Replaced Flip-Hinge; now can't hear incoming calls
So uhm, the side hinge on my phone fell out when I first got it. That was a year or so ago, I bought a replacement hinge and haven't had any problems since.
...until today. Now, I noticed the hinge was out and went to put it back in. After replacing it, I thought everything was fine. Then my phone rang, and I answered it but I couldn't hear any sound. The other person could hear me talking, the phone still makes other sounds, I just can't hear incoming calls I guess.
What should I do? I'm trying to take the hinge out, assuming maybe I slipped it in wrong (or something..?) but I have no idea how to take it out. Any help is much appreciated.

There is a self closer stop mechanism under the door between the door and the hinge, The door must be removed by removing the top hinge and lifting off the lower hinge flip the door and you will see a plastic piece which is probably broken there is also a piece on the hinge . Both should be replaced
Was the flap changed by a techician ? I have played with my 1200 and thus know the flap hinge area has two special aspects :
(a) embedded-into-hinge-on-one-side, a spring loaded mechanism, for the firm open-close action.
(b) a small circular magnet embedded within the hinge framework (this magnet working from the right location should be essential to trigger the answer-when-flip-open or disconnect-when-flip-is-closed systems).
So your problem could be due to one or both of these things not being (re)installed correctly.
These hinges seldom fail. Must be something wrong with the lock or other hinge.
It's called "Body Side Door Hinge"

I had the same problem with my Razr V3, it was way out of warranty so I had a go at fixing it, and it wasn't too hard.
(I had the blank/off screen problem but the rest of the phone seemed functional)
I took off the rubber pegs on the inside of the flip-screen to reveal
the screws. They need a T5 screwdriver head (tiny star shape). I
removed all 4 from that side.
I then 'forced' the back casing of the flip-screen off (side with
camera). The key is to open the end furthest from the hinge, then it
will simply lift off.
(I read a complicated guide suggesting that you use something like a
creditcard to slide it off, I'd give that a go first as I did do some
scratch damage when using the screwdriver)
Once open (might be dusty), there was a thin 'belt' coming through from
the main part of the handset (by the hinge), it has a black square on
it. This was simply flailing about, so I inserted it securely back into
it's socket (the only place it can go, same shape)
[I guess thats the power supply to the screen]
I would re-attach the back panel hinge end first (camera end).
Then simply screw it back together.
The T5 screwdriver isn't everyday stuff, most sets only go down to T10 it seems. Maybe if you have family friend who fixes things you could borrow one. Apparently those types of screws are used somewhere in cars so maybe a mechanic or car-person? (I was a bit narrow-minded and frantically bought a little set for £5)
Hope that helps.
if you lift andclose the lid do you hear "clicking" noise??? i bet not. simple repair, lift the lid and with a hollow shafted screwdriver(1/4in nutdriver or similliar hollow shaft implement)you fell with your hand the bottom half of the left side lid hinge. as you open and close the lid you can fell the opposing end of hinge under the top no need to dissasemble you can fell it right there. when you find it simply slip the hollow ended shaft over the hinge and apply pressure towardds the rear of unit.While doing this the top will want to close( your pushing against the hinge).. after appling slight pressure youll bend it slightly, enough to activet the lid switch mounted to the rear of the main lid assy.
the hinge is the middle of the phone where the top and bottom of the phone meet think of it this way if u close ur razor the top of the phone is the hinge its the things where it has two shiney cirlces on each sides hope that advice helps thanx.
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.
