Question about Sony Ericsson Z610i Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Battery suddenly will not charge.

My Z610i is only a few months old and suddenly yesterday when I plugged in the charger, the backlight no longer came on when I opened it! The phone still appears to be working, but without a backlight, it is useless! Also, despite the external display showing "Optimized Charging", the battery continued to go flat. No charge has been accepted by the battery since. I tried switching it off and when I switched it back on, it seemed to work normally, with the backlight coming on OK, but as soon as I plugged the charger back in, it returned to the earlier symptoms, still no charge going into the battery despite the display saying it is, and no backlight. Switching off/on restores normal operation again, then plugging in charger makes symptoms return.

    OK, thanks Ahmadg2 I'll see if a new charger fixes it. Seems odd that the phone still says it's being charged, though, and why would it affect the backlight?

    Hey, thanks guys, I'm looking forward to my charger dying now! I opened the phone and found that a drop of water had entered via the mic. orifice and caused some corrosion around resistors just underneath the hole, what a brilliant peice of design that is! Eventually after a couple of days the phone had dried out enough to start working again but I was curious to see why it had died the way it did. I cleaned it up and it is fine now. Thanks again for your support.

Do you still have the old battery. If so charge it, and see if it charges properly. If so then you have a bad battery.

Hi, I couldn't say what's wrong without looking at it but here are a few things to try:
First, be sure that there is power. some laptops report 'plugged in' simply because the plug is in the computer. Check fuses etc.
Second, remove the plug and then remove the battery. replace battery and re-plug the charger. This should reset the electrical system.

Hope this helps,

All of a sudden it will not turn on....nothing...when plugged into the say fully charged....but if you disconnect..and try to turn it on.....nothing happens..

If you can turn your player on while being plugged to your PC/Laptop or USB charger, then your internal Lion battery is most likely gone past its useful life (some 500 charges or 18 months usage) and may need replacing. Most MP3 player may show 'fully charged' when plugged in either when the battery is truly fully charge or defective battery is no longer taking a charge: e.g. minimum or no current flow situation.
