Maybe the battery terminals and metal contacts on the battery compartment are pushed. Try to pull them upward so the battery can have a tight contact with those metal terminals. Try to clean those terminals as well using alcohol and cotton.

The flickering dim red light is not the infrared, it signifies that the battery lacks power to initialize the cellphone operation. you may want to leave it charged with the new battery for at least over night (initial charging) then once it is turned on, never leave the battery drained.

When your battery is fully charged and you get a dull light light as soon you switch on the phone, then try to reinstall install the phone software as it could corrupted and updating firmware - that is, changing the program code running the operating system of the phone - can be risky. If something goes wrong during the update process, you could be left with a non-functional device, which must be repaired at a service workshop, so its recommended to do it local mobile service center.

Good luck...

I use to have the same problem with my phone and the reason why that was happening to mine was that i dropped one too many times after one day i tried turning on and nothing happened. I would check and see if your phone is under some sort of warranty which is the case for most phones.

Visit Sony ericsson shop to change the touch screen. This phone is very sensitive and be careful of what you are using to touch the screen after replacement. Thanks

I have forgot my phone lock for my sony ericsson k800i. is there anything i can do. please help thanks.


If you are talking about the SIM card lock, you can reset this. After 3 attempts of entering a PIN, you should see "PIN blocked." Once the PIN is blocked, you will need to enter your PUK (Personal Unblocking Key). Call your cell phone service provider for this key. You can now select a new 4 to 8 digit PIN.
---
If you are refering to the Phone Lock feature, this code can be 4 to 8 digits also. The default are four zeros ("0000"). If you have changed this and cannot remember, you must take your phone to an Ericsson retailer or your cell phone service provider.

Remove the battery and put back in place.
Try connecting to the charger ansd see if it does switch on.
Go to a phone shop and ask to test a different battery, if the battery is faulty it may be shorting and the phone does not start.
If you dare to take your phone apart you could check and test with a multimeter the on off switch at the top of the phone, but I suggest taking it to a phone repair.

My sony ericsson k800i won't work it just flashes a white screen now and then what do i do


There are several cause for such problems, which are

1.Corrupted memory card. Try to remove your memory card and check if it works

2.Mobile OS infected by virus. Try to scan the mobile with any good mobile or PC anti-virus reinstall the OS

3.Electronic short circuit. If this is the real cause, then replace the worn-out hardware at the service centre.
