I got the say problem 2 days back. I read some pots in forums. This is what worked for me. First fully charge the phone some. Get a friend's phone or something. Then get ready with the data cable and your computer with internet.
Goto Sony ericsson site.
search for w810i SEUS Sonys update system.
At the bottom result it says"Sony Ericsson - Support - Update Service Compatible with K510i W810i W200i .
Click on that and dowload the program. At the right corner it shows the phones which supports it.
install the program and run it.
do exactly what it says.
it worked for me. I got all my contacts and messages back.
If you are seeing a white screen 1 of 2 things has happened. Theconnector for the LCD may have come loose or the LCD itself has gonebad.
Checking out and replacing the LCD screen on the Sony W810i is a pretty straight forward procedure.
Iwould take the phone apart and check the lcd connector first. Reseat itand try it out. If it is still white, your next step is to replace theLCD screen. This should then take care of the problem. A new LCD screenruns about 30 dollars from Ebay.
Take a look at the following link to see instructions and links to buy the lcd screen

I hope that helps out
I had the same problem. I got mine from EBAY. I took it to a Cingular/ATT store. They removed the battery door and noticed that there was no "water damage indicator sticker", so they said they can only assume there had been water damage and the sticker was removed. Luckily the Ebay seller is handling the matter quickly. So what my point is, is check under the battery door for a white round sticker. White is good. Red or any similar shade indicates water damage. Otherwise goodluck!!
my w810i phone is flashing white screen and cannot turn on
it is asking for favorite place which i have forgot.
