LG vx8350r hinge is broken on right side. Should I look for repair parts or a replacement phone? My wife like a simple phone and would keep this model if I can get it fixed


My VX8350 broke on the right side too. Actually it cracked and the pieces, 2 if I remember correctly, kind of were just hanging there (in other words I did not loose any pieces of plastic). I did a very careful repair and it has held now for about 1.5 years with no problems and I've even dropped the phone about 4 times or more since the repair.

I used the CA glue, (cyanoacrylate glue or some know it as instant glue). But be careful so you do not glue your hands to the phone. Use VERY LITTLE glue cause it WILL wick into places you do not want it to go. Lastly, you have to index the metal piece in the hinge (use a hefty pair of tweezers) before gluing so the spring with work correctly and hold the phone either open or closed. If you error on the indexing, try to error on the side which will keep your phone tightly closed when closed and just barely short of fully open when open. That way you won't be catching the closed phone on things with it hanging partially open. It doesn' t cause any problems being just a tiny bit short of fully open.

So, open the phone, carefully tilt the two halves to expose the metal hinge, index the hinge, carefully rotate the two halves back to their proper position and carefully test the opening and closing action. If it's good, or good enough, then put the chunk(s) that broke loose back into position and while holding everything in place put a TINY bit of CA on one of the cracks. This should setup very quickly (hence the name instant glue) and if you can still remove your finger from the phone, do so, and put a tiny bit of CA on any other areas or other cracks where the glue did not wick to. Remember to use very little glue for this or you'll be sorry and your phone won't work. If you did this properly, your phone will now open and close like it did before...or very close to it. Good luck.

"Bolt" replacement on Razor Phone


Be very carefull with the phone. The main cable runs through that left side.

Look on Ebay for a Left hinge pin for the V3. Also knows as the left knuckle.

Make sure you look for the V3. Not Razr.

If your speaker goes out, or you lose display before you get the Knuckle, you need to get a keypad flex also.

If not, get the Knuckle, and it just slides in. MAKE SURE before you pop it in that there are no pieces of the old one in there and that you don't pinch that cable.

I can fix it for you if you send it to our business, but if you're careful, you shouldn't have a problem.

Battery suddenly looses charge?


The V3 takes a bit of time to recognise the charge left in the battery so if you had left it a while it would probably then have gone down to the actual charge level before you turned it off. If this is not the case then you probably need a need a new battery.

The outer screen will permanently stay as the Moto logo when your phone is open and this cannot be changed (maybe with hacked firmware...).
When your phone is closed then it is the same picture as your main phone background and will change at the same time as it, also this cannot be changed independently (but also maybe with hacked firmware...)

Hope this helps

Tries To Come on, But Screen Will NOT Light Up!


hi there.
the problem your having is caused by a ribbon that connects the screen and the mainboard in the phone.
the ribbon seems to have either come loose or detached.other than that being a problem it will almost certainly be a screen issue where the lcd has burnt out.
but in my professional opinion it will almost certainly be a ribbon issue

Motorola razr v3: hinge on left side fell out


I know what you r talking about because the hinge on my phone is loos, it didn't fall off yet. I have the blue razr but it's with t-mobile and it's unlocked so they wont fix it. T-Mobile is very helpful but u should call moterola and they will fix it 4 u. And if they give u a hard time talk to the manager.
