Ok, so whoever said you need the flash, shold flash their brains! Your backlights are burnt on the LCD - to change it costs about $80 because you need a new LCD screen at the same time.

Hi! My w880i is not charging with any se charger yet its charging if i usea usb :( any solution for this one? thanks

What I have found with my Walkman Phone is that the springiness of the contacts on the charger have degraded over time to the point where when I plug my phone in, I have to press firmly and wiggle/adjust the connection to the phone until the phone indicates that it is charging.

If there was a problem with your phone's battery, or the charging contacts on your phone, then the USB cord would not work. If you take a close look at your charger's connection you will probably see that the contacts do not all appear to be the same length anymore; this is why the cord isn't working.

I hope that helps.
