    Have you tried removing the battery for 10 minutes and then putting it back in and switching on your phone?

Sure you don't mean the little red light directly below the the camera button?
Have you got another battery as this is usually a sign that the battery really is very low.
the only other thing it might be is a corrupted EROM which means yo may have to reflash the phone using A2 uploader

Try to take off the battery
take off the memory card
put back the battery
turn on the cellphone

Its either there is a broken file on the memory card or in the internal memory
Or try updating the firmware of the camera
Go to the Sony Erickson website to download the updater

I plugged for the first time my laptop on to the VGA input tv screen showed a sign that read something like: no signal, tv will turn off. then it switched off and now it wont turn on on the on/off switch...

There is a button on your laptop for switching from laptop screen to external screen, This button is usually in the top row of special function buttons, did you press that as it will tell your computer you are connected to another monitor. Also some times you have to leave the monitor off for about 5 minutes so it will reset itself.

Phone wont turn on

Use a volt meter (may try one at radio shack) to see if there is any voltage in the battery. Damaged batterys will sometimes short and the meter will tell if you need a new battery.

Beep 3 times turns green yellow then blinks red then turns to a solid red wont turn on wont give me game

3 Solid Red lights usually means that a cable is unplugged. Check all cables (unplug and plug back in) may need to replace power cable if issue is still ocurring. If it is 3 Flashing red lights, this is known as the Red Rings of Death, i.e. your XBOX is dead and needs to be completely replaced.

Cell phone (Sony Ericsson W910i) turns itself off every 30 seconds

i have one too and it always turns itself off at least 15 times a day and a red light comes on at the back and the screen is blank. It hangs up on people half way through phone calls, and tells me i have messages wich i don't and comes up with blank messages which i can't delete!! Today it has done the exact same thing again but it has been frozen for over 3hours i have tried taking the battery out and nothing works :(

T-mobile dash wont turn on

In my experience when getting a phone wet your only choice is to let it sit. It could take a few days or a month but soon or later they usually fire back up.
