Dead phone but keypad flashes

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? Posting by heliolis on Jul 29, 2007Report abuse Hi, 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 :( Any suggestions?! THANKS!

My W980i Cannot be turned on, but the key pad is lit up. This happens after I try to connect my phone's mass storage to my computer.(It never manage to connect my phone's mass storage to my computer)

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

Flashing red light

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.

Exact problem!

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 this is where I get all my replacement parts at and they are really good quality and price best of luck to you.

Motorola v635 dead

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

Water Damaged Razr V3

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.

Motorola RAZR flashes Cingular logo and then disconnects when phone rings

It may be just a faulty battery
I know you said it's straight out of the box but these things can happen.
try cycling your battery.
Step 1 run your bat now until it is low and phone is beeping to recharge
Step 2 Charger your battery for 4hrs with the phone on
Step 3 use it now until it starts to beep again and then repeat step 2.
Batteries are strange different types have different charge characteristics.
these do not like over night charging or being run dead flat they preform better if they are maintained with charge all the time

Mobile Acting Strange

Have you tried downloading the Nokia software updater from the nokia website? After you download this, backup your phone. Then plug it in and it will update the firmware. This might help.

V3 dead but keypad flashing

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...
