    I have the same problem and it is not a charging issue. I have tried charging the phone with no luck. I have also tried using a known good battery with a good charge out of someone else's phone into mine with no effect.

    The phone does'nt start. My W580i flashes red when I try to turn it on. The lights also flash when I attach the charger.

    Same thing happened to mine. I had gotten it through an AT&T store and only had it for a few months, so I did the mail exchange- called AT&T and told them the problem, they mailed me a replacement phone and all the things I needed to mail back my broken phone. The only problem with this process is you lose EVERYTHING- pics, texts, calendar info- that was on your old phone and never get them back. This is a glitch with Sony Ericssons- my phone of the previous model did the same thing. Had to replace that one as well. Won't be getting another Sony Ericsson next time.

Sony W580i won't turn on. Blinking red light.

It turns out i found a solution to my problem. All you need to do is wait a few days and every day try turning it on several times. Mine turned on with 2% power. If you don't see the red light blinking then you probably need to charge it up then turn it on.

Try this.
  1. remove the battery
  2. press and hold the power-on button for 15 seconds
  3. release the power-on button
  4. connect the power supply
  5. with the battery still out, try turning the phone one
  6. if it works, disconnect the power supply
  7. reinstall the battery
  8. connect the power supply
  9. turn phone on
  10. allow phone to charge battery
If that works, you should be okay from that point on.

the EROM file on your phone is corrupted that is why it just flashes red and not boot-up, you need to have the EROM reflash for the phone to work again.
