    I have the bloody same prob! I sent it for sevice, they told me that it's the LCD problem. I dont believe, it cant be so many cases happening at the same time. it must be some of their scheming tactic. I guess its something to do with the software rather than the hardware.



    I also like to point out, the prob happen just after a week of my warranty period.

    i had the same problem yesterday, i had a random reboot while on the web when it rebooted the screen, keypad & camera ring were lit up. took battery out then switched back on. then i got the keypad alight & blue ring around camera lens. only way to get rid of it was to take the battery out again, but when switching it back on the same thing happened.

    i read a few forums & decided to go through the update process using the SE software. i wasnt sure it would work, but it seems to have done the trick. only problem was that i lost all my games & contacts off the phone, but my contacts were backed up to the sim & memory card.

    1 piece of advice, do REGULAR BACKUPS OF YOUR CONTACTS, PICS, MUSIC ETC, youll regret it if the phone crashes!

    SAME PROBLEM ONE DAY THE PHONE WOULD NOT TURN ON EXCEPT THE LIGHT IN THE KEY PAD & AROUND THE CAMERA LENS.CALLED SONY & TRIED TO UPDATE WITH THE LATEST SOFTWARE WITH NO JOY. SENT IT TO SONY FOR REPAIR.

    THEY ARE TRYING TO WIGGLE THEIR WAY OUT OF THE 2 YEAR WARANTY BY SAYING THE "SHIELD CAM" FROM INSIDE THE PHONE HAS BEEN REMOVED.

    NO ONE HAS TOUCHED MY PHONE UNLESS A ALIEN CAME DOWN FROM SPACE AND PINCHED THE PART!

    THIS PHONE HAS CAUSED MANY PROBLEMS IN THE PAST LIKE FREEZING/HANGING. I AM GOING TO FIGHT SONY ERICSSON ALL THE WAY.

    I have the same problem, it is called blue ring of death...have to reflash the phone. this is an unstable phone...sad...

    Had the same thing happen to me four months after I bought the phone. I took it back to the store I got it from, showed them the receipt and within a day, I had the phone back.

    I now store all my contacts on the SIM card as well as the phone and pictures, music, videos etc are all stored on a memory card.

Your phone got the BROD aka Blue ring of death you could try to update it but if your phone is already up to date then you will either need to get it flash by devinciteam or get the pcb keyboard replaced. If you have warranty for your phone you can send it back to get it fix.

Ihave a k8501. was using it one day when it crashed and now i cant get it to do anything. when i try to switch it on it vibrates and the keys light up but nothing else. what can i do?


its the BROD (blue ring of death) bug in the firmware. i had it couple of times but manage to make the fone work again.
solution
you simply have to reinstall the firmware via SE update service.it take some time so have patience and eventually your fone will start again.

My camera doesnt work


Your phone's firmware is corrupted. Its got nothing to do with the lens. Flash it with R4CK003 firmware and it will be fine..

Sony Ericsson K810i Cam Blank


Hi..

Sounds like there could be a manufacturer defect so if the phone is still within the warranty, I would definitely contact them and let them know about the green circle and such. I've never seen anything like that before on any of my Sony phones..

Hope this helps..
