To connect to a PC you need to install Sony Ericsson PC Suite. If you have installed PC Suite from the disc provided in the box with the phone, you need to update it to the latest version for your phone.
Try to get to the menu to do a factory settings reset. That might solve the screen problem.

    Phone not turning on, LED flash red when you press the on/off button, does your phone use a DCU-60 usb cable. Hopefully the following steps will help you out:


    Remove the battery, SIM card and the memory stick from the phone and then replace the battery but DO NOT turn it on.

    2. If you're operating Windows XP or earlier use your PC suite however with Vista you might have to download Sony Ericsson's Update Service software from the Sony Ericsson website

    3. Then you'll have to download: WontanClient server, open it and allow the program to update. NOTE: you must leave the login box empty

    4. Plug the USB cable into the computer but not the phone

    5. Press start in Wontan

    6. Press 2 and 5 Simultaneously

    7. Plug your phone in and hopefully the phone will to reboot

    8. Take out the battery for a few minutes and now your phone is hopefully working again.

How do I move pictures from my lg expression to my computer without a memory card in it?

It wont recognize the pictures on the phone without a third party memory card installed in the slot below where the usb cable plugs in. Go buy a memory card first, then it will work.

My apple iphone USB Device Not Recognize what will

Go to and download and install itunes, then reconnect the phone. If you already have itunes do this, but realize this will clear the info from your iphone, but if you have the info in itunes, it will sync back anyway. So just know, this does a factory reset:

Turn iphone off by holding power button on top left and sliding the red bar to shutdown.

Now, take the usb cable and have it not connected to the computer, but connect it to your iphone, so now you have the usb cable just connected to the iphone which is completely off.

Now, hold down the circle button on the iphone, and keep it held down. Then insert the usb cable into the computer, while still holding the button down. After a minute or two, you will get a screen on the iphone with a white usb wire pictured on the screen, and if you did it right, the connection should then pop up on windows. After you do the restore, you can then use itunes and plug in the usb like normal, all should be fine.

good luck!

Blank Screen

1. Put your iphone in the dock, with the USB cable disconnected from your computer.

2. Make sure the phone is off (The only way I got the phone to turn off is to hold the power button + the home button for like 15 seconds)

3. Once you know the phone is off, press and hold the HOME button then plug in the USB cable to your computer, keep holding the HOME button the whole time.

4. Next it should put a Yellow Triangle on your iphone and it should say "connect to itunes".

5. Now restore your phone, and you should be GOOD TO GO!

Hanged? or flex?


Try taking out the battery overnight and replace and try to turn on. If this doesn't help, then try updating your phone's firmware.

Iphone jail break

Try rebooting the iPhone while it is plugged into your computer with iTunes running. Hold down the home button and the sleep button for a few seconds to reboot it. iTunes should then recognize the iPhone as being in recovery mode and you can then use iTunes to restore your firmware.

W850 flashing

Does the flashing screen is it works or not? If it works its the LCD thats making the flashing if it dosent its the software problem. If check that... try charging it.. if its charged its not the software problem..The LCD can be changed from a phone shop or tecnical shop and if you have some skills you can change it yourself but its best to bring it to the shop.

Hope this help!
