    I'm having the same problem and the pressing worked for one day, then during a phone call the screen turned white and I tried restarting and now screen is black and keypad lights up still. I have ordered the t-5 screwdriver and I was wondering if I opened my razr up and tried reseating the cable would this work better? I'll post again if it works. And any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,  This is a common problem but there is hope.  Open the phone and turn it over so that the camera is facing you.  On the

left side between the camera lens and the vol up/down buttons

squeeze that area.  This is where the ribbon cable is connected.

By squeezing this area you reseat the connection.  Let me

know if this helps you.

Okay, so I took my V3C apart and the LCD flex cable was secure in the front. So I open the back, and for whatever reason the bottom half of the back of my Razr (the part with the speaker phone) is loose. It's been this way since I bought it off Ebay and I never had trouble before now. So anyway, I put alot of pressure and realigned the flex cable in the back and added a little tape to secure it better, worked like a charm, for now at least. So, if you're having the screen problem and the pressing doesn't work for you, try opening the back of it and checking to make sure the connection is secured there too.

Screen doesn't work. only after sereval attempts

This is a known problem for Razr V3. I had a phone like it with the same problem four years ago... I bought another brand and put the V3 away..three years later the phone works perfectly but I have not used it since three years..only turned it on to see if the screen will come on. Get the phone repaired or buy a new one. this is common on a RAZR

Screen wont work

You'll need a new phone. RAZRs die a lot, and they start their final journey this way - with smaller malfunctions that end up leading to death. Move your contacts to the SIM card if you get the phone to function again, and go get a new one soon. This one's on the way out.

Black Screen

Hi, before sending it in or taking it to a Motorola repair station, try this. Open phone turn it over so camera is facing you with finger behind and thumb of your right hand sweeze the area between camera lens and the vol up down button to reseat the ribbon connector that is located in that area between the cases. This worked for me and it is worth trying.
