Re: wont turn on

Please check the charger connector for dirt, if possible take an old toothbrush and clean with alchohol, let it dry and refix everything. should work.

Re: wont turn on

I have the same problem. But my red light flashes 6x.
This appeared when putting the battery out when K610i was still shutting down (I think thats the cause)
I think only a firmware reflash will fix it, I tried many ways.

Re: wont turn on

This is a known issue with this phone. It is a software problem. You need to get your phone reflashed, either download the software and do it yourself or take it to a company that does it. In my opinion SE should pay for this as it a serious design flaw.

Re: wont turn on

Hi I just had exactly the same problem as yours. I took my battery out to use my sim in someone elses phone, my battery then went flat and got those 2 red blinking lights. Send it back if it is under warranty. They couldn't fix mine so I got a brand new phone yesterday.

My K610i won't turn on. Red light flashes n won't charge.


That indicates a problem with the battery.Try a reset first.

Connect the phone to the power adapter and then press and hold the power button for more then 1 min.If it still doesn't turn on then remove the battery and sim from the back and then insert the sim back again and hold the power key for more then a min.Make sure you don't insert the battery now.Let me know the result.

Thank you

K610i phone


Take out the battery and leave it out overnight. Then put it back in the following day and try turning the phone on. If this didn't help, then flashing is required. You can try flashing with SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service) which is free and if that doesn't work then you will need to use wotanserver(requires credits=money) or send it to a service center. Good luck!

Water damage

It might be to late, but doesn't hurt to try, keep battery / sim card out, and put the phone in a freezer, if you don't have a freezer place it next to an air vent, wait over night (10 hours at least) And you should see water dripping out, warm it in your hands for about 20 seconds, dry it out with any towel / cloth place the sim card than battery in, if it doesn't turn on contact your phone company from a land-line about your insurance
