Re: sony ericsson k800i

I am sad to inform you that you are experiencing the dreadful Sony Ericsson WSOD but the good news is that it is usually repairable. Try taking out the battery overnight, then the next day put the battery back in and try to turn the phone on. If this doesn't help, try to reflash the phone with SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service). If this doesn't work then the phone needs to reflashed either by a service center or you can do it at home ( Good luck.

K880i white flashing screen

White Screen Of Death. Quite common on Sony Ericsson phones. My K800i does it every time its battery shuts off while it's on (so I try to make sure it doesn't). You need to (google terms) reflash sony ericsson phone Maybe also first backup GDFS The photos, except those on the memory card, and other stuff will be lost, I'm afraid. But good news is that your contact list can likely be saved by backing up the GDFS.

Sony ericsson k800i Not turning on

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.

Wont switch on

There is also a possibility of moisture as well. Sony Ericsson's are notorious for going white screen when there is moisture or corrosion in the phone.

To be completely honest regarding Flashing the phone... it is not easy and has many steps. I would recommend going to There, search for forums on flashing the K800i software. To flash the phone, you will need a Cruiser Box, the correct cable, and the full software for that phone and your service provider. The K800i is DB2020, which is Sony Ericsson's most up to date encryption.

Believe me though, there is way to much involved in flashing the phone to post here. How long have you had it and if there is no moisture, have you considered a warranty exchange through Sony Ericsson?

Dead K800i

Sony Ericssons are unfortunatell very sensitive to software errors. I had the same problem and it just wouldn't turn on or the screen would flash white and it would turn off again.And it wasn't the battery. You need to take to a service/ repair center to reload your phone's Flash software
