    my w850i has a red light under on/off switch, can't charge it, can't connect to PC, it started when my phone began freezing at the start up menu when phone is turned on, it continued to freeze quicker and quicker until it wouldn't turn on at all?

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.

Iam useing sony ericsson w850i for past 1 year.suddenly one day it was switched off if i seem to turn on it is flashing the red light.and now iam not useing that phone any ideas to turn on my phone back.


from my own experience and idea, I think that flashing light indicates low battery.

This is usually common with Sony ericsson phone, it flashes a red light once battery is low and you want to power is on.

Maybe should test your phone with another battery.

All the best.

Low Battery, Connected car charger, now is dead

May be the battery won't have charge, keep 1 or 2 hrs continues charges, and if it is not working then you have to replace the battery set full.

Sony ericsson w580i

the EROM file on your phone is corrupted that is why it just flashes red and not boot-up, you need to have the EROM reflash for the phone to work again.

I can on my w850i phone

Red blinking power button means low battery.

You'd better charge it... By the way, Li-ion batteries should not be drained completely. They will live more if you don't let your phone completely drain the battery before recharging it.

Hope this helps.
