Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Keypad is dead. Phone still work

Hi,
My 8 month old baby got hold of my Razr V3 the other day and drowned it in her drool when she put it in her mouth and sucked on it - as babies do. Since then the keypad no longer works. The phone still starts but I am unable to enter my PIN to activate the SIMM and all my contact numbers are saved to the phone (not the SIMM). Does anyone know a way to obtain my contact details? I have tried connecting it to my PC and using the Motorola software but it does not "see" the mobile's contents. Would really appreciate some help as I have some very important contact numbers I stand to lose otherwise.

Regards
Eddie

My one year old son got a hold of my Metropcs Razr phone tonight and drooled on it, now none of the buttons work except for the power button. Is there a keypad lock on this phone that i dont know about? Or...


The board may have become defective Try leave it out to dry in just above room temperature for a week if the keyboard still continues to fail the board will need replacing.

Can't use keypad, only the on/off button works


If your baby got a hold of it, it's likely there is water damage.
Check your battery. Most of the batteries have a sticker. depending on the brand it will be red or smudgy purple or something else if it was wet - no way to tell if i dont know what brand you have.
you can go to your local store and get them to plug in their cell brite and download the numbers to a new phone. If the phone will stay on for a few minutes and is on the home screen, they will be able to do this.

Motorla Not working


your phone probably has liquid damage,
if u know how to open the screws on the back cover
then u can attempt to sort the liquid damage out, if not
take it in to a service centre.
there are 3 keypad ic's next to the flex connector which are causing the phone keypad not to work.

Motorola RAZR V3 - Problem With Buttons


my son's phone is about 7 months old too and today when i turned it on it would not go past verizon welcome screen, no matter what. i don't use this phone, but if your volume controller is on the keyboard it could be that the keypad is going bad, which appears to be common with the razr. if it is the keypad, you can pick up a keypad flex cable for about $12 on ebay, and it's a very easy fix, but if it's just 7 months old, i'd return it under warranty, that's what i'm going to do. Let me know what you find out. I just think it's really strange that our phone suffered no damage of any kind, it just quit.

V3 dead but keypad flashing


I had exactly the same problem. After unsucessfully looking for a solution on the net I removed the simm chip and set it aside. The next day, I put it on PC usb charge and left it overnight. The next day, I powered it up and it worked. I turned it off and replaced the simm and it is now working fine. Go figure...

Keypad will not work


This happened to mine after I got the Razor wet - I pulled the battery and the sim card, blew it out with a can of compressed air and it worked for about 8 months. Then it got hot out in my car and started doing the same thing - blowing it out hasnt worked again-
