  1. Turn off your phone.
  2. Press and hold the two soft keys down until you come to a black screen with white words on it. (a soft key is the one you use to get to the start menu. It has a little white line, kind of like a minus sign.)
  3. Push the call button once you get to that black screen. It will ask you whether you want to reset or cancel. Press the send/call/green phone button.
  • Make sure you don't power off while resetting, for it may cause more damage.
  • It would be best to do this with at least 50% battery. I suggest plugging it into the charger so it doesn't die during this process.
**Note that EVERYTHING will be deleted-pictures, texts, videos, phone contacts (but not sim) so prepare for that before you reset!**

This has really helped me out. I get that stupid white screen all the time!

The "soft buttons are right below the screen hold both down then turn on the phone this will make the phone ask if you want to reset to default so try removing the batt first as this it the last resort you will lose all changes made to the phone except mem card and sim card stored items worked on my shadow fine good luck peeps

Mine gets stuck on the SHADOW T-Mobile page at first... I leave it alone and it starts up... Then it gets stuck on any page it wants that I have used, it also mixes/scrambles pages...
Everything is SOOO SLOW....Could not delete a voicemail today as it did not feel like sending off the '7' signal...

It started when I ran out of battery the other night.... yesterday when I left it on but in 'airplane mode' it died in one hour from fully charged...??

I am quite sure it is battery related? I have ordered a new one from Amazon for 98 cents.... plus $6 S/H... LOL

Good luck!

Color shadowing on screen


I had similar symptoms about a year ago. Also came on sudden. The red convergence chip had burned out (poor heat sinking on this model Hitachi). Replacing the color convergence chips fixed it. ($50 for parts.) First, however, have you tried the "magic focus" function? That's explained in the manual, which is available online IIRC, but I'd have to look for the link if you need it.

White screen


I have the same problem with my z3. I left my phone on the table, and all of a sudden, my normal screen was replaced by a flashing white screen. I called T-Mobile, and they had me try to reset the phone. You can do this by going to settings, then Master Reset. This will restore the original settings, and the rep said that sometimes this helps. Master Clear is the next step, which wipes everything off the phone. Nothing has worked for my phone, so I have to call Motorola today to try and get a new one. Good luck with your phone.
