I got the say problem 2 days back. I read some pots in forums. This is what worked for me. First fully charge the phone some. Get a friend's phone or something. Then get ready with the data cable and your computer with internet.

Goto Sony ericsson site.

search for w810i SEUS Sonys update system.

At the bottom result it says"Sony Ericsson - Support - Update Service Compatible with K510i W810i W200i .

Click on that and dowload the program. At the right corner it

shows the phones which supports it.

install the program and run it.

do exactly what it says.

It worked for me. I got all my contacts and messages back.

Good luck

My htc screan wont come on iv tryed to reboot but still hasent come on


Hello,

When a phone screen is blank or has a white screen, etc, there are three things that could be the cause;

1. Bad/defective screen and the solution is screen replacement. (In your case, your screen might be failing). 2. Software/Virus problem and solution is to flash the phone 3. Flex problem and solution is to change the flex. In some cases the flex might have shifted or not in it's right position, in this case, just fix the flex back properly and all will be well.

Bad/defective screen:

If your phone is having a white screen, first thing to do is dismantle the phone carefully, check if the screen is properly fixed to the phone board, also check if screen flex is intact. Once you've confirmed that all these are okay and screen is not still coming up, then it means your screen is bad. You can go ahead and replace the screen.

Make sure you confirm the screen is bad before you do any replacement.

Software/Virus:

Sometimes software/virus problem on phones are mistaken to screen problem. When a screen is white or blank, sometimes it's a virus problem. To further confirm, turn on the phone, wait for about 2 minutes when you know the phone must have booted fully, then use another phone to call the phone with white or blank screen. If the phone rings, it means it's not a virus problem, but if it doesn't ring, it means it's a software/virus problem.

If you discover your phone has a virus problem, you will have to flash the phone for it to display again,

Flex problem

When your phone screen is blank, white, has horizontal/vertical lines, turn images up-side-down, etc, be calm, there is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out, that's why your screen is acting like any of the mentioned problem.

This is usually common with flip and slide phones. The flex worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone. Samsung and Motorola phones mostly have this kind of problems.

Replacing the flex is the only solution to this problem. If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be replaced.
Conclusion
Disassemble your phone and check the screen part in order to verify from the above which is actually the cause of the problem.
Please let me know if you need anymore assistance.
Regards.

My k618i flashes only whites screen, i cant do anything to my phone. if im going to turn it on, it vibrate and flashes white screen only. . i tried to remove my sim and open it again there's nothing...


The phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove or format the card. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone. If the phone hangs up then it is confirmed that the software is corrupt and will need a reinstallation. Seeking help from the authorized service /support centre is most ideal. Take estimate and decide.

My phone turns on , shows the nokia screen , then the screen goes white and then its turns off. please help


Hi, most problems with mobile phones when it turns white and goes off, is usually a problem with "VIRUS"on your mobile phone.

Causes are when your using mobile internet and you decide to do some downloads on your mobile, or can be through transferring DATA from a phone to another phone, transferring from PC to phone with out you noticing that you have downloaded VIRUS with applications without scanning for VIRUS before uploading it on your mobile phone.

So in this process, VIRUS then affects the cell phones memory and cell phones starts malfunctioning by switching off when you try to put it on,or make calls..

To rectify and solve this problem to be able to restore back the lost memory of then mobile phone, you will need to flash the cell phone.

Flashing the phone will restore back the phone to it normal state.

You can use this link to see how to flash your phone

Flashing a cell phone will erase carrier data from the memory. Cellular companies can usually do this for a fee. Online buyer sites sell the software kit that will flash a cell phone from home computers.

To flash a phone you will need to rewrite the PRL file by connecting your phone to a computer with the needed equipment. Your best bet is to take your phone to a dealer that flashes phones on a regular basis. For more information

I have Nokia 3110c. When I switch it on, NOKIA logo comes, screen flashes 3 times with white blank screen and goes off. It never comes again. It happens every time I press power on button. There is no...


Possible that the software of the phone is corrupt or a possible hardware is defective.
You can remove the battery and memory card, have the card scanned for virus. replace battery after 15 minutes so that the phone is reset.
if the phone wont boot back the services of the Nokia support must be sought for reinstalling the software.

Flashing white screen when i turn my phone on and nothing else.I cleaned it and all it does is flash.


Your phone needs to be flashed to work properly again. I think the phone software is corrupt and might have virus.

Also be sure the screen is not faulty

Take care
