Logo stays on outside display window of cell phone
I have a Motorola RAZR V3. Whenever you open or close the phone the Motorola logo stays on the outside display windown of the phone. No longer does the time show up. I have taken the battery and the sim chip out and re-seated them. I have also done a Master Reset on the phone. Not sure of anything else to do.
Re: Logo stays on outside display window of cell phone
I'm having the same trouble, and I've found it's because the v3 no longer recognizes the opening and closing of the phone itself. You see, when you close it, something is triggered that tells the phone to shut off the main screen and change the outer screen to the usual mode where it shows the time. You can also test this by trying to take a picture and closing the phone - the external lcd no longer doubles as a second camera display to easily take pictures of yourself.
I dropped mine into the toilet, and I'm not sure if there's anything to do but take it to a tech. Sounds and looks like a hardware problem to me.

Moto RAZR phones are notorious for this. Best thing to do - Get a new phone. Inside of the hinge, there is a sensor that detects if the phone is open or shut. When you open the phone, it still thinks its closed, so the screen stays white, and if im correct the outside display should still work. Pretty much not-fixable unless you know someone who can take it apart and re-position the sensor (will void the warranty)
The flex that connects your screen to the phone board is bad and has worn out. It is commom with flip phones. All you need do is to replace the flex and be very mindful of how you close the flip phone.
in the top right corner you are suppose to have a little circular magnet that changes the screen when the phone is open or closed. I just changed my housing yesterday and took the magnet out and put it in my new housing but for some reason i have the same problem as you. so maybe you lost the magnet when you replaced the lcd and if that is the case then you are screwed. try have Motorola fix it, don't tell them you replaced the lcd
I had the same problem. I sent it back to Motorola for warranty. They fixed it and said it was a connection issue.The connection between the screen and the keys came unplugged. This is a regular problem they have with this phone. The phone is poor quality!!!!
Does anything show on the external display if you go to take a picture, but before you acually take it, close the phone and look on the external display as if you were taking a self-portrait?
To make fully sure, while the phone is closed, press a volume button - does anything show on the display? If so, the external display functions and it would be a setting that may have been overlooked.
