Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Time changing on phone

I have a new Razr V3 that I fully charged before using, inserted my sim card and set everything. The next morning the time and date were off by a a day and 1 and 1/2 hours. I reset the time and made sure the auto update was off and about 3 hours later when opening the phone was 6 hours off. It also powered all the way down while in my pocket twice and had to be restarted. I took out the battery and sim and cleaned the contacts. Have been told it might be internal hardware problem, like the circuit board. Eeverything else seems to be fine. Any ideas.

Re: Time changing on phone

Yes it is an internal issue with the phone you can take it back to the carrier and have them exchange it for you or have them reflash the phones' firmware on the phone.

Insert SIM card displayed and SIM card i in

FOR INSERT SIM:Try with another sim card, clean the sim connector of your phone, reset you phone to Factory Setting (default) using 12345. If you can open it, clean the mobile thoroughly using iPhone solution. This problem is caused by Firmware problem and Hardware problem as well.
New Software Reinstall in the Phone.

Motorola Razr V3 shuts down during Hello Moto screen. We can't get to any menus.

Does it do this when it's connected to a charger?
Is the battery fully charged up?

Try starting it up with no SIM card. It should boot to "emergency use" screen. If so, then your SIM is bad and you need a new one from your carrier

RAZR V3 - New battery w/full charge drains in 1hr of standby

take out a battery and check if there is any red paper dots on the back of the phone. If you do have a dot that is at least partially red, that means that your phone got wet and it can not be fixed.

Razr V3i charging problem

Hi V3 is very fragile and if you use the incompatible accessories, you can ruin their ports easily. One weak point of V3 Phone is the SIM card Port is not an opening flap like other GSM phone but using pin and spring Port style which is mean you have to push your SIM card in and use the SIM Card edge to push the pin down in order to contact with SIM metal area interface. But by pushing force is varied from users so too strong and too hurry will damage the pin. If one of the pins is damaged, when you slide the SIM card in, the contact is missing of one or two pins due to damaging of the pin cause the error message "Insert SIM". In this case, only way is needed to replace the SIM Board underneath. If you can do it yourself, please follow the instruction pictures below. If you are not sure and never do this before, I suggest you send the unit to Motorola Repair Center. Your SIM Card Board and charging port will need to be replaced. This is a Full Motorola V3 Officially Service Manual and even the Motorola Repair Center also has this one. so copy this link and print it out. Around hundreds plus pages but can be your Guide which you cannot find anywhere else. I gave it to you free but I have purchased it before. Hope that you can get it fix. Other solution is looking V3 parts on sale a lot on Ebay and use them to replace part to your phone will be cheaper if your phone is no longer under warranty. If it is still under cover then send the unit to them and don't spend time and money to do it yourself. But if it is out of warranty and want to avoid costly repair then use the method in the manual I provided you and you will be able to get your phone fix. Good Luck
