Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman® W880i Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Switching off? Hi, My w880i is continually switching itself off. (10-20 times per day) Ive preformed a master reset, system update, and had it sent for repairs twice with no result. I'm about to kill my service provider (3 mobile for anyone that was interested, never ever sign up with them) as they have made no effort so far to replace my phone, and have given me a major run around trying to avoid the problem. Does anyone know a fix for this or is the phone just a piece of rubbish as I suspect?

Appears there may be a fault between the battery and the handset, definitely faulty, I'd contact sony ericsson themselves and submit the handset for a warranty repair (if it's under a year old this should be free) other than that your options are really just to buy a new one or cancel your contract. re warranty repair, if SE agree to this expect not to see your phone for about a month as it's normally 28 days or longer for these, re 3, yep they're ****, I should know as I used to work for them, hope this helps.

Why does my time2 android tablet keep switching itself on and off?


Please go to time settings and select auto-update time. It will keep updating the time as per your location so that you dont need to worry about time.

Whirlpool Gold Dehumidifier -The lights are all working, no fan? Is there a reset ?

You have what Whirlpool calls a Type 3 Control Panel. If you don't have the unit operating in Continuous Mode, the fan will operate only, when the compressor turns on to extract the humidity, based on the level of extraction you have it set on. If you haven't already,.set the control on Maximum and Continuous Mode.

If that doesn't solve the problem, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit for 15 minutes. After the time has elapsed plug the unit back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Hopefully, the 15 minute timeout, allowed the unit to reset itself and revert back to the original factory settings. If so, you can set the controls as you like.

To further assist you, I have an included a link to your Owner's Manual, in case you have misplaced your. You can download and print it for future reference.

I hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

How do i reset date after battery change? or where can i cet a pdf file a9no calliber number on case or movement but its a timex perpetual with indigo light approx 30 yers old

to reset the date manually, pull the stem out to the second position to reset TIME; manually continue setting time until the date is on the correct day/date.
I had to do this to get back to the proper date when my timex was off by a week. Nothing else worked. 14 times around (twice per 24 hour day) and each time I passed "midnight" the date advanced.

When I turn on my camera, it comes up with "Lens error". What does that mean?

HI. One possible reason for this error is the camera has been switched on and the lens unit is prevented from extending itself. The camera will struggle for a second to extend the lens, then report the problem as a "lens error". I would start by Inspecting the lens for any obvious obstruction, then turn the camera off, then back on again. Usually, simply switching the camera Off and On again will correct this problem. If that doesn't correct the error, Remove and recharge and/or replace the battery. If the error does not clear up right away, leave the battery out of the camera overnight, and try again the next day. You are basically forcing the cameras micro board and chip sector into a reset mode when preforming this procedure.

  • NOTE_ If none of the procedures above produce positive results, I'm afraid that this unit will need to be sent to the manufacture for a serious repair detail, due to mechanical lens failure. There are no user serviceable parts on these units

Navigation System resets itself while driving.

The issue with the Day/Night auto color switching has to do with you light switch wheel. It might be set to the highest setting cuasing the colors not to swicth when your lights come on. Roll the wheel down until it clicks ro gets past a notch. Then when you turn your lights on the auto mode should work.
