Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i Cellular Phone
When I turn on my Sony Ericcsson W810i, I do get the message 'Insert SmartChip' on screen with no SIM card. The cell phone is locked.
I have an unlock code but due to this message I couldnt unlock the phone.
Please advice, TIA
I have the same phone, and was getting the same "Insert Smartchip" message.
I seem to have fixed it by taking off the cover on the back of the phone (the part with the Sony Ericsson name on it), taking out the large battery, and gently pushing the little blue Smartchip back into its chamber with my fingernail, as it must have come loose somehow. The Smartchip "clicks" into the chamber when it is in there correctly.
I put it all back together, turned the phone off, then back on. When it came on, it worked again.
Hope this helps!

I have a SE z300 and when I was getting this problem I opened it, sprayed some WD40 on some of the corroded parts. Tighened up some loose pieces, wiped off all the liquid closed it back up and everything worked.
