I have the same phone and this also happened to me. When you droped the phone the battery got dislodged from the battery compartment. Unplug the cell phone then remove the back of the phone. To do that press the button at the back of the cell phone at the button, slide the cover up ward. Then remove the battery for at least 30 seconds then put it back in again. Put the bottom of the battery in first then the top ,make sure the battery is in firmly. Replace the cover then turn it on again.

Screen is black


The strip that connects the screen to the motherboard, probably fall out of the socket. That's why you don't see anything on the screen. It's just my opinion though.

The wether does have something to do with it. After a lightning storm humidity is a problem. the humidity and heat can make the screen lighter, kind of grey. After the wether clears up it will take an hour to regain full color. Also it could be if it was charging while the storm happened it could have blown a fuse and messed up you screen colors

it is not totaled, it sounds like corrupt phone software issue which is an easy fix and can be done for free (I see you breathing a sigh of relief when i said that lol), the way i would fix it is this:

(side note: if you flash with generic software you can debrand the phone - something phone shops charge around £30 to do and will speed the phone up slightly aswell as loosing all the **** that networks like putting on every handset)

when done with that google a programme called aerix if you want to unlock it aswell (also free)

Hhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllpppppp


I used to have this phone. Best tmobile phone ever. Take off the battery hatch and battery, and look for a round red sticker, if you don't see one, Don't panic, That means your phone isn't water damaged. If you find a white round sticker, hen your phone isn't damaged by water and it is an internal problem. Get me back ~miikee

Doesn't turn on, Red LED light stays lit


Try restoring the blackberry using the blackberry firmware update utility, if the problem persists, it's a logic board issue. there are blackberry repair websites that show you how to do the replacement yourself, otherwise here is a service that can repair any Blackberry Bold, Storm, Pearl, Curve, 8800 for screen, lenses,
track balls, usb ports, waterdamage etc.
The website is: Blackberry Repair

Razr- turning on camera makes screen turn black but keypad stays lit


the easiest thing tpo do here is take it to a professional but if you want to try updating your software off the Motorola website. (this require a data cable or bluetooth in your computer) This fixes a lot of software problems with the razor. If this doesn't work then you will have to reflash your Firmware which is like the Windows Xp of the phone. This does require a professional as it can destroy the phone
