Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Razr V3i front screen.

This is the front screen on the flip-lid which is cracked. I have a new screen but am not sure how to remove the cracked one. Is it with a hair-dryer set at moderate heat to soften the adhesive under the old front? Please can you help.

    I think I asked the wrong question...its only the front inset glass that is cracked, not the whole screen. I did replace it once before but being an `old git' I can't remember how I did it. I think I used a Hair Dryer on low heat to release the adhesive! Can anyone confirm that please?

    My word, you do over-react a bit. But I am sorry about my did give me a good remedy, but to the wrong question so it wasn't your fault. I do know the inset front glass can be removed without dismantling the phone, but I want to how exactly, before I start. I was a Proffessional Engineer tuning F1 Cars, but that was back in the days before Computers came along and buggered things about!

Flip open the phone and look for (4) rubber plugs at each corner of the inner LCD screen.

Using a very small flat-blade screwdriver, pry these rubber plugs out and you'll see the screws beneath them.

Remove the screw and you should then be able to take the flip part apart. Be sure to put the plugs and screws in a secure place so that you don't lose them.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
