Question about Sony Ericsson K800i Cellular Phone

Failed update on a K800i

I recently attempted an upgrade via a pc on a sony ericsson K800i. Everything seemed to be going fine until it reached 92-93% when it seemed to stop making progress. After a while an update failed message came up. Upon trying again it says the software is up to date however the backlight is not lighting up upon incoming calls or key press. I have heard the "recovery mode" mention and yet have not seen anywhere that this option is available. Maybe you could shed some light on this matter and is there anything I can do to correct the problem ?

Many Thanks,

Dan Stroud.

To get into recovery mode you need to hold the C button as you connect it to the usb cable - usb cable plugged to pc first.

What software are you using? SE Update tool or wotan or SEtools or cruiser?

Operation failed


In make/receive/search time your mobile consume more power.
in that time the phone not get the needed power, so it switch off.
  1. Sol. Refix your sim and battery
  2. check your battery contacts to phone, it may loose contact, clean using a rubber on both battery and phone contact
  3. Check your sim contacts also
  4. Check your battery status, go to sony ericsson authorised dealer for check it used original battery some time you will get a duplicate battery,

For my k800i the games and applications folders will not open


Hi,

Back up everything and master reset your phone. That should solve the problem. If not, then you need to flash the firmware of the phone (you can use SEUS - Sony Ericsson Update Service).
