Re: open/close screen sensing issue
Theres a problem with the ribbon cable inside your phone if its a sliding or a fliptop unit you need to tighten the connection or replace it. or if you don't like to open ypur phone by yourself just go to your nearest cellphone technician, he can take care of the problem.

The micro ribbon wire may be damaged if its blank if the phone is old this may be the case opening and closing breaks the ribbon wire after time. If it is new return for replacement. also in menu, phone, display is where all adjustments are.
You can pull off the other one if you want. To put it back in your basically going to have to take apart the camera. The "Shutters" on the outside is nothing more but to protect the lens will its in the camera. The actual shutter is inside the lens that open and closes very quickly when you take a picture.
Think of it this way, the shutter in the lens opens up to let in light that shows the image to the sensor behind the lens. Then it closes to "finish" capturing the light".
The "shutters" or "doors" on the outside do not move once you take a picture. They only close once the lens retract. (When the camera is turned off or idles)
Not showing on the screen in the sense, is the Operating System [assuming XP] system properties window not showing the processor details?
If its the case, generally some processors will have some issues with the Operating system.You can fix it by downloading some "hot fixes" from Microsoft.
1.Open the "run" dialog box [Windows key + R]2.Type "dxdiag" [without quotes]3.Press enter.4.You will be able to see the processor configuration in that window.
If not succesfull, please post. I will suggest another method.
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
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.
Go to Menu > Settings > Initial Setup > Display Timeout
Menu > Settings > Personalise > Home Screen
sounds like it could be a problem with your ribbon.try opening the flip and closing it.if by doing this it sometimes works and sometime does not work then its your ribon that needs replacing.if you dont want to do it your self then send it to these guys they very cheap an do most my repairs to a good standard.
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.
