There are AA batteries in the machine and it takes either 2 or 3. You can replace them when the machine is on as that will not harm the machine or you. The batteries should be replaced every one - two years. Replacing them when the machine is turned on will allow the current memory to remain intact.

It keeps saying memory lost

If the memory battery (soldered to the board inside) is bad, you will lose all memory when UNPLUGGED. Otherwise leave plugged in when turned off.

I erased the phone book on my Razor v3xx phone

Warning: Solution may not make your day better.

There are two places a phone can store infomation. Internal built in memory or an external memory card ( SD card ect.)

If the phone stored them in the internal memory and they have been erased then you have just lost your contact information

If the information was stored on the memory card you can if lucky salvage it using a memory card data recovery program.
-- If your phone has a memory card and you have a card reader on your PC, remove it from the phone place in the card reader and use the following software provided in the link to try and recover lost data.

Hope this helps, sorry you lost your phonebook info. Furture tips make a backup (onto the Pc or even write it all down) I have learned this the hardway myself on my Palm Treo.

When it turns on do the lights blink and go out on the first key touched? If so the battery hilder is probably corroded. Clean the contacts with sand paper. When this is solved you can start storing again. The data is lost and can't be retrieved.
