I just replaced the screen in my Razr and now the outer scrren doens't want to work. It lights up and everything but it doesn't show the time/ date etc. The inner screen works fine. Its like the phone thinks its always open. Please help.
There's a tiny magnet in the top of the flip, near the hinge.. try taking a small magnet and hold it over the keypad near the hinge, and see if it doesn't think it's closed, if that magnet didn't get put back in the flip, then the phone won't know it's closed.

This is a known problem for Razr V3. I had a phone like it with the same problem four years ago... I bought another brand and put the V3 away..three years later the phone works perfectly but I have not used it since three years..only turned it on to see if the screen will come on. Get the phone repaired or buy a new one. this is common on a RAZR
Remove the battery and SIM card, wait about 5 minutes and re-insert everything. If the screen shows up, well and good. If not, there is a problem with the display and you will need to get the device serviced.
This worked for me - I had to do it several times because I never figured out whether to start with the phone "off" or "on".
Press # * and the "end call (red)" buttons simultaneously and hold for several sections. Then power phone off and back on. I read this was the equivalent of "safe mode" booting for a RAZR. My phone has performed flawlessly since I did this on the 6th of February!
