Question about Phones
Sorry I don't even know if you guys can help me... but I'm having a problem with my Sony Ericsson mobile phone.
So here's the problem:
My phone turned itself off then rebooted. Upon rebooting, I could no longer access messages or anything. Whenever I tried it said "Operation Failed". So I rebooted. Didn't fix it. I took the battery and USIM out. Didn't fix it. So I turned to the internet for help.
A LOT of other people have had the same problem. They recommended updating to the newest software to fix the problem. So I downloaded the Update Service. Yeah, it said my phone needed the newest software, so it downloaded it. Then it went to install it onto the phone... my phone hasn't turned on since.
Now all I get is one vibration, a black screen with a backlight, and the red camera flash-light on the back of the phone. There is no splash screen. No graphics. Nothing. It sits like that constantly.
Is there any way to reset the phone without having to get into the menu system? Because at the moment my phone won't even turn on.
If that's not an option, do you have another solution to this problem?
Thanks for your help.
When it sais inactive sim it means that the sim card is falling out so get a small peice of paper and put it inbetween the sim card and the battery. It hasnt gon of since if you have any more questions text or ring me on 07896572552

Go to the Sony Ericsson website find the support page for your phone model and download the software update. Save all your contacts to your sim and anything else you wanna keep to your memory card. Then install the software update for your phone. For all those people wanting a repair manual here is the link.
the button to download the repair guide is at the bottom of the page.

Only download SONY ERICSON PC SUITE and repair the phone... there are steps you must follow!... for me it works... dont download to much themes or games... when I download them (about 300 themes and games) it crashed... so be carefull

The newest update seems to have solved the 'Operation Failed' problem for me. Just update the phone using Update Service. Don't forget to back your contacts up to the memory card, as well as the messages because they will all be lost otherwise.
Hope this helps.
