Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

Display dies, although phone still functional

I'm having a problem with my Razr V3.The display is going completely dark,although the phone seems to be working fine otherwise (ie I'm able to make/receive calls, voice dial is working...) I had this happen 2 or 3 times, and each time the display came back after 5-10 minutes of tweaking with the phone (removing the battery, plugging the power cord...) I have tried to detect some kind of pattern, but haven't been able to. Last time around, with the display working, I left the phone connected to the power cord for 5-6 hours, and the display was fine. 2-3 minutes after removing the power cord, the display died again... Has anyone had a similar problem? Any thoughts / ideas?... Thanks a lot! -Dan

    Hi all,
    I posted the original problem (back in Jan). Somehow the LCD started working again (and hasn't failed since). I think it was a combination of the battery connectors being not so clean, the flex connector to the LCD being a bit loose and (maybe?) the battery dying. I haven't bought a new battery (this one lasts ~3 days without too much talking), but I plan to do so...
    For those of any still having problems, if you're courageous enough, there is a fairly good repair manual for the RazR at
    P.S. My next phone will probably be a Nokia...

My razr V3 dropped from an astonishing 40cm to the floor, after that both screens stopped working. I opened the screen by removing the four tiny screws in each corner (t5 screwdriver which I didn't have but the smallest of my miniature screwdriver set just fitted), and popping it up carefully. There a two flatcables, one with a silvery color and a connector with a black piece of foam on it. I think it's the screen signal carrying cable. I removed it and put it back in place, pushing it firmly. After that the screens worked again. 10 minutes of work and a great deal of satisfaction. Further, the phone stinks. regards, El Rudo

    Oh I forgot to mention, if you think you have the loose connector like I had, you might try pushing firmly on the top right corner above the small screen, just a bit down left of the word VGA, to squeeze the connector back into place. Saves you opening up the thang.

If both front and inside screens go off (mine just did) it seems most likely to be a connector issue. I took the battery out, removed the cover adhesive sheet and pushed on the 2 connectors that go to the screens at the top... started working again (cool). Thanks you guys for encouraging me to open that puppy up! Now it will be even longer before reindenturing myself to the Borg Collective!

Motorola produces junk... Made in China... I've been through two Razr phones in less than a year with displays that went bad. I don't think firing their CEO is good enough. Carl Icahn is right - break it into pieces. What a worthless company!

Solution #5 worked for me... My phone fell about 1 foot and the screen stopped working. I used T-5 to take off the screen cover and sure enough the flat cable was disconnected. I just reattached it and it worked fine. Took all of 5 minutes while wathcing the Cardinals whoop up on the Dodgers..haha

My phone has just died today after 12 months of hassle free use. the display on the inside and outside doesn't show at all, but i can still make and recieve calls and can get blue tooth to sync by guessing at the correct sequence of numbers. i'm plugging it in tonight, i hope it works....

The above that one is me. If anyone does happen to know how to fix a cell phone LCD screen PLEASE let me know I would love to learn

Posted on Feb 06, 2007

I happen to Work for a cell Phone accessories store and the number one phone I get in there is the razor. I have fixed many of them I will Take some pictures on basic fixes for it but if your LCD screens aren't working properly and everything seems connected you just have to replace either the screen or the Razor and honestly get something else. This has to be THE BIGGES PIECE OF CRAP PHONE EVER MADE. Which is wierd cause I love my V195.

Try removing the battery for a few seconds then restart the phone. Other than that, it could be a defective switch on the phone that detects when it's closed. If it answers / hangsup when the opened or closed... the switch is good.
