Question about Motorola Mobility MOTORIZR Z3 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Won t charge

The motorola z3 I bought won t charge. I plug it in and it seems to start to cycle by the screen turning white, then the bottom nav buttons light up, the screen displays charging phone for a few seconds and then shuts down. When I try charging it on the computer it will charge for a few seconds then kick out and the computer displays something about no drivers downloaded for this device. Is this just a driver problem that I need to download onto my computer somewhere? Why won t it charge from the wall then?

Download Motorola Phone tools and get a new battery for your phone.
The batteries go bad about once a year, sometimes longer.

RIZR Z3 Showing white screen and shutting on/off


You should contact the people or person from whom you obtained the phone if still in warranty. As the phone might be dead, at which you cannot do anything. Hope I Helped!

Motorola Z3 Rizr won't turn on


when you plug in the charger cable to your phone, make sure that you allow it to charge at least 2 hours, if your phone shuts off immediately after this amount of time, you likely need a new battery, they will wear out after a certain number of recharge cycles.. contact your motorola distributer or motorola website to purchase a replacement. Note do not accept "Non-Motorola Batteries or chargers as these are not guaranteed to provide the proper current necessary to safely recharge your battery, if you notice the battery getting Hot, then disconnect the charger immediately and let it cool, before removing and disposing. Remember it is normal for the battery to be warm to touch while charging or the phone itself is in use. but if it gets hot to the touch this is not normal, and the battery needs replaced..

Battery charging problem


Seems like it may be your wall charger.
I would inspect your connectors (both charger & phone) as well though (for dirt or debris).
I would also suggest using Motorola's wall chargers, the products seem to charge best with them rather than the after-market knock-offs which also seem to damage the phones connectors on some models.

MOTOROLA Z3 PROBLEM


I've got the same problem!
Cracked my screen and when I tried to replace it with one I bought off eBay I got nothing but a white screen when I turned it on! Returned that screen and got another one from a different seller and still get the white screen. So I'm thinking its not the LCD screen, unless I just have bad luck. The keypad is also new, but now I'm gonna try to replace the ear piece flex cable set, because I can't figure out what else could be wrong with it. The phone powers on and operates as normal calls (incoming/outgoing with texts); I can even hear out of the ear piece.

So... Anybody have any ideas? anybody? breaker breaker...haha

Charging problem?


your firmware needs reflashing, take the phone to any mobile service center and have them do it for you.

White screen


I have the same problem with my z3. I left my phone on the table, and all of a sudden, my normal screen was replaced by a flashing white screen. I called T-Mobile, and they had me try to reset the phone. You can do this by going to settings, then Master Reset. This will restore the original settings, and the rep said that sometimes this helps. Master Clear is the next step, which wipes everything off the phone. Nothing has worked for my phone, so I have to call Motorola today to try and get a new one. Good luck with your phone.
