    So recently I've been seeing dark spots on my screen when it has a dark background. I don't know if it's the actual screen or if it's a software issue. It only happens in a few apps such as the default texting app and the default camera app. The other thing I was thinking is it could be the pins on the back of the plate over the display ribbon connectors aren't making a connection properly. They did this before and caused my soft keys to go insane. I'm on vacation now but when I get back home I will check that theory. Is anyone else having this issue, or had an issue with dark spots on their RAZR/RAZR MAXX?

    They are normal, believe it or not. It is the adjesive between the two screens. It is only visible on a dark screen in a dark room.

    Ughhhh you're KIDDING me! That kinda blows. It freaked me out last night. I was flying down to the Keys with my dad and a couple other guys, and when we hit the Everglades and it was pitch black outside and inside the plane, you could see every single spot. I thought I was going to have to throw this one on eBay and buy a different one.

    Yeah Stephen, sorry. It is normal. Some Razrs have more spots than others. If it is any consolation, you only notice it if you are on a very dark or black screen and in a very dark room. I actually think many people returned their phones thinking they had a defect when the phones first came out before Verizon was aware that it is normal.

    Yep, it's something that's present on all AMOLED screens in some form or fashion. It might be more noticeable on some screens than on others, but as annoying as it can be in dark environments, it's 100% normal.

    Well at least that's normal. Is it normal for the soft keys to quit working when people go on vacation? Ugh I'm seriously considering selling this and getting a Nexus.

    Maybe we should rename this thread "My Droid RAZR Hates Me."

    No that is not normal (I know you knew that). Did you figure out why?

    No. I'm in the Keys and won't be home until Saturday. I tried getting some tools at RadioShack, but they didn't have a T3 Torx for sale. I was going to ask if they had one in the back (they replace screens at this store) but the manager was a prick. She slapped the tool kit they had in my hands and walked away.

    I am kind of pissed because there's no good virtual soft key apps that I can download without being rooted. I got one called "smart actions" and only the home button works. Back just closes the stupid task bar and goes back to the same page I was on. Menu is the app's menu. Absolutely worthless.

    Well my phone decided to fix itself... the soft keys are spastic now though. They'll randomly activate like someone is hitting them really fast. I think it's Steve Jobs' ghost trying to get me to buy an iPhone.

    Are you anywhere near the Bermuda Triangle? That sounds like spooky stuff. I wonder if the salty ocean air is causing corrosion problems inside the phone.

    That would be a good explanation... the salty air shouldn't have anything to do with it though. My dad's RAZR MAXX didn't do anything stupid. I guess I'll see what's up when I get home tonight.

    Well I came to the conclusion that swapping batteries a couple times pulled up on the little plate over the digitizer/LCD/soft key ribbon connectors, and the feet on the backside were no longer touching. I took the phone apart and bet those feet back and it's working flawlessly again.

    Heeey Dude :biggrin: There Is no need to buy a replacement all what u have to do is ::icon_ lala::lifting:dancedroidDancingNexus
    I follow advice from forum in my country (indonesia), and it works like a charm!
    if you want, please do this following :

    1. Pull out your battery
    2. wait until 5 minutes.
    3. insert your phone into bag of plastic
    4. Wrapp it up, and make sure that water will not enter to that plastic bag
    5. Put your phone into refrigerator in freezer area, all night long
    6. in the morning, grab you phone
    7. wait until 30 minutes, make sure every water from condesenation is clean by dry tissue
    8. insert your battery
    9. Turn on your phone
    10. see magic happen

    It works for me, i hope i works for you also.
    Best Regards :D
