Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

The usual button problem!!

I have a motorola v3 and all but the off buttons stopped working yesterday. I tried to clean it and now i have the menu key and numbers 1,2,3 and 4?! I have tried to read up on this (very common) problem and i have also tried to find out what this keypad flex file is but to no avail. Can you give me some advice on where to go or what to do next as i have mounting recieved messages that i don't really wanna lose. Thankyou, Tara xXx

Re: The usual button problem!!

On a RAZR, there is a problem in the joint or hinge where the phone opens, and the flex cable that connects the two often comes loose. This can usually be fixed short term by pushing the halves of the phone together firmly, and then opening and closing the phone. Do this while the battery is out.

For a long term fix (or if that doesn't work), you have to take the phone apart. It would be best to take it to a repair shop for this.

You can access your data through the Motorola Phone Tools, so you should still be able to backup the data you are concerned with.

I can't remember my unlock code on my sms

sometimes it defaults to the manufacturer security code "000000" or "1234"
also try the last 4 digits of your phone number.

Master reset on motorola rzr 2

HI again,
1st let me tell u. U have to give a frequent try to it.
Its a tricky.
1) The two buttons work as menu buttons. One is in the center of directional keys and second is above the directional keys. U hv to press the second menu button above the directional keys.
2) While holding menu button, a message appears "shortcut not allowed for this item". The change of 4-digits slot to 6-digits slot may be after u do it also. At this time, type 000000 (six zero). Anyway, try it holding menu for 3-4 seconds or by holding it for a little long time.

Looking for ur kind feedback. Dont forget to Rate my solution too.
Be sure to post a clarification request after ur problem is solved.

Backlight display not working

Hey Dannes1956,

The Motorola V3m has a light sensor, which is visible just above the right soft key -- the key above the CLR button. This light sensor turns the backlight on when you press a key in the dark and disables the keypad backlight when you are in a well-lit area.

Your phone sounds like it's operating normally. I believe they disabled the option to activate or deactivate that feature.

Hope this helps,

Motorola razr v3 keypad....!!!

This is usually caused by one button being stuck down, and the volume control buttons on the left of the main display, and the voice button on the right of the main display are the usual culprits. Try squeezing them and making sure they move normally. Then power down the phone, pop out the battery, and give it another shot.

Keypad troubleshooting

when I open my phone it seems to be stuck on the right arrow button so it goes to "IM account". I was really confused this morning because even if I click exit, it goes back to the same thing on its own. when I get a chance to press menu, it just whirls around as if I'm pressing the arrow over to choose a category but I'm not.. its weird.. probably the weirdest phone I've ever had
