Yesterday, it went off again and its been whole day when display just wont work. I can receive calls etc...but my display doesnt lit up. Any expert here who can help me out? Thanks

    Last night I shut my phone, and then re-opened it, but when I re-opened it the screen was black. So, I figured that it just shut-off so, I turned it on again, and the buttons lit-up but the screen did not. So I took out the battery and put it back in and tried it again but the screen was still black.

  • Anonymous Apr 12, 2009

    I have had 3 Motorola Krzrs since January...each one has had major problems, but my current one is the worst. I opened it to check a message and the screen was blank so I shut it off and took out the battery. I put it back in turned it on and it worked, but when I shut it the screens quit working again. Each time I shut and open it I get a different color background. Turning it off and back on helped for a while and I could still receive calls, but now when I try to turn it on it just gives me a blank white screen and won't work at all.

If you take the battery out then with the battery out plug in the charger, this worked for me.

Try taking out the battery, put it back in and while powering up the phone, squeeze the bottom left corner of the phone - under the keypad *, next to the mic - and see if the display lights up.

Since it is a flip phone i guess your flex is damaged or your screen is faulty.You need to first change the flex or check whether the cord is well connected.

Backlight display not working

Hey Dannes1956,

The Motorola V3m has a light sensor, which is visible just above the right soft key -- the key above the CLR button. This light sensor turns the backlight on when you press a key in the dark and disables the keypad backlight when you are in a well-lit area.

Your phone sounds like it's operating normally. I believe they disabled the option to activate or deactivate that feature.

Hope this helps,
