    thanks for the response. the phone has not been taken apart but that is exactly what it feels like. even stranger is that the phone wasn't dropped either, it just would not open when my wife tried to open it. I have slightly pried the sides up and i can't see anything that it might be hung on

    Is this a phone you have tried taking apart? If you've taken the phone apart and then put it back together it's because you've put some of the screws back in the wrong place (some of the screws are longer than others). If you put the longer screws back in the slider bit then the slide won't move

You may want to try taking the phone apart to try and fix the problem. Have a look at the disassembly section of the following file https://www.yousendit.com/download/TTZsOGNhbEpKV04zZUE9PQ

When i slide open my phone can't let me type or make a call.


Him this is a very common problem with all flip and slide type phones, the problem your having is with the data ribbon that connects the 2 halves of the phone together, over time this ribbon wears as it moves each time you open and close the phone to keep the connection with both halves, but over time this data ribbon becomes brittle then it breaks and you lose one half of the phone making it un-usable, the only way to get it working again is to have this data ribbon replaced, this is a very common fault so all phone repair shops will stock this part and should be able to replace it for you, they will charge a fee for this so ask how much first then work out if its worth getting it repaired or would you be better of upgrading and getting another phone all together, without replacing this ribbon the phone just wont work as the connection between the 2 halves has become damaged

I phone wont open


Try turning the phone off. When the screen appears and says "slide to turn off" or cancel, press cancel. If that works then do it again but slide to turn off. If you cant slide, then you need a new digitizer. There are some other things to try like a hard reset, where you hold the power button and the home button at the same time when it's plugged into the computer, but I've never been able to get that to fix a phone where the slide capability stopped working.

Screen brightness, then disappearance.


Phone flex needs to be changed. As you open and close the flip phone, the flex worn-out gradually.

When you get it fixed, avoid opening the slide unnecessarily and also try as much as possible not to make your phone fall on the ground as this will damage the flex or even the screen.

Take care.

How do I open up my sony erisson walkman. I cant slide the back open. Do I press something in while trying to slide it open?


No. There is a very small hole at the bottom of your phone. A 1/4 of the bottom slides downwards and you can access the battery pack, and USIM

Restart the phone, e.g turn it on and off and then try again... Sometimes to delete a message, actually go into the message then press delete, it doesnt always work if you go to the inbox itself and select a message and delete :)

Cect i9 slide to unlock will not open


THIS WORKED FOR US: Hold down the power button until you see the "CANCEL" icon; tap around the screen until the "CANCEL" button turns blue - this will take you back to the slide feature. MAKE NOTE OF WHERE THIS SPOT IS ON THE SCREEN. Repeat the "cancel-screentap" process to find a 2nd spot in another area of the screen. While on the "slide" screen, draw a line between the 2 spots; when you return again to the "slide" screen, the "slide" should work.

ONCE YOU HAVE OPENED THE PHONE do 2 things:
  1. RECALIBRATE the screen
  2. LENGTHEN the screen saver time-out to something other than the shortest time available.

Hope this works for you - GOOD LUCK!

PS - dunderground posted the following solution in Apr 2009:

"The fastest way is to be on the slide-lock screen & hold the side volume button in the Up position until "Press volume down key to check" comes up onscreen. This may or may not work on all firmware versions on the current i9, but works on most. Make sure to hold the button firmly in the Up position. You will first see the normal volume speaker icon show onscreen and the volume rise, but just keep holding it Up, and eventually you should see the pop-up box noted earlier. The moment you see that pop up onscreen, immediately press the side volume button in the down position. A white calibration screen should now show & you can calibrate the touch screen using the stylus."
