Razr display goes dark


I got a new razr v3a & the display turns off. I turned off the battery power save feature & set all the settings so that it would always be on. It still goes dark. Is there a way to fix this?

Re: razr display goes dark

I have just got that and I think it happened during the night they changed the time back to winter time. It might be a bug. Everything goes dark but the little front display LCD still shows data.

Anyway, don't reset it by removing the battery. II did five times and it didn't clear the problem. Instead turned it of using the red OFF button. Wait for 10 sec and turn it on using the same button. Everything came on as normal.

Yes i think that in the phone you go to option menu in menu settings in setting displays is the option there you have the option to either turn off the display or choose the interval like 1 minute or 2 minute.

Check with your carrier for service/repair options, regardless if you have insurance or not.

Your problem sounds like an average hardware/software issue that can be assisted with a Tech Representative of your carrier.

Sorry I cannot be of any more assistance. Thank you.

Cant send pics with my motorola v3a

Hi you will need to set up GPRS and MMS settings on your phone. If your phone already connects to wap internet then all you need is to adjust MMS setting (found in messaging section / mms settings). Speak to your network operator as they should be able to send setting over the air and when you receive just save and it is done. If after this it still does not work ask your provider to make sure your provisioned for GPRS as some older accounts may not have it enabled. Being its a Motorola I recommend getting over the air settings...its easier.
Found this on Motorola site...
Your model is not listed but if you change the sites region to yours, as I expect your not in UK, you should find it under mobile/support/settings mms,gprs. Hope that helps?

Razor V3a exterior screen

Sounds like the phone isn't detecting that it has been closed. I have had a reconditioned v3a and to be honest, there was no difference between it and my old one. It looked brand new, and acted brand new. In fact, it even had a 0:00 call timer on it. I'd say let them replace it.

Key pad light

Sounds like you have the "Battery Save" feature set to "ON". Go into settings and set the "Battery Save" feature to OFF.

Good luck.

My new razr phone

to send ringtones using multi-media message, you need to check with your carrier/srvice provider if they support this feature on your phone. if you are trying to send using bluetooth, power off your phone and take out the battery for few seconds put the battery back in, power on and try sending. if does not work, reset the phone to its original manufacturer setting. Go to

If the buzzing is coming from the keyboard then it's a known problem/feature. Got the same on mine when the keypad is lit up, so rag Motorola, who said sorry, known feature with that model.
