.

Hope this helps!!!

Cant send fax

Recieving faxes
  • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
    • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
  • Dial the fax number from a phone    
    • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
    • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
      • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
        • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
        • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
      • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
Sending faxes
  • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
    • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
      • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
    • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient

Changing the faceplate on RAZR V3

Very carefully.

Sorry for the "smart" answer, but it really is the solution. Make sure your work area is clean and free of clutter on a non abrasive surface. Remove all screws underneath the rubber "plugs" covering them and then the plate should come off.
