You need to have the phone fully service....take it to a mobile service center and have them service it and have the phone's camera replaced and to stop the phone from crashing...have them either update the phones' firmware or reflash the original firmware that it came with.

The lights are coming on but nothing after


For this problem, first, try to reprogram the phone on the sony ericsson website if the problem still persist bring the phone to a tech then just ask them to clean the board of the phone for the buttons. The worst case here is that the Flex/Ribbon is already broken

Try also removing the battery of the phone then clean the metal receiver of the phone and the metal panel on the battery (you could use pencil eraser *sounds weird but it worked for me)

Hope this Help

Automatic camera

The camera buttons on the side are jammed down. This happens with the W850i and is a design fault. The reason you notice it randomly is because your hand will often brush off the camera buttons which are now so sensitive that the lightest touch will set them off. Same happened with mine but instead it switched the phone off when they were touched... When I realised, I popped the buttons out and stayed away from them as you can still take pictures using the touch screen :) I have the official repair document on the phone and it's easy to remove / replace the side pad but why bother. If it's contract then it's a well known problem and you should return but not accept the same model as a replacement as it will fail also. If return is not an option, then remove the side button and the phone is otherwise quite robust.

Try these simple trick to find out yor remote control working or not....
Point the remote control towards the Camera of a Mobile Camera phone,with the camera on. While pressing remote, we can see a light (Infra Red) coming from its IR LED through the Mobile Camera if the Remote is working.
If the problem with the component that mentioned by you, write down the Number written on that and replace it with the same by the help of a Soldering Iron.
Also see the writing near to it for finding out what the component is.... For eg. C=Capacitor, R=Resistor, TR or Q=Transistor, IC=Chip, D=Diode etc.
