    I wanted to txt my friend and all of a sudden the phoen froze and it ddnt work, that was not the first time this happens so naturally, i took out the battery and placed it back in and i tried switching it on and it ddnt work (even though i had charged it up to 100% earlier that day) and i tried charging it and switching it on and i kept getting the red lights on the sides even though the phone was in the friggin' charger...ive had my phone for 8 months now and ive always experienced lags but thats just annoying!

I am so sorry to have to tell everyone the news about the problem with the red blinking light. i sent mine in for repair and i was told that it was a short on the main cuircut board. it can be repaired by replacing the circut board but it will cost more then the phone. i really hope that there may be something else wrong with everyone elses that might be fixable. i insured mine threw square trade so they refunded the cost of the phone and i got another one. they said it was a defect in the phone and that it wasnt anything that i did. they have seen a few come in like this. if you are having this problem and your phone isnt insured, then please goto sonyericsson.com and call them. hopefully they should replace the phone for you with their manufactures warrenty. but this will take a while. good luck!!!!

K770i wont turn on


This is usually a software issue on K series Sony Ericsson Handsets, try using the Sony Ericsson Update Service to Update or Re-Install the phones firmware... Its available to download from the Sony Ericsson support site if you dont already have it http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/phones/k770i?lc=en&cc=gb Remember though if your phone is unlocked, the unlock for these may have been a Flash Patch unlock so you might have to get it unlocked again afterwards...

Sony ericsson s500i won't turn on


Take the battery out, press the on button, wait 3 min, put the battery back in, press the on button and see what happens. If this doesn't work, try to borrow a different battery.

After that your probably looking at a brick.

Purpose of pressing the one button without the battery is to discharge any residual charges that might be causeing problems.
Good Luck.
