Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

V3 Razr I have a V3 Razr I bought off of ebay about a month ago. It will not take a charge. Put a new fresh fully charged battery in it and it drained it quickly and will not charge. My carrier has resync'd it a couple of times and replaced the sims card (which was very nice of them) but that has not helped. It now turns its self on and off, if you are able to get a charge to it at all.

Re: V3 Razr

It's the phone itself that needs to be fixed. Buyer beware as they say about Ebay. There are cheap repair shops around depending on where you live. No more than $50. Might have to call around to fid one.

My razr v3 died yesterday. tried all night charging, still dead. no juice to turn on. bought 2 years ago, worth new battery?

Well... I would say no.. Not worth battery.. I had the same thing happen to me where my phone wouldn't charge and we bought a new battery for $50.00 and then we find out my phone is shot.. so I would strongly recommend getting a new phone..

Invalid Battery

Totally discharging the battery is the way to go. But what you can also do to use your phone in the meantime is this. Plug your charger into the phone withOUT your battery in. It will tell you "Unable to Charge." When it says this, put the battery in. It might tell you "Invalid Battery" a couple more times, but it did eventually say "Charging Battery" for me. After that, simply turn the phone on and it will return to normal. This is when you drain the battery completely. Once I did that, I did not get the invalid battery error again.

If theres no problem with your phone charging on its original battery before you replace it. the problem lies with the new battery you purchase, just replace it, coz some batteries are due to factory defects.

New phone razr v3i charging issue

Have to phone sent in for warranty and request a "loaner phone"... sounds like the power drain is too high on the device and it needs service or replacement... another sign would be the unit heating up hotter than normal - is that happeneing?

Charging new phone

it wont harm your phone they just recomend 24 hours to make sure the bat is ok and that it gets fully charged but remember to let your bat go totally flat from time to time this will prolong the life of your battery as it does them no good just keep topping it up so i sugest to let it go totally flat say once a month this will keep your battery lasting longer between charge hope this helps

Dying battery

first fully discharge the battery then place it in a plastic container and put it on the freezer overnight, just make sure that no moisture will enter on the cointainer. after taking it out on the freezer let stay at room temperature for 5 minutes, then charge it. I always do this with my old batteries and it works well.

Phone is dead wont take charge

You simply need a new battery. Razr batteries are notorious for loosing life and the entire problem is the chargers you are using. You MUST have one with an IC chip that tells it when to stop charging otherwise watch how long you are charging it. Also when you have a new battery let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging this helps a lot.
