Re: won't recgonize charger now

I'm not very sure about how the problem can be fixed, but the best thing to try is probably to make sure the charger is clean, and if it still doesn't work, try it on a different RAZR charger.

My phone turned off yesterday n now won't turn back on at all. What do I do I need to use it today

Try these few simple steps.

1. Remove battery.
2. Wait 30 seconds then replace battery
3. Plug in your phone charger.
4. Leave for 10 minutes.

Now try to switch on your phone.

If it doesn't switch on, take back to where it was purchased.
It may just be a charger problem but it could also be charger port or phone hardware.

Getting unauthorized charger message when using universal charger for my Motorola Rival A455 phone--how to fix?

I had the same problem with my rival. I used a universal USB charger. It worked fine for a month or so and then stopped charging completely. I went to the Motorola website and downloaded the charging driver. I haven't had a problem since.

Motorola v325 won't charge after using phillips universal charger

Sometimes a bad charger can send a high voltage charge to the phone and fry the charging port on the phone. That is why a lot of the car chargers today have a fuse on them now. So that it will blow the fuse on the charger, instead of frying your phone's charger spot.

Unauthorized charger everytime i plug it in.

There may be a problem with your charger output. Do you have another charger you could try?

A temporary workaround is to reboot the phone with the charger still attached. It should now say "Authorized" and start charging.

"Unauthorized Charger"

you can try to clean the charger port (but first make sure its not bent, or broken - the pins are really tiny and hard to see, so make sure)
But try cleaning the charge port on the phone and the charger with denatured (rubbing) alcohol, and a toothbrush -

Just make sure not to plug it in when you do this!

and clean both the charger and phone, make sure neither are bent
lastly, try a new charger!

V3 Mototola Razr Phone Freezes and charger won't work

unfortunately the phone needs to be reflash but this will delete all information on the phone.
So take the phone to a mobile service center and have that done.

Its the battery.

You can try putting the battery in the freezer for 8 hours, then leave it at room temperature for 24 to see if it can be saved.

Best of Luck.
