Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

I push the on button and the screen flashes for a second and turns off

I've never had problems with this phone, until tonight when in the middle of a conversation, the phone went off. I tried to turn it back on, but then it went on off, on off, on and finally off. Now, when I push the on button, the screen flashes for a second, then shuts off. The water strip is still white and I haven't dropped it. What can I do? All the stores are closed now, and I need to call this person back.

My Iphone 3G is not turning it has the apple sing in the middle of the screen and stay like that, I did not drop it in into water or anything like that ... what can I do?

To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:

Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.

Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Error while syncing my iPhone to itunes-phone won't turn on now

in order to fix your phone, you`ll have to force it to DFU mode and then iTunes should be able to detect it. Once detected, it would ask you to update it to latest firmware. Afta the update your phone would work just fine.

To get it to DFU, follow these steps.

1.Connect your phone to PC.
2. Turn it off completely. To turn it off, press and hold the power button untill you get the the option, slide to turn off.
3. Then, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds.
4. Without leaving the power button, now press and hold the HOME button, for 10seconds.
5. Now leave the power button, but keep holding the home button for next 20 seconds.

The phone should be detected by the PC to be in recovery mode. Now, iTunes will help you update and/or restore your phone.

I was running updates with my phone connected to itunes on my computer, power went out during the middle of syncing. now it wont turn on. i hold both buttons and the apple icon appears for about 5 seconds...

Open up itunes first.

You need to restore iphone in DFU mode.

Restart computer and use a different USB cable if possible.

Hold power button 10 seconds, don't let go, now push in home button 6 seconds.
Now release only the power button.

Keep holding 'home' button until itunes sees it and allows you to restore.

click restore.

If this still does not work then do all of this on a different computer.

It wont turn on

Sounds like water damage but try this......... 1) press the * and # and Power button all at once - if the screen fires up with a black screen and some info - then you can flash the phone and hopefully recover it; 2. If the above works - you need to find a flash file and the software to flash it with Good Luck
