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.

I left a 1960 sears battery charger plugged into my boat battery, how long before it ruins the battery, when I forgot the battery was plugged in, it was fully charged.


Hey Mike, I can't find a Sears model #1960 charger, so I don't know the specs on it. If it is a typical old school 2 / 6 amp charger or any other that does not automatically shut off or switch to trickle charging, you may be in trouble in a day or two or longer - depending on the charge rate you picked and the percentage of full charge battery was before you connected it.

The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

Hello,why the phone is still shutting down is because the cell of the battery is weak and can power on the phone for to long, that's why it shots down so quick,

You will need to replace battery with a new one for longer talk hours.

Make sure you charge battery for 6hours before use.

Take care.

Phone not charging.
Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

W850i red light prob


When it is red light of death, it either means the bootloader of the phone is faulty (after uploading dodgy firmware updates), or the battery is too empty to start-up, let alone display charging progress. In your case you need to leave the phone charging even with the red light flashing and it will be fine. Give it a few hours connected to the charger.
