    I have the same problem, but since mine was purchased as a refurb and the 90 day warranty is up, ATT won't fix it. Is there another solution??

    Sony Ericsson w580i.... when I try to turn phone on, all I get is a red flashing light. I've tried removing the battery aslo tried charging - neither works.

    I know the charger works because it still charges my w300i

    I too have the same problem. My sony ericsson w580i got discharged completely and then switched off, even after charging for 10 hours, I coudnt switch it on.
    If you get a solution for the problem could you please update me too.

    Same problem -- fully charged battery, phone won't start. After removal and replacement of battery I press power button and red light on side flashes 6 times very quickly (about 1 second or so).

Try this.

  1. remove the battery
  2. press and hold the power-on button for 15 seconds
  3. release the power-on button
  4. connect the power supply
  5. with the battery still out, try turning the phone one
  6. if it works, disconnect the power supply
  7. reinstall the battery
  8. connect the power supply
  9. turn phone on
  10. allow phone to charge battery
If that works, you should be okay from that point on.

Call AT&T tell them about the problem.
Then if they tell you to send it back, send it back to them, and then, they should send you a new phone.

Sony W580i won't turn on. Blinking red light.

It turns out i found a solution to my problem. All you need to do is wait a few days and every day try turning it on several times. Mine turned on with 2% power. If you don't see the red light blinking then you probably need to charge it up then turn it on.

Sony erricson w580i phone-camera wont start-error message

Right reset your phone. Connect to a computer, click file transfer. take the phone out, this automatically resets it. After youre phone should work with camera, remember take one picture, if you dont then it wont work again. Same problem with me, and i fixed it.
