Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3m Cellular Phone

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

I replaced a cracked LCD screen in my RAZR V3M and now the screens both stay on when the lid is closed. Everything works normally except even when the flip is closed the outside LCD displays the verizon logo as though it were open. This drains the battery rather quickly. I've been unable to find the switch/mechanism that lets the phone know when the lid is closed. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

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

    when you open your screen there is a magnet that is glued right above the LCD screen on the top right. its small and silver. The magnet interacts with a flex cable that sticks out of the key pad that is located above the battery on the left.

    here is the cable im talking about in the blue box

2007 razr v3m can make calls but display screen


Hi,

problem the solved.What makes the screen of a phone white is when the screen of the phone is damaged or the flex of the phone has cut.

The flex of the phone is attached to the keypad of the phone. They are joint together.

The flex of the phone can get weak due to opening and closing the phone all the time.It might be the flex is weak and it needs to be replaced.

If when replaced and still no display, then it's definitely going to be the screen of the phone that will need to be replaced.

Would advice to prevent more damage on the phone, you can give it to a mobile repairer to check it for you if you can not.

Take care.

When I turn the motorola razor on, the screen stays dark


That problem is usually caused by the flex cable being ripped or snagged in the razor. But it can also be caused by the LCD messing up. So if you have a cellular repair store near you just take it in and they can fix it or you could file an insurance claim through your wireless provider to have the phone replaced.

Nokia 5310


It sounds like the LCD screen is dead. If you are still under warranty, get it replaced.

If not, you can buy a replacement 5310 LCD and replace it yourself.

A new 5310 display costs about 20 dollars from ebay.
I wrote a detailed guide to help you put in the new Nokia 5310 LCD screen.

Check it out at the following link for the guide and links to buy the LCD
