Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Motorola V3 RAZR won't charge!!!

This has happened to some friends of mine also.

I bought it about a year ago and around the time (a year later) I bought it, the charger stopped working.

I tried several chargers on my phone and other RAZR's - but they just won't charge.

1. Is this happening to anyone else?
2. Can I fix this problem?
3. Or should I just get a new charger?
4. Even better, get a new phone?


I am experiencing the same problem. No matter the charger...the phone will not charge...any ideas? The problem is definately in the phone not the charger. My phone was purchased new in 12/06.

I had a similar problem: the battery and charger seemed to work fine (the battery holds a charge if it can get charged), but the phone would not charge when plugged in. On occasion it would start charging in my hand right after plugging it in, but would then stop charging as I put it down on the desk (infuriating). If I got lucky and set it down at just the right angle it would continue charging. Trying to fix the problem, I got a T6 bit and pulled the back off the phone, blew dust out, and removed a large clot of grit from the bearing of a component (I'm not sure what it is) with a swiveling part located right above the charge input. I also cleaned a silver colored electrode-looking thing opposite the piece I just mentioned (when closed these two parts are in contact I think) and removed a large amount of dust from the connection next to said electrode. now my phone charges! doesn't matter what angle it's at.

My razr v3 died yesterday. tried all night charging, still dead. no juice to turn on. bought 2 years ago, worth new battery?


Well... I would say no.. Not worth battery.. I had the same thing happen to me where my phone wouldn't charge and we bought a new battery for $50.00 and then we find out my phone is shot.. so I would strongly recommend getting a new phone..

You'll need the motorola software compatible with the v3 and the connection wire. I bought mine on ebay for around $10 and it came with a cd loaded with ringtones, mp3s and pics.

V3 Razr


It's the phone itself that needs to be fixed. Buyer beware as they say about Ebay. There are cheap repair shops around depending on where you live. No more than $50. Might have to call around to fid one.

Phone won't turn on/charge


Kikimenor: Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7. They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.) If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.
