After I use the phone and I close it, the display goes dark. When I open the telehone flap again, the display remains dark, but I can dial or turn the device off by pressing and holding the red (hangup) key. If I remove the battery and do a cold start, the display comes up properly and stays visible, until I close the telephone flap.
I did a Master reset, but it did not help.
Any help will be appreciated.
this same thing happened to me - cause LCD screen going out = it's weak and thats the sign that it is giving up.
To Temporiley to keep it on: take the battery out and back cover of battery off place phone in ICE section of Freezer ( NOT IN THE ICE )by the area where it gets cold leave it there for 10-minutes, then take it out after 10-minutes wipe everything up put the battery back on and restart phone & wah'la it's working....

This is the Early signs of Failure! Just had to Upgrade my RAZR for the same Problem. Your Options are (1) Have it Repaired-Costs a LOT! (2) Upgrade to a New or Refurbed Razr. There are no other Solutions
Try removing the battery for a few seconds then restart the phone. Other than that, it could be a defective switch on the phone that detects when it's closed. If it answers / hangsup when the opened or closed... the switch is good.
yes i think that in the phone you go to option menu in menu settings in setting displays is the option there you have the option to either turn off the display or choose the interval like 1 minute or 2 minute.
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.
