SOURCE: Screen went blank

There is something you can try. Using a Torx 6 driver, remove the two screws located beneath the battery. Gently pry the plastic cover loose. There will be a flex cable connecting it to the other portion of the phone. Gently disconnect it. Using 99.5% isopropyl alcohol and a soft bristled brush clean the connectors on both the cable and the circuit board. Reseat the connector and reassemble the phone. If this does not work the flex cable or LCD may need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Blank or White screen on new Motorola Krzr k1 cell phone

If the phone still works, check to see if the left side of the hinge (when the phone is open and facing you) is loose. If you can wiggle the top 1/2 of the phone, the hinge is damaged, therefore damaging the flex cable that runs through it. If that is the case, replace the hinge assembly and the flex and you're good.

The K1 is no joke to take apart. Flex replacement requires full disassembly. I would recommend checking out www.wirelessunlimitedinc.com, or www.myspace.com/wirelessunlimited to have it done professionally, less than Motorola will charge you.

Or give it a shot if you want, you need a T5 Torx and lots of patience and care.

Motorola karma. Only the red key works, none of the others is recognized. Took battery out, no help


Hi, most problem caused by keypad not functioning, is always water issues.

Unscrew the phone and clean up the keypad area. And your done.
After cleaning up the keypad,if it does not work, means that the problem is from the board of the phone.

There is an IC inside the phone that controls keypad function, when IC gets damaged, keypads will not function until it's replace.You will need to contact a skillfully personnel for help.

Thanks.

What is satellite icon on motorola karma


It irepresents the GPS function. It is always visible on the screen to let the user aware that the phone has GPS capability. It is in gray when the GPS is not in use. If a GPS Application (e.g. AT&T Navigator) is launched, the icon flashes and changes its colors. E.g. it will show in green whenever it is fixed to satellites.
