When You try to start your phone the red light blinks and phone refuses to start.
if Your computer also does not identify your phone.
And its seems to be completely Dead..am i right???

Redlight blinking is a Sign of Low Battery or a Dead EROM.

  • his happens Some time during flashing the EROM goes dead or corrupt due to errors.
  • If phone has a bad EROM it shuts down and does not start even if battery is charged to full.
  • Double Check that battery is not the problem before you proceed to flash the EROM.
  • preoblem in EROM will lead to problem of the firmware or GDFS is corrupt
  • In that case we have to repair the EROM. And now here we will discuss the easiest way to fix it.
Note: Before you use SeTool 2 lite you will need to have USB flash drivers installed.
Please follow the USB flash driver installation tutorial (the given blue link) in tutorials section to install them. And kindly borrow your friend’s Sony Ericsson Phone to install usb drivers because your phone is dead.

Using SeTool2 lite 1.11 we can fix this problem by this way.
  1. Start SeTool 2 lite
  2. Press Unlock\Repair Button, The first button.
  3. Reinsert Battery
  4. Connect phone holding 2+5
  5. Wait, SeTool 2 lite will repair the EROM, it will flash it back.
  6. Done
Now you can start your phone.

Flashing red light means the battery is low. Allow it to fully charge.

My sony xperia T will not charge


Success story. Disclaimer I haven't notice any damage or
loss of data, However I take no responsibility for any damage or loss of data
that may occur.

My girlfriend has a xperia T and did let it go flat, since
then it didn't appear to charge or switched on.


I had tried allsorts suggested on various websites such as
plugging charger in and out a few times, leaving in charger for 24 hr, plugging
into laptop, and trying to power up with power button and volume up. Red light
sometimes lighting up or flashing but not staying lit.

After playing around with all of the above methods, I
noticed if I kept my finger on power while plugging into the charger or laptop
the red led stayed on until I let go. So I tied an elastic band around the
phone on the power button, then I plugged in the charger, unplugging it,
plugging in again with volume up pressed until I had the red led lit. Not sure
of which combination I did but just when the led was lit (not flashing). I left
it for a few hours while it was plugged in with the elastic band keeping
pressure on the power button. Came back to it and found the phone on and
battery at 100%.

Hope this helps some of you

When i turn on my iphone, the screen lights up but is blank


Hi!

You can try to restart your iPhone if that doesnt make any difference you can try to reset

To restart:
Hold down the hold button at the top right of the phone until a red slider appears onscreen. Slide it to turn the phone off and, when it's off, turn it back on again by holding down the hold button until the Apple logo appears.

To Reset:
Hold both the Home Button and the Hold button at the same time. Do this until the screen flashes and the Apple logo appears, indicating that the phone has restarted.

If none of the steps above fix the problem then contact Apple to check for repair options

GoodLuck!

It wont power on & has a red flashing light


2 things, first bad battery, sometimes bad battery works for few minutes then your phone just dies on you, it says its fully charged but it aint. That red light flashing only means that your phone has LOW BATTERY. 2nd your phone software has problem. If you have another ericsson that uses the same battery you can check it the battery is ok, its the only way you can find out if the battery is good. If the battery is doing ok with another cellphone then your cellphone software has problem.

Hi

Please contact a skilled mechanic nereby and request him to 'boost up' the VOLTAGE of your handset's battery which should be minimum 3.2.

Thanks.
