Screen on Razr

I have a Razr and broke the exterior screen. I have a new screen and I have the the four torx bolts and cover removed. I have removed the glass but I cannot get the silver border removed. I have stuck a screw driver in the little slot but cannot get the border to move. I currently have a blank screen on my interior screen now. Can I also fix that?

I had a blank screen each time I switched on but the phone works OK. This works for me....Switch the phone off.. Plug in the charger with the flip closed... If fully charged when you flip open , the screen will light up with " charge compete" LEAVE the charger plugged in and switch on the phone. now the screen will go normal...NOW remove the charger and will stay OK Keep it switched on and charge normally. Works for me..

You will need a hot air soldering/desoldering gun for the work. Not possible. Only a trained technician can do it.

Change fog light n lense

Remove the plastic screen surrounding the fog light (held on by 3 Torx screws). Elevate the front of the car and remove the plastic tray under the front bumper(held on by 5-6 eight mm headed sheet metal screws).
Unplug the wire to the lamp and remove the four screws holding the fog lamp on.(4 Torx screws). You can't get a screwdriver into this tight space, so you'll need a torx bit and a 1/4" drive ratchet to turn it.
It is a tight work area and you'll have to take your time and just "worry" those screws out with the Torx bit..
Remove the lamp unit and replace it with the new one. reinstall four screws. Plug wire into the new lamp. Then reinstall the plastic splash tray under the bumper and the wire grill around the light. Done!

How to by pass heater core in a 2001 chysler 300m

Where do you live, Death Valley?
I KNOW it gets cold even there!!
Anyway, it is a fairly straight forward fix, although you might be a contortionist to get at the hoses. They are RIGHT in back, in the center of the firewall. I did this on my 96 Sebring and had plenty of cuts and bruises to remember it by.
The EASY way though, and it takes more time, is to remove the rear valance that covers the wiper motors.
1. with the hood closed, remove the wiper assys.
2. Open the hood, and with a male Torx socket, remove the louvered beauty cover (black). BAG all bolts and make the bags ALWAYS.
3. remove the steel valance with four bolts on the left, and four on the right. AND remove the single bolt with a large fender washer from the driver's side. Study them and you'll quickly see what I see.
4. The two core hoses are almost dead center of the firewall.
5. Do your thing with the hoses (I take it the core leaks and you're broke like me, so you loop out the hoses)
6. Install in reverse of disassy.
7. GO!

How do you remove the battery from a 1992 corvette

Access is by removal of the exterior side panel. There are two 10mm bolts on top and bottom of the panel, the top needs to be removed, the bottom just loosened. There are 3 Torx screws inside the wheel well, difficult to remove with the tire in place unless you turn the steering to a stop, or use a Torx bit in a wrench. Bolt securing the battery on its base facing the driver seat needs to be removed.

I have a Motorola Razr V3. Very recently the exterior and main screen went black. The phone itself still works (I can still call people and receive calls) but I can not see anything on the screens. Do you...


The reason your phone interior and exterior screen went black is because there is a problem with the flex of the phone.

The flex is the mechanism like a ribbon that connects the screen to the panel of the phone.

All you have to do is to replace the flex of the phone.

To replace it on your own, the process to do this are as following;
  1. Get the appropriate screwdriver (Torx 5 screwdriver).
  2. Remove the four rubber stoppers surrounding the screen to reveal four screws. Remove these screws.
  3. You can now remove the front cover. To do this, use a credit card to lever the cover up. The cover clips on and the levering motion will unclip it. Start at the top, then unclip the cover at the bottom, then both sides.
  4. Now detach the camera from the phone. Simply pull the ribbon away from the phone to release it.
  5. Now unplug the other ribbon. The ribbon attaches like a plug and socket. Simply lift it up to unplug it.
  6. The ribbon you just unplugged is the flex of the phone, so you have to unscrew the lower part of the phone to remove it completely.
  7. To open the lower part, you have to open the back cover and remove the battery,
  8. Unscrew the screws you see, than split it open with a credit card or the tip of your finger, apply a little force to open it.
  9. Then unscrew the board, you will see where the other end of the ribbon is connected on the board, then you can remove it and fix a new one.
  10. Reverse the process to reassemble the phone together.
Take care

My Razor cell phone can call out and receive calls, but the screen is scrambled. Is there a way to unscramble the screen so I can see my phone book, and receive texts from my sons in college?

Hmm... did you drop this in water, or crack the screen? In both cases, you will need a new screen. Remove the little hole covers on the screen. Typically they are located at the corners of the screen. Take a Torx T5 or T6 screwdriver, and start unscrewing till you get to the screen. There, check the ribbon connecting it. If it is loose plug it in more. If that doesn't help, get a new screen from eBay.

Screen went blank

There is something you can try. Using a Torx 6 driver, remove the two screws located beneath the battery. Gently pry the plastic cover loose. There will be a flex cable connecting it to the other portion of the phone. Gently disconnect it. Using 99.5% isopropyl alcohol and a soft bristled brush clean the connectors on both the cable and the circuit board. Reseat the connector and reassemble the phone. If this does not work the flex cable or LCD may need to be replaced.

Front screen only shows the time

I have had a simular problem with mine and just fixed it. My phone was doing simular things, but it would also sometimes not show the outside display, or half would be upsite down. Also occasionally when I opened the phone I only saw a white screen. **FIX** There is a small ribbon cable that comes from the top half (w/ the screen) and connects into the circuit board in the bottom half (under battery). It came loose which caused all of my problems. If you clean that connection and put the phone back together it should be good as new.

Repairing a razr

you simply need a replacement screen, or do as I have and redneck mod one. If you get the screen take off the faceplate, (reply with email address for guide), remove the cracked screen, and glue on the new one. (WARNING, NEVER PRY OFF THE CRACKED SCREEN ON TOP OF THE LCD SCREEN) putting pressure on this could completely damage your phone. The other way is to again remove the face plate and cracked screen. then find a hard plastic or plexiglass, cit it out to size and there you go. you can even paint the edges black on the bottom side of the screen and very few will know the difference if you do this correctly.
