Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Blank display, crazy amounts of dropped calls

Hey, I'm hoping to get more help here than at the Motorola site, because the customer support there is pretty shoddy in my opinion. Well, I've had this particular phone for around 6-8 months, and I haven't abused, mistreated, or otherwise damaged my phone at all. A couple months ago my phone started dropping calls repeatedly and often, and it's gotten progressively worse, but since it would cost me $50 and the time and effort to re-take pictures and re-acquire phone numbers I haven't sent it in for a replacement. Now today I woke up and the display worked fine, I put it in my pocket and a few hours later I took it out and, poof, no display whatsoever. Not the front, smaller screen or the one on the inside of the flip. The phone still makes calls and sounds, and apparently can be operated, but no screen. My last phone also got a broken screen, and after running rings to try to get a repair, I finally caved and got a replacement. I don't want to do this again, because that would mean spending almost 6x what this phone is now worth overall on keeping my phone working. This is supposed to be a good quality phone, and I've had the same problem on the last two I've had. I don't know what could have caused the random shutting off of my screen, last time it was a combination of wear and static electricity, but this one was sitting in my pocket perfectly safe from the world and died anyways. I don't know what to do. Any help would be immensely appreciated, because I'm not getting much from the manufacturers other than "Send it in and get a new one for 50 dollars!" and I can't send it in for repairs because I'd need a proof of purchase, and the replacement that they sent me didn't come with a receipt to my knowledge. I'm stuck here. Please help.

    Oh, and I've taken the battery out and cleaned it and all that stuff they tell you to do at tech support because they think you're clueless, and it didn't help.

    Sorry for the number of comments but I've just discovered that the dropped calls thing is coming from the whole "RAZRs that drop calls and reboot" error that was made into a small percent of phones, mine being one of them... Yay. Display's still an issue though.

    Well it randomly started working again, so I dunno.

The displays on my Motorola V6 Razr have gone blank and I can't make or receive calls. This started after a very light drop, flat on it's back

The case had become slightly warped. The lefthand side of the display hinge is also the main earth/ground contact for the display and this contact was no longer solid. There is a small gold plated contact that mates with the centre of the hinge pin.
Unfortunately, the phone body required a little bit of squeezing to make the contact good again. I used a quickgrip type builders clamp to apply just a small amount of pressure to the case. The phone is now fully functional.

Cell's Display is Blank

It's possible that the flex cable that connects the display to the main board has become loose or disconnected. This could easily have happened if the phone was dropped.

The worst possible scenario would be a damaged LCD display due to being dropped.

Unless you feel comfortable with taking the phone apart, you will need to take it to be serviced.

You may also wish to find out whether its cheaper to replace the phone rather than paying to have it fixed.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Motorola A2100 Display Problem

I've had the same problem before, but it has been strictly for the short-term. It seems as though Motorola has some type of fail-safe feature that automatically cuts off the display if there are any problems or drops. Mine has done it maybe 4 or 5 times in 7-8 months. However, each time I just turn off the phone, take out the battery and wait a few minutes and it's fine. It may depend on just how hard the drop was though.
