    I have the same problem with my phone. And this is the second time happening to it. Last time I just kept it charged continuously for a few days and it just turned on. But this time it isn't working. So I am not sure. Oh and by the way I have the Pink one.. but its the same phone..

    I was in the middle of a conversation and my phone just cut off. My battery was fully charged before it cut off, but i put it on the charger to see if it would come on. When i plugged it up, it didn't come on. The battery bar didn't even come on like it usually does. When i try turning my phone on, it just vibrates a little bit and that's it. My mom has the same phone so i put her battery in my phone. It didn't turn on, but when i put my battery in her phone, her phone turned on. Obviously it isn't my battery, but it's my phone. Can someone please help?!

Dude, your firmware is corrupted. The solution is download the sonyericsson update service. The link is 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

  1. Start SeTool 2 lite
  2. Press Unlock\Repair Button, The first button.
  3. Reinsert Battery
  4. Connect phone to USB cable holding 2+5 and keep held down
  5. Wait, SeTool 2 lite will repair the EROM, it will flash it back.
  6. Job done

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.

Yes there is a reset. After you have opened the phone and let it dry a few days, put in the battery and hold the power and volume down button for about 6-10 seconds. This will then start the boot sequence.

Dead phone

I know this sometimes happens with these smart phones; one day they just up and quit.
You could try a fresh battery, and check your charging source.
Mine did something similar a couple days ago - I thought it was charging all night long, and in the morning when I went to turn it on... nothing. It ended up being my charging cable, it wasn't putting any juice to the phone.

HTC evo went dead. Battery does not seem to charge when plugged in and does not start. Removing battery and insterting did not help. Cant do a reset since the thing will not start

Mine did the same thing I think the protection on the phone to shut it off when it reaches low lvl did not work I had to put my battery in my hero to get it recharged so there must be a flaw with the phone charging a completely dead battery maybe it has to have enough juice to know it has a battery in it ......

Phone Fired

Phone, you need a new one, fatal error, means something inside of your phone is fried. Charger, are you sure the outlet is good for electronics, sometimes the outlet is a dud after a while, even in newer homes, that is a possible problem, or you're getting the wrong charger, sometimes there isn't enough volts, or too many and can ruin yur battery, if you would like the perfect charger, google it, and figure out the perfect charger for your phone.

My battery went dead this morning i charged it this evening and it is just showing a battery and timer wont switch on or charge??

from what I hear, you have either fully charged your battery or your battery is pretty much completely dead.

your options:

1. If it's completely dead and won't hold a charge it's time to purchase another battery, this happens from time to time so don't freak out about it.
2. If it's fully charged, try taking the battery completely out of the phone, and re-inserting it after a few minutes, sometimes cell phones need to be reset.
3. ensure that your charger is working properly, if its not getting juice to it neither is your phone.
4. try to dial your number just to see what happens to the phone.
5. if someone else u know has a charger like yours try to borrow theirs to charge your phone possibly ruling out a bad charger

Battery won't charge.


normally many cell phones requires 6-10hrs for its batter to fully charge up. also i have seen it where battery can be brand new but doesn't have enough juice to hold the charge.
now as far as red light on charger, remember even if you have 99% charged batter and you plug in the charger it will show you red light on phone/cradle.

FYI- all brand new phones are covered with 30 days of warranty replacement with new phone. after 30 days it covers upto 1 year from the date of purchase with refurbished phones.

In your case i think it is just the battery, try having your provider replacing new battery if no luck again then my suggestion will be to replace your phone with new battery with in 30 days.
