Question about Motorola Mobility MoroKRZR K1m Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Motorola Krzr For a while I would just see a white screen and after shutting it then opening it it would work. Then I would open it and no screen would show so id close it and tada it worked. Well now (coincidently after i took a pic last night) The screen will no longer come on at all..... i cant see anything. I can still recieve calls, and the small outer screen still works (but its not lit up). i keep reading to try and do the master reset but i cant see the menu to do it....... I really dont have the money to buy a new phone any ideas?

    same issue with my phone, sometimes I will open it and the screen displays upside down, I can't really afford a new phone right now either.
    The problem with my phone seems to be because it is dirty, I think I have to open it up and blow off the contacts with canned air, or wipe them with some isopropyl alcohol..

    I don't really have the proper tools to open up this phone, or maybe, I just haven't tried yet since I can't easily see the way it opens..
    it only interferes with the main display really, the speaker and everything else besides the camera work fine, when I can get the screen on, and displaying correctly.
    It seems to change the behaviour if I blow into the joint where my flip meets the body of the phone.

    Same problem with my krazr. Main screen was spotty and now will no longer work. Outer LCD has no back light. This is most likely a hardware problem like a damaged/loose cable. Sadly, my upgrade is not for 3 more months so I won't be able to get a replacement phone any time soon.

Your flex-cable is probably out of it's port. You'll need to open the bottom half of the phone by removing the 4 screws (take off the back cover). Once open. On the top part of the phone, there is a rectangular silver area that needs to snap into its connector. You'll see what I mean when you open it up. Then all you have to do is reset it in the right position and close the phone back up. I had to do this yesterday to fix my phone as I dropped it and the screen went all white.

Krzr k1 the screen went white and it shut down.( continuesly )


There is a problem with motorola phones .Data cable between screen and main board use to brake by the flip top screens hindge.Hopefully it is not your problem,if it is then only in service they can fix it by replacing this cable.If it is a software problem then you can try to solve it by yourself.It may work if the software is faulty on the phone.Just follow the link below.

Blank or White screen on new Motorola Krzr k1 cell phone


If the phone still works, check to see if the left side of the hinge (when the phone is open and facing you) is loose. If you can wiggle the top 1/2 of the phone, the hinge is damaged, therefore damaging the flex cable that runs through it. If that is the case, replace the hinge assembly and the flex and you're good.

The K1 is no joke to take apart. Flex replacement requires full disassembly. I would recommend checking out www.wirelessunlimitedinc.com, or www.myspace.com/wirelessunlimited to have it done professionally, less than Motorola will charge you.

Or give it a shot if you want, you need a T5 Torx and lots of patience and care.

Blank or White screen on new Motorola Krzr k1 cell phone


found the solution to the white screen! it's the flip sensor.. what you have to do is open the phone hard and fast... make it so when you flip it open, the sensor knows when to turn the screen on and off.. this may take up to 5 or more times.. jus keep opening it hard and it will eventually work!!!

Krzr problem with display


hey, i have the same EXACT problem. it was a great phone until that happened.  I took it to a technician and he had to send it in and said it was something with the connection where the screen flips open.  He had to send it in and they gave me a new one because i still had a warranty.
