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.

My computer is not recognizing the drive when I plug it in.

Hi did you try in other computer if yes and still didnt work do you listen any noise on the hard drive .
another thing to do to be sure that the usb ports are working fine in your computer its not been disabled bu bios or an antivirus please plug a flash drive or other hard drive in the computer and see if it gets recognized if yes then your system dosent have any issue .and check the hard drive if it dosent get recognized in the other computer also then may be the partitiontable is corrupt or your iomega hard drive case has problem.
To remove data from your hard drive in the worse case u need to remove the hard drive and plug it to the system directly and check

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!

Make sure you are using the original USB cable that came supplied with the GoGear, and then try the volume + method again. If the volume + method doesn't work, then there is a problem with the USB port recognziing the device being plugged in - or, the player was physically damaged.
