    A few days ago, I dropped my wonderful Razr onto the driveway about 5 feet distance of free fall. Yes, it got some dents on the sides but none on back and front. I don't care about dents BUT BUT the front camera now shows half black on the bottom!!!! I could see something across the len. Is there a way that I can do to make that something go away? Wack it on the hard rubber? Side? Bottom? or what???? I use the front camera all the time for video phone calls.

    Sounds like you've dislodged/moved the front camera from its proper orientation. I guess you could try to "bump" it back into place but then you risk dislodging something else. There is a "tear down" video on You Tube that shows how to open and disassemble a Razr/Maxx. I'm not sure if you can get to the front facing camera even if you do that plus that.

    Looked like I'm screwed. And I don't have steady hands to handle those tiny parts.

    if you have no luck with that, let me know. I can fix that easy. I even have extra RAZR parts laying around if the camera needs replacing.
