Re: wont turn on
You are experiencing sony's white screen of death, its commonon SE models - its a problem in their software / firmware. You will need to have it flashed by a professional service center, as it is a DB2020 and would require about an hour of work. If it's under warranty bring it to the original store for an exchange or free repair

What you need to do is to first check if the battery is properly charged. Insert it in another phone and try to power it on, if it turns the phone on and stays on for a while, then it means the battery is alright, but if it does not power it on, then it means the battery is weak and cannot power the phone on beyond the loading screen.
Also you need to test the phone by trying to use another well charged battery in the phone to see if will turn on, if it does turn on, then you know it is the battery that is faulty, but if it does not turn on, then you know the problem is from the phone.
First get the phone flashed before you can commence further repairs on the phone.
Hope this information helped.
My sons phone was doing that and I put it in a bag of rice just to try anything to make it work. Because he has had it for less than a year. And it started working after an hour. I took the back off and left the battery in the phone. I hope it works for you. I would leave it in the bag for a few hours if it starts to work. <!-- from fixya rte -->
Possible to rectify with Wotan Server to repair the EROM which is checked before firmware is flashed. You will have to buy credits and a data cable. Follow instructions pressing key 2 and 5 together. You may as well update the firmware after this process. Google around you will find this is an issue
I had a similar issue, whereby my phone would turn on for 30 secs then the screen would go white and the phone would switch it self off then on.
After a lot of messing around even throwing the phone around the place. I took out the memory card and the phone worked fine. When I put the card back in, the phone started misbehaving again, so I guess the card is knackered.
i do to and i cant get another fone as i cant afford to get a new one . mine occured wen i was reciving a video from bluetooth it froze then i took out the batttery then put it back in but wen i turned it on i had a white screen and also now wen i turn it on it dosnt turn on at all then only thing it eva showns wen it is on is a white screen. - bloody hell i wrote an essay
same thing happened to mine last year--you need to update the software: http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/detailed/updateservice/w580i?lc=en&cc=us your phone should have come with a usb/computer hookup wire (it's gray). Download it onto your phone. It turns out that this same problem happened the other day (so I am downloading it now). it's the only problem ive had on this phone... hope it helps
