Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3c Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Won't charge battery

My phone got wet a month ago, I left it in the sun for a couple of days, I purchased a new battery and it worked for a day. When I tried to charge it, it would say it was unable to charge. Just today I cleaned the connections with alcohol and Q-tip and it took a charge. I turned it on and although I don't have service to it, it appeares to be working great, however, I was curious to see if I tried to charge it again if it would take a charge, and I got the message - unable to charge. Do you think my phone is ruined?

It could be built in condensation or something, try to actually, remove the battery sim card and put the phone inside a sealed bag or jar of whole grain white rice. the rice wil actually absord any left over moisture in the case of the phone. before you try to use it make sure you have no left over rice in it tho. This really works!

I had a similar problem a few months ago. Ready to get major engine work done, got fire, timing was right, getting gas.....
An experienced mechanic asked where the car had been parked and how long. I had parked it in grass, over a wet spot. The battery was dead too. He told me to park it over a warm spot for a few days and try a new battery. Did that, with the hood open, replaced the battery, and it fired right up. Something about being too damp and/or the voltage in the battery was too weak.. All I know is it worked, and I drive it every day and don't park in wet grassy spots.

I was running in the rain and when I tryed to chrage it it didnt

I dropped my at&t phone in the lake a while back, I took the battery off and stuck onthe dash of my vehicle to allow the sun to bake the phone for a day or two. It still works to this day. Do not try to power up wet electronics, that's what burns thtme up. give a good drying before ever trying to charge. After a good drying you might try a new battery if drying fails. Good luck.

Got water damage and wont turn on

I dropped my phone in the toilet and surprisingly it still works. First I took the battery off and dried the phone and battery as much as I could. Then I took my blow dryer and a towel where I folded the towel in half and positioned the phone and the blow dryer under the towel and left it going for about an hour. The next day I took the phone and sat it in the sun until the inside moisture was gone. Then I charged it my phone has been working fine ever since and that was nearly two months ago.

My pantech matrix got wet and won't stay on or make calls.

You can try to let it dry out in the sun for a day or so. Take off the cover, battery, sim card, etc. so water does not stay trapped. Try again in a couple of days. If it still doesn't work, it's not going to.
