Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Rzrs-buttons not working.

I'm not exactly sure how to take off the front of the phone and stuff that it suggests.
banging it off my knee doesn't work, and codes don't work either.
it occasionally calls someone randomly and sometimes the volume adjusts without me touching it.

Any suggestions?

You need to replace the flexcable on the phone to have them fix it for you.


MADMMAURER18 - you will need to have the flexfile reflash on the phone.

Cannot open door


The door interlock may not have engaged properly! This has happened to me and I use my knee and bang it against the door near the catch and once the lock is engaged the door open button will work. If not you'll need to remove the rectangular access panel above the plinth and get a flat head screwdriver in the slots to open the door.

How to see if your remote control is actually working


For remotes which use an IR connection you can see if they are transmitting using this trick. An IR type of remote will have one or two LED's on the front end. If it doesn't, than it may be an RF type of remote - this tip will not work for those.

Get some electronic device which can view a live image on a screen. A cell phone camera, digital camera, digital video camera, and (I think) even a web-cam will work. If you're using a digital (still) camera, you don't need to take a picture as long as you see a live image on the screen of whatever the camera is pointing at. Take your remote and find the LED on the front end. There may be one or two. (If there's two, one actually isn't an LED, but that's not too important.) Point the front of the remote at the camera (LED's facing the camera), and press buttons. You should see the LED's light up in the live image. While these LED's normally produce light which the human eye can't see, digital image sensors can, and they change this invisible light to light we can see on the screen. (Cool right?) So, if your remote is working then you'll see the LED light up on the display. (To make sure your camera is actually working as I am suggesting here, find a remote which you know does work and try it.)

The LED should light up for every button pressed. If one button doesn't make the LED glow, you may have a bad button - try pressing it firmly. Buttons can wear out. The image of the LED may appear steady or it may pulse or blink on the viewscreen - this is normal.

If the LED doesn't light up, and you know your camera works like this (you've checked a good remote), try new batteries - that solves most problems. Check the battery contacts in the remote - if they're corroded, (white flaky stuff caked on, looks like dried up salt) - you can clean the contacts with a solution of water and baking soda and a Q-Tip. Use a knife to remove any large chunks. Also, some fine sand paper works too. Both the flat contacts and the springs need to be cleaned. Wash any tools (and hands) with soap and water afterwards. Handle corroded batteries as little as possible - or better yet, use gloves.

If you have good batteries and the contacts are clean, and the LED is not lighting up - it's pooched. Try getting a replacement from the manufacturer (call or email/write them), or use a universal remote.

If you've found this tip helpful, please check the box below. =8o)

Sometimes the power button on my Toshiba Regza flatscreen doesn't work


There is a dry solder and this might require attention by a qualified service technician.

The end button doesn't work can still push it but it doesn't respond (the phone accidentally got wet the other day if that had someting to do with it)


It probably has something to do with getting wet. If you can manage to open your your phone then I suggest you open it up and wipe clean it with a dry cloth. Just be sure to return the parts back properly.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W150,screen reads turn power on and off again


You may not believe this and I hope you haven't spent a lot of money fixing your problem. I read that some people had a different error message coming up on their Sony Cybershot DSC-W150's and in order to fix it, they literally banged the lens against their knee while the lens was out and it re-focused and the error message disappeared. I tried this while my camera was doing exactly what you described above AND IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After 2 or 3 firm blows, my LCD screen came up and focused. I can't believe it myself, but I was just desperate enough to try it and VOILA!
Good luck!!

wires may be loose...

however, serously, jokes asside. try banging it on your knee, not too hard, but hard enough. Seems to fix many problems with this phone. Good luck.

Touch pad keys don't work, except the one to turn phone off


Oh my gosh!!!! It worked!!! It really worked! I had my phone in the back pocket of my jeans when I went outside in a heavy rainstorm to get to my car. When I got to school (I'm a teacher) I realized my phone wouldn't work...except for the power button. None of the other buttons worked at all...AND...GULP....the water indicator sticker inside was red. I got my second graders busy, then looked on here for some help on what to do. I read the comment about how the person laughed, but banged the phone on her knee after reading about banging the phone....not thinking it would work...and it DID! I'm SO happy!!!! Thank you

Buttons don't work on RAZR v3


Problem with Moto Razr where nothing works and either one of the following happens:
- voice record thing keeps popping up
- volume keeps moving
- none of the keys work except power off?

Here’s what’s going on:
The phone has these three silver buttons on either side of the flip. They internally have soldered connections, and those connections are getting triggered either due to water, or due to lint accumulated in your phone (yes that’s what happens when you keep it without cover in your pocket and bags). The lint and muck gets moist with humidity (rainy weather etc) and causes the same. It’s something like a ghost sitting somewhere continues to click a button. Why the power off works is because that is the only button that overrides all others.

I had the same problem and was able to fix it. It’s nota fluke, because post that I have fixed 2 more phones with similar problem, which were lying dead-unused with friends because the service center was asking for more than the phones weight for fixing it.

What to do:
Don’t try this at home until left with no other option, because opening the phone yourself is.. Anyway here goes:
Use same opening procedure as slotdoctor did in his post:
First things first –
1 - Take out the battery.
2 – Allow phone to dry. At least the water that entered it from the rain, tub, pot, or your baby’s saliva. If you don’t have access to sun, place it overnight next to the fan exhaust of your laptop and leave the virus scan or disk defrag on (to keep the fan running what else)

Get cracking it:
On the LCD side, you need to take the top apart. Take the 4 front tiny rubbers from the big LCD, one in each corner then you will need a special STAR screw driver, if you don’t have one, buy/beg/borrow/steal. Then you will need to use a blade of very thin flat screwdriver to insert in the thin area on the sides of the panel (where the silver buttons are located). I saw a YouTube demo of the same, don’t remember the link though, but you can find it. While you try and open it, think like opening an oyster if you have seen oneJ.

Clean it:
Once you succeed opening it, you will find that the three that is done, you will see that the back of your LCD, some connecting bus wires (and a lot of lint all over). Don’t touch anything. Use a clean soft makeup brush to get rid of all lint. While you do that, the silver buttons will fall off! That’s ok. Then you’ll find small electronic click buttons exposed where the silver buttons fell off from. Total 4 such buttons (the volume silver buttons has 2 electronic buttons underneath). Notice 4 soldered legs/terminals on each of these click buttons, and identify the terminal pair that has stuff between those terminals, most probably the one that was making the ghost clicks. Use a wooden toothpick to clean. No alcohol or water. Then blow away the scrapings (no spitting). You’ll be tempted to, but don’t go about poking the tooth-pick all over to try and clean every speck. And don’t even think about trying to clean all terminals. Just concentrate on the button that was giving ghost clicks.

Test!
Before you start re-assembling: test. Put back the battery, switch on, and hopefully the ghost clicks are gone.

Reassemble
If you remember what you took off, assemble back.
