hi the problem may be because of two reasons fist check that the battery of ur cell has been used for more than one or two years generally u should try replacing ur battery after 1&1/2 years of ur use if not the electrolytes in the cell will be used up and ur cell not not be charged for more than one year if it has not been more than one year then check the pin of ur mobile for any rust marks of any sort of dust take a piece if clean cloth and take a small pinch of solution(e.x. colin,etc) and wipe the pin thoroughly with the cloth then try connecting ur charger and see whether the battery lasts long or not if the problem still persists contact ur sony ericcson service centre for help was this useful if yes pls rate my solution or provide ur problem in brief to get a more clear solution

The external display of my sony ericsson w380i no longer switches itself off. A full battery now only lasts about 24 hours. Is there a fix for this

Remove battery off for few hours and reset it , if the fault does not clear remove memory card and check for errors or virus in the card.
If the phone reboots to actual settings then format card after removing files and reinstalling with safe files.
if no result then the software needs to be reloaded.

I have a sony ericcson W380i and it now will only light up when I switch on and then nothing else happens - so the battery is OK but no function is working. It was fine last night but not when I went to...


That means that the phone is not comleting the initial phone test, and not booting.

Remove also memory card.

Check the connector at the base of the phone, where you plug in the charger. Ensure that it is clean , and that there is nothing that can make contact in there (eg. oxide). If you need to clean the connector, remove the battery first.

Try holding the phone start button on top for about ten seconds.

Go to a shop and ask them to test a spare battery, or if you have a spare battery, test it. A shorted battery can cause the phone not starting.

If it is none of the above, then it is a faulty board. Also a short inside the phone or a faulty switch can cause the phone not starting. In that case the phone must be disassembled and repaired.

Sony errocson w380i dead

Most probably your phone needs to be reflashed. Try this link and see if it will recognize your phone and reflash it for you. Otherwise only option is to have it flashed by a repair dealer
