Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
My phone got wet. I took it apart and dried everything. The one problem I have is that the phone always thinks it is open. I took it apart again to locate the switch and see if I could repair it, but I can't find it.
Is it in the hinge? I saw some contacts on the left hinge, but I don't see how a connection is made or not made to let the phone know it is open. When I removed the piece where you could attach a carrying strap, I noticed a contact on that piece connected to a gold pin going into the spring housing. Inside the lid I noticed a gold pin coming out the other side of the spring housing with a contact that runs from that pin to a foam material wrapped in what seems to be metal wire. The foam piece seems to mate to a contact on the lead for the camera. This actually looks like some sort of ground.
I also looked for some sort of magnetic switch, but nothing looked right.
Any info is appreciated, but I would really like to know how this phone knows when the lid is closed?
