    Phone worked fine, while at inlaws. Drove home about a half hour and tried to use phone nothing. Comes up to the Verizon Wireless screen, stays on for a few seconds and then goes blank. Comes back up to a Verizon screen and again blank.

Try pressing holding down the silver button in the middle of the directional pad and the power button together until you get to the master reset menu.

All you can do is a battery reset. Important thing for battery reset is to always make sure unit is on. Remove the battery. Wait 10 sec and then put it back in. Other then that check your warranty status.

My moto q classic is stuck in a flash mode it says. its a black screen that pops up saying, motorola flash mode bootloader version BOOT_C_03.08.00R_MPAP charger connected please connect the...


Your system software / firmware has become corrupted. You need to download and install replacement firmware for your phone. You need to choose the correct firmware for your exact model and service provider / carrier for it to work.

I wrote fixya tip on how to do this a few months ago, the links are below. But don't use the verizon firmware unless verizon is your carrier - get your carriers firmware from Motorola's MotoQ website.

Or, just take it into your service providers store and get them to do it.

I hope that helps.

My motorola q is stuck in flash mode


I can help you with your Motorola Moto Q's system software problem.

What has happened is that the firmware of your phone has become corrupted. When this happens your phone will no longer finish its boot sequence.

This is a very common situation with many phones: in fact, much of what I do here at Fixya is explain how people can fix their MP3 players, GPS and phones by reflashing the firmware.

The good news is that if you take your phone into your carrier's store, they can reflash it for you right there (if they have a competent tech handy.)

If you are comfortable with computers etc, you can also do it yourself. Your computer will communicate with and fix your phone, even though it doesn't seem to recognize it right now - I've seen this many many times.

My only warning for you is that if you are going to flash your phone yourself, you need to get the correct firmware from motorola's site for your carrier. I just downloaded the Verizon firmware as an example - Motorola's website has about ten different carrier firmwares for their MotoQ phone.

I hope that helps.

you'll have to bring the phone back to the carrier to get it replace.

I would try to upgrade it before taking it back. GO to www.motorola.com/update

Motorola flash mode


Have you tried a Master Re-set when the phone is off? Hold the center key and the power button for at least a FULL minute to a minute and a half. You will see the provider's splash screen, but hang tough.

This works best with the device on a flat surface rather than holding it.

Personalization screen


BDEATH HERE. First turn on your motorola by pressing *# and red key at the same time to get in the boot loader mode. Then try download flashbackup 6.22 version for motorola. Visit motox site to find the best flash monster pack for your motorola. Also write down your s/w version, flex version and what boot loader your cell phone has. and get the usb cable. Up then tell me what happened!!
