Is your battery dead? (I know you're not stupid...)

By dead, I mean, used so much that it won't hold a charge anymore. Try taking the battery out, plugging in the charger, then turning on.

SOURCE: screen blinks

Update: Went to the Verizon Wireless store yesterday. I was told that it's a software problem and its basically like a computer crash. They could not fix it. Since its no longer under warranty, I could not simply get it replaced, either. My options were to activate an older phone or pay $50 to get a replacement. I couldn't even upgrade my plan because it wasn't allowable until 8/26!

So the bottom line is this - there is no easy fix that I (nor apparently Verizon) is aware of. It'll have to be replaced.

I put my Droid Razr on charger but battery symbol comes on with ? mark. Won't charge or turn on.


1. Turn off your phone when it's not in use. If you're not using your Verizon Wireless Razr, then shut it off. Your battery will last much longer if you regularly do this.
2. Charge your phone less. If you charge your Razr nightly, then your cell phone battery won't last long. Try to charge your phone only a few times a week to extend the battery life.
3. Keep your Bluetooth turned off when you're not using it. Applications, like Bluetooth, are notorious for sucking the power from a cell phone battery.
4. Protect your Razr from extreme temperatures. Your cell phone battery lasts longer if kept at room temperature.
5. Discharge the Razr fully. Before you charge your phone, let it completely die. You can extend the life of the battery by regularly discharging and then fully charging it.
6. Leave the battery in the phone. Keep the Razr battery dry and free of dirt to prolong its life.

I have Verizon Lg-VX9200 that won't completely turn on. Every time I start it up the screen shows Verizon Wireless, then goes white, and repeats.


This can be two things.
1. Have you dropped your phone in the water recently? If so, put it in a bag of rice (no joke) for about a day. Then Take it out and try again.

2. If this does not work, than you have a corrupted battery. Go to Verizon and ask them about buying a new one.

My motorola droid screen went completely black. i wasn't using it at the time. i still hear that i'm getting messages and i can receive incoming calls but i can't see anything on the screen.


try taking the battery completely out and putting it back in, it's called a "Hard Shutdown" restart the device and it should be back to normal operation, if not, see your local Verizon Wireless store.

Froze and will not turn back on.


Happened to me, if you have tried replacing the battery and everything else. Then take it to your local Verizon retailer with people that can repair it. If they can't fix it then they will send you a new one for free.

I ended up having to take my phone back to Verizon.  They replaced it with a brand new one because they were unable to find the problem.
