Question about Sony Ericsson K610i Cellular Phone
I used the phone for 2 weeks and i was using a t mobile sim card so i put my 3g sim card it worked went on the homepage worked then i switched it off and it neva switched back on instead it shows the flashing light on top every time i switched it on and it dont charge aswell took it to the shop and they said that it is a software problem inside so please help me
Crazygirl_ut gave a perfect response.
I switched my fone off to chang my battery and my 610i wouldn't switch back on - couldn't believe it. I have done this hundreds of times - so frustrating. It just blinked 6 or seven red flashes at the top of the phone. I pulled out memory stick and swapped sim cards - nothing worked.
Then I jumped on the net and found the above solution - it worked - my phone is now fully operational again and it cost me $11.75 australian dollars.
A couple of points I found.
When you go to the website for wotan server and download the guide it tells you to use the service key.
When you follow the link to find out what the service key is, it says its the "C" key. Same as when you run the flash upgrade software - it also suggests holding the C key when you plug in the phone.
It only worked when I held down the 2 and 5 keys as mentioned above.
I also had to download the driver software when I first plugged in the phone and the found new hardware wizard started.
Lastly the only other thing I noticed was the pdf guide said not to purchase a credit until you ran the software to check compatability etc but the software wouldn't work until after I purchased the credit and entered my username and password.
A word of caution - my username and password email ended up in my junk email box, which I forgot to check for ages so I thought after I had spent my money they never emailed me!
I was all ready to send them a complaint until I twigged and found the email.
Good luck anyone else who tries this. Even if your phone is under warranty it's not bad value to pay your money and flash it yourself, in terms of time and effort having to take your phone in for repairs and get a replacement while yours is being fixed etc. This took me all up about 2 hours with dinner and other distractions getting in the way. I didn't have to waste my lunch hour dashing to some remote repair facility and waste my petrol and then do the same when picking it up again.
I'm happy!!! Thanks Crazygirl_ut

My phone just died as well about a week ago. It flashed a white screen, so I took the battery out to restart it and when I went to restart it, it just flashed a red light about 6 times. I went to a couple phone repair shops and they were quoting me anywhere from $50-$150 in repair fees. How frustrating! Well i decided i'd scour the net to see if there was viable solution that was cheaper. And I struck a goldmine! I just wanted to share my solution with you and any other people that are having this stupid problem....as it seems common with this particular model. What makes me even more frustrated is the horrendous price people wanted to fix it for. I just barely fixed my phone by myself for....get this....$11 AUD (7 Euros) How amazing is that! Now I will go through the steps you need to do to get your phone working hopefully.
1. Download Wotan Client from the following website:
2. Buy 1 Credit via paypal from their website...it's 7 Euros and they will email you your login details for the Wotan Client App. You can also download a get started guide to get you started http://www.wotanserver.com/Getting_Start...
3. Install the Wotan Client and open it up.
4. At the bottom right, put in your login details.
5. Plug into your Computer the DCU-60 Gray USB Cable that comes with your phone.
6. VERY VERY IMPORTANT, Remove your sim card and your memory card you have in your phone before you connect your phone.
With your Sony Ericsson K610i phone, press down and hold the 2 and 5 number keys simultaneously while connecting the phone to the USB Cable.
7. When you hear the standard sound of new hardware connecting to your computer, quickly click START on the Wotan Client on the top right.
8. It should say phone found, and it updated my EROM and it said done after about 10 seconds.
9. You can then disconnect your phone and take the battery out for about an hour before you try to power it back up.
This program was a lifesaver! And i'd hate for anyone to have to get gipped or ripped off by the Mobile Repair shops around, so that's why I wanted to post this, as it worked with me.
Hopefully this will work for you as well. Don't let anyone tell you it's a hardware issue! It's a firmware issue...
Alright Mate happy repairing to you!
