Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3
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
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

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

Hi The thing with the battery it really worked .so if you have problems with the display just change the battery and your black dead display will turn in a nice working one .you should try it is easy and with results.good luck! cristina

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....

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.

That happened to my new razr I got for christmas, and I can't figure it out either. But only the screen on the front stopped working, the camera even still works when it's closed. I don't know how to fix it.
