Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Phone works but display is black....

I've seen this problem posted before, but I need clarity. I turned off my phone then after turning it back on, the buttons light up, I can make/receive calls, but my display is totally black (I did not drop it.) Sreeki suggested to someone else with this problem "change the display strip." I have no idea what this entails. Can you purchase a display strip? Can you give me more details on where to purchase and how to install? I've called a repair place and they said it would be approx. $75+ to fix. Otherwise, I've been on ebay searching for a new one at a cost of around $80-$100. Any suggestions would be most helpful. Thanks.

    Yes, it is the flex cable for sure. I removed the battery and slightly moved the top corner. When I turned my phone on, the display lit, but I did not have my Sim in all the way. After turning it off and turning it back on, it went back to black. How difficult is it to replace the cable? Do you have any instructions? Thanks!

    Hey, I fixed it! I put a paper clip thru the hinge hole and it works now. Guess I only need to order a new hinge! Thanks!

Firstly, what is a display strip? the term is a FLEX Cable - these cost about $15-25 for the part, but you need to install it The installation at our shop with the part is $40 + shipping. We can fix and return the phone same day, we have lots of flex cables in stock for the v3.

This is a common problem - if you buy one on ebay for $80-100 you are risking buying a refurbished unit, and they usually have many problems - be careful

I am using cordless panasonic phone Model KX-TGA351BX. The problem I am facing now when call is received , so after few second appear a word on screen " BOOST" and call is disconnected . please help me...


According to the users manual this is what the boost function does.

Handset clarity booster
This feature can improve sound clarity
when the handset is used in an area
where there may be interference. During
an outside call, this feature is turned on
automatically when necessary.
When this feature is turned on, BOOST is displayed.

This should not cause your call to drop. I would suggest replacing the battery in the handset.

The manual for this phone doesn't say you can turn the answering machine on remotely, but every one I've ever seen can do so. Most of them say call your number and let the phone ring...and ring...and ring, and eventually the answering machine will turn on. Ten rings is what I've seen most often. I guess the manufacturers figure most callers will hang up fairly soon if the machine doesn't answer, so they pick a large number. Try it on your phone; worst that can happen is it won't work.

Our new 6.0 Caller ID phones have an echo. Can you suggest a remedy? John Chalk johnchalk@hotmail.com


as per jonniewalker from one of his posts:

"it may be due to interference from electronics devices around you since its a cordless phone ,or your phone is not getting a complete connection, could be one cause,Please try these solutions when you experience echo sound :

- turn the volume down

- turn the "clarity booster" function on the phone

Follow these steps to turn on clarity booster

1) Press menu/del during talk time (while phone is in use).

2) Press ^/vol or vol/v to move the pointer to Clarity Boost, and then select Boost On and "B" appears on the display. To turn Off the Clarity Booster, repeat above step again. check the owners manual for a full description for your model of phone
*Please note: clarity booster turns off automatically at the end of each call.

- make sure the Echo Canceller Circuit (ECC) has been set properly

*The phone should have Echo Canceller Circuit (ECC) built in.

*This means the circuit will study the Voice Level & reduce/cut the echo automatically.

Follow these steps to set the ECC properly

1. Unplug the battery from the handset for a few seconds.

2. Re-plug the battery back into the handset.

3. Make a phone call & at the initial stage speak loudly into the mic. Please note: The ECC will learn at the initial stage only, so after these steps are followed, the ECC will start working properly.or
just a simple pwr cycle ( turning the phone off) can give you a fresh registratoin, this can improve the quality of the call. hope this helps pls do let me know"
