Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3xx Cellular Phone

1 Answer

My Motorola V3xx died. I cannot get it to turn on. When I charge it the red indicating light comes on showing that it is charging, but even while it is hooked up to the charger I cannot get the phone to turn on - no screen indication, no button indication (i.e., the buttons don't light up. Swapping the battery did not help - same issue. The phone was not dropped, it did not get wet (moisture indication patch is still white). The phone did fully discharge and turn off in the niddle of a phone call and I have not been able to turn it on since. i have a similar problem but a little different because well mine was not dropped nor wet but when i try to turn it on the keypad turns on for five seconds but then turns off right away. when i try to charge it the charging light goes on for five seconds and turns off and the screen is blank. i turned off in a middle me writing a text.

    My problem is slightly different than anie2865 bu identical to that of strawbeyn2u. i.e. I too get no red indicator light when charging and absolutely nothing on the phone lights up. Also, I switched batteries and nothing changed.

    My phone is dead except for a screen telling me "battery is OK, connect USB cable" and the software version the phone is expecting me to load. I can not find this software anywhere. Does it exist or is the phone truly dead. Any advice would be helpful.

    same here for my v3xx, when i pressed the power button the touchpad will light but the screen won't and still remains black, but when i charged it the red light charging indicator somehow turns on too, means it still charging, there's a time when i turn it on and in about 5 secs i hear the opening sounds (when the 3pg screen shows) so it means it operate, but my screen still not working, still having problem, need help. tnx =3

When I plug my Motorola H710 bluetooth in to charge the light only blinks red and when I use it it never seems to turn on?!

Here's the instructions for charging.
Plug the Motorola charger into the end of
the headset.
The indicator light turns red when the battery is charging. It may take up to 1 minute for the indicator light to turn on. When the headset's battery is fully charged (about 2hours), the indicator light turns green.

From your information, it may very well be that the battery should be replaced if the red light doesn't go off as it should.

Here's a link to the full instructions. I hope this helps.

Garmin 530 doesn't turn on

if the light goes off it would indicate that the battery is fully charged.
does the unit function like a phone when charging as in showing a chg indicator even if it is off? If so there are more serious issue than maybe just a bad power switch.

....motorola v3xx won;t turned ON!!..HELP

Have you tried replacing the battery? Also try this first - remov battery and SIM card. Wait 1 minute. Replace battery and SIM and power on. See if that helps.

If problem persists, you may have to repair the phone.

Can either be that your battery has died or your charger did not charge properly.
If possible try another charger if this doesn't work then a different battery if you still have the same response with both options then it is a phone fault and a tech may need to look at it

My motorola H700 keeps staying red when charging

Wait, how long have you waited for it to charge? It's supposed to stay red until over 80% charge, then switch to yellow. When it is fully charged, it goes to green. When you mean it stays red when plugged in, have you waited the 2 hours?
