Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Razr button doesn't work

I spilled a bit of water on my razr. It seems as if it could work. I've dried it all out, I turn it back on, and asks me for my unlock code. All the buttons work fine except the 3 and the 1 button. When you push them, it makes the * as if you pressed it, but then deletes itself. I need the 3 to unlock the phone. I already bought a replacement phone, I'd just like to be able to turn it on to get some pictures and phone numbers off of it.

My Razr v3 won't turn on and it's only 2 months old. the battery was fully charged in another phone. I've tried holding the on button down, plugging in the charger and replacing the battery but the phone...

Well you seem to have done the hard bit.Either charger or battery you`ve tested.

Just had one thought,How long was the battery out of the phone?

So put the phone in a warm room for 2-3 hrs.As condensation can form in the phone. Firstly remove the battery and check there`s no moisture anywhere.

The last solution I can think of is to try a battery in the phone ,plug the charger in and try charging for 3 hours. It can take time for the graphics to appear.

Well after it not being the battery,charger it will be the phone. So take it back to your retailer and ask for a replacement.

Hope i`ve helped!

Water damage??????????/

Hello jbonesg,

I have to ask did you indeed get water on it at all ? If so that could easily cause it to short out if it wasn't dried out fully and was turned back on. In which case there is nothing you can do but replace the phone.

If you never got water on the phone, you can bet it is a manufacturing defect which Motorola Razr phones are notorious for. Either way you are looking at replacing your phone as repairing them is not very cost effective.

I'm sorry for the new's, I wish I could tell you something you would like to hear. Thank you for trying Fixya!

I spilled water on my phone and both the screens don't work how can i fix it

Don't try to switch it on, whatever you do! Leave it somewhere warm and dry for a week or so, to allow it to dry out. Then try switching it on.

RAZR - Sploosh!

the main flex cable connector in the screen is most likely corruded... u need to open the cover and get it cleaned and replace it.this might be a bit difficult if u don't have a t6 or a t4 screwdriver, but if u do u need to remove the 4 screws located under the rubber stubs on the inner screen. pry off the cover and pop off the main connectore on the left hand top of the screen and clean it carefully with an old tooth brush and a little spirit. u need spirit because it evaporates quickly. you don't need anymore water in your phone.
If this doesn't work u need to get someone with another razr and go through the steps of copying your numbers onto your simcard. Each step u take on the working razr make sure u do the same on the damaged one.remember u can't see the screen on the damaged razr.when u are through u could always remove your sim card and try locating the numbers in another phone to see if u were successful.when you are doing the copy transfer on your phone if it was a lot of numbers make sure u give it at least 5 minutes to complete....try this:-
center button
left arrow
up arrow
center button
menu button (button above the four way toggle)
down button 10 times
center button
down button
center button
wait for five minutes...
try your simcard in another phone and confirm your numbers...
this should work.

Water Damaged Razr V3

what occurs with liquid damage is a cemical reaction. the fluid and the electicity create an alckaline which looks a lot like mould but acts like acid. when this happens it eats away at the components in the phone and eventually the phone dies or the prob persist until you just can't stand it anymore.

Possible Water Damage?

I've jumped into my pool unaware my razr was in my pocket and although I ended up getting a new phone in a few weeks(phone was crushed at work), I was able to salvage my razr from the pool by doing this: You will need a T6 and T5 screwdriver to take the razr apart. (Don't try to do this without the right tools or it will take forever). Take a large cookie tray or other large tray that will fit the pieces into. Take apart the covering and remove the innards. With a soft cloth or paper towel, wipe the innards dry. After all parts have been wiped dry, take a hairdryer and gently blow on the parts (it really helps if your blowdryer has a "cold blow" setting) and make sure that you keep the dryer as far away as possible without the loss of airflow. (All you are trying to do is evaporate any small particles of water that you may not see). After blowdrying, I wiped the circuit board with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol on some items that had water stains and waited a day for it to dry in the tray. After a day of drying in the tray, I placed all the items back together and my razr worked as good as new. Here is also the official repair manual that techs use to repair the razr. It will shed some light on details:
