Question about Sony Ericsson S500i Phone

1 Answer

Phone will not switch on

My phone froze and would not even turn off, so I removed the battery for a while. I have now put it all back together but it will not switch on at all, I know it is charged up etc as I did that early in the day. Any ideas!

The cell phone will not open even though the battery is charged


remove the battery then insert it again and then put the charger plug into your phone then press the power switch. Then phone will be turned on but only white screen, don't worry if this situation has done. Leave the phone for while it will turn on completely after few minutes.

If the phone will not turned on ( the screen will not go white) then go to service center they will update your phone's firmware.

I was using my blackberry when it froze so I took the battery out to restart it but then when i put the battery back in it wont do anything. I dont even get the light ... any help? really not wanting to...


First thing to do is check to make sure nothing is between the battery and the phone, like dust for example. After that, plug the phone into the charger and see if it will turn on. If it turns on, it is the battery. If it does not turn on, and the charger is working properly, it is the phone. Good luck.

Sony ericsson w910i problems


try this :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc .

it sounds crazy .

Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY
.

Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.

Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.

It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.


This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Phone shut off


Have you tried removing and replacing the battery pack? Or removing the battery and plugging it in to the charger? If neither works, try holding down the Power button to get it to start back up.

My K810I froze up.


My friend had experienced the same problem with her SEK810i. We both bought the K810i last year. Mine is working perfectly fine. but hers suddenly froze, and she cannot even see the phone menu. we tried to go to a service center but they couldn't fix it. So she just bought a new phone. also fro the SE phone collections.

Phone function will not turn on


I had the same problem. It turns out to be a bad or malfunctioning sim card. Get the card changed by your provider (you can still keep your phone number.

Treo 650 keyboard stuck


Sure. This involves taking the phone apart. Fortunately, it isn't difficult. Go to "mytreo.net, and find the BUZZ FIX. It will give you instructions with photos of how to open your 600 and perform the BUZZ FIX. Do that while you have the phone open. You will disconnect the battery in that process. Carefully lift the board that the battery is mounted on and this will expose the KEYPAD. Remove it, clean the keypad, and the pressure contacts below it -- carefully with a Q-tip and a little water and perhaps a little alcohol. Put the keypad back in place. Put the board back in place. Reconnect the battery after performing the BUZZ FIX (you may as well do it while you have the unit apart because you will have the buzz sooner or later). Put the case back together. Tighten the screws. Turn the unit on and make a call. If it doesn't work then you are in trouble.
