SOURCE: Everything works but no display
Ah! My friend. you are lucky that you ask the right person. I have fixed so many V551 with LCD defect so this symtom is usual on v551 and most Motorola Flip phones. As you know, the construction of the LCD cable has been designed by a long ellectric thin wire and one side will connect into the main and CallerID smaller LCD and the other end will connect to the main board and the part in the middle will stuck inside the hinge where the flip will apply a lot of force for the function of open and close. for a long period of usage, it will either worn out the middle part of the cable or loose the connection of either side which cause loosing display. That is why you can call and receive but cannot see anything. The simple thing is open the case and check first at the main board side for any bad contact and tougher the other side is inside the main LCD. If you find both side are still good in connection then the middle part is bad due to flipping so many time of the user in order to open and close. YOU THEN NEED TO REPLACE THE NEW LCD. I have two solutions to help you in this case: 1) View on the link below for the instruction of how to open the housing. http://sbarth.dyndns.org/seiten/rahmen.php?nav=motorolahandy Sorry the link is in German but you can look at the picture to follow. 2) Or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want me to repair the phone for you.

SOURCE: Razr V3i charging problem
Hi V3 is very fragile and if you use the incompatible accessories, you can ruin their ports easily. One weak point of V3 Phone is the SIM card Port is not an opening flap like other GSM phone but using pin and spring Port style which is mean you have to push your SIM card in and use the SIM Card edge to push the pin down in order to contact with SIM metal area interface. But by pushing force is varied from users so too strong and too hurry will damage the pin. If one of the pins is damaged, when you slide the SIM card in, the contact is missing of one or two pins due to damaging of the pin cause the error message "Insert SIM". In this case, only way is needed to replace the SIM Board underneath. If you can do it yourself, please follow the instruction pictures below. If you are not sure and never do this before, I suggest you send the unit to Motorola Repair Center. Your SIM Card Board and charging port will need to be replaced. http://www.itsjustmerob.com/files/V3_Razr-repair.pdf This is a Full Motorola V3 Officially Service Manual and even the Motorola Repair Center also has this one. so copy this link and print it out. Around hundreds plus pages but can be your Guide which you cannot find anywhere else. I gave it to you free but I have purchased it before. Hope that you can get it fix. Other solution is looking V3 parts on sale a lot on Ebay and use them to replace part to your phone will be cheaper if your phone is no longer under warranty. If it is still under cover then send the unit to them and don't spend time and money to do it yourself. But if it is out of warranty and want to avoid costly repair then use the method in the manual I provided you and you will be able to get your phone fix. Good Luck

I plugged my phone up and all of a sudden got the message "Unable to charge" on it. I changed chargers (i had an extra one), i changed batteries (i had an extra one), and i swapped every combination imaginable.
My Razr's plug has an opening to plug the phone that resembles a person's navel, and it got dirt and dust bunnies in it while it was in and out of my pockets. I was able to take an old tooth brush (or your new one if your really desperate), and got a can of office duster that you use to clean keyboards. Turn the can of office duster upside down for a second while you are spraying it and liquid will come out as you are spraying the connector. Immediately after that, use your toothbrush to work it inside the dirty connector to free it from anything that will keep it from making good contact. Then, hold the can of office duster upright and it will only spray air... and blow the connector free of anything that you loosened with the brush. Repeat this process if after all this it still doesn't work... because you have a REALLY REALLY dirty connector if it doesn't work after the first try.
