Question about Lands Phones
So here's the problem:
My phone turned itself off then rebooted. Upon rebooting, I could no longer access messages (inbox, sent items, outbox etc etc). 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 with a black screen.
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.
Right, i had the same problem with mine and ive fixed it so i thought i'd share the info :)
The problem is the phones EROM is corrupted. In english that means that the phones "thoughts" are all messed up so it cant start up properly if at all.
What you need to do is "reflash" the phone. This basically means you need to reinstall the software. Head over to http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/phones/topic/updateserviceapplication/w910i?cc=gb&lc=en and download the update service. Once installed chose your phone (in this case the w910i) and follow the on screen steps. Once the update has started DO NOT DISCONNECT THE PHONE!! If you do it will cause the phone to corrupt possibly beyond repair. Once the update has completed take the battery out and put it back in again. Turn the phone on, be patient (wait several mins if you dont see anything) and it should boot up!
Thanks - hope this helped
