Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Turns off randomly. and won't come back on. Till I plug it in.

I got mine used. From the place I usually get my old phone repaired at. It worked  fine for two days until today. I guess the on and off button doesn't work either. But it turns off randomly and will not go back on until I plug it in to the wall to charge it. And usually it won't stay on long and I have to pull the charger out of the phone and plug it back in. Works fine otherwise. Please say this is fixable because I don't want to buy a completely new phone.

GRENADES3990 - It sounds like a firmware problem on the phone so you should get the phone reflash to see if that fixes the problem.

AZHARLEYBOY - Take the phone to a mobile service center and ahve the software reflash on the phone.

What would cause an iphone 4 to turn itself off randomly?

Sounds like it needs a new battery and or the port on the phone is damaged . Have a close look at the port are any pins bent? Why not ask apple to look at it? As far as the PC goes that would also explain it but have you tried a different cable or socket or even PC? When it is on make sure it's backed up to iCloud

Try to restore the firmware on Itunes first.If it still shuts down randomly,then it means its a hardware problem,you need to contact technical support.

The touch screen does not work. I can see the background picture but it doesn't recognize any touch command. It won"t turn off either. If I click the lock button It turns black then turns itself on again.

My phone suffered the same symptoms, i was able to fix it by turning it off and on, waiting for the verizon word to animate, plugging it into a wall charger and I was then able to use the slider bar to unlock my phone, I was unable to select anything else on the phone so i closed it and used the qwerty keyboard to get to my touch settings menu, where i selected calibrate and followed the steps it told me to in order to calibrate my phone, I had to repeat the whole process several times before my phone was back to 100% hopes this helps.

Okay heres what you do guys!!! Just happened to me today and I fixed it. Mine was at the bottom of a hottub for 2 days XD.

The power in the phone needs to run out
then, plug the phone up
wait about 30 seconds(download screen should be up and it is charging xD.)
Then Take the battery out and unplug the charge from the phone
Stick the battery back in
Wait about 30 more seconds
Hold down the Red Phone untill it turns on.

My verion envy phone turns off randomly now wont turn back on

Its not the battery. My VX9900 shuts off randomly (powercycles) when Im using the IM app., and has recently started doing it with direct texting. Searching around the web I discovered its a fairly common issue with the VX9900. It turns out theres a firmware upgrade available that fixes the issue and adds a few more features to the phones software. Best to just take it back to Verizon and ask for the firmware upgrade to T99VZV04. From what I understand they may need to keep the phone for a day, but ive heard of people having it done on the spot, taking about 30 min. I also understand its a no charge update. Just make sure to back up your contacts and remove the SD card! I havnt had a chance to take mine in yet, but will be asap..its getting worse and really annoying!

Phone randomly turns off

You shouldn't have bought a Samsung.  I have had this trouble with some old Ericssons; it was caused by the case fastening screws being loose.  Tightening them fixed it.  But if you had the same thing happen with 2 different phones, then it means you should have got a Motorola or a Nokia.

Phone doesn't turn on, randomly shuts off

The same thing is happening to me and I didnt drop my phone at all... and this is the replacement phone from my insurance that I just got 2 weeks ago... My old razor would blank screen and I didn't do anything to that one either... I think they're just crappy phones now.
