Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR2 V8 Cellular Phone
If your screen still lights up but is just blank you need to reconnect the ribbon cable. If you screen does nothing at all you need a new LCD display.
Refer to this guide:
It will only take a few minutes but you do need a T5 torx screwdriver which can be found at a hardware store by itself or in a kit containing different sizes, you will also need a flat tool or a guitar pick.
Warning: Opening any electronic device will void your warranty
Begin by touching something metal to ground any static electricity to avoid damaging any components (ideally you would use a grounding bracelet).
Remove the display window, it is held on by double sided tape (it's a good idea to have some for re-assembly in case you damage the factory tape) do this by starting at the space in the top and peeling the window away by pulling and sliding something (guitar pick) down the left and right side until it is removed being careful not to damage the display.
There is a silver frame held on by 4 screws, remove these with your T5 screwdriver and set aside. Then lift up the frame it may require some force being applied to the bottom of the hinge near the keys.
The cable in question is located in the middle, use your flat tool or guitar pick to gently lift straight up on the cable approaching from the bottom of the phone and it will pop off.
Note: If you are replacing the entire display you will now remove the display the same way you removed the window. Put the new display in place with double sided tape and proceed.
Reset the cable by checking for damaged pins and then pressing firmly into place. You are done and can begin assembling the phone.
If any of the double sided tape is damaged you will need to replace it, a trusted method for cutting the tape to shape is using something laminated to put the tape on and cutting it to shape with a razor blade.
I hope this helps if you have any trouble reply to this and I will try to help. If you have any other problems with any electronics just ask and I will do my best to help you.
