  • sabawlatina Aug 26, 2008

    Hi, i changed the sim card of my SE K800i. When i push the on/ off button, it does the usual vibration then the Sony Ericsson welcome message with logo appears then it starts blinking every 10 seconds. it won't ask for the phone lock anymore. I'm not using a memory card and I havent noticed freezing since i just cleared up my inbox/ sent items. I didnt install new games/ music. just added a few pics though. What's the prob with this?

    Ive tried to turn it off and on but it still does the same. Please help. Thanks

    update: it is unlikely that the changing of housing will cause it to brick, the flashing led is usually associated with flash and erom:

This happened to me, I know this is probably the least helpful answer but after trying to turn it off and on again and failing while charging it, I unplugged charger, took out battery for a few seconds then put battery back in and try charging and turn on/start it again. Then it worked and came up with charging symbol.
No idea what happened to it, can only assume because it has a mini computer that it crashed and needed a restart, just like a computer would.

Posted on Feb 04, 2013

I had the same problem
it meens that your software has malfunctioned
i needed to send it to repair
but you can do it yourself by updating the firmeware or to replace it...

Posted on Jun 04, 2008

  • harbey1 Jun 20, 2011

    How can i update the firmeware plis kindly tell me.

Sup ive bin told if you get a new battery and charge it ova night it works

Posted on May 02, 2008

The first thing I would suggest is getting a new battery for your phone and testing that out. to do so what you can try is going into your local provider store and asking them to test another battery. if it works GREAT all you need to do is buy a simple battery rather then repairing the phone. Also try a SEUS off the website www.sonyericsson.com go to support and then to ur phone and select sony ericsson update service.

are you sure there is power in the battery?
If you do, try to dismantle the battary and put it back again after 10 minutes.

That will do the trick
