Re: dropped it into sink

Was there water in the sink at the time?
if so check the connections on the base if there is green corrosion on it the the damage is done you will have to find someone who will repair water damaged phones.
If no water and just the drop that caused the prob then try removing the battery while the phone is still turned on this may shock it back

My phone was dropped down by my kid. now, i can receive calls, dial calls but don't have display.

HI Ahmad Wagar I think you have a you screen. Once your phone's LCD screen is crack it will go black and not come on. Sometime if you pull out the battery the screen may come back on. Now depending on your you may be able to contact the manufacturer to see if they have a repair center that will replace your screen for a fee. You can replace the screen yourself. You will need to buy the replacement glass for your phone.

The screen unseen: the phone is working, but I don't see. The screen became black. Consequently, I only receive phone call. I cannot call because I do not see. I cannot read my sms.

Your display board is damaged.You may need to replace it.But it is costly.Any way give it to service center and ask about the cost of repairing or replacing.
Meanwhile,you can use your phone to receive and make calls only.
To make a call
1.Press red button (to make sure you are on stand by ) or restart your phone.
2.dial the number you need to call.
3.Press the call button.

My Razr will only accept calls, voice dial and voice record keep looping.

Your phone is water damaged. It may help to let it dry out further, but most likely it is beyond help. You could sell it for parts on eBay. People will buy water damaged phones on there too.

Cell's Display is Blank

It's possible that the flex cable that connects the display to the main board has become loose or disconnected. This could easily have happened if the phone was dropped.

The worst possible scenario would be a damaged LCD display due to being dropped.

Unless you feel comfortable with taking the phone apart, you will need to take it to be serviced.

You may also wish to find out whether its cheaper to replace the phone rather than paying to have it fixed.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

My inside display doesn't work

I would order a new phone under warrantee. Go to a motorola shop and they will switch your contacts from one phone to the new phone once received. I just had to do that. It only took two days to receive the phone. Not too bad. Let me know how it goes.

Can't read screen

try to dismantle your unit starting from the bottom...usually loose flex ribbon connectors occur when clamshell phones are a foam onto the connector then assemble.
