Question about Sony Ericsson P1i

P1i full phone memory

My P1i's phone memory is full I presume because it suddenly turned off by itself and would not turn on again.No light, no vibrate. At first I thought it was the battery but it seemed to work on my brother's P1i. I tried connecting my phone to my PC and since the unit is turned off, the PC would not recognize it. Fortunately, I have back-up files of every photo, song, word file, video, theme and phone number saved on my phone memory. My only problem now is how to make it work again. I have no problem with all my files being deleted as long as my phone functions again. I'm too afraid to go to any cellphone repair shop in my city because they change phone parts with fake ones. How can I solve this problem using my own PC? Please help me!!!

Solution Description:

  1. Log on to: http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/p1i?cc=hk&lc=en
  2. Download and install Update Service on your computer to keep the software in your phone up-to-date and ensure optimum performance from your phone.
  3. When the download is complete, an Update Service shortcut will be created on your desktop.
  4. While still connected to the Internet, click the ‘Update Service’ shortcut icon on your desktop
  5. Sony Ericsson window will pop up and downloading will begin. Allow the downloading to run complete to 100%
  6. Another Sony Ericsson window showing different countries’ languages will pop up, select your preferred language.
  7. Sony Ericsson ‘Welcome to Update Service’ window will pop up, showing ‘Exit’ on the left-hand side and ‘Start’ on the right-hand side.
  8. Click the ‘Start’ icon and select ‘Agree’ on the ‘Term of Use’ page that pops up
  9. Select your phone type and click on ‘Continue’
  10. Highlight your specific phone type and select ‘Continue’
  11. Follow the instructions as shown below:
- Make sure your phone is fully charged
- Connect the USB cable to a USB port on your computer
- Turn off your phone
- Remove and reinsert the battery
- Press and hold the ‘C’ button down while plugging the USB cable to the computer
- Continue to hold the ‘C’ button down until the instruction number ‘7’ on the Update Service comes up (i.e. Instructing you to ‘Release the ‘C’ button)
  1. Allow the update to run to the end
  2. When the system informs you that the latest update has already been installed on your system, click on ‘Continue Anyway’
  3. Click ‘Yes’ to all subsequent questions
  4. Allow the update to fully run to the end
  5. When update is complete, disconnect the USB from the computer and phone
  6. Remove and reinsert the phone battery
  7. Power on your Sony Ericsson P1i phone
  8. Congratulation!!!

NB: since the phone is not powering on, you may not be able to know whether the battery is fully charged. Hence, you will need to use a Sony Ericsson Deskstand. Connect the Battery Charger to its slot on the Deskstand and the USB cable to its slot simultaneously. This enables the battery to charge while the update is also running.

Error Message on SE P1i


Ok, follow closely, here's what you need to do, first warm up your truck, then go in your garage and grab a hammer, then with a full thrust motion hit the phone at full strength and dont forget to grunt at the same time you exhale, then hop in your now warm truck, put it in reverse backing over any left behind pieces on your way to the store you bought the phone from and pick out another one. On your way home try digging into your memory bank about phones that only called and recieved calls BUT LASTED!!!!!!!! Good luck.
