    I got a Verizon v3c and it's doing the same thing. I think it needs a software update. But I can't even get my comp and the OEM motorola usb cable to recognize the phone. I have all the correct drivers and had it working fine before. Stopped working after the error showed up.

I software reset through the settings menu will usually resolve this, or a software update. Make sure you backup your data before doing this though, as you will lose all data in the phone.

If you are unable to do a software update, post a new question regarding this and I would be happy to help you out.

You should use Motorola Original chargers.

Unable to charge

Check the contacts between phone and battery, if necessary align or clean. Are you using original Motorola charger? This solved my problem; I was trying to charge it with one of those "universal" chargers.

Hope this helps!

Razr v3 drained battery charging

the desk top charger wont be working for your device and I suggest you to replace the battery on to another mobile phone and try charging it

"Unauthorized Charger"

you can try to clean the charger port (but first make sure its not bent, or broken - the pins are really tiny and hard to see, so make sure)
But try cleaning the charge port on the phone and the charger with denatured (rubbing) alcohol, and a toothbrush -

Just make sure not to plug it in when you do this!

and clean both the charger and phone, make sure neither are bent
lastly, try a new charger!

Razr V3 won't power up anymore

try a new battery and also clean the charging port if after the battery and still nothing then you need to take the phone and have it tested.

Motorola razr wont charge

Its the battery.

You can try putting the battery in the freezer for 8 hours, then leave it at room temperature for 24 to see if it can be saved.

Best of Luck.

Won't recgonize charger now

I'm not very sure about how the problem can be fixed, but the best thing to try is probably to make sure the charger is clean, and if it still doesn't work, try it on a different RAZR charger.
