    Hi , my razor screen just went black yesterday and was completely unresponsive regardless of how long I pressed the power button. Did anyone see this issue on their razor ?

    Is this the same black screen problem from bionic ? :confused:

    I had to press the power button + down volume key for 10 sec to "pull the battery" to recover. :mad:

    By the way the battery is 100% charged.

    You my friend have just been introduced to the dreaded Black Screen Of Death!

    Its a major problem on the Bionic, in my 2 months of owning the Bionic I've gotten it probably about a dozen times! Very Very annoying, and I guess it found its way on to the Razr thanks to Motorola!


    Its an easy fix by doing an internal battery pull, so no issues with taking the case off, and battery door off and all that! But still it shouldn't have made its way onto the Razr...Moto still hasn't sent out a fix to Bionic owners....Alarming!

    I haven't seen that issue yet but I am sure there is a few defective devices out there. I would return it for a replacement. Luckily the only issue I have had is the signal issue and so far after resetting the 4G sim card it is working good. And since this device is steller otherwise I can live with a few small issues.

    Hello All,

    My new Razr started doing this on days 1,2,4 & 5. It first appeared when the battery was low, 20%, then even when the system was fully charged. It would always happen when the phone was un-attended.

    I just discovered on another thread that Screeble was killing the battery and I have removed it and hope it may have been contributing to the problems.

    I have one week left to decide if I am going to keep this phone and I hope the answer is yes.

    By holding down the power button while also holding down the down volume button for ten (10) seconds I was able to re-start my phone. Honestly, I now have grave concerns that this is the start of something that will continue. Can anyone from Verizon or anyone else explain exactly why this happened??? Should I be heading back to the Verizon Store and explaining that I want this unit replaced? I have a sneaking suspicion that they will tel me that they can't duplicate the problem and that everything looks fine to them, etc. [With me, the battery was at 70%, and it was unattended.....sitting next to me without being touched with the screen black when it locked up.] THX--B

    We spent a lot of time on the Bionic with this type of problem and collected the results in ... BSOD (Black Screen of Death).

    You might find it useful making the obvious changes for the Razr (like how to do a reset).

    Many of the failures turned out to be bad SIM cards and once replaced the failures stopped. Some bad batteries. Some errant apps. Some bad devices.

    Good luck.

    ... Thom

    Since you mention pulling the battery I think you're in the wrong forum, this is for the RAZR which doesn't have a removable battery ( without a lot of extra work ).

    Try the OG Droid forum maybe.

    i just encountered this and it was discovered to be because of installing go locker. the fix is to turn your phone off and when it is completely off power it back up while immediately holding BOTH volume keys down as soon as the dual core screen shows up and continue to hold them down until the phone has booted up and you see at the bottom of the screen that it is in "safe mode." then go into manage applications and delete suspected applications usually the one you last downloaded.

    actually the RAZR does have a battery pull option to switch off the power if the phone crashes or freezes etc.. you hold down the power button and the down volume button for 10 seconds and it stops all power into the phone (like restarting) then you just turn on as normal and chose what mode to start it..
