The phone's firmware need to be reflash , this can be done online at topsony.com or take the phone to a mobile service center and have it fix.

My iphone screen light not working but everything else still working fine


phone 3gs has additional accessiblity functions like ‘voice over’
This function gives u addtional use of iphone with tapping by using two and three fingers
Tap three fingers three times on your iphone screen. It will deactivate the screen curtain and your screen will display as usual.
If not resolved try resetting your iphone by holding down home and sleep/wake button for 10 seconds..
if still not resolved restore your iphone using itunes…..before restoring ALWAYS make a backup. If these steps do not resolve the issue, there is a good chance that the backlight has go out. I hope this helps you! Good luck and please vote if this helps.

Sony Ericsson w580i. Dropped it screen blank and calls dont work


I had this same phone and the same thing happened to me. I kept shutting it off and on - also taking the battery in and out. I eventually got the screen to light up but it would only last a few seconds. Sorry to say but you will most likely need a new phone. I had to replace mine.

May be your cell have virus or your phone operating system is corrupt. Simply format your memory card and cell and problem still continues than go to nokia care they will reinstall your phone operating system.

Make sure you have ALL drivers for YOUR phone. That should be under the battery. Under model... or something like that. HERE!http://www.nodevice.com/driver/company/Sony_Ericsson.html

Take your phone, turn it off. Start this program and click on connect.You'll have 30 seconds to plug your phone into your computer and HOLD CThe entire time! (the delete button or 2). When connected, you can let go of the C button. Click atthe button: GDFS. There will be a phone lock reset to "0000". Click it.It will take no more than 45 seconds. I promise. Unplug your phone, and vuala! If your phone won't turn on, try pulling out the battery,putting it back and trying again.

Sony Ericsson W580i is not working.


Try this and let me know if it works, if not, I will suggest something else.


Turn off the phone, take the battery out and let it sit there for thirty seconds. Replace the battery, power up the phone and try it again. That should fix the problem.
