Question about Sony Ericsson W850i Cellular Phone
When i take a photo with my phone it takes me straight back to the desktop without saving my photo.
the phone is brand new for christmas and is first hand so its not a problem with that!!!
and despite what they say the product is on here it IS a Sony Ericsson W580i
I have found a solution to this problem without sending your phone back and/or paying to get it fixed. Now you can do this on you own personal computer and only takes around 5-10 mins depending on your internet and computer speeds. Ok below are some simple instructions to follow. Please give me a 'Fix ya!' if i helped :)
1. Go to either http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/detailed/updateservice/w580i - to view some information on updating your phone or go to http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/download/1/110/61/1231338335/Update_Service_Setup-184.108.40.206.exe - to download the application straight away.
2. Once you have downloaded and installed the program, open it, the program may download program updates and such - this is normal.
3. Once everything is open it will ask you for your language, so in my case, English (United Kingdom) and just follow the on screen instructions, everything basically self explaniary.
Note: This will wipe everything off the PHONES memory, take your memory card out to make sure you dont lose anything off that. If you think this is going to be a waste of time then you're wrong as this fixed my camera problem..
Also note: It will say your phone has the latest software installed, just click continue anyway as this will wipe your phone and install everything again, FIXED! :)
Hope I helped.

I have a very effective solution of this camera! I tried it many times and it works! All you have to do is when u open the camera then it says ur phone has another apps,go to the main window, lock it by sliding ur phone and quickly slide it open again, u must try a few times but if its not working, try this one: this is same as before but when u go to the main window, lock the phone then wait for a few seconds then slide it again 2 the main window and open the camera. It should work by now! (note: u must try it a few times to get it work.)

I own a SonyEricsson W580i phone and i am having problem with my phone camrea,
When i press the camera button or start camera from the menu it opens but shows black screen it doesn't show any picture mean to say doesn't show anything infront of it before capturing.
I have tried the master reset of the phone as well as the software(firmware) upgrade of the phone too but didn't solve my problem.
Can anyone help me out solving my problem?

My problem with W580i's camera is WAY WORST. I dont even risk to go to the camera because everytime i do it shows the gray screen with the camera on and below "press 0 if you need help" and then i cant press any other button, i cant even shut the phone down, so i have to take the buttery off and then put it on again so i can open my mobile -.- What a drug... Sometimes i press the up shorcut by mistake and my mobile freezes again o.o I need to buy a new mobile -.-'

It sounds like your phones firmware has become corrupted. Back up everything and perform a master reset. If that doesn't help then reflash the phone's firmware with the Sony Ericsson Update Service.

I had to return mine to Sony for a warranty repair. The phone came back with paperwork indicating that there was a software problem. Everything works fine now. the repair only took 3 weeks.

My w580 also had this problem. I tried flashing, different memory cards, everything. Rip the front cover off and try poking the camera ribbon about. Secure it in position with a small amount of bluetack underneath the top of where the screen sits so that it cant move., but be very gentle with it.
This solved the problem for me.

How much was the repair

Dude, I had the same problem. But in 2 days the phones camera worked again!! I wonder whats the problem.... then after a few days this problem started again. The solution is open your camera and leave it open for a minute the try to capture some pictures. It worked for me. But this solution only lasted a few days for me then same problem started again. If this works you have to do it every time when you want to take pictures. I still finding for solution that fix this problem forever.
