White line of death

I have simialr problem walkman was working fine then just stopped walking while i was out. it would turn on and show the walkman logo. then it goes straight to a white screen with black line across bottom then it switches to black screen with white line across the middle
none of the controls work it wont turn off unless i press the reset button and goes through above routine if i turn it back on.
tried plugging it into my comp. i get the ping noise to say i plugged usb in but it doesnt show up in my computer or device manager..
im not sure what else to try i think next i'll run the batteries dwn see if that helps.. any suggestions anyone?

Same problem here. The firmware update won't work as it searches for the device when it's plugged in, but can't find it and gives up after a while. I didn't have any joy trying to get into recovery mode using the volume button. Any other advice?

    My player is back up and running! I left it running on the white line screen until it turned itself off. Put it back in the usb port, with no connection indication and after a few hours the charging screen is back and the red LEDs are flashing (which I had previously turned off in the settings... date has reset as well, it seems to have reset itself) and all music is still present. Hopefully it was a one time glitch...

I also have the same white line of death, did you manage to solve yours? The solutions suggested didn't work because the player won't register on a computer. I'm sure you found the same problem!

Yeah to fix this simply get yourself a white line of fun ie. coke. Blow it, turn on the CD player and then you won't care about your damn walkman.
Good luck ;)

Acer laptop display goes off after some second


Try booting into safe mode. Chances are that you have set the screen resolution and refresh rate to some value that the LCD cannot handle. That is why it works until Windows takes over. Once you are in Safe Mode you can get things under control.

My phone turns on, the keyboard lights show up and the sony ericsson logo comes up the it crashes and goes blank. The logo kinda goes all fuzzy and then rolls up the screen and then when it is plugged into...


Sound like you may have a bad board or firmware. First thing to try is to go to sonyericsson.com and see if there is a firmware update online. If you can get it to update that may fix your phone. hope this helps
