W760i typepad doesn't light up

The phone is only 5 days old and when I text the typepad is not well lit. Are all the w760i's like this? It is so hard to text when it is only partially lit.

Unfortunately, this is true for all models. The black and silver models are slightly better to read because the typepad is black.

    W760i comes in 3 colors, black, silver, and red. Silver and red keypads are harder to read than the black one. It's a design 'flaw.' Unless your keypad does not lit up at all, then it needs to be repaired.

5/\ CA This text was in a message that a friend opened and then its Sony Ericsson W760i has a black screen. Maybe it was dropped? Maybe it is the flex cable? Or a virus? Any ideas?


Hello,

there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

Take care.

Inactive sim


This is a known design flaw with the w760i - it occurs when the phone requests info from the SIM (building contact list etc.) and the SIM connection is lost. This would happen on any phone but the w760i has a shock protection design issue whereby closing the slide quickly causes the SIM to disconnect. You should be able to replicate the issue by turning the phone on and slamming the slider shut as soon as the phone shows your network name. Leave the phone on for a bit and you will feel the phone buzz and 'Inactive SIM' will display, the phone will then reboot.
