Problem connecting phone to laptop

I've had my P1i for a good few months now and am quite happy with it but I do unfortunately have one problem..

When connecting the phone to my laptop via USB, my laptop will only recognize the phone if it is in the "File Transfer" mode.

If I change it to "Phone Mode" my laptop cannot see the phone anymore and I am unable to syncronize or make use of PC Suite.

If anyone knows how to resolve this, I would really appreciate your assistance!!

Thank you!

I haven't acutally got my P1i and laptop with me so I'll see what I can do from memory. When you put the P1i in file transfer mode it becomes a USB mass storage device and just presents the M2 memory stick in the side of the device as a drive letter in Windows Explorer. However, if in Phone mode it expects the 'mrouter' program to connect the phone to PC Suite using the DCU-60 cable as a serial line. In the system tray you have an mrouter icon which when you right click allows you to select the serial port to connect to the phone. You may need to adjust this recognise the phone. There are also some drivers required for the mrouter interface. Check device manager and make sure there are no yellow question marks in the ports section. You can also use Bluetooth to connect mrouter to the phone, this'll become clear when you look at the port settings! Hope this helps.

My sony ericsson p1i will not charge despite


The only thing to do is go to your network shop, explain the situation and that you would like to try a different charger.
If you`ve checked battery and charger then it would be the phone itself.
If you are in warranty claim a new phone.

I own a Sony-Ericsson P1i. Its sound volume is very low and though I have kept it on the maximum, I can barely hear the opposite person talking to me. But the music volume is okay, and so is the headphone...


I had this problem too but i found this on the web so i'm gonna copy paste . Good luck!
"The low volume in the in calls in SE P1 / P1i can be easily solved in this way/hack:
(Thanks to montsma, the Junior Member AT noeman.org)

Speaker volume in P1i Service Menu

Go to the Main Menu > Phone > Phone to open the virtual numeric keyboard.

Do the following;

- 1 click up on jog dial and press (*)
- 2 clicks down on jog dial and press (*)
- 1 click down on jog dial and press (*)

to open the hidden Service Menus part of the phone.

Then go to the Service Tests > Speakers.

There are two selections, rear and front, and the "front" adjusts the volume of the ear speaker, which is used during the calls. Increase the volume to %100. Quit the Service Menus and make your call. I made one try and it was cool!"

Bluetooth connectivity


If your PC can't findthe drivers for your bluetooth device then it has nothing to do with your phonebut your PC.
 
If you can’t sync withyour PC when you’re using the USB cable then try installing the Sony Ericsson PC Suite.

Screen stopped responding in sony erricson p1i


Hi,
Enter the service menu to see if the screen works there. If not try a master reset. If this doesn't help then try to reflash the phone with SEUS. If it still doesn't work, it probably means the screen has malfunctioned and you need to send the phone to a service center to be repaired. Good luck!
