This usually means that you are trying to upgrade the wrong version of software. If you upgrade the the CID and relevent software for it at the same time this should cure that problem.

I forgot the phone lock code for my sony ericsson k800i handphone pls some one tell me how and what to do


Ok,
Default 4 Digit user code: 1234 or 0000
THIS WILL WORK! It worked on my K800i and it wasn't even supposed to. FIRST! Download (8.8MB) XS++ From HERE:http://forums.se-nse.net/index.php?showtopic=16338
SECOND! No install. It just runs.
Make sure you have ALL drivers for YOUR phone. That should be under the bettery. Under model... or something like that. HERE! http://www.nodevice.com/driver/company/Sony_Ericsson.html

Take your phone, turn it off. Start this program and click on connect. You'll have 30 seconds to plug your phone into your computer and HOLD C The entire time! (the delete button or 2). If connected, then click at the button: GDFS. There will be a phone lock reset to "0000". Click it. It will take no more than 45 seconds. I promise. Unplug your phone, and vuala! If your phone won't turn on, try pulling out the battery, putting it back and trying again. This program is also good for flashing phones, and putting flash menues on your phone. Also unlocking it and debranding it. GOOD LUCK!

My phone is off each time i switch it on it just blinks and off i was told that it is a software Problem how can i solve it


you'ld have to download pretty good amount of this to do this. Follow step by step to the following procedure:

  • Downloads
    1. USB Flash Driver ( http://rapidshare.com/files/137908666/IS O-8859-1__driver.zip)
    2. XS++ 3.1 Darwin
    Please download all of these files before proceeding.
1.) Converting to CID52 (if required)If XS++ detects a DB2020 CID49 or CID51 phone, it will automatically ask if the user wants to upgrade.
CAUTION!!! If You Upgrade To CID52, You Can Not Revert Back To CID49 Or CID 51.

2) Backing up GDFS
Backing up the GDFS isn't something which necessarily has to be done when flashing firmware, but it is a very good way to ensure you don't damage your phone beyond repair.

Step 1.
Take battery out of phone and put back in (do not turn phone on). Open XS++ and click Connect. Hold down the "C" button on the phones keypad and connect the USB cable. If this is the first time you flash your phone you will need to install the Flash drivers.

Step 2.
Click on the GDFS tab

Step 3.
Click "Backup GDFS" and wait (shouldn't take more than about half a minute).

Step 4.
Done i_bigsmile.gif

3) Flashing the firmware
Step 1.
Take battery out of phone and put back in (do not turn phone on). Open XS++ and click Connect. Hold down the "C" button on the phones keypad and connect the USB cable.

Step 2.
Select the firmwares (make sure you extract them first) by clicking the "..." buttons or simply dragging the file from the explorer to the box (don't get mixed up with FS and MAIN).
Click "Flash" and wait (this takes a while, 6-7 minutes is normal).

Step 3.
Flashing is done, you can breathe now

*) Recovering from a bad flash
*WARNING* flashing a GDFS that did not originally come from that exact handset may have severe consequences. By exact handset I mean your handset, not your friends unlocked handset, YOUR HANDSET!

If a flash goes bad, two things need to be done:
1. You need to flash the firmware for the model you had before (when you did the GDFS backup), and
2. You need to restore GDFS.

For flashing follow from step 3 above. Do the GDFS restore after flashing and customizing the handset.

Step 1.
Take battery out of phone and put back in (do not turn phone on). Open XS++ and click Connect. Hold down the "C" button on the phones keypad and connect the USB cable. If this is the first time you flash your phone you will need to install the Flash drivers

Step 2.
Click on the GDFS tab


Step 3.
Select the backup you wish to restore. Click “Write GDFS”.

Step 4.
Done

White screen of death?


OK, based on your description, you have a corrupt operating system. You're immediately pre-WSOD. I know because I've been there..

If you're good at computers, you can reflash your phone yourself. Once I found a good tutorial, and got over my fear of bricking the phone, it was quite easy - mine corrupted twice, and I've reflashed twice..

Some claim to have been able to do backup of the files on the phone. It might be possible since yours isn't quite WSOD yet.

You need the k800i drivers on your computer first. They should be on the CD that came with the phone. You absolutely need to acquire those drivers before trying to flash it!

Second, you need the phone to USB cable. Any USB cable for that generation of SE phones will do.

Then you should do a backup of the GDFS. This is useful for two reasons - finding out what your current firmware version is, and other info that resides in there that is useful when reflashing. The phone book is also in there, but the text messages are lost.

Then, you need the software for the phone, and unless you have an existing backup, you need to acquire that from a website. Then flash the phone, and then import the GDFS backup you did before flashing.

Here's a tutorial. I think this is what I used (or similar). I used the software mentioned here, at least:
http://www.esato.com/board/viewtopic.php?topic=156090

The last time I flashed mine, I got a software version much newer than my original. A lot of things were different. You can actually flash it with k810i software as well, if you're adventurous (better camera software).

K880i white flashing screen


White Screen Of Death. Quite common on Sony Ericsson phones. My K800i does it every time its battery shuts off while it's on (so I try to make sure it doesn't). You need to (google terms) reflash sony ericsson phone Maybe also first backup GDFS The photos, except those on the memory card, and other stuff will be lost, I'm afraid. But good news is that your contact list can likely be saved by backing up the GDFS.
