Question about Motorola Cell Phones

My motorola droid IHDP56KC1 front screen will not work and is calling people on its own, is this a malware issue or hardware?

The apps were all running, so I deleted the apps, when I powered the phone down and then restarted the phone the apps were still on the phone, now the front screen is possessed and acts like someone else is controlling it, calling people on its own and opening things on its own. Could this be a malware issue or is it hardware related

I suggest to reset your device to its factory defaults, for you to check what is really happening.
How-To: Hard Reset your Motorola Droid To perform a hard reset on your Motorola Droid, perform the following steps.




  1. Turn off the Droid. If you are unable to turn off the Droid, remove the battery for 10 seconds, then replace it.
  2. Open the physical keyboard and press the X key while pressing and holding the Power Button. The device will turn on, keep holding these two buttons until a yellow triangle appears.
  3. Press the Volume Up and then the Camera button at the same time to get a menu to come up. You may have to press them more then once.
  4. You have now entered Recovery Mode.
  5. Use the Directional Pad on the Physical Keyboard to select theFormat option.

This should perform a factory reset of your device. You will of course lose all data. Please exercise caution before doing this without a backup.

* Note: Contacts, etc. should be backed up to the cloud, so you should be safe with your address book.

SOURCE: iPhone camera shutter won't open! - 3Gs

I have had the same problem. I backed up all photos/videos from the phone and then deleted them, then rebooted the phone (off/on). The camera functioned after that. Then I restored the photos to the phone.

You might want to try a hard reset on the phone, it should put your phone back to normal if its a software issue, if its a hardware issue you might have to take the phone apart or send it in for repairs or warranty return.

You can hard reset your Motorola Droid if you want clear all of the data off of the device and start fresh. Here’s how it’s done.

1. Turn the Droid off. If it won’t turn off, take the battery out then place it back in.
2. Open the keyboard and press the X key while pressing and holding Power. The device will power on. Keep holding the buttons down until a yellow triangle appers.
3. Press the Camera and Volume Up buttons at the same time to get to the menu. (I had to press them several times).
4. Use the direction pad to the right of the keyboard to select the Format option.

How to get 7 screens on Motorola Droid.


You'll want to get the application called "Helix Launcher" from the Apps Market. Once you have that, go into the menu button ( noted by four horizontal slashes) on your Droid (sitting between the back button and the home button) and go into 'configure". You'll then see a list of options for the Helix. You want to do the first one at the top. Keep in mind you can have 1-7 windows but if you have your Droid set up with the apps of your choice, they will be taken off the home screen if you increase or decrease the amount of windows you have.

Set to the quantity you want and there you go.

Hi Anonymous,

To block calls you can download a App from the Google Play Store that enables the feature on your device or contact your carrier to add restriction on your service for outgoing/incoming calls.

My motorola droid IHDP56KC1 front screen will not work and is calling people on its own, is this a malware issue or hardware?


Could be just moisture on the screen or a non Motorola Charger being plugged in. It could be a damaged screen or malware as well but is more likely one of the first two items.

My droid gors to start up screen every 3 minutes


Try to do a firmware restore to make sure your system is 100% intact.Ifit still doesn't work, there may be an issue with your logic board.Ifyou're not covered under warranty there are Droid Repair guides that show how to open a droid.Watchout for the ribbon cables,those tear easily. Replacement parts areusually available on Ebay.There are third party services that can do itfor you Droid Repair.
