Question about AT&T Sony Ericsson W580i Cell Phone - White
My W580i went dead few days ago. I have checked the battery and I know it has enough juice. When I press the on/off button a red blinking light comes on for few seconds. Do you know what is wrong?
Dude, your firmware is corrupted. The solution is download the sonyericsson update service. The link is http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/download/1/110/61/1231338335/Update_Service_Setup-188.8.131.52.exe. Download the application and install it. After you install it open the application and agree to the terms and service. Then choose your phone model. Then when it asks to connect your phone just take out the battery and put it back again then plug the USB cable to the phone while pressing the C Button. Then the application will detect your phone and check the phone's software. If your phone's has the latest softwares just reinstall it. It will take about 15 minutes to finish the update. When it finishes unplug your phone from the computer then take out and reinsert the battery and switch your phone on.

My pink walkman has been through many adventures with me. Although my contract is up and my phone has its flaws, it still should work. I woke up this morning to find it plugged into the charger with the battery out of it, sitting right next to the phone. It probably got knocked off the bed for the millionth time in a row. But i tried to turn it on, and it vibrates once, like it normally does when it's supposed to turn on, but then it doesn't show anything. Just completly blank... no sound, no picture. nothing. whats wrong, and WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX IT. IM DEAD IF MY PARENTS FIND OUT,

Although this can be attributed to the battery it may also be a damaged/faulty EROM. This has happened on two Pink 580i belonging to my fiancee. Her phone blinked red, the PC wouldn't recognise it, however the following may help.
You need a copy of setool2lite_1.11 but be warned certain elements will most likely show up as a virus when you download it. I assure you it's just a false positive and the files are fine. When you use the tool ensure your internet connction is off and disable your antivirus program temporarily.
ensure you have Sony ericsson USB drivers installed before trying this procedure
The procedure to follow

Solution #2 ok, i had this same problem. the at&t store basically told me the phone was trashed and to just get rid of it. but first, i tried a solution on this thread, which was posted on Jun 05, 2009 by "kboydarkside". basically, it was a link to update the phone's software. ultimately, i had to reinstall the software (wiped out data on the phone, but that's a small sacrifice) . . .. but it worked like a charm!! :)

Call the customer service and tell them your phone just shuts off by itself. It's a flaw in the phone. Mine has done it several times. I sent mine back and they sent me a new one.
