What I have found with my Walkman Phone is that the springiness of the contacts on the charger have degraded over time to the point where when I plug my phone in, I have to press firmly and wiggle/adjust the connection to the phone until the phone indicates that it is charging.

If there was a problem with your phone's battery, or the charging contacts on your phone, then the USB cord would not work. If you take a close look at your charger's connection you will probably see that the contacts do not all appear to be the same length anymore; this is why the cord isn't working.

I hope that helps.

My tomtom xl 335. se special edition does not take a charge. I had it on the car charger for 3 hours. Bill

hi wandskidd

use the usb cable provided with your tomtom and hook it to your computer for a few hours...that is the preferred way to charge a tomtom, then the car charger will keep a trickle charge on it.

When I put W880i on charging, there is a message that charging error stop charging. And then it is not getting charged.

try charging with the USB cable on a PC,if this works then it's got to be the charger that has a fault.if this doesn't then try cleaning the battery terminals or changing the battery if this doesn't work then you may have to take it to a mobile store to check the charging port.

Does the ativa ATIVA-MP400 player usea a power adapter to charge?

It is supposed to charge with either an adapter that plugs into the wall ie: DC 5V 400mA, or through a USB 2.0 port on your computer. The 1.1 USB ports do not carry enough current to properly charge any USB powered items.

Try putting it on charger and switch on the phone. My guess it that the charging mechanism has gone bad in the phone. also try charging the same battery on another phone which uses the same battery (if you can) this will tell you if hte battery is alright. Also try replacing the charger (just in case).
with the charger plugged in, try connecting the phone to the computer and take back up. also some of these phone (i am not sure about your model charges when connected to Computer. try that as well..
take care.

Sony Ericsson W880i won't turn on


Im about to make your day (Hopefully)

The same thing happened to me, i just fixed mines 2 minutes ago.

Follow this link

Download the software

and follow instructions.

it will even tell you how to connect to the computer
even if it doesnt switch on.

Follow it trust me it helped me :)

However some of your things might be lost.

But NOT Sim contacts.
Mines have not gone
so there is a possibility they might stay.

Its just a software update.

By the way, when you have to chose the phones from the menu

pick the w880 as their is no w880i option
it works the same

So there you go

same link

Good Luck :)
