Re: screen problems

Probably not Sorry. Its just that it cost to much in labor to work on these phones and everyone thatused to rework cell phones no longer do them as it cost to much to stock parts that no wants to buy . your service provider most likely will tell you the same thing and may have a deal for you to renew your contract as I get a free phone from my provider as i say to them that I need a new phone what or how can we work this out so i dont have to go to another provider that will let me keep my # and give me a free phone? You should get a phone and if not your dealing with a cheap skate provider who probably wont be around long or will get bought out by another provider. Good Luck

HI! forget my master reset code p1i plase help me

Default is 0000. If you have further problems, you can do a factory reset. WARNING: This will format the device, wiping all data off. This will cause you to lose everything on the device. To do a Factory reset:

Jog Dial UP
Jog Dial DOWN
Jog Dial DOWN
Jog Dial DOWN

Explanation: With the phone on, move the side/jog dial upwards once , then press *, move jog dial down twice and press * again, move jog dial downwards and press *

You will then see "Service Menus" and can choose either "Service Information" "Service Tests" or "Format Internal Disk"

My screen size for web browser has gone small how to get it back to normal size ?

hay this had me stumped for days, but i fould out that when on the net, you render your screen size by using the turn wheel on the back of the phone covering the camera lens that should get you back to normal size again

I want to get master reset phone code to reset my p990i sony ericssion

 it's  better formatting the internal disk instead of the master reset. The way to do that is entering the Service Menu (Jog Dial Up/ Press * / Jog Dial Down / Jog Dial Down / Press * /Jog Dial Down/ Press *) and choose "Format Internal Disk".

REMEMBER THAT ALL YOUR INSTALLED APPZ AND SETTINGS WILL BE LOST (the phone turns in factory defaults settings)

I would like to ask a couple questions that might be of some use.

First, does the same issue occur when using the phone with the flip closed? That is, can you use the jog dial and keys on the flip properly?

If the phone works fine with the keypad and jog dial, then you should be able to try to recalibrate the touchscreen.

To re-calibrate the screen:

1. Select Applications tab
2. Select Control Panel
3. Select Device
4. Select Display or Screen
5. Follow the instructions on the screen.
6. Select Yes or No

Second, if you turn the phone off and on again, with the flip open, does anything load by itself, or does the touchscreen react as if something is being pressed?

This may indicate that there is a problem with the hardware.
It is possible to purchase a new touchscreen for under $100 from a few parts retailers such as .

It may also simply be a glitch or bug in the software or firmware OS. In this case, you can try a master reset or updating the firmware using Sony Ericssons update service (not compatible with Vista for the P910), or you could use a third party firmware utility such as from DaVinci etc.
If you choose any of the master reset, firmware or update options, you will lose ALL user data on the phone, so you should back it up before you proceed.
