Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Dead phone but keypad flashes

Hi, I had the exact thing happen to my phone as reported by Heliolis below. It had been acting strange for a while where my screen would not illuminate after I opened the cover, but it would generally work if I plugged it back into the charger. It's on a relatively new battery, as well. Any other suggestions than a new battery? Posting by heliolis on Jul 29, 2007Report abuse Hi, Went to charge my V3. Plugged the adaptor into the phone. The screen indicated that it was charging for about 3 seconds and then the phone went dead. Now, phone is completely dead and the keypad is flashing. Unable to turn on the phone, unable to charge it. No water damage and was not dropped. Tried removing the battery and the SIM card...nothing :( Any suggestions?! THANKS!

When iam sliding the phone screen become white & keys r not working


The flex of the phone is faulty that is why it is acting that way. Replace the flex of the phone and it will work okay. The flex is what allows information reach the screen when you slide the phone. Once it is bad, the screen will be acting strange and information will not be getting to the screen of the phone.

So replace the flex and the phone will be okay.

Thank you for using fixya.

I got a new motorola blur. Liked it, had it only for 2 days and now it won't turn on. I have tried holding the on button and camera buttons at the same time, but it will not turn on. What else can I do?

Things that you need to do

1. What happened to the Phone before it acted strangely that way.
(well if its accidentally dropped or splashed with water)

2. Try to change batteries or switching them with a working one.
3. If it works try to OBSERVE / If its showing lines or distortions on screen - then there must be a leak on the battery. Or the reserved module is busted and needs to be replaced Or its a battery short circuit.

2002 F-150 regular cab. Idling seems like it wanted to die. While driving would rev up and down wanting to die. Finally died at a red light and had to be towed home. In the driveway it acts like a dead...

From what you describe, it sounds like your alternator died. The battery's main function is to provide power to start the vehicle. Once started, the alternator takes over and provides the main source of power to the truck, and also recharges the battery.
When the alternator stops working, the car starts to run solely off the battery. It will work for a little while, but as the battery starts to lose power, strange things will happen with the electronics. The computers and other electronics that control the vehicle are very dependent on a constant, steady flow of voltage. When that voltage dips below 11 or 10 volts, the car may start to run badly or strange things may happen with electrical system.
When there was finally not enough power to keep the car running, it shut off. Of course, once this happens, there will not be enough power left to start the truck back up.

Exact problem!

First of all do not put your phone in the freezer anymore because you might have water damage in your keypad and freezing it could make it worse overall. Now you should leave your keypad out to dry for a day or two then check if it works or not if it doesnt dont worry you can order a replacement keypad at this is where I get all my replacement parts at and they are really good quality and price best of luck to you.

Dryer struk,

You said, hi my dryer is just 1 year old..lately its touch screen has not been responding correctly!you touch one thing and it registers the choice below it---so when you try the top of the list function you have to be touching outside of the screen-that is impossible.Please help!!! Teo.

huuum At your service!

With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,

First try this ! Unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem GREAT.

You know you still have a warranty for one year and some parts perhaps longer!
And if it's just past one year IT'S OKAY TOO!
Ask for a supervisor!
They know "it's easier to keep the customers you have today than find new ones"
i do this all the time for my customers!
And if after they fix it,....It happens again then you tell them to swap it for a new one!!!
THEY CALL THIS A "PUSH PULL"! We do this everyday for some company or another! Common practice. JUST BE CALM AND SWEET AND PERSISTENT , if that happens later!

Call them and make a warranty service appointment!
If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

Mobile Acting Strange

Have you tried downloading the Nokia software updater from the nokia website? After you download this, backup your phone. Then plug it in and it will update the firmware. This might help.
