Question about Sony Ericsson K550i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Eratic behaviour with K550i.

Just recently, my phone keeps coming up with the message "continue playback through speakers". The message remains for a few seconds then goes away and then comes back again. This is seriously draining my battery.

I tried lots of profile settings but still no good.

Any ideas how to stop this message.

ps I don't have earphones plugged in.

    I tried the suggestions given by eagle338 and although they didn't work, it eliminated them as the cause. As described before, the message would come on and give a yes/no option but regardless of what you tried nothing stopped. It went on and off like this all day and so I had the phone almost permanently on charge. I tried taking the battery and the sim out but that didn't make any difference. When I got home I let the battery die as I couldn't be bothered with it anymore. After a while I charged it back up again and now it's working properly again. Wouldn't have thought the battery would have caused this behaviour but it's still happily working.

Hmmm.. Thats wierd! It can possibly be 2 things
1)Corrupted firmware. If this is the case you will have to update the phone's software.
2)Bad port: Check to see if the port has dust clogged in it. Wipe it it with a soft dry cloth or an eraser and see if it resolves the issue.

I'm getting the message 'Application error' while trying to open java games on my k550i, could you please help ?

I also got the same model as yours and usually when I download trial games from the internet who does not specify the game's compatability size that error message occurs.

It simply means the phone does not support that format.
Formats that are compatible with K550i are 176x220 and lesser screen sizes and programming codes.

My advice, download apps and games that are only compatible with your phone, always scan it with an antivirus first before uploading to phone.
