MotorolaV3x locks up when accessing camera or camera menu

Hi, dropped my Razr in fresh water. Keys stopped working. Got best local repair shop we could find in Baghdad. They fixed keys & calls are ok but phone locks up if access camera or camera menu & have to take battery out to clear. Is it a software firmware prob or better to buy new phone. No-one here knows how to fix it or what's wrong - pot luck really getting anything fixed in Iraq.

Re: motorolaV3x locks up when accessing camera or camera...

You could try opening the top part of your phone and unplug and replug the camera connector. unscrew and pop open the case. The wire for the camera is the wide one on the left. flip open the lock(brown plastic), take it out, put it back in and flip back the lock.  good luck!

I have a samsung J700 and almost everybutton has stopped working, I would rather not go to the shop I got i from because i need a quick fix that i can do at home

Normally this happens when one or more keys on your phone are stuck are permanently pressed so you can not use any other key as well.
Please check all keys individually specially side volume or camera keys. If any key is stuck, then you should try to release it by pressing it few time.
I have seen same problem on many water damaged phone as well. if your phone happen to be water damage then cell repairing shop is best option.

Hi rraju_roy,

these could be the possible reasons why your keypad is not working :

- some water might have got in.
- sand or dust got in.
- its been dropped hard on the floor.
- humidity made the inner phone wet.

the solution is to take your phone to the mobile phone shop to get it repaired.

Arrows don't work...can't save contacts to SIM

  your arrow keys have problem, so take it to the service center for i ll tell you how to access ur phone without arrow keys.. imagine ur menu is like wat i shown below..

       cal log      phonebook      applications

       browser    messages       files

       calendar   camera           settings

now if u want to access "cal log" press 1 ; "phonebook" press 2; " applns" press 3 ; "messages" press this as in your keypad...

now select contacts by pressing any suitable options...assume if your options are placed like this

create contact
send via
copy to sim

then u can access view by pressing 1, create contact by pressing 2...and copy to sim by pressing it as it is in ur mobile...

good luck

Motorola Razar all keys lock up occcasionally , sometimes taking the battery out then restart fix's it now its locked up all the time The only key that works is the power off and on

Did you drop your phone on the ground or in water? Because if you did it might of damaged the circuitry and you're going to have to get a new phone.

Greetings from New Zealand

Yes, you can recieve calls, becaus the problem is your keypad flex cable - you can send the phone for repair - the cost is around $25usd + shipping.

Check in your local area shops to see if they can fix for you - don't pay more than 40euros.

Key pad suddenly stopped working

On a RAZR, there is a problem in the joint or hinge where the phone opens, and the flex cable that connects the two often comes loose. This can usually be fixed short term by pushing the halves of the phone together firmly, and then opening and closing the phone. Do this while the battery is out.

For a long term fix (or if that doesn't work), you have to take the phone apart. It would be best to take it to a repair shop for this.
Also try simply taking the battery out and popping it back in. This will resolve this issue often.
