    NY RAZR IS DEAD AND WILL NOT CHARGE. When trying to recharge it recharges for a few seconds and then stops.We took out battery and put it back in and that did not help. I tyied to recharge in the auto and it started to recharge but after a few minutes it stopped recharging.

    My RAZR will start charging, then after a little while it will say that the charge is complete. You take it off charge and within minutes it starts flashing "low battery". I replaced the battery, cleaned the port, and got a new charger. I am still having this problem. If I charge a battery in one of my other phones, then put it back into the RAZR, it will last for 3-4 days.

Hello Tone316,

Sorry to hear of your cell phone drama. The problem that exists with your phone is most likely not the battery.

A common problem is the charging port on the phone (the place on your phone where you plug the charger). Through normal usage it occassionally wiggles loose from the main board.

If the phone is under warranty 1 year or less you can contact your cell phone provider and place a warranty exchange. They will send you a refurbished handset (no battery, no sim if applicable) with a return mailer. You will have 5-7 days to send in your old phone to avoid being charged for the replacement. There is no charge for the replacement phone.

If your phone is not sim card based then you may want to go to your local retail store so that you can get assistance with backing up your data as you will not receive your old phone back once you send it in for service.

The only way to be sure if the problem is actually with the phone is to see if you can test out another wall charger. You can do this at your local retail store without having to purchase it or use a friend or family members charger if you know of any who has a Razr. If the phone charges then the problem exists with the charger, if it doesn't the problem exists with the phone.

On the outside chance the problem exists with the charger you have to place the warranty claim with Motorola and not with the cell phone provider as accessory and out of warranty replacements are handled directly by the manufacturer.

Razr v3 won't turn on

It's likely that the charger port is grounded or it may be the battery that's totally dead. Or it maybe your charger that's at fault. Try using other charger (from a friend or new from a store) or try another battery. Have it checked by a professional.

Screen and keypad.

well, there is no much to do in there, either the charger, the battery , or the phone is dead.

Try removing battery from inside and then put everything back, and try restarting it again, after charging for ten minutes.

If it still does not work, and the phone is new, call the number on the phone booklet, and ask if you can take your new phone to an authorized shop for a checkup, if it is a faulty charger or battery, they usually replace them on the spot.

No power

Make sure you have an original OEM charger for the MDA. Many of the knock off chargers don't provide the right amperage for the device. What happens is that since the phone is completely dead, it can't regulate how many amps the battery should get during the charge and an incorrect charge current won't charge the battery. I'm guessing that someone sold you a Motorola RAZR charger or another knockoff made for the RAZR. This might charge your phone when the battery is working, but not when it's DEAD. Also you won't have luck plugging it into a computer USB cable because, again, the phone can't tell the computer what charge to send and most computers only produce <0.5 amps in the USB port.

Get a charger that states it is an OEM (original eqipment manufacturer) device or one that is specifically designed for the MDA (or Cingular 8125). eBay is full of them.

Bad charger (probably won't work for a dead battery)

Good Charger (correct amperage and designated for the MDA)

Dead battery won't recharge

if it still new and you've still got the warranty then you should ask for replacement of the whole unit.
seems that the problem of your phone is the unit itself, the charging circuit migth have disorders/malfuntioning.
ever tried checking for the specifications and directions for charging the unit.
i greatly suggest that if you got the warranty still, have it replaced.
good day!!!
