    Same problem. Screen is blank, but the phone works as usual. I went for Service Center. The quotation is equal to the cost of new phone.

    My Motorola V3 Razr was in its case when it fell from a table, it wasn't a long fall nor did it fall hard. I opened the phone to see if it was alright, but the display was blank and only the keyboard lights up.

    I was charging my phone then the screen went black, but the keypad still lights up and it rings. I can still make phone calls, but I can't see anything.

I had the same black screen problem with my razr phone.
I tried removing the battery, but that did not work. A friend told me to take the battery out for 15 minutes then reinstall it. It fixed my problem. Now my screen went black again. I tried the removing battery for 15 minutes, but this time it did not work. I tried solution 4 above pushing down on the brass battery connection points. I got my screen back but only for a few minutes.. It must be a loose battery connection,but I still don't have a solution.

Mine had the same problem, i checked the battery connection and it turns out one of the four prongs where the battery makes contact with the phone is broken. don't think mine will come back to life :(

Phone still doesn't work.. it's the worst phone ever. i'm not allowed to get a new phone because my dad thinks i f-u-c-k-i-n-g broke it.

What would a disply cost

Posted on Jan 12, 2008

I had the same problem. I took the battery out and pressed "gently" down on the four brass looking battery post next to the sim card where the battery touches. Problem resolved. I think its just a loose connection. It worked for me, hope it works for you. I am thinking two of the post are for the top part of the phone and two are for the bottom part of the phone. I am not an expert, just someone with a lillte common sense.

My lcd display is dim on my sony xdr-ds12ip dab radio, you can see the display faintly and it does search and display the time. Also the backlight is working normally.

The backlight allows you to see the display. The LCD display only allows the backlight to shine through and produce the characters. Try looking at the display from a different angle as the light is polarized.

I turn on my samsung syncmaster710 and it just has a black screen, with a faint (very faint box floating around it. is this a fualty backlight?

The backlight invertor seems to be defective.
Check the main power supply board for bad capacitors (visible damage ) and make sure that the invertor tubes do not light up for a moment when you power up the monitor ( in that case their probably is one or more light tube defective (burnt)) --

Viewsonic vp2000s LCD computer monitor - no image displayed; possible backlight outage.

It is possible that the backlight has quit working. Use a flashlight, held at an angle to the display, to see if there is a faint image visible. If so, then have backlight repaired. Otherwise, try a different input / cable.

Backlight display not working

Hey Dannes1956,

The Motorola V3m has a light sensor, which is visible just above the right soft key -- the key above the CLR button. This light sensor turns the backlight on when you press a key in the dark and disables the keypad backlight when you are in a well-lit area.

Your phone sounds like it's operating normally. I believe they disabled the option to activate or deactivate that feature.

Hope this helps,

Motorola V3 Razr Keyboard will not light up

Are you getting sounds from the dial pad? It should default to momentary lighting, but it can be adjusted for longer time. It sounds faulty, did you purchase a refurb?

Display won't stay visible

If you can see the moving image faintly then it sounds like a problem with the backlight on the screen. Backlights can fail, but usually a cause is an impact of some kind.
