Question about Sony Ericsson Z525a Cellular Phone

Retrieve files from sony 525a with blank screen?

My sony 525a has the white screen thing going on like some of you explained. I didn't see any solutions to the problem so I will ask if there is anyway to retrieve the files on your phone when you can't see what the crap you are doing??? Is there any pc connection that can read this phone or anything that will pull these files to another source? Samsung makes a phone that can read all your files and list them on that phone without consent from the other bluetooth BUT your bluetooth has to be on... in which mine is not... and i cant find a manual online for that phone so i can atleast see what buttons to push (i can't remember) to turn my bluetooth on. Any suggestions... on a online user manual... or how to get my files off this phone?

To retrieve your numbers you would need to follow these key strokes...

center, toggle down (1 time), center, toggle up (2 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center (3 times)

then wait for quite some time...it takes a while to copy all of the contacts...I would say anywhere from 5 to 10 mins...

this should work to save your contacts.

To save your pictures (and any other data you might want to retrieve) you could buy Sony's data cableretrieve files from sony 525a with blank screen? - 2.gif for the z525a. I haven't tried this but it should work since that is what the cable is for.

Its called a DCU-60 USB data cable, and is listed as being compatible with the z525a.


to turn on the bluetooth: center, toggle down (2 times), toggle left (1 time), center, toggle left (4 times), center (2 times). then the return button 3 times to go back to the "main screen". hope this helps

Hello, i took some pictures a few days back, but theres some problem while retreiving some of the images....the image for the particular pictures having problem shows a blue blank screen with file...


Best way is to download the pictures to a computer through a card reader (optional). The blue blank screen could be deleted images using the garbage can icon. Retrieving those images can be done but it cost to have a recovery program used and there is no grantee that the images can be extracted because the card my have been written over or formatted. Once you have your images saved to a computer the memory card should be loaded bak into the camera and the memory card formatted to give a clean working surface for the camera to write new files to.

Retrieval of contacts from my phone after the screen goes white


Hi,

Firstly, did you try removing the battery from the phone and leaving it out overnight? This might solve you white screen issue. Secondly, is your phone able to boot into file transfer mode? The final solution would be to flash your phone to fix the firmware and then you will have access to your data. Here is more info:

It talks about the W850 but it applies to the K800 as well. Good luck.

White screen


Unfortunately this seems to be a problem that happens to all sony ericsson z525a phones before too long. (And it seems sometimes it happens on the anniversary of the expiration of any and all warranties)

I do have some codes for running service tests on the sony z525 but with a blank screen they wont do you much good. anyway..

I'll post them here and let you know that when I tried them on my phone (when the screen worked) they did exactly what they were supposed to. You can test the screen...but only if the screen is working.

Unfortunately none of these codes will work if you have a phone with a blank screen...

THANKS SONY

Nokia anyone?

To check the IMEI# = * # 06 #
Secret Service Menu= > * < < * < * (< is left, and > is right)
To reach last dialed numbers= 0 then #
Info about Simlock= < * * < (use with caution)

again...none of these seemed to fix the problem of the blank screen...but if you should get another z525a you can use these commands to do what they're listed to do....until the screen goes blank....
Now, to retrieve your numbers you would need to follow these key strokes...

center, toggle down (1 time), center, toggle up (2 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center (3 times)

then wait for quite some time...it takes a while to copy all of the contacts...I would say anywhere from 5 to 10 mins...

this should work to save your contacts.

To save your pictures (and any other data you might want to retrieve) you could buy Sony's data cable2.gif for the z525a. I haven't tried this but it should work since that is what the cable is for.

Its called a DCU-60 USB data cable, and is listed as being compatible with the z525a.


You could also try getting a T6 Torx bit screwdriver and taking it appart to replace the flex cable that runs to the screen...but I would suggest getting all the data off the phone first.

Blank Screen - Sony Ericsson Z525a


The fix for the Ericsson z520/z525 White Screen of Death (WSOD) is to buy a new flex cable and replace it. You can get one off eBay for like $10 after shipping.

Taking apart your phone can be a little tricky. You'll need a T6 Torx bit and a little courage. You can use this site as a start. After that, a pair of tweezers and a few photographs to get you back where you started is all you need. I can post a couple pics I took, if there's interest.

Note this only fixes the WSOD case where the phone still can make and receive calls, you just can't see anything on either screen.
