No matter what you do, you can't get your ZTE Majesty to turn on.
If your ZTE Majesty will not turn on, you may have a loose connection. Open the back and check the battery. If the phone still doesn't turn on, you might simply have a drained battery. Replacing the battery will solve the problem.
If it appears nothing is happening and the display is pitch black, it is possible that the display is defective and must be replaced. It is also possible that the phone has the Black Screen of Death. A few solutions to that can be found in Screen of Death.
Your ZTE Majesty turns on and works normally, but when you play audio with headphones and speakers, the audio doesn't work properly.
Check with a different set of headphones or speakers by connecting them into the audio jack to see if the phone audio jack is the problem.
Lint tends to built up in small crevices while the phone is in your pocket. Using a flashlight to see, remove any pocket lint with a small needle.
If the audio jack still doesn't give off any sound when you plug something to it, the cause of an audio output problem on your ZTE Majesty is a broken audio jack. Ebay sells the required audio jack.
If the screen is cracked, it will have to be replaced.

No matter what you do, you can't get your ZTE Majesty charging light to turn on and charge the phone.
Before tearing the phone apart, check to make sure there is no lint built up in the charge port. Using a small flashlight look into the charging port for any lint build up and use a needle to remove the lint. Lint in the charging port will not allow the charging cable to appropriately charge the phone.
Every phone comes with its own charging cable. Be sure you are using the correct charging cable for the ZTE Majesty.
If you have changed out the battery and the phone still won't charge, then you may need to change out the charge port itself.
There is a static sound coming from the speaker. The speaker is going in and out of sound. Replacing the speaker will fix the problem.
