Question about Sony Ericsson K800i Cellular Phone
My phone has been working perfectly. I put it on the charger in my car and forgot about it. It was attached to the charger for over 24 hours. When I took it off the charger and tried to switch it on all I am getting is a blank white screen for a few seconds. the phone vibrates as I switch it on as if it was trying to 'boot up'. It will then not switch off again but after a few seconds it closes down. I have tried the battery in my other phone and it is OK and the chip in my other phone and it seems OK as well. I would be grateful for advise. jayeltoo
Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
This is a famous bug with SE Phones, know as WSOD (White screen of death), but no need to worry, IF you have the Data Cable of your phone. If you have it then proceed, because we without it, we will not be able to reprogram your Phone's firmware. The firmware is buggy and there is a utility by Sony Ericsson, named as SEUS (Sony Ericsson Update Service) what the program will do is make your phone as in Out of the box condition.
I've done it many times, as I'm a SE Lover, its easy and fast, and is also a good practice in order to extend your phone's life and stability.
Ok the program and other information you will need is all there on the SE site, and I've attached that link below.
This is the only free, tested and most efficient way to get your phone back.
