Question about Sony Ericsson K800i Cellular Phone

Background lighting gone crazy

I just bought the phone 3 days ago. Everything was fine until I decided to download some games from the internet directly from my phone, into my phone. Everything was OK. After that too, but when I started Super Mario, I simply couldn't exit the game. So I turned my phone off. After that I wanted to start PhotoQuestPhishing which was on the phone when I bought it, it simply displays a white screen and the entire display closes. After 2 seconds the display comes back, but no backlight, no matter what buttons I press. The interesting part is, that if I go to Settings->Display->Brightness and I move the bar to the left or right, the backlight simply turns back on. I also noticed that if the keys lock, the display starts to dim, and after a while it turns off the backlight. This is normal. But when I press unlock it should return to full strength, instead, it comes back only to dim mode. After a few seconds, if the keys don't lock, the dim dissapears automatically and the display comes back to full lumionosity. And I don't do anything to it. Another thing is when it's under charge mode, the display doesn't light up, only if I go and move the bar in the brightness section under settings->display. I went accessed the service menu via ->

Ok, this problem is a game glitch, if you downloaded it from the internet, it may have some bugs or some glitches that screws up your phone. I suggest you go back to the shop and exchange a new phone because if it was only three days, the warranty is still valid. So go to the shop immediately.

Hi i cant get an internet connection and cant download apps either.

Since you just bought the phone, please take back to your cell phone service providers store and have them show you how to use your new phone to connect to the internet. This is what you're already paying for each month.

Experia x10 looses battery charge so quickly it lasts less than half a day now. Was fine until I connected to internet and wifi.

All phones use more energy when connected to WiFi.
In order to preserve battery life, shut down your WiFi unless you need it.
Find Settings>Wireless and Networks , and uncheck the WiFi box.

It sounds like the software has become corrupted. Try a master reset...but back up everything important before you do it.

My phone won't vibrate (Sanyo Katana)

I have the same prob just today it stopped vibrating all together. But my phone came all messed up because it didnt have some prgramming codes in it so the sprint pace on the phone had me practactly hack the matrix of my phone. It was pretty interesting, but anyway yeah i have the same prob thinking of upgrading.
