Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3m Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Razr V3m lcd will not light up.

I dropped my phone the other day and one of the corner pieces (the left side of the flip hinge) cracked off exposing a thin piece of tape-like technology. I can still make calls but no picture will show on either lcd. I am interested in fixing it myself because I believe Verizon would say it was my fault and charge me (it was my fault). Any idea which part I would need to buy??

"Bolt" replacement on Razor Phone

Be very carefull with the phone. The main cable runs through that left side.

Look on Ebay for a Left hinge pin for the V3. Also knows as the left knuckle.

Make sure you look for the V3. Not Razr.

If your speaker goes out, or you lose display before you get the Knuckle, you need to get a keypad flex also.

If not, get the Knuckle, and it just slides in. MAKE SURE before you pop it in that there are no pieces of the old one in there and that you don't pinch that cable.

I can fix it for you if you send it to our business, but if you're careful, you shouldn't have a problem.

Tries To Come on, But Screen Will NOT Light Up!

hi there.
the problem your having is caused by a ribbon that connects the screen and the mainboard in the phone.
the ribbon seems to have either come loose or detached.other than that being a problem it will almost certainly be a screen issue where the lcd has burnt out.
but in my professional opinion it will almost certainly be a ribbon issue

RAZR V3M thinks it's always open - Screen will not turn off

in the top right corner you are suppose to have a little circular magnet that changes the screen when the phone is open or closed. I just changed my housing yesterday and took the magnet out and put it in my new housing but for some reason i have the same problem as you. so maybe you lost the magnet when you replaced the lcd and if that is the case then you are screwed. try have Motorola fix it, don't tell them you replaced the lcd
