My SE W910i won't turn on properly!

There's something wrong with my Sony Ericsson W910i, I only bought it for less than 2 months, yesterday, I tried to turn my phone on, but somehow it won't, let me be more specific, as I push the power button, the phone vibrate and lid as usual, the sony ericsson logo appears for about 3 seconds, than the phone goes off again, but after a few seconds without any iput, the phone screen lid again with a vibration, but not any logo, few secs after, the phone goes off again, it just kept looping and looping. I had to take the battery out to actually stop it from "looping". At first I thought it was because my battery ran out, I put it on charge for a couple of hours, as it says "Fully Charged" on screen, I unpluged the cable as usual, but when I switched it back on again, it didn't make any difference.
Please can someone help me!

Re: my SE W910i won't turn on properly!

I had this same problem just earlier this week. I looked somewhere on the web that updating the phone's software/firmware might be the solution to something similar, and it worked for me too.
On the Sony Ericsson website, go to support, and put in your phone model, then it'll bring up all the useful things for it. What you want is the update service software:
That gets installed on your computer, then you follow the instructions to apply it to your phone via the USB. It wipes the memory of your phone, so numbers and such stored on there will go (and if you can't turn it on, you can't avoid this). The memory card isn't effected.

Reboot it every now and then. There's no solution ... you may call sony ericsson to air your problem IF someone will ever listen. or Use it as a PDA and camera. but never as a phone..We had a defective unit like yours. We trusted the brand, but it proves otherwise. sad thing is the warranty is 24 hours only on a brand new phone, we still bought it... But as i've said, we "trusted" the brand Sony Ericsson as we already proven the excellent P800 and P900i. but that's not the case with the latest phones of SE.

Sony ericsson w910i

It is a fault with this phone (the first batch that was released). Some people have reported that a software update from the Sony Ericsson website helps but my phone is flat and won't stay on long enough. It is also resetting the same way yours is so an update is just not possible.

They will need to be sent in to a service centre which I'm going to check out tomorrow.

Sony Ericsson P1i - won't start up

I am upset over Sony Ericsson’s PC suite for SmartPhone. I’ve had Sony Ericsson’s P1i for a couple of months now and honestly the phone is great.
I have a 1GB memory stick on my P1i which has every almost every function those items have. In fact now I have a QWERTY pad along with me all the time.

Well everything was perfect until I decided to upgrade my software. So I did these following steps:
Installed Sony Ericsson PC Suite for Smartphone, which was included in the box.
Downloaded and installed the Sony Ericsson P1i Update Service software.
Used the Backup Manager that came along with SE PC Suite to backup every single content of my phone.
Ran Update Service following the steps provided in the software.
Lastly tried to Restore my backup onto my phone.
Guess what? It didn’t work!!! Ran a full backup and the PC Suite froze at like the 30th percent with a message “Mobile phone not responding….”. I selected all these to restore:
Unified Inbox
3rd Party Applications
Bull Poop!!! I tried to run it 3 times and still didn’t work. When did the phone stop responding? When the PC Suite rebooted the phone and P1i screen prints “Restore in progress”. Its a piece of **** I tell you.
I googled in hope that someone would shed light on me. That was when I discovered previous versions of Sony Ericsson SmartPhones had a similar problem too. In case you are wondering, the phone models I am talking about are SE’s P990i and M600i and their variations. I am so bloody disappointed. I can’t believe it could hang on me when I feel the phone had been great all the time.
Well now comes to the shitty part of trouble shooting. I can’t possibly let go of my backups. I’ve already lost all my Contacts and stuff 2 months ago. Can’t let this happen again. So I tried to restore one item at a time.
I went down the list of priorities as such:
Contacts - Success!
Calendar - Success!
Notes - Success!
Unified Inbox - Success!
Settings - Success!
Multimedia - Success!
3rd Party Applications - Success!
Wierd isn’t it? It works when you try to restore one item at a time but not when you select all. How can this be? Software problem!!! Developers at Sony should look into this. I didn’t have this problem with Nokia E65 when I helped my brother do an upgrade.
What’s the point of having a full restore function when it doesn’t work??? And if the problem had been surfaced by the users of the previous models, why isn’t the problem solved still? Can’t possibly blame Symbian for Sony Ericsson’s PC Suite, could we?…
so i gone to sony service they told me that there is a fault in circuit board and it has to be raplaced with a new one i had given in mulund service centre
till now 12 days had passed they not given me my p1i saying that the circuitboard is sent to chennai and there is not extar manufacturing of board due to this we cant give the phone now they are saying come within 3days i am fadeup with these sony service and p1i
i am requesting sony to look on this matter and tofind solution on it by upgrading there new upgrading version

How to retrieve battery

Turn the phone over so that you read Sony Ericsson properly on the back cover. Place your thumb on it and slide left. Now press on the bottom corner of the battery nearest the camera. This should cause the battery to tilt up and you can easily pull it out, otherwise there is something wrong with your phone.
