Sony G900 won't power on

My G900 had a small fall and got powered off, now it won't power up again, but when i connect it to the charger the screen lights up and the charger icon starts working, i also tried the update service it managed to upload and install a new software version but still the phone won't power up with the power button.

    Thanx Viper,

    actually this is the second time this happens and they fix it by flushing the software, while i was there another guy came with the same problem and they where going to change his motherboard, good thing is its still under warranty so let them change what ever :D as soon as my Warranty is void i'm getting my trusty screwdriver to work ;)

    no they changed the MB for the other guy but for me they only flushed the software and its working fine now :)

    well its a great phone although i don't use its browser that much, but overall its perfect for my use.

Hey mj, the thing u r talking only mean one thing, your on-off switch is broken!! that's it.. go to technician and ask them to repair the on-off switch, if they tell you other thing is broken, don't believe them, all you have to change is the on-off switch (which cost only a little). If they asked you how you know that only your on-off switch get broken, answer them you got a cousin who's a technician, but he's going out overseas for the moment, so he asked you to fix it to nearest technician. I suppose, it won't cost you more than 10-20usd. gud luck ^^

P.S: ur phone is completely ok.

    really? they change your motherboard? umm, i suppose u brought it to Sony Ericsson's service center then? Well, if they change you a new motherboard it's ok, as long as they didn't change you another motherboard (second-used). But good thing that ur phone is OK now ^^ that's the most important. btw envy your g900, i wish to use it too ^^ any good or bad experience using this phone? e.g nice to use while browsing, or some buttons is hard to use or whatsoever?

Touch Screen of G900 not working

This seems like a nasty problem. It seems that you eider have a shredded cable coming from the touchscreen face of the phone going to the motherboard on the phone. If you have skill then go onto eBay and search for "G900 Touch Screen" but it may be quite expensive. Another option would be to bring it to another phone repair shop and let them do the work, again being expensive. Theres no other options Im afraid only to replace the phone for something else in the mean time
