Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
I dropped my phone about a week ago and I still receive incoming calls but the whole screen is blank and I have tried everything I could but I have no money and need my phone! what should I do?
I had the same problem with my Razr V3, it was way out of warranty so I had a go at fixing it, and it wasn't too hard.
(I had the blank/off screen problem but the rest of the phone seemed functional)
I took off the rubber pegs on the inside of the flip-screen to reveal the screws. They need a T5 screwdriver head (tiny star shape). I removed all 4 from that side.
I then 'forced' the back casing of the flip-screen off (side with camera). The key is to open the end furthest from the hinge, then it will simply lift off.
(I read a complicated guide suggesting that you use something like a creditcard to slide it off, I'd give that a go first as I did do some scratch damage when using the screwdriver)
Once open (might be dusty), there was a thin 'belt' coming through from the main part of the handset (by the hinge), it has a black square on it. This was simply flailing about, so I inserted it securely back into it's socket (the only place it can go, same shape)
[I guess thats the power supply to the screen]
I would re-attach the back panel hinge end first (camera end).
Then simply screw it back together.
The T5 screwdriver isn't everyday stuff, most sets only go down to T10 it seems. Maybe if you have family friend who fixes things you could borrow one. Apparently those types of screws are used somewhere in cars so maybe a mechanic or car-person?
(I was a bit narrow-minded and frantically bought a little set for £5)
Hope that helps.
