It could be the LCD sreen, the white screen is the backlight with no data They are very cheap on Ebay about £8 and no soldering is required. Checkout how to take K800i apart on something like YouTubeits just showing a plain white screen. phone wont  - 2_bing.gif. It is only 4 T6 torx screws and 2 philips screws. Take the front cover off and remove and replace the LCD screen and reassembly. Ground yourself, work slowly and you will be fine. Worth a try, if that does not work then you can try the software route but I feel it is more likely to be the hardware. Take your choice and good luck

    Just found out it IS possible to rectify with Wotan Server to repair the EROM which is checked before firmware is flashed. You will have to buy credits and a data cable. Follow instructions pressing key 2 and 5 together. You don't have to but you may as well update the firmware as well after this process. If not it's the screen

This is almost certainly a firmware issue with the phone (Though it could, very rarely, be a fault with the screen or its connection). Reinstalling the firmware on your phone should fix the issue.

By using Wotan Server (http://www.wotanserver.com/en/) I fixed a similar fault on my girlfriend's phone. It didn't work at first, but I charged the handset again and it worked then. It does cost about £6-£7 to use unfortunately (paid up front) but never falsely charged me when it failed.

If you're happy to risk the £7 then I'd definitely try it - better than buying a new handset if it works.

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.

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 www.gsmhosting.net. 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?
