Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
My phone works perfectly except for the display. ALL BLACK! I reconnected the flex cable in the front and back of the phone. What else could this be and can I fix it myself? THANKS SO MUCH!
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!

You'll need a new phone. RAZRs die a lot, and they start their final journey this way - with smaller malfunctions that end up leading to death. Move your contacts to the SIM card if you get the phone to function again, and go get a new one soon. This one's on the way out.

most common problem is lost contact in you flex connector or defective flex connector. try opening your phone and check the connection.
if everything if fine, then your LCD must be defective. have it replace and im sure your prob is solved.
