Droid Razr White light but battery 100% issue
I'll start this by saying I bought this phone from a 3rd party and don't have a warranty. I need to fix the phone myself, by someone more knowledgeable than I, or buy a new one if this problem is not resolved.
Long story short, left my phone off while I slept and awoke to a dead phone. Plug it into the wall, white light stares back at me. The second I plug the phone in, dual core moto logo appears, and it turns on. The phone gets to the sd card check and shuts down. I try this a few times with the same result:
moto logo > SD Card check > Connect charger warning > phone shuts off > plug in charger > White light > moto logo > you get the picture
vget frustrated, leave the phone alone for an hour. Come back, try a lower power charger, same thing happens after 20 mins, white light to turn on to automatic shut off.
Open up the back of the phone, charge the phone with a spliced USB, phone is on and everything functions fine. Phone won't charge though wall, car charger, or car dock. Randomly a USB port will charge the phone, but it's sporadic at best. I have to restart my computer and the phone to get a charge, and even then it takes quite a while to charge the phone via USB port. I did a factory restore to ensure it's not a software thing, but the problem persists.
I've tried all the button combinations, powering off the phone while charging via usb, wall plugs, rain dances, string quartet and a dozen roses, etc.
Anybody have any ideas on how to fix this thing? I was thinking about purchasing a new battery, but the battery will take a charge via USB, so
I figure its the internals that might have a problem.
Next thing to try is a physical battery pull, but I don't have the correct screwdriver to do that yet so I'm hoping somebody can show me a thread that I missed in my search and can help me.
TL;DR :: White light on phone even with battery at 100%. Won't charge via wall / car charger, will charge if I try 1,000 times via my computer's USB port.
Similar issue here......please help
So i have a similar problem with the white light but charged 100% on my droid razr but my phone will not come on at all.
So sometimes when i go to plug in wall charger the white light blinks white once then nothing happens, i assume it has battery life left but still wont turn on.
Other times i have put the wall charger in and it blinks white once and a quick red light flash and then the charging screen appears and it starts charging. I have let it charge to 100% a few times and when i go to turn it on nothing happens. So i try to unplug and plug charger back in and just the white light flashes no charging screen since it has already charged 100%.
I am trying to get rid of the phone so i factory reset it and this is when the phone stopped working and the white light appeared.
It also updated to jellybean on xmas eve so idk if that may have anything to do with it.
I have tried everything to reboot the phone, volume down button and power button etc but nothing works. The phone will not come on. Nor the recovery screen.
I have had this white light issue before back in july with the phone so i bought another battery for it. But last time the phone wasnt charging at all so thats why i bought the battery. It didnt work at first when i got the new battery. It actually took like two weeks before it came on again,no idea why. But after that it was working perfectly again.
So this time around i dont believe its the battery issue this time since its charging to 100%, im thinking maybe the factory reset did something to the phone if that is at all possible.
I just want to turn the phone on to make sure everything was erased after the factory reset before i try to get rid of my phone.
Any suggestions please on how to get it back on or is my droid razr done for.
