Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Phone will not charge

It will not charge; local dealer said it was an internal fuse. Now I have to wait indefinately for a loaner phone and then wait 4 weeks for warranty work.
Does anyone know how to replace this fuse and where I can find one?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Phone will not charge

It is not as easy as a usual fuse. This involves soldering a fuse onto a tiny circuit board, and would challenge the average home techie.

Why can't I use my mobile in dubai

If you are using your Nokia 6300 with your own SIM card in Dubai, either carrier does not have international support or you didn't pay them the extra charges for international calling.
If you are using a local SIM card from Dubai, your phone must unlock your phone in prior from network restriction. You can unlock your Nokia 6300 safer and easier using unique unlock code. You can get the unique unlock code for your Nokia 6300 from at affordable cost with an easy unlocking guide. Good luck.

Samsung impression has a qwerty slider. one day the screen started to malfunction until it stays blank and nothing on the screen. when slide back and forth, you see a bit of what's in the screen.

The flex cable of your phone is damaged. Send the Phone to Samsung for repair or go to a local repair shop to have the flex cable replaced.

reminder: Samsung does not offer loaner phones or replacement phones.

Hope that'll help you..

Happy Holidays...

Phone is no longer getting reception... no bars for service this happened after only a couple months of having the phone and at first I would have to walk around waiting to receive a signal now there's...

This can be caused by 2 reasons.
  • The phone's internal antenna is broken or jammed. Thus it is preventing the phone for getting reception. In this case contact the dealer for the Fix. I think you surely are under Warrenty ( as you told you have it for just a couple of months ).
  • The phone has no network. It can be caused because the phone's network service is being blocked or being hampered. For this you need to contact the service provider.
Sir, I think now you can understand the ways to get past this problem.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

My phone does not start because there was a problem with software updating which got interrupted during software updation. i have tried removing battery n all but does not work

Unfortunately, you'll have to take it to the provider of your service and have them re-install the update. I had to do that too... but be aware that they MAY have to send it out for service... many providers will charge you a service fee and also a service fee to have a loaner phone available to you as well... mine charged me $25 for the sending it out service and $25 for the loaner phone as it would take about 3 weeks to get out there, fixed, and sent back... they MAY be able to do it right on the spot there. Every provider is different but I thought you should know that there might be a fee and what options you may have available to you.

I hope this helps and please remember to rate my help! I would greatly appreciate it!

My phone want charge. I think my charge or phone is broke.

i suggest going down to a cell phone store and picking up a new charger and hope that solves the problem, if not then take it back to the place where you got the phone from and send it back to your service provider for repairs. if your on a plan then request a loaner phone until your phone is returned.

Water damaged,not charging--nokia1110 my nokia1110 was water damaged.still after that also somehow it was working bit properly.. then LOCAL MODE msg came in and went away after a while. Later when battery...

Guest - you phone needs to be taken to a professional repair store and have the local mode remove...that is a testing mode when unlocking or service the main-board.

akemsl11 - the fuse could be blown on the board for the charging....either buy a new mobile or take it to a repair store close to you to have them service the phone for you.

arkster101 - take the phone to a mobile repair tech and have them service the charging port and fuse on the main- board but i think the board is gone so you should buy a new mobile.

Camera won't work after a couple of days of mod

I can't comment on whether or not the hack is at fault here, but I'm sure it didn't help the situation. The iPhone's camera has had some issues with failures and image distortion. If possible, make an appointment at the local Apple store's Genius Bar and have them triage it. Depending on how long you've had the phone (30 days or more) they'll probably offer you a loaner phone and send your phone in for a camera replacement. And BTW, the loaner phone comes with a $30 charge on your credit card. Yes, a credit card is required. If you ask nicely, that Genius might waive the fee, but you still have to put a credit card on file.
