Question about Motorola Mobility RAZR V3

1 Answer

Motorola V3 keypad will not light

This is an old V3 but it has never been dropped or banged. The keypad light stopped working at some point and now only turns on for about 2 seconds when the phone starts. I have tried completely covering the light sensor and doing a full reset on the phone with no change.

    I have a RAZR phone and all of a sudden the key lights aren't working. They only come on when you turn the phone on. I have taken good care of my phone, I don't see why it is doing this now! Please Help!

  • rlee131 Jul 06, 2008

    The keypad light no longer goes on, except when the phone is first turned on (goes on for a couple of seconds) then, when you close the phone and open it the keypad light does not go on. I have reset the phone, removed the battery and sim card but it did not correct the problem.

    Any solutions, I see others have had the same problem.

It also may be due to Blue Tooth IC- if this IC get out of order than it will create Dramatic problems in phone. First check out a format to your phone and re-install it (FLASH), but I hope that doing this U will solve your problem

Screen wont come on

99% of the time you cant fix the screen and have replace them as no diffrent when you get the phone wet. If you have insurance or warranty it will cover it although dont tell them you drop it.

Keypad will not work

This happened to mine after I got the Razor wet - I pulled the battery and the sim card, blew it out with a can of compressed air and it worked for about 8 months. Then it got hot out in my car and started doing the same thing - blowing it out hasnt worked again-
