Motorola V3i, has just stopped working without explanation. Will not come on, will not charge battery. No visible signs of damage. Have swapped with charged battery from another phone of same make and model (wife and children all have same model purchased at same time) but this has no effect.

    This site doesn't help with this sort of thing but others have found solutions on XDA developers for this sort of thing. I don't endorse it but it may work.

      Have you tried another charger? Try also to take your battery out. Then hold power button for 15 seconds. Then put the battery back in and charge for 2 hours then check the phone again.

      Do you see any lights when you plug the phone In? Does the screen light up when it is plugged in? Does the battery look normal or is it puffy?

      Invalid battery

      Pull out the battery *while the phone is on*. Wait 15 secs then put battery back in and turn phone on. That should fix it.

      Won't charge

      You have taken the appropriate steps. Now you have determined that the problem is not battery, it is the phone.
      Most likely causes are:
      • Bad connection between battery and phone due to damage
      • water damage to the phone or corrosion
      • leads from the battery to the phone are broken.
      Either way the phone will require warranty work or replacement.

      Charge by usb cable

      When we connect the phone to PC it automatically start charging but after 5 mins it stops its because we do not take any kind of action i.e. if you will send some files to phone or will operate phone from PC it will keep charging otherwise as you have said it will stop.

      Razr V3i charging problem

      Hi V3 is very fragile and if you use the incompatible accessories, you can ruin their ports easily. One weak point of V3 Phone is the SIM card Port is not an opening flap like other GSM phone but using pin and spring Port style which is mean you have to push your SIM card in and use the SIM Card edge to push the pin down in order to contact with SIM metal area interface. But by pushing force is varied from users so too strong and too hurry will damage the pin. If one of the pins is damaged, when you slide the SIM card in, the contact is missing of one or two pins due to damaging of the pin cause the error message "Insert SIM". In this case, only way is needed to replace the SIM Board underneath. If you can do it yourself, please follow the instruction pictures below. If you are not sure and never do this before, I suggest you send the unit to Motorola Repair Center. Your SIM Card Board and charging port will need to be replaced. This is a Full Motorola V3 Officially Service Manual and even the Motorola Repair Center also has this one. so copy this link and print it out. Around hundreds plus pages but can be your Guide which you cannot find anywhere else. I gave it to you free but I have purchased it before. Hope that you can get it fix. Other solution is looking V3 parts on sale a lot on Ebay and use them to replace part to your phone will be cheaper if your phone is no longer under warranty. If it is still under cover then send the unit to them and don't spend time and money to do it yourself. But if it is out of warranty and want to avoid costly repair then use the method in the manual I provided you and you will be able to get your phone fix. Good Luck
