Hi, I had the exact thing happen to my phone as reported by Heliolis below. It had been acting strange for a while where my screen would not illuminate after I opened the cover, but it would generally work if I plugged it back into the charger. It's on a relatively new battery, as well. Any other suggestions than a new battery?

Went to charge my V3. Plugged the adaptor into the phone. The screen indicated that it was charging for about 3 seconds and then the phone went dead.
Now, phone is completely dead and the keypad is flashing.
Unable to turn on the phone, unable to charge it.
No water damage and was not dropped.
Tried removing the battery and the SIM card...nothing :(

From what you describe, it sounds like your alternator died. The battery's main function is to provide power to start the vehicle. Once started, the alternator takes over and provides the main source of power to the truck, and also recharges the battery. When the alternator stops working, the car starts to run solely off the battery. It will work for a little while, but as the battery starts to lose power, strange things will happen with the electronics. The computers and other electronics that control the vehicle are very dependent on a constant, steady flow of voltage. When that voltage dips below 11 or 10 volts, the car may start to run badly or strange things may happen with electrical system. When there was finally not enough power to keep the car running, it shut off. Of course, once this happens, there will not be enough power left to start the truck back up.
ahcuhan_92, this exact same thing happened to me the solution is to open up sony ericsson pc suite then under tools click "phone repair" and follow the prompts if this fails it means your battery is dead, try charging it and try again this worked for me
I had the same problem, blinking for no apparent reason. I shut off phone, removed battery, put battery back in, turned on. No more red light. Not sure if the charging routine gets stuck in some loop or what, where it doesn't realize it isn't charging anymore? I think it's supposed to blink while charging isn't it? Sure would be helpful if the manual said SOMETHING about it.
First of all do not put your phone in the freezer anymore because you might have water damage in your keypad and freezing it could make it worse overall. Now you should leave your keypad out to dry for a day or two then check if it works or not if it doesnt dont worry you can order a replacement keypad at http://cnn.cn this is where I get all my replacement parts at and they are really good quality and price best of luck to you.
you have a software problem. take your phone for flashing. but if there was water damage, then the phone might be dead. flashing the phone replaces the phone's firmware with new firmware, making the phone brand new
what occurs with liquid damage is a cemical reaction. the fluid and the electicity create an alckaline which looks a lot like mould but acts like acid. when this happens it eats away at the components in the phone and eventually the phone dies or the prob persist until you just can't stand it anymore.
I had exactly the same problem. After unsucessfully looking for a solution on the net I removed the simm chip and set it aside. The next day, I put it on PC usb charge and left it overnight. The next day, I powered it up and it worked. I turned it off and replaced the simm and it is now working fine. Go figure...
