    My w850i won't turn on, when charger is plugged in it just has a red light on the power button. LCD screen is cracked but before I replace it I'm wondering if its the phone and not just the screen why it won't turn on. I've tried charging it over night and still has the red power button. Also Davinci or any other flashing software won't recognise the phone when USB cable is plugged in.

Well i have a sony ericsson w850i and it wont turn on and when i plug it in to charge it it has this red light on the top on the on/off button it doesnt flash or anything it's just a still red light. Does...

the phone might be completely flat. For you to test for that, you will need to leave it for about an hour or two to see if it will come on.

Then if it doesn't,that means the battery cell is too weak to power up the phone.

You will need replace battery.

Take care.

Iam useing sony ericsson w850i for past 1 year.suddenly one day it was switched off if i seem to turn on it is flashing the red light.and now iam not useing that phone any ideas to turn on my phone back.


from my own experience and idea, I think that flashing light indicates low battery.

This is usually common with Sony ericsson phone, it flashes a red light once battery is low and you want to power is on.

Maybe should test your phone with another battery.

All the best.

Sony ericsson w580i

the EROM file on your phone is corrupted that is why it just flashes red and not boot-up, you need to have the EROM reflash for the phone to work again.

I can on my w850i phone

Red blinking power button means low battery.

You'd better charge it... By the way, Li-ion batteries should not be drained completely. They will live more if you don't let your phone completely drain the battery before recharging it.

Hope this helps.
