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.

Lg laptop not power on only blinking 16 times then stop green led indicator light on when i press the power bottom it will not turn on and green light indicator goes out.?

Did you try a hard stop? Hold the power button down for five to ten secs until all functioning stops, wait five secs then try to power it back up? I'm no laptop expert, but that has helped me a few times here and there.

if your refering to the odometer lights going out this happens alot I see. one of the circuits on the back of your cluster shorts and actually gets pretty hot then some times tapping your odometer reset gets it back on usually only a temp fix :O( I read a few years back that odometers are warranteed for life by buick. dont quote me on this as it was about 8 years ago and may no longer pattain. I had mine go out. bought a new one on ebay and 2 years later say thing.

Craftsman weedwacker 31cc 17" won't start has spark fuel it has been sitting for years

Have you checked the condition of the air filter? If ok, have you cleaned and re-oiled it?

My 31cc 18" Craftsman weedwacker came with the house I bought 5 years ago. Just getting around to getting it going. Checked air filter and found it had disintegrated. The air filter is foam and you put oil on it so over time the foam will break down. My manual states that if you don't clean and re-oil your air filter every 10 hours of operation, you void your warranty so sound fairly important. Just picked up new air filter yesterday. Will let you know how mine starts up (or doesn't) later today or tomorrow.

Charger not working properly.

1st thing is to borrow a charger from a friend if they have 1 and if it works on then buy a new charger, if the fault continues then the DC jack will need to be replaced any reputible pc repair shop can do this for you

GE Spacesaver Microwave no longer heats JVM3670SF02

I would bet that either the first time or this time it is/was the magnetron tube, which has a 10 year warranty on the part, you pay for labor. Check and see what they did the last time, but they did have some trouble with the mags in these microwaves. If it was the mag, I'm not sure what area you are from, but $200 is a little high just for labor.

Screen doesn't work. only after sereval attempts

This is a known problem for Razr V3. I had a phone like it with the same problem four years ago... I bought another brand and put the V3 away..three years later the phone works perfectly but I have not used it since three years..only turned it on to see if the screen will come on. Get the phone repaired or buy a new one. this is common on a RAZR
