    My SE 800i recently starting acting strangely. The screen would freeze, then go off then back on and finally turned itself off and since then I have not been able to start the phone. I have tried a different battery from a friends 800i, tried the update from the Sony Ericsson site using the data cable, but I just cannot get any response from the phone. It just will not turn on. There is no flashing light anywhere to give me a glimmer of hope that it is perhaps in a Coma. Lol. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers, Booty. :o)

You will need a firmware flash to see if this will recover the phone BUT YOU WILL LOSE ALL INFORMATION ON THE PHONE.
if that does not repair the issue then you can try looking at the battery contacts.
if you drop it in to any shop that does mobile repairs then they will rectify the issue

You need new battery for sure.When you install the new battery, check it with a volt meter (D.C.) that it charges at 14V +/- 0.5V at idle with your high beam on. If it doesn't, you need a regulator/rectifier as well.

Razr v3x screen suddenly won't work even with phone turned on. Yesterday it was working just fine then this morning lcd is dead. I can hear it when somebody sends me an sms but I cannot read it since...

check the oem ribbon that runs to screen. the design of phone hinge is faulty, and usually cuts the ribbon that runs up to the screen after months of openings and closings,preventing it from lighting up. sometimes its the earpiece wires on the ribbon that get cut which prohibits u from hearing anything when u hold the phone to your ear and u have to switch to speaker...bummer..sooo my friend, CHECK THE RIBBON.
