You will need a flip replacement on your phone. This will more than likely fix your issue. Just visit your local Sprint repair center to check for that part in stock. You should have a working phone in no time assuming they have the part. Charges may apply depending whether or not you the service plan.

The keyboard of my phone works...the screen did come on but now it doesnt come up...when it did come up, i wasnt able to open my messages...the touch screen wasnt working. when i shut off my phone i hear...


Hello,

there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

When you flip phone open inside screen stays white


Moto RAZR phones are notorious for this. Best thing to do - Get a new phone. Inside of the hinge, there is a sensor that detects if the phone is open or shut. When you open the phone, it still thinks its closed, so the screen stays white, and if im correct the outside display should still work. Pretty much not-fixable unless you know someone who can take it apart and re-position the sensor (will void the warranty)

Best thing to do....Upgrade.

This issue can be resolved by getting the flip replaced on the phone. You can check the nearest Sprint repair center to see if they have that part in stock. If they do, you should be able to get your phone fixed right on the spot. Charges may apply if you do not have the service and repair plan.

My Razr Isn't Aware that it is Closed


most flip phones, or flip anythings use magnets and sensors to detect if they're closed or not. Let's do a little experiment. Take a magnet. Now, run that magnet just above and right of the opened RAZR keypad. If your phone acts like it's been closed, then there's nothing wrong with the sensor. That's a GOOD thing. All that needs replacing is the magnet in the top part of the phone. It's located the bottom right of an open phone below the screen, right beside the camera on the inside. Replacing it is as simple as going to http://www.cnn.cn and ordering a new one. (you'll need a T7 driver to open the top part of the housing) If it doesn't shut off then the sensor itself is shot. As far as I know, there's no where on the net to get a replacement component for it.
