Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

On again, off again

When I got the phone I put my sim-card and battery in and started charging it. After a while I took it off the charger and turned on the phone. About thirty seconds after the phone turned on it turned right back off again. I hit the on button again and the same thing happened. I then just set it down and it started turning itself on and off. This went on for about 20 mins until it finally stopped and was on and normal. It stayed normal for about 30-40 mins and then started turning itself on and off again.

Re: on again, off again

Sounds to me like a bad battery. Go to a generic cell phone shop and ask them to put in a replacement battery to see if that fixes the problem. If it works fine, then just buy the battery for 30 or so bucks. If not, then at least you know its not the battery and you arent out any cash.

Hello, Tammy, according to your explanation it looks like your device started problem after one week of charging error, if charging pin is same of your device and your brother there is no problem charging with it, for the charging error it must be happened when you didn't connect charger properly. try your device with another battery if possible, for the switching on and off it sounds me software issue, try to connect your device to pc suite and update firmware your problem will be solved. for further help post comments.

I had the same problem!! This might help: 1. Take out the battery, SIM card, and memory card (if applicable). 2. Let the phone sit in the sun for a couple of days. 3. Put the SIM card back in the phone and plug the phone charger into the phone. 4. When prompted, insert the battery into the phone 5. When battery is fully charged, remove the charger and depress the call button simultaneously.

I tired this and the phone is now working!!! Also, I do not seem to have lost any of the features!

Good Luck!!!

My LG Vu says Emergency download after I dropped it in water. And it won't do anything but go to that screen fell into the toilet and when i tried turning it on i saays Emergency Download

Take out the battery....then put it back in. Do not try to turn on the phone yet. Next plug the phone up to charge. Wait until the charging screen appears and then power the phone. Worked for me.....good luck.
