Razr v3t wont stay on

Razr is about 4 months old. one day it made a few chirping sounds and shut off. Now it will power up but wont stay for more than 30 seconds or so. Makes a few chirps and shuts down. I know its not the battery as i have a spare razr and the battery works fine in it. I took the memory chip out and tried it that way with the same results. I think a few drops of water from a leaking cieling landed on it but nothing much. No red dot. Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: razr v3t wont stay on

If you have access to the Motorola Phone Tools software, I would update your phone through it first to make sure you have the most up to date firmware.

The next part may be tricky with the limited amount of time before the phone turns off, but I would try to reset the phone through the settings menu. Make sure you backup your data before doing this, as it will wipe the data from your phone.

This can often be caused by a bad SIM card as well. Most phone carriers will replace your SIM for free. Maybe try popping in a buddies SIM card and see if the results change.

My screen is blacked out on my razr v3t gsm!

You cannot access the screen once htis happens. You need to contact your phone company and tell them what is going on so you can get a replacement phone because this is a matter of the wires having been split in your screen. I wish you the best of luck!

Holding a charge

Their website says only 6 hours of talk time for that battery. Could be that's all your gonna get from it. Every phone I've ever owned has needed to be recharged every other day and sooner if it's used more.

Phone screen is black

With the phone off, hold * and # keys and then press power button:

- If your phone screen still dont show anything then the backlight or whole screen is broken and you would need to replace or make a technician to replace the screen.
- If your phone shows a boot screen with serial numbers on it, then you would need to re-flash or reload the phone firmware to recover your phone. For that you may need some special software, a PC and your phone's USB cable. You can find tutorials and guides over the web.

To get out the bootloader screen you need to take out the battery and the re-flash procedure delete all your data so I recomend you to download it with your phones PC software.

Good Luck...
