Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Blank screen flashing on and off

When I turn on my Sony Ericsson W810i phone the screen is blank and lit up, it then only flashes on and off, nothing else comes up on the screen. If I turn off the phone then turn it back on, the Sony Ericsson welcome message flashes on for about 1 second. Is there an easy solution to fix this problem. I've tried removing the battery and SIM then replacing them, this doesn't help.

    When the power switch is pressed the phone simply flashes on and off. Happens irrespective of if the memory card or SIM cards are inserted.



    The phone was neither dropped or emersed in water.

    Problem: While trying to switch on my phone a blank, white screen appears and then instantly die- most likely a software problem or so I heart from an cellphone technician. Is there any solution to fix this problem? Should I re-install my phone's software? Help Please!!

I wouldn't call it a easy solution, but your phone is "bricked" anyway; you can attempt to re-flash the phone firmware which can be downloaded using the Sony Ericsson PC Suite.

Just run the "Update Service" application with you phone plugged into your computer using the connection cable.

90% chance your firmware is out of date and the application will attempt to flash your phone and return it to factory settings; you may loose contacts not stored on your SIM card.

If all goes well, your phone will be restored; the other alternative is to take it in for repair.

W810i flashes me a white screen then nothing


When I had the white screen problem, I was about to replace my W810i before I found out about the Sony Ericsson Update Service (SEUS). I used it to fix the firmware inside my phone, even though the phone seemed dead and my computer wouldn't recognize it. You can download the SEUS from Sony's website here:
