Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

V3 never registers when I close it, battery is being wasted!

My RAZR V3 flex cable broke during normal use (in my hand!!); I ordered a part off eBay, took the phone apart very carefully using online instructions, and put it back together.
Phone works great, camera works, screen works, etc, but the phone isn't registering when I flip it closed. Therefore, it is on all the time, and the buttons on the sides always work as they would when the phone is open.
I can deal with it, except the battery runs down within a day.

Which piece of the phone is the problem in? Any ideas on how to fix it myself?

You forgot to replace a small magnet that goes in the upper right corner of the cover (when closed) next to the screen. Try to put a magnet in the circular hole.

Motorola RAZR V3 LCD SCREEN went blank - black screen


The LCD flex connector is very sensitive. 4/5 of the RAZR screens I see go out are due to a loose flex connection. It's super easy to fix it. Take off the battery door. There are two T6 screws. Take them out and pop off the bottom of the phone. There are two flex cables: one for the keypad, the other for the screen. Connect the flat cable (screen cable) first. Then connect the bent (keypad) cable. Put back together. Voila.

Retrieving data, broken screen


hi
The Phone needs a new Keypad flex and most likely a left hinge pin. When the phone is open, the cable runs through the left side of the hinge. It is very common for the hinge pin to become chipped and put a small cut in the Flex Cable.
You can get the parts on ebay. search for motorola v3 keypad flex, and motorola v3 hinge, or knuckle.

thankyou.

Razr v3 flex cable connected but screen is still black


You can buy a new phone.....but I had the same exact problem with my motorola v3 phone. Every now and then both screens would work for a while and then turn completely black or sometimes white. Most of the time black. The keypads would light, I could make and receive phone calls, but I couldn't see anything on either screen. I moved all my contacts to the sim card and I got a new phone thru an upgrade with my company. But I was still determined to get the V3 to work again! I brought the phone to a few cell phone repairs shops and I was told that the connectors from the flex cable inside the phone sometimes get loose. Make sure they are tightly plugged in. If that doesn't help then the flex cable needs to be replaced. Some of these repair shops wanted up to $65.00 to replace the flex cable! I could replace the phone for much less than $65.00! So I decided to go to ebay and type in Motorola V3 Flex cable......hundreds of places came up that sell this flex cable. I found a place in my area and ordered one. It cost me $5.00 and I got it within 2 days! I looked online on how to install the flex cable and everything from how to disassemble the phone to installing the new flex cable and reassembling the phone was right there! I followed the instructions and I installed the new flex cable and the phone is as good as new!!! Both screens are working and I didn't loose any pictures or contacts from the phone!
All it cost me was $5.00 and about an hour of time! It even came with free shipping! Go to google and type in Motorola v3 black screen and look thru the solutions. Some of them will explain how to disassembe the phone and replace the flex cable with detailed pictures! You can buy the torque screw drivers at Home Depot or on ebay! Good Luck!

RAZOR V3


it shows that you are having flex cable issues - common problem with the v3. you would have to bring it to a local repair shop or order a keypad flex and button flex cable to do yourself.
the parts are about $15-40 and a shop will charge about $25 to install

if all else fails contact me and we can help arrange it.

HOW TO INSTALL THE OEM Motorola RAZR V3 Keypad LCD Flex Cable


1), remove the bottom part (completelly)
a) do you know how to open the bottom part?


2) remove the cover on the top part
a) disconnect the keypad LCD Flex Cable

3) remove the two chrome "big screws" that allows it to open and close

4) CAREFULL!!!! WHEN YOU READY TO SEPARATE THE TOP PART FORM THE BOTTOM!!
a) make sure the Flex cable is loose, and take a screw driver, push the ping on the other side (try to do this at the edge of a desk or table) keep pressure until this side pops out. KEEP IN EYE ON THE OTHER SIDE!! that the Flex cable does not get cut out by separating the two sides.

5) Replace and pop the two sides together.

6) Put everything back together.


Good luck!
let me know if I need to be more specific

Screen not working


On a RAZR, there is a problem in the joint or hinge where the phone opens, and the flex cable that connects the two often comes loose. This can usually be fixed short term by pushing the halves of the phone together firmly, and then opening and closing the phone. Do this while the battery is out.

For a long term fix (or if that doesn't work), you have to take the phone apart. It would be best to take it to a repair shop for this.
