Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i Cellular Phone

2 Answers

My Screen for my W580i is black, but side lights are on

Basicaly, the phone lights up, i.e. keypad and side lights and is turned on, however the screen is black. Is it a hardware problem? Will i need to take it in? As far as i am aware it hasnt been knocked heavily or damaged or submerged in water.. The problem occured fairly randomly and the screen flashed white a few times before going completely blank. There was also a peroid where the side lights were red, is that an error indication? thanks.

    my sony ericsson 810i phone fell down,and since after when ever i put it on the screen blinks.what wrong

    My phone was freezing up, so I finally took out the battery.

    Later I tried to turn on the phone, but the screen remains dark and the side blinks red.

    The phone doesn't recognize the charger either.

    Is the phone fixable or does it need to be taken in?

Hi,

This is most probably a software/firmware issue with the phone. Try updating the software with the Sony Ericsson update service.

If this doesn't work you will need to have it flashed with proper equipment,

More than likely you will need to replace the LCD screen. The backlight may have burned out making it blank or it the LCD connector may have come loose.

A new LCD screen runs about 15 dollars shipped from ebay2.gif.

The W580i LCD is easy, easy to replace. Probably one of the easiest I have ever done.

Check out the following link for instructions on replacing the LCD display and links to buy the screen.

Sony Ericsson W580i phone will not turn on


same thing happened to mine last year--you need to update the software: http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/detailed/updateservice/w580i?lc=en&cc=us
your phone should have come with a usb/computer hookup wire (it's gray). Download it onto your phone. It turns out that this same problem happened the other day (so I am downloading it now). it's the only problem ive had on this phone... hope it helps
